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 10.
At first look, it was impossible to figure out what today’s Star Wars, Harry Potter and Marvel builds were. We’re still unsure what the Harry Potter and Marvel builds are, but for Star Wars, we’re pretty sure it’s the Sand People grappling launcher from Season 2 of The Mandalorian.
The build from City was a micro-hospital. The City sets tend to have several micro-sized buildings included every year, often repeating the previous year’s builds but with different bricks. This one was great, using a 1×1 grey tile commonly found in recent Star Wars sets as the hospital’s cross sign.
The Friends’ set was cute but nearly just as mysterious as the first three builds of the day. Perhaps our esteemed panelists were able to figure out all of these unknown creations.
Bart: Hospital uses big needle to scare people away.
CJ: The “minifigure accessory on a microscale thing” is really starting to remind me of Bill Finger’s giant Batman props.
Chris: Ya, the “minifigure accessory on a microscale thing” doesn’t work so well if you ask me. That Tusken Blaster™ is….well, it wouldn’t be my first choice, but I guess you need something to go pew-pew. The Friends wrapping station and chair are decent.
Ed: I’m really confused about what these things are and I can’t really tell from which of the advent calendars are they from. Thing number 1, looks like a tiny build of a vulture. The middle brown thingy, what is it? Someone help me, please. A piano? And that blue red thingy, Spiderman’s spacecraft thingy or something? I’m lost with these.
Ed, taking another look at the Star Wars build: Okay, looks like the vulture contraption is a weapon of sorts for the Tusken Raider.
It was a weird day, but at least the Tusken Raider got everything he wanted for Christmas!
