This was a creation I made back in 2006. It consisted of 3000+ pieces, and many long nights! The Velociraptor stood two feet high, and was three and a half feet long. It was entered into the county fair of which it claimed first place in its class.
I love to build with all of different Lego bricks and styles, but Technic has always been my thing. As a committed Lego builder, 100% Lego in all creations is the standard. That said, this project bends that rule with electrical tape to form the slits in the eyes. Other than that, it is 100% Lego.
This project was the kick starter to renewing the joy of being a builder again. Much to my wife's chagrin, shortly after these photos, it was dismantled in order to make way for greater creations. Thanks for looking!
