Here we are on day 2 of our advent calendar countdown!!!
Let’s see what we got today…
LEGO City – Winter Duke Detain
I know nothing about the LEGO City Adventures TV show. It appears to be a Nickelodeon show, and the first season, at least, appears to be available on Netflix.
I do know that my nephew watches it and finds it to be great fun, so that sounds like they’re hitting their intended target. Regardless, while this character might not mean a great deal to me, I can say that his blue holiday sweater is adorable, and his LEGO facial expressions in the classic LEGO yellow means he can be swapped out with my variety of other minifigures.
I’m not 100% sure why he has a wrench as an accessory, but I have no issues with it. I just assume it fits his character in the show… perhaps he’s a mechanic and a police officer?
LEGO Star Wars – Holiday Special Poe Dameron
I don’t have many LEGO minifigures outside of the standard 3-in-1 or Expert series builds. As a result, the skin tone minifigures are rare in our home. We have plenty of LEGO Friends mini-dolls that provide a wide diversity of tones, but when it comes to the original minifigures, I’ve always just had the classic yellow.
Today’s Star Wars build is Poe Dameron, but he’s sporting the holiday sweater he was wearing in this year’s LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special from Disney+. The double-sided faces are nice, and I assume a grumpy Poe might have the blaster, while the calmer Poe takes a sip of hot chocolate, but hey, you never know.
Ultimately, I just love the BB-8 sweater.
LEGO Harry Potter – Hogwarts Micro-build
Today’s Harry Potter set is a Micro-build. Following in the footsteps of the other calendars so far, today’s pieces came together to create the massive LEGO set 71043 – Hogwarts Castle.
It only sports 15 pieces, making it the smallest micro-build so far, but it still got the point across well enough.
LEGO Friends – Christmas List
I don’t know how I feel about this…
It’s cute. A table, cookie, and what I suspect is meant to be a Christmas wish list or shopping list?
In comparison to today’s other objects, like Poe’s blaster or Duke’s wrench, it’s not exactly thrilling. Our daughter out it together easily enough, though she did find it frustrating that the pen had nowhere to go, just sitting there instead. Technically, I agree. I like all my LEGO bits to clip or click somehow, only disconnecting during playtime.
Still, pajama Emma can now doodle some at her table and have a nice snack!
