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, and hope that you’ll join us! Let’s see what there is to open on Day 15.
Today we continue both of our journeys through Harry Potter and Star Wars advent calendars, with Harry’s date to the Yule Ball and a Lucrehulk-class battleship from The Clone Wars. We added a clear stand to it for the picture, but only the ship is included in the set.
Lino: It wasn’t the Death Star she ordered but it’ll do in a pinch.
CJ: Another great minifigure for the Potter calendar. Yay! The Star Wars micro Trade Federation ship has some interesting and useful parts, so no complaints there. I’m sure that the designers have a hard time deciding which secondary vehicles are recognizable enough to include, and it is nice to see something other than another variation on a TIE fighter.
Adam: Interesting that this is likely a Clone Wars or Revenge of the Sith vehicle, since the blue on this build was only seen on the Lucrehulk after Attack of the Clones, not in The Phantom Menace.
Bart: I am starting to like these bricks for dresses.
Benjamin: Wingardium leviosa!
Chris: I’m not saying I have a better solution for the Trade Federation Droid Control Ship, but this one’s not really doing it for me. It’s too rectangular for a ship that’s a perfect circle. And another big win for Harry Potter with this Padma Patil minifig!
Friends gave us a cheerful elf with a gold brush, perhaps about to paint the ambulance from the City calendar.
Bart: Scary toddlers part two!
Lino: I don’t know what is going on here but I’m pretty sure it’ll be the start of a “Florida Man” story.
CJ: City gets another police-themed micro build, which I guess is par for the course. I don’t know what it is about the general shaping of this year’s cars and trucks, but they just don’t feel very well built to me, particularly when contrasted with the detailing present in the Star Wars and Harry Potter calendars. Still, extra credit for the use of interesting and useful parts in the construction. Friends gives us another elf, an equal mix of creepy and adorable. Holiday point acquired!
According to our esteemed panel of judges, nothing good happens when you combine both figures from today’s builds.
Jasmine: Padma’s first shot at the charm revealed that her Patronus takes on the form of a creepy toddler elf.
Lino: “I suppose I could turn him into a Christmas ham.”
Benjamin: Padma never did like house elves.
We’re just going to quietly walk away from whatever confrontation is about to happen. Tune in tomorrow as we open Day 16 of the 2020 LEGO Advent Calendars.
