December 1 – Porg
As is often the case with recreating something organic out of LEGO, especially in a small size, this was a tricky build to achieve. It all started with the newish 1×1 curved tile used for the Porg trademark down-turned mouth and grew from there. The eyes were particularly hard to get right; on the side or the front of the head they did not quite work, it was only when the plate with curved bar piece was added that it finally came together.
Now you have the knowledge to build a Porg army!

Brick Fanatics would like our readers to get involved and construct a Star Wars model in microscale – the best build will win a rare LEGO Escape the Space Slug set. All of the details are available here.
