Fantastic Beasts (And Where To Find Them)

Dragons are easy. A dragon can look like anything and still be a dragon, because they are fully imaginary and they really can look like almost anything.

A griffin, on the other hand, is assembled from the parts of real creatures, so it’s much more of a challenge to build. Lion’s body and back legs, eagle’s head,front legs and wings, plus those unusual tufted or pointed ears that I always imagine as being like those of a lynx.

This is my attempt.

I’d have liked a couple of those “+”-shaped plates for the front feet, but what I have works ok. I only have one of those, and it’s lavender, which would really add a rather sucky element to this.

Poseability of this is pretty extreme. The neck, tail, wings and legs all have multiple parts of articulation; I could only do better if I could figure out a way to get a working jaw.

    Cool build, Saurian! I’ve never really seen a Lego griffin before, and while this isn’t perfect it’s a pretty good representation. The horn on the front really makes it. Excellent work!
