i tried building one that was the size of a real nutcracker that worked on the lego creation builder thing, but it just added up to too much....

monsterlego (author)LucDaRocka12011-12-12

That's too bad, i'm going to try that with my lego collection.

LucDaRocka1 (author)monsterlego2011-12-20

Just in time for Christmas!

(You could trap a loop of thread between the bricks of his hat and hang it from your tree.)

It was worth the wait monsterlego! (I was probably looking most forward to seeing yours as you had said your entry in the Advent Calendar would be lego related.)

Great job, love the coattails. Hilarious.

Merry Christmas :)
