The kākāpō (Strigops habroptila) is an iconic flightless, nocturnal parrot that is endemic to New Zealand. The kākāpō is critically endangered with a population of only 149 individuals.
I chose to design and build a kākāpō as I am passionate about New Zealand and its unique wildlife. Weighing in at whopping 251 grams, this build is made of 473 parts and measures 10cm x 22cm x 9cm (or 10cm x 22cm x 22cm with the wings fully extended).
- Features posable wings and tail feathers
- Great display piece, or fully swoopable if you're into breaking rules
- The eyes are printed tiles as found in the Brickheadz sets
- The most partying parrot on the internet!
Great for both conservation and conversation:
Mate - "Hey bro, what's that thing?"
You - "Lego kākāpō."
Mate - "Sweet as."
You too can contribute to kākāpō recovery and conservation by adopting your own kākāpō
