Top Ten Days of the 60099 Lego City Advent Calendar (2015)The 2015 Lego City advent calendar was alongside the 2011 one, my favourite advent calendar by far. Most of why is thanks to the amazing stuff you get in the calendar, which we'll look at now. With that being said here is the list.
Alright, this has got to be one of the best gifts in any Lego City calendar. The 2015 set alone is my favorite, tied with the 2011 set. What makes this one so special are the numerous amazing mini-builds. The winner among these is definitely the front part of Santa's train that you get on Day 14. It looks amazing! It has nice little wheels, a beautiful red color, and a perfect shape. Everything about it is perfect! It's even better once you get the trailer with presents and Santa. It becomes absolutely flawless. By far the best thing this calendar has ever offered.
By far the best-looking vehicle in any calendar. So why isn't it #1? Well, because the train becomes even cooler once you get the trailer as well. But if we're just counting individual vehicles that span one day, this plane is about as perfect as it can get. The design and appearance are so realistic that you wouldn't be surprised if you saw a real plane shaped like this in real life. It's that well-designed! The propeller at the front looks very good. It has wheels and blue wings. It's just perfect in every way!
Dude, this calendar did such a great job on its vehicles! They all seem to be just amazing. No design flaws. They're all great-looking. The same can be said for this yellow bulldozer as well. It has no design flaws, except for the lack of a potential seat, but that's okay. I still prefer the train and plane as they're overall just bigger and more impressive, but this is great as well!
This space shuttle looks absolutely amazing! Technically, you're supposed to put it on the rockets from the day before to make it a complete spaceship (as those are the fuel), but even without them, it looks great! It really looks like a miniature space shuttle and could compete with the items above this one for best mini-model of 2015.
The rockets go along with the shuttle, but again, even without the shuttle, they look really great! I love the two thin rockets that are attached to the brown rocket fuel "rocket," and overall, it just really looks amazing. This calendar sure did a good job on the mini-models.
Not much to say about this one, other than that it's the really good-looking trailer for Santa's train that you get on Day 14. Combined, it's the greatest thing ever. On its own, though, I can't put it above any of the mini-models. It's just a trailer, let's be real. But it's great for what it is!
The minifigures for this calendar were okay. The best one for me isn't what most people would expect, but I digress. It's a little boy with blue clothing and a jacket hoodie, holding two valuable pieces - a camera and a pretzel. This is primarily why this one got ahead of the other figures. Sure, the clothing could've had more detailing, but I still think this is the cutest minifigure we got.
Let's be real: no snowman will be better than the 2010 one. However, I do think the 2015 version comes close and might be the second-best one. It's not big, but it's not too small and cramped either. The size is natural, and the pieces included make it look just good. Not great, but there's really nothing to complain about either. So, it's good!
Certainly the most random gift in the calendar, but it's greatly built! I'm guessing it's a throne for Santa Claus, but I always just used the green boy for it. It's the perfect size so that it's big for the minifigure but not too big to be questionable. The colors are pretty good too, as it's red and green on brown wood. Overall, it's great!
Compared to the other minifigures in the calendar, this was the most unique. All of the pieces here were new to me when I first got it. You've finally got a feminine child face, long hair, a music player, a muffin, and a cool shirt piece. Of course, this would be on the list.
