Top Ten Worst 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! I made a list about the best days of the calendar so now it's time for the worst ones. Keep in mind there was only one build I didn't really like in this calendar, just so you know, so let's get started!
This is the only build I didn't like at all in this advent calendar. So as you may know, in the lego city advent calendars, there are usually things that always appear in all calendars (almost), although they may look different. Christmas trees. dogs, presents, snowmen and santa are among them. However none of them are as boring as the dogs, as they serve no construction and have little to no variety! While this one isn't as terrible as say 2014's or 2015's due to the fact that the bowl is quite unique and you do get a chicken leg, it's still just so boring
Snowmen are usualkly among the best of the annual things you get in advent calendars. Well for the most part. They can be quite unqiue and cool, but this one is the worst since the 2014 by far! The design is a replica of the 2013 one, but the bottom is rounded, yay, how original! Also, he is holding coffee, kinda original but eh. Not bad but seriously below average. 2010 had the best snowman, followed by 2015 and 2016
So now we are getting into the ok tier. This lamp post isn't all too bad. But there has been numerous lamp post the last current years and all of them were overall more impressive to look at. This one is mostly just unaturally huge and thin. I think the 2016 lamp post was my favourite due to the impressive look of it
This isn't too bad. I mean it looks quite good, and it offers playability. My problem is how simple is looks like. There has been a few sleds in the past and they have all been more impressive overall. Also that snow pile, is confusing
This is one of those annual things you get in advent calendars (well they were strangely absent from the 2017 calendar along with dogs, anyway). Luckily these were quite impressive and unique compared to previous one and I would place this is the good tier.
2015-2017 was a dark era for lego city advent calendar christmas trees. They were just so dissapointing and had major flaws (the 2017 didn't even have decorations and that's saying something! ). Luckily this one is quite impressive. While it's also quite small like the ones in the dark era, that golden statue on the top is what makes it stand out so well!
This one isn't that bad either, it's quite cool. A candy cane clock tower is not something we get in every calendar! Plus the clock is a very rare piece. I think my only problem is that it doesn't offer much playability as it's, well, a small clock tower, now sure it's a candy cane, but overall, eh
This build overall just looks very unfinished in my opinion. Why is there only one window? And what's that grey thing? That driller looks so unfinished as well! I get it's based on a set but wow this looks just unfinished at best, I mean I'd probably place it in the good tier still, but that doesn't change that it looks unfinished!
I think the major flaw about this one is the fact that these goals have green on them, and soccer..., well. Say it with me guys: "It's not a winter sport! ". It offers playability and I appreciate the obscure building, but eh, it does feel out of place at the same time, and you could say the same thing about Day 12 too which wasn't one of my favourites either
I think I might have overreacted when I put this on the BEST list. While this certainly is a great build, that doesn't change that they look kinda underwhelming at the same time. No actual wheels and not much effort unfortuanely. It's great but I seriously overreacted.
