Official LEGO Advent Calendars – December 16

Every day until December 24, Brick Fanatics takes a look at the gifts in the LEGO CITY, LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Friends Advent Calendars for 2016


With just a few pieces, this shows what is possible with LEGO bricks – a lovely little model that demonstrates icro building at its best.


For a second day, the Friends Advent Calendar contains a table with legs. A wonderfully relevant build, the essence of a present wrapping station is perfectly captured in this model.


While this is technically a somewhat rare protocol droid variant, it is becoming hard to keep track of the various shades of protocol droid released, making each one subsequently less exciting. But it is a nice minifigure.

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


Wrapping presents is an inescapable part of Christmas, and the activity is represented perfectly in the Friends build today.

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.
