Top Ten Days of the 4428 Lego City Advent Calendar (2012)A week ago I made a list about the best days of the 7553 lego city advent calendar. The 2011 city calendar. Now I'll move on to 2012. This is one of my least favourite lego city advent calendars personally because I felt it was too fire-obsessed and too much yellow. It still has its good points too though. With that being said here is the list.
The Top Ten
This is probably the most unexpected and random gift to ever arrive in a lego city advent calendar. The randomnes, and the fact, that love computers, makes this my favourite gift in this otherwise uninteresting calendar. The design is amazing! The desktop, the computer screen, the yellow cup on the table, the chair. There's just nothing noteworthy that I can say about this build that doesn't appreciate me. Best gift from the calendar.
A lot of people I've met really don't like it when weapons rack appear in lego star wars calendars and I can understand why as they are boring and uninspiring at best. There's an equivalent to it in this city calendar. A tools rack for firemen but it's actually pretty cool. It consists of three different parts of a wall and each wall comes with different equippment. The main reason this got so high is because of the middle part of the wall you get in Day 8. You get a pair of skiis! I love skiing pieces in lego. So much fun! So yeah this is high up.
Whenever the 24th day of a lego city advent calendar comes up nowadays I'm never excited because it's always the same thing every year with minor changes. That wasn't always the case, as it was only since 2013 this was a thing. 2012 actually had a really awesome last day on its calendar. It's not just santa himself, but even a snowmobile! Earlier on you get a snowmobile trailer and two presents so now with this you can connect them all. Such a fun gift! Not to mention the snowmobile lookse awesome!
This is a pretty good vehicle in my opinion. I like the design of this but I do have a lot of complaints because I hate that rudder or whatever it's called. Instead of a wheel, we get this other thing to steer the car with for the character that so hard to make the character hold it and when you try to remove the character from it, the entire thing breaks! I also think the design is a little boring. Man we're only at #4 and already does it sound like I'm not very impressed by this year's calendar. But it still looks good in my opinion.
This is pretty good. Although it's a little weird you get the snowmobile trailer earlier than the snowmobile itself, it looks pretty good in my opinion. A little basic and weird without the presents on them, but other than that, I'd say this is a pretty solid build in my opinion. Not much to say here. I like the red colour.
This is a quite a nice build. I really like the design of this one. A lot of catapults and flingers have the same boring design but this is an exception. Quite original and inspiring, which is ironic coming from this otherwise uninspired calendar. The colours go really well together and it just looks very good.
This is probably my favourite of the minifigs in this calendar. This or the Day 1 one (no pun intended). I'm a big fan of this particular mischeavous face and together with the helmet and red cup he looks really nice and funny. Definitely my favourite minifigure of this set.
I'm divided on wether this or Day 19 is a better minifigure but for now this stays below. But in all seriousness this minifigure has one of the most interesting and unique faces of early 2010s lego city. This makes this minifigure a quite unique and interesting character in my opinion. I like it a lot.
There are two kid minifigs in this calendar. A boy and a girl. Both are pretty cool minifigures but I think the girl is slightly better. The design is less ordinary and more unique with the hair piece and better torso. It's red and is quite uncommon it seems. So yeah this is #9 to me.
Pretty good but this is quite uninspiring. It uses a grey jacket as a torso and small dark blue legs. Nothing wrong with that but the face is the same as the girls and is so common it's unreal. Almost all advent calendars use this face for a kid character. On top of that, no hair. Just a helmet for skiis maybe? Well it's uninspiring. But it's still decent.
