Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 19

Capping off the weekend with Day 19, HP has a three-point buffer going into the battle today. Can they extend their lead or will MCU come within striking distance? Let’s find out:

Day 19- MCU

Steve: Day 19 in the MCU – it’s the final run to 24!

Door 19 is a microbuild for Avengers Tower. This is the best micro-scale build so far in this calendar. Great use of just a few pieces to evoke the building from the films, including a printed element (but alas it’s not a new/unique print).

My only complaint is that the build only has one “good side”, with the back having visible anti-studs.

Overall, solid design.

Day 19- SW

Patrick: Day 19 of the Star Wars advent gives us another great micro model, this time of Boba Fett’s Firespray-31 Starship, the Slave 1. Boba’s Slave 1 was received in both 2011 and 2016 advents, though this seems to be the cleanest version with the crispest colours. The green and brown really pops, whereas most previous Slave 1s used dark red and grey, and therefore weren’t as flashy. The shaping is really accurate to the in universe ship, I think due to the use of the newer 1/4 tiles in green to round the studded edges. Overall, I’m really happy with this model, though without some prints it might have a hard time vs HP and MCU…

Day 19- HP

Matt: I’m continually impressed by the mid calendar offerings from HP, despite a few hiccups here and there. As such, they’ve forged ahead to a 3 point lead deep into the season. The question will become, do they have enough to hang on?

Day 19 gives us a Platform 9.75 archway. This is actually an impressive build for a single entry, owing to its SNOT (Studs Not on Top) design technique, not always seen in HP calendars. The build itself is not quite what I’d call “minifigure scale”, but nor is it micro, so that gives it a mid-scale designation, which is about all you’d expect out of an AC entry.

The main event though is clearly the PRINTED 2×4 Hogwarts Express/Platform 9 ¾ tile, exclusive to this calendar. With its Hogwarts crest, dark red, and gold accents, it’s another great get this season. HP continues its amazing trend of offering printed tiles in their calendars, whereas expensive, hard to find retail sets are still getting sticker sheets. That’s been a huge advantage for HP throughout the season, and I suspect it’s more than enough to get them the W here again today. Also, the complete Platform 9.75/Hogwarts Express scene is definitely poly-bag worthy (pictured below).

Verdict

HP continues to shine with a mid-scale build and printed exclusive tile on Day 19, capturing another 2 points for the calendar. The battle of the microbuilds was close, but the edge goes to MCU once again, with its microscale Avengers Tower, complete with its own printed tile. SW brings up the rear yet again, a disappointing trend for that calendar this season. HP has opened another impressive gap, and the scores are now:

HP- 23

MCU- 19

SW- 15

To be continued…

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 18

It’s Saturday and we’re officially one week out from the big day, and beginning the final stretch of the Advent Calendar Battle. All calendars still have a shot at winning the season! Find out how the points got distributed today:

Day 18- MCU

Steve: Day 18 looks good with a surprise figure from the MCU – it’s SHEILD Director Nick Fury!

This is a unique* figure for Fury (but only because of his winter hat). The printing is crisp and clean, and my only confusion is about his accessories – not sure what the remote control he has is supposed to be operating.

It’s always great to get a figure that we don’t see on the box, and Fury is a good one.

No description available.

Day 18- SW

Patrick: Rounding the final week of the advent calendar, I’m expecting some big things from Star Wars. Thankfully the week is off to a great start with our first Star Wars minifigure* unique to this set, the Imperial Interrogator Droid seen used on Grogu aboard the Light Cruiser received yesterday. Minifigure gets an asterisk here because realistically its not a “figure” per se, but it is a new design used for this in-universe robot, and is effective enough. Similar designs have been seen in both UCS Death Star iterations, but its cool to get one in a set not $499+. A spare grey syringe was also included, which is a bonus. Overall, this is a solid addition to the whole advent, as well as my Star Wars minifigure collection!

No description available.

Day 18- HP

Matt: This season’s HP calendar has surpassed my expectations, at least up to now. If HP calendars from previous years are any indication, HP has a tendency to finish poorly. But so far so good.

