Advent 2017 Day 14

Two weeks in, only ten days until Xmas! Today’s Advent calendars give us a container ship from City, another sled trailer from Friends, and a The Force Awakens snowtrooper from Star Wars. The Christmas Build-Up model is a cute little lighthouse, and I used the leftover parts to build a Miniland scale human as a crossing guard.

Friends gave us a sled that can be towed behind a snowmobile or something…

Here you can see a side by side comparison with the previous stormtrooper from a week ago. It’s the same guy in a different outfit!

Christmas Build-Up makes the shore safe for shipping with this lighthouse:

Speaking of safety, I used the leftover parts to build a figure of a girl. I had a hard time doing the arms in a realistic way, but then had the brainstorm that she could just be holding a stop sign and be a school crossing guard!
