Top Ten Days of the 7553 Lego City Advent Calendar (2011)As I am making this list, it's already December 1st of 2019. Man how times fly by. Remember how last year when the year was over, I made lists about the best and worst days of the Lego City 2019 calendar? No? Of course. Well I'm going to do the exact same thing..., again, but with previous years. I'll start with 2011 as that was my first advent calendar of all time and my favourite as well. So I'll start with the best ones. With that being said here is the list.
The Top Ten
Just..., wow. Looking back I am incredibly astonished that we got this building in an advent calendar. In case you don't know (you probably don't), in the 2011 calendar, there were two specific builds where the pieces were spread out over the days of the advent calendar because they were just huge and these were this lovely prison and a police car. This is hands down one of the most impressive builds. It's huge for advent calendar standards! The fact they made this entire prison in an advent calendar screams 1st place!
If we'd juts include single days on the list this would've been first. But the prison is objectively better when done. I've always loved mini-builds and vehicles or toys in advent calendars. I don't know they've just always catched by interests and the orange snowmobile from 2011 city calendar is one of the finest examples of an awesome build. The design is excellent! The colour scheme is excellent too. The orange and grey together is so fitting. And the awesome grey wheel to steer the snowmobile looks great. Honestly deserving of near the top.
This is the other build in the calendar which pieces are spread out over three days along with the prison. It's slightly worse though but you see it's still #3 on the list. It looks very incredibly great in my opinion when it's done. Some say it looks underwhelming but I think it serves its purpose as an advent calendar police car that isn't your typical cop car. The yellow wheel used to steer is a bit odd but I really like all the details of this build. #3 on my list.
This is an identical copy of the snowmobile two days earlier but this is a police snowmobile as you can tell from the white and blue colour scheme plus some grey. I mean some will say it's an unoriginal act, but didn't I already talk about how awesome the orange one was? Well don't fix what's not broken. This building is awesome but the colour scheme is just less appealing so it's two spots lower.
The first ever minifigure I ever got in Lego City and the first day of my all-time favourite advent calendar and this guy was one of, if not the best starts. Because of him I always get excited when you get a robber/thief in an city advent calendar. Well unfortunately since 2016 it never comes but the legacy loves on. This guy in particular looks awesome! That face, clothes, red scarf, black hat. All of it together just look downright amazing! My favourite minifigure of all time tied with the fisherman from Day 9.
Back in the day when the last day of the advent calendar actually was fun and exciting and not just another santa figure. Anyways in this last day of my favourite advent calendar and you get santa obviously but on top fo that another build makes an appearance as well alongside santa so that it won't be the same ol' last figure. A chimney with an excellent colour scheme of red and grey. It looks really great and I was myself surprised when I found out of was not just santa in the day. Excellent!
Aah the green fisherman. The only civilian of the entire calendar. I don't know but I've always just adored this minidfigure. He might be my favourite of the entire lego city calendar series tied with the robber from day 1. I downright LOVE that that green jacket and hoodie along with the grey trousers! He also comes with an axe for picking in the ice. He's awesome!
This is clearly bias if I must be honest because in reality this minifigure is actually quite generic compared to the other robber. He looks like your average 2011 lego city robber with a crowbar. However may I remind you that I talked about how I always got excited whenever a thief minifigure came after I got the other robber? Yeah. On top of that, I have never ever had a lego crowbar before and I mean to be honest he does looks pretty awesome.
This is one of the most unique and original buildings I have stumbled across a lego city advent calendar of all things. Like, a small table with a ligh that shines on a magnifient glass. This screams cops'n'robbers as we get a magnifient glass that is commonly used in real life to examine stuff thieves might have stolen. It's so original and clearly is deserving of being on the list.
Another incredibly original building I stumbled across on this calendar. It's a huge safe vault, enough said. Not only a safe vault, but you also get two gold pieces that come along with it. This offers so much playability and I'm just astonished how much originality we got in this calendar. Nowadays we rarely get anything like this. It definitely is an awesome build.
