40222 Holiday Countdown Calendar

mpc28mpc28 UKMember Posts: 4
Can anyone tell me if the Holiday countdown calendar set (40222) builds 24 individual models so by Dec 24 you have 24 pieces or are you only able to build 1 model at a time then break it up for the next day.
Thanks

    According to the article on the main site a couple of days ago, no. Some require you to take other days models apart.

    The box for #40222 also states models cannot be built at the same time.

    ^hopefully I have enough spare bricks so I do not have to taken anything apart!

    Models can't be made at the same time. I'm just glad I got 250 pieces free :D

    Someone on Reddit calculated that if you have 8 of them you can build all 24 at the same time :-)

    You even need two sets to assemble the reindeer since it requires four 4161734 studs and it only brings two and a spare.

    I thought it used grey or metallic silver studs under tan 3062's for the legs?

    I guess you're right. My daughter was assembling it and, to be honest, at the time I didn't pay much attention to it since she just asked me to help her find the "missing piece".

    I stand corrected.

    I wonder how common the pieces included in this set are?  I mean, could one theoretically just pull from their "spares" pile or another bulk brick collection of some sort?  I mean, unless there are some truly unique pieces I would assume it's a lot of generic small pieces.  It is a free set after all right?

    These days "common" means different things to different people. Have a look in the parts list on the main site to see if you're likely to have what you need.

    Oh my God. Someone sat there and worked it out?
    Or they guessed and no-one has bothered to check! :-)

    I have 3 so far and extremely likely to get a 4th this week, so I'm halfway there!

    Unfortunately they're smart enough to only count "Lego merchandise" aka not PAB/B&P, or I'd be fairly close to 8 now as well :D
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,278
    I had no trouble getting my PAB purchase count towards my £60/EUR65 purchase for #40222. That was in a physical store though, not [email protected]

    Ah, that might be a difference vs online. Maybe PAB counts as well online, but most of my bricks come from B&P.
