The end has come at last to our Advent journey. Day 24 brings us our final two models in the Friends and Marvel calendars, respectively a wheelie weiener dog and a Christmas tree. I used the parts from this tree and many earlier days’ parts to build an original model, a much bigger tree.
Our doggie has a set of functioning wheels attached to his body using a harness that’s part of the body mold, lifting his hind legs off the ground. There’s also a little green antler piece, or perhaps it is a pair of tree boughs. Either way, it’s very festive.
Marvel gives us a tree, but it is not nearly as nice as the one Friends gave us earlier, and frankly a bit anticlimactic.
So I built it bigger, using parts from both trees and some parts from other sets in this year’s Advent calendars. Hope you like it.
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.)
Thanks for following along on this year’s Advent Calendar models. I am hoping that in the coming year you will continue to stick with me as I have a lot of hopes and plans for new content on my blog and YouTube channel. I have a new studio for building LEGO and plan to spend a lot more of my time and energy on it than I have for the past couple of years, where my LEGO collection was in the living room and was constantly getting buried by my clutter… having a dedicated space where I have room to have everything in in one place should be a huge boost to the LEGO hobby.
