LEGO 41016: Friends, 60024: City, 75023: Star Wars Advent Calendar Day One Review.

 Well its the 1st of December and that means our kids (including me) get to start opening our Advent Calendars. My Daughter has the Friends, my Son has the Star Wars and I have the City one.
Each day I will do a quick review of what is inside each of the Friends, Star Wars and City Advent Calendars. 

First off the ranks is the Friends Calendar:

LEGO 41016: Friends Advent Calendar
 The set contains 213 pieces and retails for $49.99.
 Comes with 2 Mini-dolls.  
 Note: All photo's can be clicked on for a larger view.

Lets take a quick look at the box art.




Here is Day One. We get a Stephanie Mini-doll. The Torso has a single side print. The Torso and legs are unique to this set. 


Lets move on to the City Advent Calendar.

LEGO 60024: City Advent Calendar
 The set contains 244 pieces and retails for $49.99.
 Comes with 8 Minifigures.  

Another quick look at the box art.




In our First day we get a Police officer. He has a double sided torso print and printed legs. He comes with a spare Red coffee cup and a spare Black cap.


The last Advent Calendar we look at today is the Star Wars one.

LEGO 75023: Star Wars Advent Calendar
 The set contains 254 pieces and retails for $49.99.
 Comes with 9 Minifigures.  

Here is the box art.



For day One in the Star Wars Calendar we get an Astromech Droid, R5-F7 has been seen in the 9495: Gold Leader's Y-wing Starfighter.
He has front printing on his.... torso? and printing all around his.... head.

My Son LOVES Astromech Droids... So you should have seen his face when this was behind the first door. :)

For day one it was kind of fun to see what each of us had got. We all got a Minifig/doll... so Not much to build today. One thing I did notice is that in each of the calendars the numbers are all in the same positions. So when we did the first one we knew exactly where the other ones were going to be. Maybe mix it up next time around. After all, part of the fun is trying to find the day we need to open so we can build.

That is it for Day One of the Advent Calendar. Check in each day to see what the next build will be.

Thank you for dropping by. See you tomorrow!

Tan Tile out!
