Happy holidays to all of our fellow LEGO builders! As is tradition, we at The Brothers Brick will be opening our advent calendars as we count down to Christmas. We’ll also be sharing commentary on each one, which will be both insightful and hilarious!
This year we have new Harry Potter, Star Wars, City and Friends advent calendars to open. We will be sharing images of the new calendars every day through Christmas. Let’s see what there is to open on Day 6!
Today we opened the namesake of the fourth Harry Potter book, the Goblet of Fire. Also on the table is the TIE Dagger, as seen piloted by Final Order pilots in The Rise of Skywalker.
CJ: Some good parts here for post-holiday building. A step down from the previous giddy days for these calendars, but still a solid effort. I’m also scoring a bonus point for the glitter trans-light-blue flame element.
Bart: How many times can you redesign a goblet of fire?
Adam: Definitely loving the blue flame and the brown bricks. Also, how can there be no love for the TIE Dagger? It’s a literal work of art.
Lino: “So which one of us is the good cop again?”
One thing we can all be grateful for this holiday season is fuel for the family vehicle. Maybe that’s why the Day 6 City build was an Octan gas station, right alongside a friendly elf fuel attendant to fill up your gas tank.
Benjamin: A city isn’t complete without a refueling station, so this goes well with our police station earlier. Maybe we get a hospital and fire station later?
CJ: Few things say “last minute gift purchases” like a can of Pringles from the local gas station. But at least there’s the potential for a tenuous link to gift giving. I wonder, though, if anyone who doesn’t recognize the Octan color scheme would be able to tell you what this was a micro build of. The Friends elf is pretty adorable, and very holiday themed. So high marks there!
Lino: Being a misfit, Alfie didn’t have many career choices.
Bart: That is a nice use of the microdolls or scary toddlers from friends.
Adam: Are we in Oregon? I haven’t had anyone offer to pump my gas since I last traveled through the state in 2019.
While Octan fuel isn’t used in the combined image, perhaps it’s what keeping the flame lit and the TIE fighter in the air.
Benjamin: Oops, sorry for hitting that water main! These TIEs might be better than storm troopers, but not by much…
Lino: I’m not sure how we’d even explain this one to the insurance agencies.
With the holiday sounds of TIE fighters screaming overhead, let’s call it a day. Join us tomorrow as we open yet another window of the 2020 LEGO Advent Calendars!
