Advent day 2
Quite why he's chopping logs though, I'm not sure. Perhaps he's making toilet rolls :-)
Olivia gets a cool sledge to play on today which comes with one of those 1x2 modified tiles that LEGO calls a 'Foot, Plate'.
Their sole purpose is to solve the problem of the mini-dolls not having holes in their backsides to secure them when seated (stop giggling at the back...). The piece wedges between their feet and keeps the doll seated.
In the Star Wars calendar we have our first minifig: a Gungan soldier. Luckily it's a generic one and not our friend Jar Jar. It's the same as that which appeared in 7929 from 2011.
So handy for army builders wanting to recreate the Battle of Naboo.
Marks out of 10 for today's offering:
City -- 5, nice model but light on pieces.
Friends -- 7, nice parts, just right for Olivia to sit on.
Star Wars -- 6, a decent minifig, one you can probably never have too many of.
