Official LEGO Advent Calendars – December 18

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


This rather irreverent entry sees a fully suited geo-explorer baking a cookie.


The LEGO Group figured out the formula for excellent minifigure scale Christmas trees several advent calendars ago, so it is no surprise that this model is spot on. The light blue base makes for a great colour combination.


Major credit to the designer who rendered a recognizable and accurately scaled model of Jabba’s Palace in just 12 pieces.

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


So that is what you are supposed to do with the palace – use it as a step stool. The Christmas tree is the best model of the day – Friends has definitely taken a turn for the better.

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.
