75184 Star Wars: Snowblower

Do not get me wrong, I love this model. I like it even more than the snowblower form the City Advent Calendar and will absolutely be stealing it for my Winter Village layout. Here is my question – what is it doing in the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar? With all the vastly superior technology available in a galaxy far, far away, haven’t they moved beyond a puny being walking around behind a machine that blows snow? It seems like at a minimum this would be a specialised droid. With that being said, considering how excellent this model is, I am not complaining– just surprised at the designers’ sense of humour.

60155 City: Fire truck

This toy actually feels believable in terms of proportions to a minifigure. I remember having an absolutely giant toy fire truck as a child so there seems to be precedent. The 1×1 black open rounds and the dual bar modified plate are the part highlights of what is otherwise a pretty standard model.

41326 Friends: Mouse house

On the fifteenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me… a third lame pet house. This really is an arch with a few extra bricks, designed to allow a cute critter to sit underneath. It is no doubt neat for pet loving children, getting a whole host of furry LEGO friends with houses.

When I was 3 years old my dad bought home 6659 TV Camera Crew as a gift — he had no idea what he had just unleashed. Three decades and no dark age later, I am still going strong. My love of LEGO led me to a career in Civil Engineering and I am now raising three budding LEGO lovers with my lovely wife who is, bless her, a huge supporter of my brick addiction. When not writing for Brick Fanatics or fulfilling my duties as the U.S. Editor of Blocks Magazine I enjoy collecting, MOCing, exhibiting, as well as running, climbing and home improvement.
