LEGO 41040: Friends, 60063: City, 75056: Star Wars 2014 Advent Calendar, Day Twelve Review.

December is flying by so fast! We are now at the halfway mark. Only 13 sleeps till Santa comes with the larger LEGO sets! :-D

Are you all prepared? We almost are... but those shops are getting insanely busy now! We need to find possibly 2 more gifts and then we are done.

Any way... lets take a look at what we built today.

This morning Chloe got more finer details to add to her little Dinning/Kitchen area with a pot and... tomato soup? The picture on today's door shows the Red dish pieces (tomato soup) sitting in a plate/bowl, but as you can see from the photo below there are none. You are meant to use yesterday's plates/bowls, but it is kind of confusing at the start because the picture has them grayed out making it look like you are suppose to get 2 more of them. It had me guessing whether or not they were missing and I had to look online to make sure. 7 pieces used.

Whoops.. who spilt the soup on the floor?

A shot with it added in to the whole scheme of things. The little detail of garnish by using the Bright Green Bracelet pieces is a nice touch.

Today's spares.


For me this morning my mini build was a Remote Control Duck, it's based on the classic wooden pull-along duck that was released way back in 1935 by LEGO before the now infamous little plastic brick.
It was a cute little build that reminds me of all the other mini builds like the Trains from the previous years.

My spares.


Today our little man got to build Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder from Episode IV. What a great little model! It's instantly recognisable and to make something so small using only 15 pieces blows my mind! Now that Jaspa has this small version, he is dying to open 75052: Mos Eisley Cantina and play with the larger version.
My tip (going by the previous days, and if the trend continues) is we might be getting the Landspeeder's owner tomorrow. We will wait and see...


Well, that's it for Day 12 of the Advent Calendar reviews. Thank you for dropping by and check in again with us tomorrow to see what little goodies we get to build. :-)

Tan Tile signing out! See you all tomorrow.
