If you’ve built the LEGO Brick Calendar 853195, you might have discovered that it’s a real pain to rearrange it each month. So I’ve created my own version, using the parts from that set plus others from my collection, to create a better version:
This year I built a set of Christmas ornaments that I gave to someone special as a gift. I haven’t posted a MOC (My Own Creation) in a while, so I thought I’d share them with you all too. Continue reading
3 Advent Calendars.
9 mini spaceships.
3 gun emplacements.
3 Christmas trees (including the droid).
Having built all 72 models, I’ve come up with some winners for the best model in each category. Continue reading
Here are some roundup photos of some of the highlights from this year’s LEGO Advent Calendars. Continue reading
Last day of our Advent Calendar – December 24th, Christmas Eve.
The final entry for Friends seems a little underwhelming to me – a storage box for a camera and some ice skates? Strange combination.
City gives us a nice traditional Santa Claus, complete with chocolate chip cookie.
Star Wars continues with its wacky take on Christmas with Darth Claus. Okaaaay.
Happy Christmas Eve Eve. Only one more shopping day – are you ready??
Today the LEGO Advent Calendars bring us another Christmas tree (Friends), a trike (City), and a somewhat sinister looking hearth (Star Wars). Along with yesterday’s goofy Christmas Tree droid, I like the way the LEGO Star Wars is approaching the advent calendar with a sense of humor and hope tomorrow’s is even better…
Just one more left!
Seriously LEGO Star Wars? A Christmas Tree droid???? Gosh.
City has a more conventional tree, and Friends brings us a gift to put under it.
I finally found my lightbox and took some better pictures with a real camera of my chibi Snoopy and the Red Baron. I still don’t think the photos are as good as they can be – in some ways the original ones taken on my phone are better – but at least the lighting is better I think. I still haven’t done the crosses for the Red Baron’s tail and wings though. Continue reading
Happy Solstice! Today is the shortest day and longest night of the year. Today in our LEGO Advent calendars we get a speaker and controls (Friends), a wrapped gift and a stocking (City), and a Y-Wing Fighter (Star Wars). The Star Wars one comes with tons of extra parts!
Today’s LEGO advent calendars give us a cute kitten (Friends), a barrel with a shovel and an axe and a couple of round things (City), and an Imperial Shuttle (Star Wars). Hard to imagine three more different models. I really don’t get what the City one is supposed to be for, but we get a bonus one of each tool.
