I know it’s the wrong time of year for Advent, but I recently swapped a spare copy of the 2017 Christmas Build Up box for the 2016 version (set 40222), with a friend in the London AFOLs. Like last year’s set, this one came in an attractive box showing some of the builds in store.
There was an interesting pile of bits inside, with instructions how to make each of the 24 models.
Of course, some of the parts will be reused, so you can’t build all of them at once. So I decided to take photos of them as I was going along to show you what they looked like.
While not every model was immediately obvious what it was, I enjoyed each little build and have kept one or two intact for use in Micropolis – watch out for them in future!
