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.
Today’s entries give us a couch (Friends), a turkey on a table with a wine bottle and two glasses (City), and a speeder bike with a cargo sack containing a Christmas present (Star Wars).
Today we get two new minifigures (a policeman for City and someone I don’t recognize for Star Wars) and a bedside table for Friends. The cop has a coffee mug and handcuffs, which is kind of an odd combination…
A couple of weeks ago, The Brothers Brick announced a Chibi Micro Contest inviting people to build and submit models along the same lines as the Star Wars Microfighters style (like the awesome Millennium Falcon), with models that are a bit too small for the minifigs that fly them. When I saw this I immediately thought of Snoopy and the Red Baron from the Peanuts comic strip (and corresponding TV specials) by Charles Schulz. Continue reading
Looks like after a long 6-day run the Friends kitchen has come to an end, as today we get a hearth. City adds a trailer to yesterday’s snowmobile, and Star Wars adds to the Hoth theme with a snowball gun (ion cannon?)
The 16th day of the LEGO Advent Calendars is a bit underwhelming. Friends continues the kitchen theme with some baked goods (I think); City gets what appears to be a police snowmobile, and Star Wars has a snowspeeder pilot to go with yesterday’s micro build.
For the 15th day of the LEGO Advent Calendars we get a dog with a bone in a bowl for City, the Friends kitchen continues with a sink, and Star Wars has a micro scale snow speeder.
(Sorry again for the late posting folks!)
Today Friends continues the food theme with an assortment of edibles: carrots, turkey legs, glasses of pink champagne, and some sort of pastry with a green topping? City gives us a sled, I guess for yesterday’s robber to get away on. Star Wars continues the Tatooine thread with a moisture vaporator.
Today we get two minifigs – a robber with a flashlight and a knapsack with a jewel, and I presume Anakin Skywalker. For Friends, we continue the kitchen theme with a cabinet with a block of cheese under a glass bell jar and a salt and pepper shaker.
Apologies for getting this one out after midnight again…
