A dinosaur- Edwardsaur
Hi. I'm Professor Scientifik and I work at NXT Mechanics University.
About this creation


I have been reading books writen by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and I eventually tumbled upon The Lost World. It got me into creating Lego dinosaurs. Seriously, dinosaurs are cool! Okay, now, let's start the speech. Uhuuum (clears throat)... my archeologist team recently discovered a LIVE dinosaur specimen while digging in South America. Quoting Mr.Edward Kimby, the first person who has set eyes on it since the last millions of years; "We were quietly digging when something of a rustling sound quiet near us. I looked up and, to my huge amazement, saw a REAL dinosaur head looking down at me. I could roughly see the creature's body through the vegetation. I want to bring your attention to it's physical appearance. The dinosaur's skin was green, a green that could very well serve as camouflage in these woods. The next amazing detail was it's legs. It's legs were very unusual; at the knee, they were bent backwards, not forwards! The next moment, we were running for our lifes, for we thaught it was, like most of its kind, carnivore. Later studys, when we have recovered ourselfes and captured that specimen, showed that it was actually herbivore and belonged to the therapode class. I have never heard of a herbivore dinosaur that is in the therapode sub-class. All therapodes are carnivore, and yet, there it was! Nature and life are full of surprises!"
Later, when that specie was classified and recognised, there just had to be a name to it! Well, why not the name of the persone who discovered it? Well... okay. So, it was named Edwardsaur.

Creator's post-scriptum
My motivation for this model came with the thought "What if I made a cute little dinosaur for my beloved sister?". Of course, I just had to make it herbivore, so it gets more goody-goody. I really like this model because it's very compact-sized and because I simply find it cute. Enjoy! Just give me credit if you would like to use it somehow. As well, I want to point out that this dinosaur can attach both of it feet on plate at the same time, which makes it really functional. Also, it can move a lot of its limbs, which I really enjoy. (You can't make it stick to a plate on LDD due to some sort of misfunctions.)

O.K.... Maybe the legs bent backwards at the knee are a little more than uggly. I will be making another version of this with normal dino legs. Stay tuned to our dino group! (The Dinosaur Group)
