Something to Crow about!

LegogeekLegogeek Orange County, CaliforniaMember Posts: 711
Fear not, this isn't a complaint! 

I'll start by saying I'm a long time member of Brickset, but an infrequent user of the Forum, so forgive me if this isn't the proper place to post this. I remember when there was a more direct way to communicate with ambassadors...

So, what's up? Well, I just wanted to say I wish we had crows! Yes, crows! My town needs crows. What am I talking about, you ask? Is he mad, you ask? I don't know and Yes are the answers! You see, I've been on a bit of a LEGO animal buying kick lately and I've been stocking up on all sorts of critters to populate my LEGO City, zoo, and woods. After buying a bunch of seagulls and parrots and owls.... I thought gee-wiz, how easy it would be for LEGO to use the seagull mould to make crows -yes, you heard me correctly! Just use black plastic and voilà, you'd have a crow. That's it. That's my pitch. Please make it so.

Thank you!

    Yeah, I know..... but it's too small, and as you can see it doesn't have a proper stud attachment.

    I know there is this too....



    ...but a seagull in black would look so much better. 

    Just imagine this in black.

    The connector is perfect for attacking Friends minidolls!

    I do believe the crow post fits in the hole of the nipple. I plan on using this method for my custom The Crow minifig to hold his crow.

    Ah... interesting - Thanks! I'll make note of that!

    But I still want black seagulls! ;P

    Use a sharpie.

    Yeah, it does. I've also used it in the past to carry off these ladybirds and beetles ...

    I would love to see more birds. The owls are great and the classic raven/parrot are nice but there is a lot more that could be added even by recolor.

    Given given that there is a crow piece, there are so many other moulded animal pieces I’d like to see more.

    i was really hoping the boggart Snape would have the crow recoloured in a brown colour for the vulture to go on the hat but no such luck.

    Nothing wrong with a coat of primer and the finishing color of your choice.
