This cute little guy is my entry for BBC #65, which is also a drastic revamp of the Terra Nui Hummaera Rahi I made a while ago. That old version, coincidentally, was the first thing I posted on Flickr. So this revamp was long overdue, and when BBC #65 came along, it was the perfect opportunity for me. Because the old Hummaera, cute as it was, looked little like a hummingbird.
I'm very pleased with how the new one turned out. In particular, I was able to use a lot of my new pearly gold pieces on it, such as Hero Factory for the beak, and the awesome new Legends of Chima sets for the tail feathers. The Hummaera now features a movable head, wings, tail feathers, and toes -- although without a perch, he has to stand on his claws in an odd posture. Oh well. It's also only slightly larger than the largest real hummingbird, which is cool.Aside from the fact that it needed a revamp, I was partly inspired to make the Hummaera after I saw Epic, since I could not get the awesome image of riding hummingbirds out of my mind.
