Day #1: Star Wars and City Advent Calendars
Well, I'm gonna' kinda' rip off Chols' blog entries from last year, but with this time double the fun! I've got both the 2012 Star Wars and City lego advent calendars, and I'll be doing mini reviews on each day much as the aforementioned Cholie did for his City calendar.
So, we'll start with the City one.
So we open up the little box labelled "1", and this is what we get in a nice little baggie:
It's a pretty spiffy little fire man with what I assume is a megaphone and a hat (of which it comes with two of each). Nothing too special about this guy but he's a nice colour at least. I had a close up of the dude but my camera's being dumb and it's nowhere to be found. Sorry 'bout that. I'll get another pic of him and show you tomorrow. Here's one of the whole thing, though:
So, now for the Star Wars one.
Again, we open up the little number one box, and also in a nice little bag we find a cool assortment of blue, grey, and a tad bit of yellow pieces. What could this be?
And here's a close-up which did not get lost of (you probably guessed it) the Gungan Sub:
It's a nice little model that takes about 5 seconds to build with the back of the "door" to the box having 2-stp instructions. It's cool but I feel they could have done the "tail a little better. Otherwise though it's a fun little thing and decently accurate for such a small scale.
See you tomorrow.
