2021 LEGO Advent Calendars, Day 1

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!

In 2021, we’re seeing the return of Harry Potter, Star Wars, City and Friends as advent calendar sets. Marvel is being introduced as a newcomer to the regular lineup of advent calendars, and boy was it fun to open those. Check out our daily advent build review below, starting with Day 1.

Exploring the Jungle From a Kayak

LEGO builder Markus Ronge has quite the green thumb! Check out his incredible Jungle Explorer Tree creation. Most LEGO trees I’ve seen go straight up from the ground, but this one curves up convincingly from the rock face. The surrounding vegetation is highly varied and shows the skill Markus has in knowing exactly where each brick should go. Both I and the kayaking minifigure are very impressed.

Orange juice served in a steel cup

LEGO builder Marco Marozzi serves up a tall glass of orange juice, but watch out! It’s probably deadly. Stomping towards you is the Orangehead-III Mech, created for an unknown purpose. Carrying heavy pumpkins? Pulling carrots out of the ground? Squeezing oranges into a slurry pulp? Whatever it does, it looks like it’ll do a killer job at it.

Orangehead-III Mech

Marco’s model is fantastic. From the pistol fingers to the tire shoulders, it’s the use of unorthodox pieces to provide details that really makes this a solid mech. Can you spot other unique parts, such as the car hood (bonnet, for you folks across the Atlantic) used at the base of the torso?

Visiting a Venice-like Vacation

LEGO builder Ayrlego has stunned us with this incredible Venitian-style vintage building and dock.

L'incontro sul Balcone

What’s not to like about this build? The windows caught my eyes first, as their simple design carries so much implied detail. It’s impressive that Ayrlego was able to replicate the window design not once, not twice, but seven times. Harder to spot is the stair railing, which is made up of cheese slopes and eyeglass pieces. So simple, yet the paired brick choice is flawless for how well it works here. I love the pattern of the rounded and square tiles scattered throughout the build as well.

Ayrlego has been featured on The Brother’s Brick several times before. Check out his builds here.

Bugatti blast from the past

Ye olde barn find has struck gold again! LEGO builder 1corn has discovered an automobile that today would be almost 100 years old: the Bugatti Type 41 Packard Prototype.

Originally built in 1926, this vehicle was a combination of a Bugatti chassis Packard bodywork (with a Bugatti aircraft engine), nearly unheard of for its time. 1corn manages to pull off a close replica with his build here. From the whitewall tires to the curve of the fenders, this car has it all. I can’t help but admire the dark red color scheme. It works so well with the black fenders and tan seating.

1corn is known for many builds that look extremely life-like. If you’d like to see more of his creations, check out another right here on The Brothers Brick.
