Advent 2019 Day 22

Getting down to the wire now! Day 22 of the LEGO Advent Calendars gives us another fireplace, a left-handed sewing machine, some wrapped presents, and a Cloud Car pilot.

Advent 2019 Day 22

If you don’t have your Advent calendars yet, ordering them on Amazon could help support this blog. Here are the links: City, Friends, Harry Potter, and Star Wars.

This is a nice little fireplace, with the use of transparent orange tooth plates instead of the usual LEGO flame elements. But I don’t like that the flame is not under the chimney!

Advent 2019 Day 22 City

For Friends we get a sewing machine…. but it’s backwards! If it was for left-handed sewists it would be this way, but normally the needle should be on the left. Didn’t they do any research? At least, this is how the picture on the instructions had it…

Advent 2019 Day 22 Friends Front

OK, if you turn it around, it makes more sense. I think the model designer meant it to be facing this way, but whoever made the diagram to build it had it built backwards just so you can see how all the parts go. I think this is also why the Star Wars model of the MTT from Day 16 was backwards when I built it.

Harry Potter is pretty straight-up Christmas today, with some basic wrapped gifts for under the tree.

Advent 2019 Day 22 HP

The Cloud Car from yesterday gets a driver – though you’d have a hard time fitting him inside that micro model!

Here you can see the face better, with the helmet removed.

Advent 2019 Day 22 SW Face

There’s an alternate face and printing on the back of the torso, so here’s a rear view.
