Homemade Lego Advent Calendar 2015: Day 12 - Dinosaur Skeleton

The story behind the Homemade Lego Advent Calendar: We opted not to buy the Dude a Lego Advent Calendar for the past few 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.

Today's build is inspired by the Lego Research Institute set which was possibly the only traditional (aka non-Friends) kit to ever feature all female characters. 
But that's not why I built this one. 
I built this because dinosaurs.

In case you're wondering about why the T-Rex is so small, that's because it's a Troodon. :) 

This was a fun build because I pretty much had to hack the entire design. It's less than 3 inches high and is pretty darn adorable.

See you tomorrow!
