Harry Potter Advent Calendar - Day 4

Posted by ,

Christmas forms an important part of the Harry Potter series. The festive theming of this Advent Calendar has proven accordingly impressive so I hope that will continue today.

Find out what emerges next after the break...

Following the arrival of two small Christmas trees yesterday, another emerges today. This design looks more impressive than those released on day three, featuring superior textured detail and lovely colours. The combination of dark green and sand green foliage looks surprisingly effective and white 1x1 slopes form snow-covered branches. The pearl gold decorations are similarly attractive in my opinion.

Another pearl gold star is situated on top, thereby matching the trees from yesterday. Various solutions have been employed for creating the star and I think this rendition is particularly effective. However, the arrival of this Christmas tree, immediately after two smaller versions, feels somewhat repetitive which is unfortunate.

Overall - 4.5 - This festive model includes wonderful detail and captures the familiar shape of Christmas trees beautifully, although I would rather it had emerged slightly later.

Two days of trees in a row? Uhhhhh? These could and should have been spaced out - what are kids going to do with three trees this early in the calendar?

I guess Harry can now go walk in a snowy forest with his toy train...

The tree is beautiful, however, I was surprised it came the day after the other two trees. I was hoping this would come near last.

A third tree? That is certainly a surprise..., and a bit annoying considering trees aren't that fun to get, but hey, at least it looks awesome, compared to lego city christmas trees...

Yeah, it should have been later given yesterday's offering.

Definitely one of the better Christmas tree designs I have seen at this scale.

I like them, but its really annoying that with these designs, you only get one side of the wedges.

Here's hoping for another tree tomorrow!

Still best Advent calendar.

I'm finding these trees are providing my terrified Harry with excellent cover from the malevolent train hunting him. Also this tree is very nice, I like it a lot.

I agree there should have been spacing between the tree builds but the quality of this tree offset that. I like it, I like it a lot! Would have been cool if there were two of these trees too.

Does anyone know if the number locations of Advent calendars are consistent across years and formats? I think they are in the same spots but did not keep boxes from last year to verify.

I find it curious that the harry potter theme has Christmas trees with snow-covered branches, but we've never gotten such a tree in any of the winter village sets that I'm aware of. I like this one!

I get how some might find this repetitive, but we loved it, as the trees go very well together and today's tree was even more wonderfully designed than yesterday's. By far the best calendar ever.

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars continues. This one is tough- both the SW entry and this tree leave something to be desired. Edge goes to HP, simply because the model is is an improvement on yesterday's offering and because it achieved a 4.5/5 today. Score is now:

HP- 3
SW- 1

To be continued...

IIRC Hagrid put up twelve trees in The Great Hall at the beginning of December

Contrary to yesterday's trees I think today's is big enough to look good worked into the Clock Tower set's Winter Ball scene. (Though I topped this one with a small 1x1 white cone to look proportioned in the scene a bit better.)

Omg I can not get this big tree together. Can someone please help !? I been trying to get instructions and no luck. (I know there's instructions on the box but still cant get it.)

There's no redundancy here if you consider Day 3's builds are rockets/missiles, not trees. Consider those missile toes.

Wow, this is so much better than the other trees! I thought people were being a bit harsh yesterday, but now I wonder why'd they even have the smaller ones?

Gravatar
By in United States,

This one did not amuse me at all after two trees yesterday. I dread opening another tree tomorrow.

Thank-you for linking to day 3! Makes it so much easier to go back and compare scores and such! Please do this every day?
