24 Days of LEGO Christmas

Name of Model: 24 Days of LEGO Christmas

Details: It's hard to believe, but another year is slipping away. Every December first, people start counting down the days and getting into advent madness. In the LEGO fan community, the advent calendars are ubiquitous - between the people eager to photograph everything in the official advent calendar kits (sold out already this year) and the diehards who actually build and photograph a new model for each day, there's usually a bit too much advent action (well, if you keep as close an eye on these things as I do, anyway).

While our usual suspects in the original creations categories seem to be off to a slow start, this model has taken things far enough to kick off the season with a bang. This whole building is one giant advent calendar. You can peek ahead by zooming in on the overall photo, but new close-ups of each room are being posted - one room per day, from now through the 24th. Since this one is only revealing detail shots over the next four weeks, we won't be revisiting this advent calendar closer to the 24th - but truth be told, it's already worth a good look. This was part of an even larger project for a few toy store windows, and you can see some behind-the-scenes photos and photos of the other parts of the displays in this photo set. You can see much of this model already, and there are also some bits in LEGO Digital Designer showing the design process for this model and the ski lift scene.
