I think multi-day builds are fine when they’re limited to two days. Any more than that and it starts to feel desperate. The tally so far:

  • City: 12/8
  • Harry Potter: 13/7
  • Star Wars: 13/7

Let’s see what’s in store for us today.

City (Nick)

… oh, that’s why. Okay, we’re getting the trailer on another day. You know, I don’t really remember City having a multi-day build before. As a whole day, though, this just feels kind of boring. Yeah, I’m sure it’s building up to something nice, but it still feels like they’re just trying to stretch out the number of days. Thumbs down.

Harry Potter (Eric)

It’s a music stand and a mic. This one’s as filler as filler gets.

Star Wars (Ace)

I think this might be a GONK snowdroid. How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways. 1) The carrot is attached backwards. With the entire palette of elements at LEGO’s disposal, they couldn’t figure out a way to make the carrot attach the other way? It feels lazy to be honest. 2) What’s with the gap under the nose? Is that supposed to be its mouth? I don’t think in the history of snowmen/snowdroids has anyone ever carved out a mouth. This isn’t a Halloween pumpkin. 3) Why are there blue plates in this thing? 3) Some black 1×1 round plates for the eyes would have been the perfect charcoal eyes. 4) Why is the hat so far back? Yeah, a big thumbsdown if you haven’t gotten the drift yet.
