Advent 2016 Day 7

The seventh day of the LEGO Advent Calendars is getting a little weird. We get a couple of weird holiday decorations (Friends and City) and an Imperial snowball launching snowman (Star Wars). In the Christmas Build Up we get a nice little airplane and I built a micro scale gingerbread house.

Here is the Friends model, a sort of fireplace I guess?

The City model is certainly a holiday themed decoration, a wreath on some sort of furniture or architectural detail?

Star Wars is getting truly weird. We get a snowman with a droopy red nose and an Imperial helmet with a snowball cannon.

Here are all three Advent models together.

Here’s the Christmas Build Up model, a little airplane (though I think my MOC from the other day was better). I had to take apart the previous day’s model right away to reuse the 1×1 clear plate.

With leftover parts, I built a tiny little gingerbread house.

The roof is carefully balanced on the house, as I couldn’t think of a clever way to attach it using the available parts. There’s a 1×1 brick with a stud on one side holding the two roof parts together, but it just sits on top of the house.

Sorry I am posting this a day late. I’ll try not to repeat that, but it is a risk if I refuse to build them a day early as some bloggers do… anyway I don’t want to ruin your pleasure and surprise if you’re building them each day too before reading the blogs.
