The Ornithopter

Dune was always one of my favorite Sci-fi books, and #denisvilleneuve made a masterpiece. The movie was absolutely fantastic, but the star of the show was the amazingly beautiful Ornithopter. Like the Spinner, Tumbler , and Aliens Dropship - this will be one of those iconic things LEGO fans will build for generations to come.

 

I've been plucking away at this build ever since I saw the movie (opening night!), going through several iterations to try to LEGOfy. Never have I had such a hard time with balance in a build due to both the tail and long wings (can you spot the LEGO magnet weights? :P)

 

Thank you @georgehulldesign - for creating this truly ironically amazing design and @coliewertz who created the 3D design that was subsequently used in the film. I'm always blown away at your creativity.
