3 Advent Calendars.
9 mini spaceships.
3 gun emplacements.
3 Christmas trees (including the droid).
Having built all 72 models, I’ve come up with some winners for the best model in each category. Continue reading Advent 2014 Awards
Here are some roundup photos of some of the highlights from this year’s LEGO Advent Calendars. Continue reading Advent 2014 Round-Up
Last day of our Advent Calendar – December 24th, Christmas Eve.
The final entry for Friends seems a little underwhelming to me – a storage box for a camera and some ice skates? Strange combination.
City gives us a nice traditional Santa Claus, complete with chocolate chip cookie.
Star Wars continues with its wacky take on Christmas with Darth Claus. Okaaaay.

Happy Christmas Eve Eve. Only one more shopping day – are you ready??
Today the LEGO Advent Calendars bring us another Christmas tree (Friends), a trike (City), and a somewhat sinister looking hearth (Star Wars). Along with yesterday’s goofy Christmas Tree droid, I like the way the LEGO Star Wars is approaching the advent calendar with a sense of humor and hope tomorrow’s is even better…
Just one more left!
Seriously LEGO Star Wars? A Christmas Tree droid???? Gosh.
City has a more conventional tree, and Friends brings us a gift to put under it.
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…
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?)
