Some people criticize Bionicle (Lego’s pseudo-action-figure line of models) for being too simplistic, and worse, claim the elements are unfit for most models. The accusation is, Bionicle’s many specialized parts are designed to make imaginary creatures look scary, making them unfit for models that aren’t intended to look scary. Well, Matt “Monsterbrick” Armstrong’s lovely griffin model doesn’t exactly disprove this myth but it sure is beautiful.

(For less scary uses of Bionicle, see Guy Himber’s Clockwork Mahi-Mahi, Juho Taurianinen’s Wheelchair, as well as Robiwan Kenobi’s Swiss Army Knife.)
