Oh my goodness, it is a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. No needles, the lights on the top, the scraggly skeleton look. This is perfection, sheer perfection. A shout out to a beloved Christmas special that many of us watch annually as part of our seasonal traditions rendered without a single flaw? Okay, it might be a bare tree decorated with lights that happens to match that, but either way it’s a great festive model.

Here is a rather simple guitar stand, propping up an instrument with brilliantly detailed printing.

The Trade Federation ATT is a memorable vehicle, with a unique design that sits in the memory. This micro version replicates it fairly accurately.   

Each day, we will compare the three builds and pick the best.

Today’s CITY model is unique among advent calendar LEGO builds, at a time when there is a fair bit of repetition from years past, and is extremely well executed – so gets today’s point.
