Advent day 20

Posted by ,

Day 20Day 20The City calendar is on a roll now: this snowmobile is perhaps the best mini-model we've had in the calendar so far. Very simple, but effective, and a great colour scheme!

The TIE fighter is also very simple, but not quite so effective. It would have been nice it was to the same scale as the X-wing Fighter so as to enable some dog-fighting action!

TIE Fighter looks like it could be nicknamed "TILE fighter" with the 2x2 tiles being the wings. Pretty bad scale, so I agree fully.

Is it just me, or does the TIE look fat? :P

I think that snowmobile is actually TP in disguise :P It's defiantly the best model yet (Besides the bank) THe Tie-fighter is another masterpiece mini model.

Snowmobile looks like a children's sled, and the tie fighter is the worst model of the star wars advent calendar imo.

But at least we got a tie fighter pilot out of it.

LEGO could have at least put enough parts to make 3 tie fighters!

@Nightshroud99: I agree - should have been 3 TIE fighters. Definitely the poorest model in the calendar - however, speaking from New Zealand where we're a little bit ahead of some of you I can tell you that today/tomorrow's model more than makes up for it in terms of 'whoosh-ability'!

I don't mind the TIE Fighter, but I do agree that it is a bit...puny, unscaled. I could use LDD and make one much better, but I don't mind the one given at all.

Alemas: Yes, it's an abbreviation for Toilet Paper, TP. And it's 'Itsaturkey', not 'itsaturket' :P
johnnyfinlandia: Really? Are you sure he opened the right one?
