2021 LEGO Advent Calendars, Day 4

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 we hope will provide insight and hilarity to your holiday season!

This year we have new Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel, 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 4.

Today, we opened an E-web blaster cannon from Star Wars (stormtrooper minifigure from Day 3), a bunch of junk mail for Harry Potter (HP minifigure from Day 2), and a really cool Black Widow minifigure with a pair of stun sticks.

From City, we opened a micro ambulance. But what really shined was the fantastic art set from Friends!

Ed: I’m digging that turret, looks mean and deadly.

Adam: Turrets are cool and all, but HAVE YOU SEEN that painting kit? It’s so simple yet I need it for my Picasso minifigure!

Chris: On Day 2 I complained that Marvel only blast effects. Now Harry Potter only gets a shovel, broom, and letters, which is arguably worse. “Yay mom, today I get a push broom!” said no kid ever.

Bart: Harry sending out thank you notes for all the gifts he got. Why is there a bandage on the back of the ambulance?

CJ: That ambulance design is a puzzler, all right. I like the cannon and painting builds, though. And a Black Widow minifigure is always a nice perk. (Just too bad they didn’t go with her more “wintery” white outfit.)

If you enjoyed today’s build, come back tomorrow for even more LEGO holiday fun! Join us for Day 5 of the 2021 LEGO Advent Calendar builds!

    Maybe the bandage on the ambulance is supposed to represent a puff of exhaust? They’ve done similar things – used common elements in uncommon ways (and occasionally in different colors) – in some of the larger sets.

    One example that comes to mind right off the bat is the fire truck in “BBQ Burn Out”; they use a gray megaphone piece and a transparent light blue flame piece to represent a fire hose nozzle with water jetting out of it.

    (I could be mistaken, of course, but it’s a plausible theory!)

    Obviously the broom, shovel, letters and wreath from the HP set to with day 3’s fireplace. It’s apparent from the box that they are to be combined.
