Advent 2017 Day 8

We’re now a third of the way through the Advent Calendars, and today we get grandma with some cookies (City), another sled (Friends), and a box with a gun and a wrench (Star Wars). The Christmas Build-Up model today is an igloo, and I built a dragster race car with leftover parts.

City’s model is a nice older lady with some cookies. Mrs. Claus or your grandma? You be the judge.

Sleds seem to be a popular theme in all the calendars. Here’s another one. Or maybe it’s more of a sleigh, as it has an attachment to be pulled.

Every year Star Wars gives us at least one “gun rack” and this year is no exception. We get a box with a wrench in it too. I don’t remember these being prominent features of the movies, but it seems to be very popular among LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar designers.

For Christmas Build-Up we get a little igloo.

With the leftovers I built a dragster. Yeah I know the front wheels aren’t on the ground, but there weren’t a lot of wheel parts to work with in this set.