Behind Door 18 is one of our main characters and everyone’s favorite Weasley, Ron! This iteration of the figure is unique and exclusive to this advent calendar, owing to his “not yet sorted” wizarding robe torso. We’re still playing out the Hogwarts Express scene here on the way to school. A dual sided head is included for Ron. In addition, we get a wand, chocolate frog, and collectible wizarding card tile. Today, I got Albus Dumbledore again, however, this version is different than the previous entry, with gold borders and accents! I certainly won’t complain about getting two unique tile versions of Dumbledore in the same calendar. Also, I randomly got an extra brown wand sprue today, so that’s a total of 4 wands for ol Ron. He does eventually break his wand so at least he will have some backup now. In an age where calendars have a tendency to separate fig from accessory, I’m happy HP has avoided this strategy for the most part.

All in all, a really strong figure entry here today for HP, and a solid Saturday gift.

No description available.

Verdict

Today was technically the first “fig vs fig vs fig” battle we’ve seen this season, but that comes with an asterisk as SW’s entry isn’t a standard minifig. Therefore, the battle for the full two points came down to Nick Fury vs Ron. In the end, the advantage was given to Ron by the slightest of margins, considering that his torso is unique here while Nick Fury can be found in other sets (albeit, without his hat). Therefore, MCU grabs 2nd place while the SW “fig” gets 3rd.

The scores are now:

HP- 21

MCU- 18

SW- 15

To be continued…

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 17

We’ve arrived at the weekend once again, and the race is still hotly contested between HP and MCU. If SW wants to stay in the hunt, they’ll need a strong showing today. Let’s see how it all unfolds on Day 17 as we usher in the weekend:

Day 17- MCU

Steve: Day 17 for the MCU sees a return of the microbuild with a micro-scale Quin-Jet.

Having been a long-time collector of the Star Wars Advent calendar, I appreciate a well-designed micro-scale build. I feel that the designers on the Marvel Advent Calendar are not quite up to the same level as the Star Wars designers.

This build has some odd gaps and questionable choices for the design of the entire rear section. It’s identifiable but that’s about all it has going for it. Compare and contrast the EXCELLENT micro-build that Star Wars provides today.

No description available.

Day 17- SW

Patrick: Sticking with the Imperial faction again, day 17 of the Star Wars advent gives us possibly the best micro from the calendar thus far, Moff Gideon’s Light Cruiser! This vehicle design has existed in Star Wars for a number of years, but this is its first time ever interpreted in micro. The angles achieved with slopes are really nice towards the front and back sections, and the bridge uses an interesting design I would previously have thought was an illegal technique. Its cool, innovative micros like this that makes including them in advents worth it!

No description available.

Day 18- HP

Matt: After HP’s win yesterday, they’ve changed the narrative a bit in the mid-calendar season, and I’m pleasantly surprised so far. Let’s see they can do on Day 17.

Behind the door is a trolley for carrying school gear to the Hogwarts Express, via platform 9.75. Sadly, there isn’t much of a festive or on-theme element today, as this trolley could slot in for a City advent calendar or retail set for that matter. The build is straight forward. Curiously, there were two 1×4 dark grey plates used for the bed of the trolley, in place of a single 2×4 dark grey plate. Not often will you see this sort of part usage in an official set, especially when a 2×4 would be more efficient/structurally sound. This is more of a note for the LEGO geeks among us, but certainly weird imho.

I guess the redeeming features of today’s build would be the functioning aspect (it does roll, after all) and the scale aspect. I’m only considering this now, but you could reuse the Diagon Alley wall from Day #9 as the entrance to platform 9.75, and run through it with the trolley. Might be fun for a laugh! In any event, we now have a cart to load up with previous days’ offerings, such as the wand box, book, etc. Overall, I’d probably say this falls more on the disappointing side than anything.

No description available.

Verdict

With its accuracy and unique build design, SW takes a much needed two points today with its microscale Light Cruiser. In 2nd place, HP salvages a single point due to the function/scale of today’s offering, if lacking in the festive/theme categories. 3rd place belongs to MCU, with its identifiable, microscale Quinjet.

After the dust has settled on this Friday, all calendars are still in the thick of things, and the scores are now:

HP- 19

MCU- 17

SW- 15

To be continued…

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 16

MCU/HP are tied with SW looking to catch up. Let’s see what shakes out on Day 16:

Day 16- MCU

Steve: Day 16 – What is behind the door to finish the first 2/3rds of the MCU calendar?

For day 16 we have an Iron Man Snowman. While technically Bricklink defines this as a minifig, I think that is stretching the definition a LOT.

