Today’s build is a Gronk droid snowman.  This is the fourth time we’ve seen a Gronk droid in a advent calendar, and the second time as a seasonal themed droid. It’s brick built and not a mini figure.

Some times you can’t tell what the build is till you put it together. Today item was one of those. Is is a weird AT-ST? Nope it has horns? Why is the front red? Og For December 19 we have Rudolph the red-nosed Taun-Taun.
Creative idea to hold with the seasonal theme.

brick built taun taun with a red nose like Rudolph.

Today’s minibuild is a Porg. Cute little build. We had Santa Porg last year plus a roasted Porg leg with the Chewbacca figure. 

There were 4 extra pieces almost enough to build another one. Just need a wing, body, and head. There’s another wing from the extra pieces from an earlier build. It’s a different color but it’ll work. Now just need a single stud SNOT piece for the body and a head. Head will be that hard part to find. I have to find a printed on on brick link. I may just get a plan color dome piece for the head.

small brick built Porg.

EDIT: Parts list: Here’s a list of what you need to build a porg. Use what colors you want. Everything but the head and body are common spare parts included with many sets. It’s harder to find a SNOT piece with studs on all four sides. Any small dome could work fro the head or just use a round piece like used for the feet.

  1.  Body 1 x 1 with Studs on 4 Sides
  2. Wings (2) Round 1 x 1 Quarter tiles
  3. Front 1 x 1 Half Circle Extended
  4. Feet Round 1 x 1
  5. Head Round 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 2/3 Dome Top

Today’s minibuild is an the Millennium Falcon. They do add this ship to the calendar  often .But looks good.

This was kind of a tricky build. There;s a lot of little pieces and diagram was kind squeezed into one image, I took a pick of the underside if you need a better look, If that.s not enough checkout Boone Builds he has a video for each day,
