You see, this is exactly why I need a small child as part of my household staff. From the moment I saw this magnificent turkey, I have been dying to have one on my Thanksgiving table… and I'm not even hosting Thanksgiving! But I will if I can somehow acquire such a fine bird. I actually put in a request with my favorite LEGO wunderkind for a living, cross-sectioned turducken. Stay tuned for updates...
- The Martha Stewart Crafts Dept. featured this amazing turkey, created by Tom Poulsom. He's made countless birds (I think my favorite is the snowy owl), and made the turkey at the Martha team's special request. Maybe he'll make me a turducken!
- At the opposite end of the LEGO turkey spectrum, you have Brickfrenzy's "Revenge of the Lego Turkey Mecha", featured by Gizmodo. I am neither warlike nor fond of weaponry, but that would be awesome on a Thanksgiving table. Besides, the turkeys should be able to fight back.
- You guys, searching for images of "LEGO ______" is really, really fun. For example, "LEGO pie"! Model Building Secrets showed off the pies and cakes of the talented Eric Constantino — so, so cute.
- I'm not sure I have this right, but from reading the comments it seems that Jordan "Sir Nadroj" Schwartz has created mashed potatoes for MOCpages using… LEGO hair.
- A LEGO harvest tableau would make a darling centerpiece. You could have little farmer guys putting actual rolls & veggies into their wheelbarrows like A Lego A Day did…
- Or you could have Stormtroopers harvesting your feast right under your eyes. Terrifying, and awesome. This photo is by Jennatrix and is available as a print from deviantART.
- The last thing I have to show you is not a centerpiece, but rather a treat for your resident LEGOmaster: A Golden Afternoon not only made homemade cranberry sauce in a classic can mold, but made cranberry sauce LEGOS! Fantastic.
