The Grinch isn’t the only strange green creature you’ll meet this festive season, Koen Zwanenburg would have us believe that Father Christmas is in fact a Jedi master, Yoda no less! Bizarrely it makes perfect sense — clearly, it would take a high-level Force user to achieve Santa’s intergalactic delivery schedule. There is also a sly nod to the commercial success of the Star Wars franchise: in a clever reversal of roles, Yoda carries a LEGO minifigure Luke on his back, ready to fill someone’s Christmas stocking.
If you like Keon’s model, he’s provided LDD instructions for you to make your very own Santa Yoda.
With the current amount of seasonal LEGO sets, it’s absolutely impossible not to add a LEGO model to your holiday home decorations. And when the trendy BrickHeadz figures meet the holidays, some of the sweetest and most adorable sets are born. LEGO BrickHeadz 40274 Mr. & Mrs. Claus is the fifth seasonal BrickHeadz set, and the only double-pack of the sub-theme. The set consists of 341 pieces, which makes it the third largest LEGO BrickHeadz set so far. This is possible thanks to a ton of decorations that the figures come with, but let’s take a closer look at the designs of Mr. and Mrs. Claus themselves as well…

Ever since LEGO first announced the BrickHeadz line, these super cute blocky models of some of our favorite pop-culture characters have inspired LEGO builders to make their own creations (including TBB’s own Iain Heath’s hilarious Rejectz). So now for your building pleasure is my own tribute to the LEGO BrickHeadz, Santa Claus. I’ve also created instructions for the jolly old fellow, so you can create your own!

Santa is usually found at the front of a sleigh piled high with presents, racing across the sky – not slumped out on a bench with some treats scattered around and a wad of cash in his pocket. DOGOD Brick Design‘s take on jolly old Saint Nick conforms to the latter version of events though.
While we might not be able to give insight into Santa’s mental state in this scene, we can very easily appreciate how thoughtfully designed this build is. From the shaping of the santa figure, to the look of the bench, to the wonderful upscaled light post – there’s a lot to appreciate here.
He made his list. He checked it twice. This morning you found out if you were naught or nice. Last night, Santa Claus came to town.
To celebrate, Chris McVeigh (powerpig) gives us more wonderful works in his fabulous line of sketches.

I know, I know, Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year and I’m not helping matters by posting Christmas creations in November. I’m sorry, but this Santa was too good to pass up. Jeff Cunningham has build an awesome Santa head. At first I thought it was a really nice display piece until I read the description. Come to find out, he can wear the thing and see out the eyes! I’m impressed, Jeff, very impressed.