It’s an OK build, I like the inclusion of the un-printed all-white Iron Man helmet, and the Space Ray Guns as arms are neat. I always like the winter and festive-themed builds more, so this one is all right. Not great, not awful – but all right.

No description available.

Day 16- SW

Patrick: Continuing with the Navarro Speeder concept, Day 16 of the Star Wars advent calendar provides a nice little model of the speeder Mando jumps into the back of towards the end of Chapter 3 when he’s having the shootout against Greef Carga and the bounty hunters guild, before the rest of the Mandalorian Covert shows up to rescue him. The flatbed-like pan is well replicated and can fit a figure lid down to replicate the shootout scene. Also, the fixed astromech speeder pilot is pretty effectively replicated with some modified 1×1 plates and another one of those nice BB-9E dome pieces. Overall this is another great speeder build, but has some tough competition within the final 10 days of the calendar.

No description available.

Day 16- HP

Matt: After a somewhat lackluster entry yesterday, I really don’t know what to expect out of HP today.

Behind Door #16 is another “accessory pack” if you will, albeit much more robust. Today, we get four items- Hedwig the Owl, a chocolate frog, a chocolate frog collectible wizard card, and an exclusive 1x printed Hogwarts Express train ticket! The latter item is definitely the star of the show, as this hasn’t been seen before. With gold and silver accents, the ticket has some great synergy with other HP retail sets. We are clearly boarding the Hogwarts Express now in the chronology as well as the game board.

In addition to the ticket, this is my first collectible wizarding card printed 2×2 tile. Steve pointed out that the tile you receive today is actually random, and not consistent across all advent calendars. I think this is pretty unique, adding another element of surprise to the calendar. Fittingly, by some stroke of luck, I received an Albus Dumbledore card, which is the same one Harry receives on the train with Ron! Getting Hedwig and a chocolate frog is a bonus today to round off the offering.

Overall, while accessory packs can be hard to judge within the context of an advent calendar battle, today’s entry certainly passes the eye test and is a solid gift for HP lovers.

No description available.

Verdict

With its exclusive/unique printed 1×2 ticket plus chocolate frog card tile, HP takes the two points today, with about as good an accessory pack offering as you can hope for in a calendar. The battle for 2nd place was more contested. In the end, we felt as though MCU offered a festive build, and the white iron man helmet helped that. Also, it is worth noting that Bricklink considers today’s MCU offering a “figure” and has been given that status. While we don’t necessarily all agree with that distinction, it helped serve as a tiebreaker today. Therefore, SW finishes in 3rd place with an obscure but interesting deep cut from The Mandalorian.

With today’s results, the score is now:

HP- 18

MCU- 17

SW- 13

To be continued…

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 15

With the race divided and separated by two points each, we take a peak at what’s behind the doors today:

Day 15- MCU

Steve: Day 15 in the MCU – what has the multiverse brought us? We have Captain Marvel!

This is a solid figure, with clear printing (including printed legs). The print aligns well across the torso and hips, and includes metallic details for extra “punch.” Finally, we also have an action feature with the squeeze-and-shoot snowballs as accessories. Not unique, but a good find.

No description available.

Day 15- SW

Patrick: Day 15 of the Star Wars advent is sticking with the popular Imperial theme, with this small but effective speeder bike for Day 13’s Scout Trooper. Similar to the 4+ Snowspeeder’s Hoth Imperial speeder bike, this cool little model, coupled with the Scout, is likely depicting the scene where Grogu was taken by Scout Troopers and roughed up before being saved by IG-11 in the season 1 finale. Overall, this is probably one of the better speeders we’ve received from advent calendars, and a welcome addition to my Imperial collection.

No description available.

Day 15- HP

Matt: After a couple debatable entries over the last two days, HP is looking for a home run today.

Unfortunately, they don’t get that on Day 15. Behind the door is another accessory offering- a book with parchment, a wand case, and Harry’s wand(s). While this entry reminds me of Day 4’s accessory pack, it’s definitely better, containing rarer and more coveted elements. The wand case in particular is definitely on the newer/rarer side. I know they were present in the massive Diagon Alley set, but unsure as to whether they’re made their way into smaller, more affordable retail sets. In any event, today’s items are a welcome addition for HP fans, but they likely won’t be enough to score a point today in the battle- which is a disappointing outcome.

