3. Cool construction.
This LEGO® origami crane features a tilting head and wings that flap up and down. At just 51 pieces it would not be a complex build, with its LEGO®-safe techniques, yet it would still be satisfying enough with some advanced SNOT (studs not on top) construction involved. See the cross-section view with colored bricks. A small groove in the back also makes it possible to hang the crane if desired.
4. Production made easy.
The small model size means the potential cost is kept low. This design does not require any new LEGO® element molds. There would be no conflict with current LEGO® themes and licenses as this origami crane is a totally new idea.
The inexpensive build and inherent message of peace would make this LEGO® origami crane an attractive bulk order for schools, government agencies and non-government organizations.
This LEGO® origami crane could be presented on its own, or it could be part of a series of related LEGO® peace symbols that could include the Hiroshima Peace Memorial (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A-Bomb_Dome) and the Japanese Peace Bell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Peace_Bell).
Please vote for this origami crane! Thank you.
