Official LEGO Advent Calendars – December 20

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


Brick built presents –while not as detailed as the Friends versions from a few days ago these delightful models are staples of CITY and especially Winter Village sets. They are cute, functional, and immediately recognisable.


The hob and grill adds to the kitchen that has been building. If leaving the chicken directly on there leads to trouble,s the firefighters from the CITY calendar can pay a visit.


I do not understand the LEGO Group’s apparent fascination with this vehicle. I love the scene from Return of the Jedi where Luke leaps from the plank to snatch his lightsaber, but this vehicle doesn’t do much beyond allow him to do so. Despite that we have been gifted with multiple iterations of this craft, and this version is not a highlight.

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


Today the winner is the presents. You can never have too many of these to sprinkle around a LEGO Christmas display.

The scoreboard





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.
