Official LEGO Advent Calendars – December 3

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


The music concept continues for a second day with LEGO CITY. The equipment expands with a speaker and microphone stand, but like yesterday’s guitar the microphone is unprinted – it is completely black. This may have been an intentional cost saving exercise. The speaker looks effective, reminiscent of those from the disco-dancing mini games in the LEGO video games.


It’s another simple build in LEGO Friends today. The mailbox is at ground level, when usually they are up on a stand. It is hard to imagine children or AFOLs being impressed at this five piece ‘build’.


In LEGO Star Wars, this TIE Interceptor is a clever little model. The proportions are a bit off, but managing to pack four articulating wings into a model this small is a feat worth noting. The printed windshield and clear dome element are nice inclusions.


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


Today’s point goes to Star Wars, thanks to the instantly recognisable source material and clever, stylised build.

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.
