Homemade Lego Advent Calendar 2014: Day 17

The story behind the Homemade Lego Advent Calendar: We opted not to buy the Dude a Lego Advent Calendar for the past couple of years. The Dude was quite amenable, countering with: "Ok, then you have to build me something every day until Christmas." Challenge  accepted! This is the series of daily posts, cataloguing my builds.

Have you ever played Super Meat Boy? We first discovered it when we watched Indie Game: The Movie. It has a very Super Mario-style of play, except that the main character is a small meat cube who has no skin. Everywhere he jumps he lives a squidgy muddy blog of goo behind. And as much as I hate save-the-princess story lines, this one is cute: he's trying to find Bandage Girl, you know, because he needs her. They need each other. D'awwww.

So, today's build is Super Meat Boy!

Super Meat Boy
I really like the style of this build, using standard sized pieces and taking advantage of the corners to create details. There are a lot of builds online that use this style, which is nice because it can be hard to find custom pieces at times. I based my design off this one on Game Informer. Too much fun, and a little obscure :)

See you tomorrow!

Next build - Day 18