No description available.

Verdict

MCU grabs another 1st place win this season, with its Captain Marvel figure. IN 2nd place, SW gets a mid-scale speeder build. In 3rd place, HP gets a nice accessaroy pack but not enough to score points on Day 15.

With that, MCU catches right back up to even the lead with HP, and the scores are now:

HP- 16

MCU- 16

SW- 13

To be continued…

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 14

The race remains close entering Day 14, as both MCU/SW are tied for 2nd place, on the heels of HP. Let’s see how it all pans out today:

Day 14- MCU

Steve: Day 14 for MCU brings us a build of one of Tony Stark’s shop robots, DUM-E. It’s a simple build but does a good job of evoking the robot from the Iron Man films in just a few parts. For a festive touch, he’s carrying a stocking for decorating.

No description available.

Day 14- SW

Patrick: Behind door #14 of the Star Wars advent calendar is a pretty run of the mill weapon rack. Its built up with a few grey bricks and slopes, but its unimpressive and not worth deciphering its location from the Mandalorian. It comes with a standard blaster and a blaster pistol, presumably arming the Scout Trooper received yesterday. Alternatively, the pistol could be for the Scout and the blaster for the Stormtrooper from Day 3.

Interestingly, both “weapon racks” so far have contained two free studs and directly coincide with a previous day’s figure, so these racks may also function as minifigure stands for their respective figures, increasing their desirability in my opinion. This build needs pros, because unfortunately its another weak Imperial-based build that likely won’t survive the bulk bin long.

No description available.
No description available.

Day 14- HP

Matt: After a tough loss yesterday, HP is trying to get back on (trolley) track today.

Behind Door #14 is Harry’s vault full of Galleons at Gringotts. This is another “two-part” build where LEGO has spread the completed model over two days rather than one, similar to days 3 and 4. Bummer.

The build itself is mainly a collection of pearl gold parts representing Harry’s vast wealth left behind to him by his late parents. The best pieces here are the 1×2 ingots (2) and the 1×2 “jumper” plates (2). The rest of the 1×1 round studs complete the treasure trove. The tan brick actually does connect to Day 13’s vault door (pictured below) so at least there’s an element of connectivity there.

I know the books/films place emphasis on the fact that Harry has considerably more wealth than most wizarding families (especially the Weasley’s), but today’s entry could have been improved by adding some Sickles (in flat or metallic silver) and Knuts (in the now-retired copper/bronze anyone? *sigh*) to the trove. In any event, this vault interior looks much better as a completed build than on its own.

No description available.
No description available.

Verdict

With both its festive and functional elements, the MCU entry takes a solid two points over the competition today. In the “battle of the two-parters”, both SW and HP calendars break up completed builds over a two day period, a disappointing trend for both calendars over the years. In the end, HP grabs 2nd place as the gold pieces are more rare (ish) than the blasters/grey elements found on SW’s sad weapons rack- adding some value to the bulk bin. Both calendars look to move on from an ugly day while MCU shines, and the scores are now:

HP- 16

MCU- 14

SW- 12

To be continued…

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 13

After a strong weekend for HP, a new week begins and all calendars are still in the hunt. Let’s see the opening gifts for Monday:

Day 13- MCU

Steve: Opening the second half for the MCU, on say 13 we get a present and a stocking!

The colour scheme for the present says “Captain Marvel” – maybe a hint of a figure to come? The stocking is big and green and definitely belongs to The Hulk.

We’ve seen presents before in calendar builds, and they are often a bland day – I think the injection of humour with the massively oversized Hulk stocking (it even has a crane attachment point…). takes it up a notch.

No description available.

Day 13- SW

Patrick: Day 13 of the Star Wars advent contains, in my opinion, the first (and hopefully not last) great minifigure of the calendar, the Imperial Scout Trooper! While not unique, this is only the third time we’ve received this newest version of the Scout Trooper, which has great torso and leg printing, and a brand new helmet mold! Outside of the Razor Crest and the unpopular Action Battle Endor set from 2019, this is the only set containing the Imperial Scout with this new armour, and it’s an awesome inclusion!

No description available.

Day 13- HP

Matt: After back-to-back strong entries over the weekend, HP has opened a surprising although welcome mid-calendar lead. I;m really enjoying the chronological progression to Hogwarts, so let’s keep it going!

