Advent 2011 Day 1

Day 1 of the LEGO City and Star Wars Advent Calendars for 2011.

In City we get our first minifig, a dangerous convict holding a marshmallow, which he is obviously planning to turn into a shiv.

The Star Wars box builds a nice little spaceship. I’d like to tell a little story about it, but I got nothin’. I am assuming it’s from Clone Wars, but I’m not familiar with that part of the canon. But it’s not a bad little collection of parts.

I reshot the photo to fix the white balance on 12/2, but it’s still really dark.

  1. My kids have both of the calendars, my son has Star Wars and my daughter City. Thanks for clearing up the marshmallow thing … we couldn’t figure out what that was supposed to be!

    My son says that he believes the ship to be from Episode 1. It appears at the very beginning and is shown when Qui-Gon and Obi-Won disembark. Then it blows up. :)

    Enjoy your calendars … I know we will!!

  2. Thanks. To be honest I like to be kind of silly with the explanations of the Advent calendars, so take it with a grain of salt. I think LEGO means for it to be a snowball.
