Yesterday's ornament was excellent - best of the calendar so far - and we're starting to get a good assortment of ornaments. What will we find for our fifth day of December - will it continue the holiday spirit, or take us in another direction?
Last year, there was a fascinating article published here on Brickset about the seemingly eternal search for a well built snowman. There have been many attempts, especially in advent calendars, but none seems to have quite been an accurate representation.
Today's gift is that advent calendar staple, the snowman. I'm not sure why he has what appears to be a bullseye on his body, represented by a 2x2 medium azur round jumper and a red flower. I like the white parabolic reflector used for the feet.
I do rather like the warm gold conical horn used for the nose and the use of the T-beam with the 1x2 plate doubling as the hat/hanger. I'll also note that purple is used again in this build - both in medium lilac and bright reddish violet. The purple theme continues.
As it appears the search for the well built snowman will, as well.
