Advent 2014 Day 14

Published / by Bill

Today Friends continues the food theme with an assortment of edibles: carrots, turkey legs, glasses of pink champagne, and some sort of pastry with a green topping? City gives us a sled, I guess for yesterday’s robber to get away on. Star Wars continues the Tatooine thread with a moisture vaporator.

Today we get two minifigs – a robber with a flashlight and a knapsack with a jewel, and I presume Anakin Skywalker. For Friends, we continue the kitchen theme with a cabinet with a block of cheese under a glass bell jar and a salt and pepper shaker.

Apologies for getting this one out after midnight again…

Advent 2014 Day 11

Today Friends continues the cooking theme with a range (I think Brits call this a “hob”?), City has a policeman with a bullhorn and sheet music, and Star Wars has a TIE Fighter Pilot.

(Given all the protests and clashes with police in Oakland and Berkeley lately the timing on this one makes me a little uncomfortable…)

Anyway here’s the image:

Today’s Advent Calendar entries are again mostly unrelated to the previous ones. For Friends, we get a strange little thing which I guess is supposed to be a candle on a wreath. The City one (continuing the farmer’s market theme) is a caisson with a baguette instead of a cannon, and oddly it includes an extra wheels holder and the green handle plate. For Star Wars we have a Naboo mini starfighter.

(Sorry for getting this one out a day late; I posted the photo on Google+ on the morning of the 9th but didn’t get the blogpost done until the next day.)

Today’s entries in the LEGO Advent Calendars are three little models. The Friends entry is a red and pink striped table, Star Wars has another artillery gun (this time one that actually shoots).

The City one is a little problematic. You build this little window vignette, and behind the window there is a decoration based on a leaf with some lime cherries and a clear and red jewel. But you can’t actually see what’s behind the window!! I took a best guess, but it shouldn’t be so hard to build a LEGO thing. They should have shown the window added in a separate step or build it backwards:
