At age 2, Albert was diagnosed with severe hypothyroidism and island gigantism, growing more than 20x the size of a normal penguin.
"Polar ice cap specialists have recently noticed the cracking of enormous glacial continents. We looked into the problem, and have discovered the largest penguin documented." - Ice Cap Specialist, Franklin E. Hibberts
Albert can't move, and relies on his colony to climb up his body and toss fish into his mouth.
"We've noticed that when temperatures get unbearably cold, the entire penguin colony simply stands under Albert, it's a mutual system, they feed Albert, and he keeps them warm in harsh times."- Penguin Research Expert, Prof. Tim Tiggles .
Of course, this is all in good fun, this build was inspired by Caleb Robinson's comment on my last creation, noting that the sphere looked like a penguin. This sparked an interest, and I whipped this micro-scale creation up in a few hours.
Well, that's all I have for now. I have a Vic Viper I'm hoping to upload next week, as well as a new Bionicle creation, which I haven't built with for a while.
As always, thanks for taking the time check this out.
Pretty sweet! Some advice: take four of those half-pin things (the tube with a stud on top)http://im2.ebidst.com/upload_big/3/3/0/1292769059-31253-0.jpg that one, and put them on the bottom of your main SNOT ice surface. Then, put a flat tile (2x2) on it, and it will be studless. You can do that (but with 1x2's) for the other ones as well. Otherwise, great job!
