LEGO Elves 2018 – The Fire Lion, the Wind Wyvern and the Earth Fox

Today is #ElvesDay

After the Eagle and the Water Turtle, we’re continuing our journey of exploration of the creatures from the new LEGO Elves sets. The stars of this week’s #ElvesDay are the Fire Lion, the Wind Wyvern, the Earth Fox.

The Fire Lion

The lion is found in set 41192 Azari & The Fire Lion Capture.

I had high expectations for this one. Although the lion works well against a warm sunset backdrop, I’ve often struggled with getting the photos I wanted. When it comes to photography, I’d rather choose the Fire Dragon over the Lion.

The Fire Lion enjoyed the snow in Oulu

The Whirlpools in Saltstraumen
The ice on Kuivasjärvi
The hot summer in Reine
And one of the most dramatic sunsets at the top of Flakstadtinden

The Wind Wyvern

The Wind Wyvern comes with 41193 Aira & the Song of the Wind Dragon.

Technically a Wyvern rather than a real Dragon. It was a pleasure to photograph in the snow. The legs are surprisingly well balanced and it’s very easy to pose. Overall I didn’t take so many pictures of it and I can’t wait for winter to come back so I can take more pictures of that awesome Wyvern.

The light purple color of the Wyvern works so well against the colors of a winter sunset.
And can stand on its own at the top of a pile of snow.

The Earth Fox

The fox is found in set 41194 Noctura’s Tower & the Earth Fox Rescue.

It has great posability but I struggle with the color. I find that green doesn’t mix well with the winter colors. In the summer, it’s the opposite and it blends too much into the background. Overall I love the fox but would have preferred it to be orange like an actual fox (or white as an Arctic fox?).

Summer in Finland.

Next week we’ll have a look at the last two creatures from the two Elves sets released during the summer.
