Top Ten Days of the 60201 Lego City Advent Calendar (2018)

Woah, it's already almost christmas, and time has certainly gone by. So I have now gotten to open all the doors on the 2018 lego city advent calendar: 60201. And overall I found this calendar to be an enjoyable one! It's not as good as many previous calendars, but it's definitely recommended and I really thought it was a great one! We will be looking at the days of the advent calendar now, so without further ado, no catchphrase this time!
The Top Ten
1 Day 3: "Racecar"

Yes, I believe that Day 3 was the best day of the entire advent calendar. I never would have thought that the best item of the calendar would appear as early as Day 3! On this day, we received a small race car, and it looks incredibly impressive. While some people may find it quite simple overall, I find it very impressive. Although a character can't sit in it, a child can stand in it and drive. Not to mention, the wheels and the item on the back are quite rare pieces. This is definitely my favorite day!

2 Day 17: "Chef Minifigure"

This is hands-down the best minifigure. In my own experience, my favorite minifigures usually appear on the earlier days, but that isn't the case this time. This chef wears a beige knitted sweater and dark green trousers, and has a unique face and hat! This is my favorite minifigure in this calendar.

3 Day 22: "Robot and Skyscraper"

Day 22 was quite unique, and it's usually one of my favorite days of the advent calendars, apart from the 2014 calendar, I guess. This Day 22 offering comes with an awesome-looking robot that includes some cool pieces. While it may look a bit odd at times, it's a very unique build. The robot even has a clock on its belly, hinting that it's a clock toy. You also get a micro-scale skyscraper, which I assume the robot is meant to destroy. It's definitely an excellent build!

4 Day 11: "Electric Locomotive"

This build highly resembles a real-life train, and it looks awesome! Even with only a total of two colors (three, I guess), this train looks impressive and offers tons of playability. It reminds me a bit of the train you got in the 2013 calendar as well, except that one is more of a steam train variant, and the colors are different.

5 Day 13: "Girl With Ice Cream"

As we leave the excellent tier and move onto the awesome tier, we have Day 13 at number 5. This day features a little girl with a red shirt, glasses, a unique hair piece, and a unique face as well. In my view, Day 13 has never disappointed me, ever, and that trend continues with the 2018 calendar. I love how she also has an ice cream during winter. Then again, I eat ice cream at any time of the year as well.

6 Day 16: "Cake Stall"

This was quite an impressive-looking build overall, and I liked the amount of different colors and details put into this. The only flaw is that I wish the wheels were actual wheels. Other than that, it's awesome. I especially love the roof.

7 Day 18: "Monster Truck and Ramp"

Looking back at my predictions, I thought I would get this one on the first day.
*Seventeen days after the first day*
I was so wrong. But at least I got it. This one is simple but quite cool! You get a fine-looking monster truck with a ramp that can be put on top of the car, so it looks like a cowboy, or a car with a cap. If only the wheels were bigger, like actual monster truck wheels, this surely would have ranked higher.

8 Day 2: "Boy With Coin"

This was quite a cool minifigure that I certainly enjoyed a lot! While it seems basic on the outside, the more you study it, the more you realize how creative it is. The hat is quite rare and looks very good, and the coin is unique as well. You even get a spare one. However, the big plus about this minifigure is the double-sided head! This is the first time ever that a minifigure in an advent calendar comes with another face - a worried one! Ah, so awesome!

9 Day 7: "Woman With Shovel"

She may be the weakest minifigure of this year's calendar, but she's still a good one. The torso is quite unique, and the overall minifigure looks good. However, her face is quite basic, which is a minus.

10 Day 1: "Space Shuttle"

The first day of the advent calendar is usually quite an awesome build, and that trend continues here as well! Although it lacks some important details, it's instantly recognizable as a space shuttle with fuel tanks on its back. Although I prefer the 2015 variant of a space shuttle, this one is fairly great as well and offers a lot of playability.

The Contenders
11 Day 23: "Helicopter"

This ambulance helicopter looks awesome! Although I do wish the rotor blade was an actual Lego rotor blade and not just an underwhelming plank that you have to manually rotate, the rest of the helicopter looks pretty impressive and beautiful.

12 Day 19: "Remote Control Cars"

This one appears to be fairly similar to the ones in the 2015 calendar, although I'd say less effort was put into this one. It's a blue and red one, not a green and red one. Overall, these are really nice! They're quite creative, and the blue one is definitely my favorite of the two because, well, it's blue!
