This Shoebill Has a Problem With You

You’ve obviously done something to piss him off and I’d say you’ve only got a couple of minutes to figure it out and apologize before he cracks your head like a walnut.  The build comes courtesy of one of the all time greats in the hobby, the inimitable Mr. Moko.  For you trivia fans, Balaeniceps Rex (also known as whalehead or shoe-billed stork), is native to tropical east Africa and can be found in large swamps from Sudan to Zambia. In case you were wondering, the eye-catching beak is an arm-guard from set #75112 General Grevious, part of a line of big figures that I have apparently not paid enough attention to.  At first I wasn’t sure if I liked the 1×2 tiles on the wings, but they have grown on me over time.  If it’s all the same to you, constant reader, I’m just going to slip out the back door without any more of my typical blathering.  He looks really mad.
