The 16th day of the LEGO Advent Calendars is a bit underwhelming. Friends continues the kitchen theme with some baked goods (I think); City gets what appears to be a police snowmobile, and Star Wars has a snowspeeder pilot to go with yesterday’s micro build.
For the 15th day of the LEGO Advent Calendars we get a dog with a bone in a bowl for City, the Friends kitchen continues with a sink, and Star Wars has a micro scale snow speeder.
(Sorry again for the late posting folks!)
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…
On the 12th day of the LEGO Advent Calendars we get three cute little models: for Star Wars, the land speeder from Tattooine; for City, a little radio controlled duckie; and for Friends, some food – this goes with the previous day’s oven and requires two of the dishes from earlier as well.
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 again there’s no real connection to previous themes. Friends gives us a set of dishes and silverware, City has a snowball launcher, and Star Wars has a micro TIE Fighter.
We’re into the double digits now! Only 15 more shopping days until Xmas… are you ready?
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 we get minifigs in City and Star Wars, and two little chairs/stools in Friends.
I’d pose the two figures sitting on the two stools, but the ice skater figure has stubby legs that won’t bend, so all she can do is stand on a stool.
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:
