If you are looking for an example of excellence paired with mediocrity, look no further. Here we have an excellent turn table – that one must sit on the ground to operate. A couple of 1×2 bricks would have easily solved that! The printed tile has appeared in several sets but is still an awesome piece.

This oven is a bit simple, but does the job. It comes with a cookie and a tub of something.

There is something familiar about this guy. That’s right, we already saw him back on day 4. Today is the day he is supposed to appear in cementing the fact that my copy of the calendar contained a mistake. As mentioned on day 4, LEGO Customer Service will send you a copy of the correct minifigure if this is your second Luke.

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

While we have now had a couple of sets that included this Luke figure, he is still going to take home the title. The minifigure is excellent.

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.
