Lego has officially unveiled the Kingfisher, a beautiful and realistic bird model flapping its way into stores on 1st February.

Following on from Lego’s ‘Botanicals’ range, the Lego Icons Kingfisher forms part of a brand new ‘fauna’ collection. It’ll be the second set, joining the Macaw Parrots which released earlier this month.

Like all Lego Icons sets, the Kingfisher is aimed at adults, offering a delicate and intricate build which leads to a model that makes an excellent display piece. Despite costing just £44.99/$49.99, it’s made of 834 pieces, making this a surprisingly decently-sized set. We expect a lot of little pieces, but with a wingspan of 12 inches/30cm, the finished model will be plenty big enough.

We love the colours here, with the Kingfisher’s orange chest providing an eye-catching juxtaposition to the vibrant blue of its wings. It’s perched on a display plinth decorated to look like water, and two reeds stick out from behind it, providing some contextual detail.
