On Day 3, we get a go-kart, a Christmas bells ornament, and some kind of Star Wars spacecraft.
The go-kart from the City advent calendar is a pretty straightforward traditional LEGO car design, easy to build. I put our minifig in the go-kart to see how that looked, but I don’t think that’s very safe to be driving standing up. And that is not a helmet he’s wearing!! Kids, don’t try this at home.
The Friends Advent calendar entry for today gives us a lovely little ornament of two golden bells with a sprig of holly. In the group photo I had the vegetation facing the wrong way, sorry, but here it is fixed.
Today’s Star Wars Advent calendarÂ model was a mystery to me, so again we refer toÂ Jayâ€™s Brick BlogÂ where we learn it is a ship called The Arrowhead, from The Freemaker Adventures, which apparently is another Star Wars spin-off cartoon that I’d never heard of. I wish they’d stick to models from the movies, frankly. It’s a somewhat simple build, good use of the jumper plates to attach the slope in the front (and also quite similar to the nose of the go-kart).
(Sorry to post this one a day late – I uploaded the photos to Flickr on the 3rd, but didn’t get around to writing the blog entry until the next day.)
