For Day 8, the Advent calendars give us an ice hockey player (City), some snacks (Friends), and a laser cannon (Star Wars). Christmas Build Up gives us a weird creature (mouse?), and I built a fire truck.
The hockey player from City is all set to play:
We get milk, a jelly doughnut, and a carrot for Friends:
The Star Wars model is a laser cannon. Every Star Wars model so far has been either an armed spaceship, a guy with a gun, or a weapon turret like this one. Life Day is going to be a blood bath this year.
And here are all the Advent Calendar models:
For the Christmas Build Up set, this time we get a strange little creature.. at first I thought it was a cat, but the round ears suggest mouse. Given that I recently had a couple of unwanted housemates of the mouse persuasion (which I evicted and relocated to a nearby golf course), I’m not too happy with mice in general.
Here is the backside. The tail isn’t very mouselike.
I used leftover parts this time to build a fire truck.
