The origional Griffon Beast was started about a year ago as a side project. I was never quite satisfied and so last weekend I spent about six hours re-building it into a true griffon. In case you don't know a griffon is a mythical beast with the wings, head and front legs of an eagle and the body of a lion. Personally I believe this version far surpasses the origional in all aspects. Take a look for yourself and please leave comments, I always appreciate hearing from other lego enthusiasts.
