Official LEGO Advent Calendars – December 7

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


While a banister is not a model description that gets the blood pumping, it is hard to deny the effectiveness of this model. A bit of snow surrounding a festive holiday wreath, this could easily be part of a porch in a LEGO Winter Village scene. 


Earlier this year, the LEGO Group gave us 41135 Livi’s Pop Star House depicting the glamorous abode of the equally glamorous pop star. Designed with a modern aesthetic, it had an interior fireplace very similar to this one. It’s well executed and with a distinctive style, it is distinctly part of the Friends theme.


Today CITY is festive, Friends is elegant, Star Wars is great fun – it is an actual ‘snow trooper. The designer of this set has shown fans what was happening on Hoth after the battle was over, with a snowball shooting blaster and a variety of parts in rare colours.  

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


Despite each model being excellent today, the choice of winner is Star Wars – the whimsical humour just edges it.

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.
