Advent 2018 Day 9

For the 9th day of the LEGO Advent Calendars, we get an ornate lamppost, a rocking reindeer, and General Grievous’s Starfighter.

Our City model today is a lamppost with a sprig of holly on it. I really like that we are now getting the feathers piece in green as it can be used for a lot of vegetation in models – but I’ll need a lot more than this to do much with it, even with a spare part. Other spares include a white 1×1 round with hollow stud (another very useful part), a spare cherry, the black “tap” piece used as decoration on the lamppost, and a spare transparent yellow plate.

Friends continues to deliver adorable Christmas tree ornaments, this time with a rocking reindeer. A clever 1-wide horse-like body is turned into a reindeer with the addition of antlers. We get spares of the 1×1 plates and the white cheese slope.
Friends Advent 2018 Day 9

General Grievous is one of the regular baddies on the Clone Wars animated show, but he also appeared in Episode III. His ship, The Soulless One, is well rendered here in LEGO microscale in the Star Wars Advent calendar. Read more on Jay’s Brick Blog. It comes with five spare parts, all common 1×1 elements.

Here’s the ship turned upside-down so you can see how it’s built.
