Advent 2023 Day 17


Day 17 is PARTS. Friends gives us dog foot and related items, and a slew of bonus parts. Marvel gives us a cape. Just the cape, not even in a little plastic bag! So I put the cape on the dog and a sausage into the hole in his head, and the results are the newest Marvel hero: Super Sausage Dog Unicorn Guy. Enjoy.

Friends feeds our canine companions with a food and water bowl combo, water dispenser (not a bong, I’m quite sure), a carrot, lettuce leaf, sausage, bully stick (remember I told YouTube the video was “not for kids”), and a bone. Plus as many spare parts as there are models, 8 of each if you can’t bother counting.

Marvel is just one part. Not even in a bag. It’s a new kind of cape that is molded in rubber and snaps on to a minifigure’s neck.

Or, it seems, a dog’s neck. Meet Super Sausage Dog Unicorn Guy. Sorry, I was too tired to build a whole thing and this is what came to mind when I saw the parts. See featured image.

This year I purchased and am building just two of the available five calendars LEGO has released: Friends and Marvel. If you want to build the others, here are some links to them on Amazon: City, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. (But please don’t support Harry Potter, due to the transphobic politics of J. K. Rowling.)
