Here we are at the end of the first twelve days of December and I’m in an increasingly festive mood, so this was a welcome suprise to find waiting for me in the forums this morning. You may now be aware of the existence of Lego-Maniac, who is one of many great builders with a soft spot for Batman. Don’t worry, he’s a Star Wars fan too and the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Apparently not content with the official Star Wars Advent Calendar, his 7 year old son decided to make his own. Yeah you heard me right, I’m blogging the creation of a 7 year old. I don’t know if this has ever been done before on this site and I certainly didn’t think I would be the one to do it, but there it is. Each little ship has a cartoon stylized, almost chibi look to them and I have to admit I’m genuinely impressed by young Mini Lego-Maniac. This is a great lesson for those who complained about the SW calendar we got. If you don’t like it, build your own.

Well played kid.
