Advent 2017 Recap

I was going to post this on the 25th, but the holiday celebrations got in my way. Anyway here’s an overview of what we found in this year’s City, Friends, and Star Wars LEGO Advent Calendars.

I’ll start with the leftovers. Every LEGO set gives you some extra parts of the smaller elements. LEGO sets are packed by weight, and to make sure they haven’t accidentally shorted you on the parts, they give an extra one of the lightest-weight elements. Also I bet these are the ones kids are most likely to lose. In any case, when you have 24 x 3 = 72 models there end up being quite a few of these small parts:

There was just one human figure, but six animals (seven if you include the fish). I guess the theme is Heartlake City Winter Pet Show.