Behind the door on Day 13 is the entrance to Harry’s vault at Gringotts. The build is mid-scale, with an opening/functioning round door, like the vault depicted in the movie. I like the quarter round tiles and how they have been implemented here. With a bit of imagination, the modified 2×3 brown plate with hole provides a keyhole for the key previous provided on Day 11. Placing today’s build on the gameboard puts it near the mine cart and the tracks. The board tells us to place day’s “13+14” on the same spot- perhaps providing a clue for tomorrow’s gift. All in all, I like the vault door and certainly not the worst entry we’ve seen this year, albeit not quite up to HP’s “lofty weekend” standards.

No description available.
No description available.

Verdict

With its Scout Trooper minifig, SW takes an easy two points today. 2nd/3rd place was a more controversial discussion. Ultimately, the majority felt as though the festive nature of MCU’s offering trumped HP’s functional vault door. Therefore, it’s MCU taking 2nd place, and HP left on the outside looking in (to the vault) in 3rd.

With the win, SW catches up to MCU, and the scores are now:

HP- 15

MCU- 12

SW- 12

To be continued…

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 12

Entering Day 12, HP has a two-point lead over MCU, and a four point buffer on SW. Will that lead expand today, or will the other calendars close the gap? Read on as we wrap up the weekend:

Day 12- MCU

Steve: Day 12 for the MCU – the first micro-build from this calendar, it’s the SHEILD Heli-carrier.

This is really just an “OK” representation of the in-universe vehicle. I feel the build doesn’t quite nail the shape of the angled upper flight deck. Colours are OK, but overall – I was happier when the MCU was avoiding micro-scale builds.

No description available.

Day 12- SW

Patrick: Day 12 of the Star Wars advent calendar provides a vehicle to fight opposite yesterday’s Rebel X-Wing; an Imperial TIE Fighter! This is a bit less common of a design to see in advent calendars, but effective and welcomed nonetheless. TIE advent builds have come a long way since two 2×2 plate wings and a centre travis brick!

No description available.

Day 12- HP

Matt: After a big minifig battle win yesterday for Griphook, HP looks to keep the momentum going.

Day 12 reveals a Gringotts mine cart. Now that Harry has his vault key, we are entering the Gringotts vault courtesy this cart, just as in the film. I like that it has seating for 2, and functions with the 4 attached wheels. The headlights are nice, especially the front with the gold clip, as they are also present in the film, albeit for a quick scene. I think I will keep this build for my dwarves mining scene I currently have on display.

The HP calendar has held fast to its chronological order so far, and this mine cart has a dedicated position on the developing game board. Overall another solid, film-relevant, functional, and to-scale build offered up today by HP.

No description available.

Verdict

With its function and to-scale design, HP takes another big two points today to extend its lead. In the battle of the microbuilds, SW comes out on top owing to an efficient redesign of a microscale TIE. In 3rd place, the Helicarrier- immediately recognizable but perhaps some odd color choices for today.

With that, HP has surprisingly opened up a mid-calendar lead with SW trailing MCU by a single point. The scores are now:

HP- 15

MCU- 11

SW- 10

To be continued..

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 11

Heading into the weekend, we’re in a familiar place, with all advent calendars still in the race. Let’s see what Saturday brings us on Day 11:

Day 11- MCU

Steve: Day 11 in the Marvel Universe brings back a Minifig!

We have Thanos here in figure form (#ThanosWasRight), but it looks like he got coal for Christmas.

He has a sack (no doubt for stealing half of Christmas) and comes with a minifig scale Infinity Gauntlet. Torso print is crisp with metallic printing.

I’ve always felt the big-fig version of Thanos was too big so I’m glad to see him in this scale. He’s technically unique to the calendar, but a glance at Bricklink says that’s only because this print comes in a set with his helmet.

Good fig, glad to see the villains represented for the MCU.

No description available.

Day 11- SW

Patrick: Day number 11 for the Star Wars advent shows a departure from Tatooine, in an X-Wing! This great little micro design is almost a staple of Star Wars advent calendars, with some variant on it appearing in almost half the calendars released. I guess this is Luke’s X-Wing from the final episode of the series, meaning hopefully there’s more Gideon’s cruiser or season finale builds coming. Its a cool one to get duplicates of, to flesh out the micro rebel fleet, but it still might have some tough competition against HP and MCU today.

