Just wanted to show you this cute LEGO elephant designed by LEGO fan and flickr member Bangoo H. The new printed eye pieces opened up a lot of opportunities to create very expressive brick-built creatures, and this elephant is just one of them. Bangoo also designed other adorable LEGO animals including dogs, cats, koalas, and pandas – with instructions included. The nice thing is that all of these animals require few LEGO elements and can easily be built by most LEGO fans. 🙂
As you see this LEGO elephant is pretty simple. All you need is some basic bricks, slopes, a few plates and of course those eyes. If you don’t have all the elements in the right color, don’t worry – rainbow colored elephants are the best! And you can also buy missing pieces either from BrickLink.com, or directly from LEGO’s Pick-A-Brick shop.
So what do you think? How do you like these LEGO animals? Have you built other creatures with the new printed eyes? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
