Happy solstice! Just 4 days left to Xmas, my how time flies. Today in our Friends and Marvel Advent calendars, we get a cute little locomotive and a table with some festive food and drink. I built a twin-engine propeller plane using the parts I’ve got thus far.
This little train reminds me of the Brio toy trains.
Marvel has a turkey leg and a festive beverage for us on a table.
I built this little plane using the ice skates and roller skates, and using the wheels holder we got to hold the wings together and support the landing gear and serve as engines.
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.)
Only one week left until Christmas? Yikes. In Friends we get the owner of yesterday’s dog treats, and in Marvel we get the owner of yesterday’s cape, Doctor Strange. For an original creation I built a tuk-tuk.
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.
