Top Ten Worst 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. Although there was a significant minority of underwhelming things too, which we'll look at now. With that being said here is the list.
Yet again, my least favourite day of the Lego City calendar was the one that came with only a Dog (and bowl). Why? Because it's just one piece and there's nothing to build. Not to mention I don't like dogs in general. What set this one apart was that it was no ordinary dog, rather a husky. This was the first husky in a Lego City calendar. But soon huskies would also become the only dog in Lego City, which made them even more bland than the regular brown dogs. So by far, this is my least favourite.
This one isn't "bad" per say, but it's certainly one of the most underwhelming gifts, especially for being so far into the calendar. It's just a small fireplace, and two sticks with "marshmellows" on them. Why this couldn't have come bundled with..., say, the girl on Day 19, I don't know. But I do know that this was underwhelming at best.
Downright ugly, if I do say so myself. It's basically a small stand for a coffee shop, but it's not only way too small, and has bland colours, but it's also way too thin. Ugly on so many levels that it's unreal. But I put it below the fireplace and husky because at least this is kinda interesting, but it's still bad.
Here comes the squad of annual gifts that appear in every calendar. Overall, christmas trees are really generic most of the time, but I usually can stand them if they at least look good. But 2015 did a really terrible job on the christmas tree! That's not saying much though as all of the christmas trees succeeding this one were even worse (2018 gets a pass though). It just looks..., so unnaturally looking. The ones preceding this had simple but sensible designs, like the base. This one lacks a real base that holds up the tree, it's just one round 1x1 piece. It's not only impractical, but it ugly as well! And the "rug" which the tree usually stands on is just a cross..., it's so ugly!
Likewise, I think 2015 did a really poor job on the presents as well, only beating the 2019 ones. It's not that they look bad, just generic. And the colours..., In my opinion, blue and yellow was a good choice, but who the FRICK thought the other present should be orange and barf green!? There's no more ugly combination than THIS! In my opinion, this isn't bad, but definitely one of the weakest parts of this calendar.
I like my snowmobiles, but this was pretty terrible for being that. It's not bad on its own, but it's certainly a bad snowmobile. My main complaint is that the three continous tracks that made the bottom part of the snowmobile can fall off so damn easily! You don't even have to use energy to accidently knock them off! And the look itself of the snowmobile could've been better. It's just kind of "boring".
Looks like there is ONE mini vehicle-infested day of this calendar which wasn't that great, namely the first day. It's basically just two very small RC cars (green and red), that come with their respective controllers. They look absolutely fine, but why put not only one, but TWO RC cars on the very first day, before we've even gotten any mini figures? This is one bad thing this calendar did, as mini figures since 2015 appear only after the first day, which is really questionable.
Now we go from the really underwhelming builds to actually decent stuff, starting with a streetlight with a clock. We get two streetlights in this calendar, a standard one, and one with a clock, but I think the clock one of significantly worse. It just doesn't look nearly as great as the standard one, that's all.
This is..., an overall pretty cool looking build. I never cared for it when I first got it, since there isn't much to do with a streetlight, but after getting numerous streetlights in following calendars, I appreciate this one for at least actually looking awesome.
Nothing that exciting, but it's a nice little thing. You get this tiny ice rink, with this bar holding a bucket of ice skates. It holds a lot of playability. It's only on the list because the other stuff in the calendar is even better.