No description available.

Day 11- HP

Matt: After a couple low points across all calendars, we’re all looking for something exciting on Day 11. It appears we’ve gotten our wish- the first head-to-head minifig battle of the 2021 season!

Behind Door #11 is Griphook the Gringotts goblin. This was somewhat expected based on yesterday’s service counter with built in stool, but you love to see a figure pop out on any day.

Griphook is the goblin that escorts Harry and Hagrid to Harry’s vault in Gringotts during the first film. He would go on to play a larger role down the road in the series. This iteration of Griphook is unique owing to his dual-sided face with sneering smile. The only other variant of this figure is found in Series 2 of the HP Collectable Minifigures “blind bags”, making this figure fantastic value in this advent calendar. His torso only appears twice before as well. The dual molded head piece with hair is fantastic, and it could totally be used on a custom elf elder in the MOCing world. He is holding Harry’s key to his vault here, and we get an extra one on the sprue. Overall, gifts like this are great for any advent calendar, giving the builder an opportunity to collect exclusive or hard to find figs.

No description available.
No description available.

Verdict

Our first head-to-head minifig battle of the season pits MCU vs HP. In discussing our verdict, we consider the figure’s exclusivity (unique) as well as rarity in our ratings metrics. Thanos, while technically unique owing to the lack of helmet, appears in more sets (10) than Griphook (2). Further, Griphook is a exclusive figure thanks to his dual-sided head. While we all agree Thanos is a larger figure in each respective universe, it is Griphook that takes the two points today, as he is much more exclusive/unique/rare across the LEGO universe. 2nd place of course goes to Thanos and MCU, while SW takes a 3rd place with its X-Wing microbuild.

We hope today’s minifig matchup is the first of many more to come this season. With today’s results, the score is now:

HP- 13

MCU- 11

SW- 9

To be continued…

Battle of the Licensed Advent Calendars- Day 10

MCU/HP have again opened a gap on SW. Can the latter win another important two points to stay in the hunt? Read on:

Day 10- MCU

Steve: Marvel Day 10: Another day, another minifigure scale build.

I actually had to look this one up, I wasn’t 100% sure what it was – the is an E.D.I.T.H. drone from “Spider-Man: Far from Home.”

The bright blue and red colour scheme means its not screen-accurate (the drones are white in the movie). No unique parts or particularly interesting techniques put this solidly in the “meh” column.

No description available.

Day 10- SW

Patrick: Behind door number 10 of the Star Wars advent is another add on for the Tatooine theme, and this time its a miniature Tusken Raider Ballista seen in the beginning arc of Mandalorian Season 2 fighting the Krayt Dragon. While the shaping is effective enough with the tan teeth and brown studs, it doesn’t really look much like the in-universe design with the clunky stud-shooter and questionable white stud, as well as a 1×3 brick base that should probably be wheels. Unfortunately, this is another tough build in a dry streak for the Star Wars calendar.

No description available.
No description available.

Day 10- HP

Matt: Having just entered Diagon Alley through the magical wall/door in The Leaky Cauldron, Harry will need to take out some cash prior to hitting the shops. Next stop? The bank.

Day 10 gives us a service counter at Gringotts bank in Diagon Alley. This build reflects the one in the film, most notably the lamp on top of the counter. Gringotts, run by goblins, is the primary bank in the wizarding world. On the reverse of the counter, there’s a built-in step for what I suspect will be a goblin minifig (“And does Mr. Harry Potter have his key?”). The counter is arguably to scale for short-legged Harry forcing him to look up at the goblins, as seen in the film. The modified 1×1 reddish-brown “scroll” bricks are nice to get here and add a good touch. Overall, not the most exciting entry today but definitely not the worst we’ve seen so far this calendar season.

No description available.
No description available.

Verdict

Another day with no standout winners makes today another calendar disappointment. However, with its play-feature, on theme vehicle, and midi-scale build, the Tusken Raider Ballista takes the full two points keeping SW in the mix. In 2nd place, HP grabs a point with its screen-accurate Gringotts service counter, while MCU grabs 3rd place with its somewhat-to-scale EDITH drone build.

The race tightens up once again, and HP grabs a one point lead over MCU. The scores are now:

HP- 11

MCU- 10

SW- 9

To be continued…
