Early December is an odd time of year here at Brickset Towers. The busy Black Friday period is behind us and we're patiently waiting to lay our hands on next year's sets to review. That means I've had time to build a few MISB sets that have been gathering dust in the corner of my LEGO room this week.
I started with 75230 Porg (I loved the way the organic shape and feathery texture have been captured) and 40306 LEGOLAND Castle (a great little microscale set that's packed with details) before finding 40145 LEGO Brand Retail Store from 2015 lurking near the bottom of the pile.
So, I thought I'd crack open the seals and get it built at last. Having done so I thought I might as well build this year's 40305 LEGO Brand Store as well, then see if there's any merit in writing an article about LEGO sets depicting LEGO stores.
Yesterday's build was a very nice piano, something we've seen in other Friends advent calendars. Music has often been featured in Friends calendars - will we see another music themed build today, and more importantly, will we see more purple pieces?
