123 Sesame Street

Big Bird minifigure UPDATED

On

I'm constantly looking for new ways to make improvements to my original design for LEGO Sesame Street. However, since I was originally building most everything using LEGO Digital Designer, the software did not have access to new LEGO pieces that have been introduced in recent years.

Using Studio, I recently came across "Plate with Flower Edge (part #24866)." It has allowed me to add a 'feathered' look around Big Bird's neck. I think it greatly enhanced the overall likeness of the character. Check out the updated design below!

DID YOU KNOW… In 2015, Sesame Street introduced Julia, a four-year-old girl with autism, as part of an initiative aimed to reduce the stigma of autism. Due to the positive response to the initiative, Julia was made into a physical Muppet and debuted in a 2017 episode of Sesame Street. For this April's Autism Awareness Month, Sesame Workshop is introducing Julia's family on the program as a way to show the challenges and similarities that a family like Julia's faces in everyday life.

Discarded Ideas: Abby Cadabby

On

 

When I designed LEGO Ideas: 123 Sesame Street, there were several characters and accessories that didn't make it into the final set submitted. Abby Cadabby was one of those characters I really wanted to include. Unfortunately, I could not find a hairpiece that could be a perfect match for the character's likeness. Following LEGO Ideas' guidelines, I wasn't allowed to create new pieces for the set. Here's a quick look at the closest I could get to capturing the character's likeness using existing parts.
