LEGO 41040: Friends, 60063: City, 75056: Star Wars 2014 Advent Calendar, Day Eleven Review.

Hello and welcome back for Day 11.

What a great morning to wake up to. I woke up to find both kiddies ready for School and Kinda. My wife was on night shift and came home with some nice hot Bacon and Egg Mcmuffins! Yum!

Now that the house is nice and quite with both kids out for the rest of the day, I might go take an afternoon nap after I do this review... :-)

This morning Chloe got to build an Oven with a Stove Top. To be honest she wasn't all that impressed with it. I get that cooking and having a hot meal is essential to any Christmas day but really? It needs to be recreated in Lego? I haven't seen a lot of fun activities in this Friends Calendar. It's more geared for a "Let's play house wife" type of deal and I'm not liking it. And neither is my daughter. The only thing remotely fun so far in this years Calendar is the toboggan/sled from day 2.  Even that looks odd when the minidoll is sitting on it. Any way here it is... 

One spare.


I got to build our 4th Minifigure so far from the City Calendar. A Police Officer with a Loud Speaker and a Music Sheet. He has the 2014 Police torso that has printing on both sides. If you are like us, you would already have plenty of these guys. It's still a fantastic looking print and I love the newer style hat he comes with too.

A Spare Loud Speaker.


Jaspa got a Tie Fighter Pilot this morning, the same one that is also in the micofighters 75031: TIE Interceptor. It's a wonderful looking figure. He has printing on both the front and back of his torso and also has printing on his legs. Jaspa was thrilled with him but he needed to find his friend from 75031: TIE Interceptor in his "Tub"... Lets just say that was not fun to look for. lol.

The only thing that looks odd is that his flesh coloured head is exposed at the back. He probably should have gotten Day 8's Snow Trooper head instead.

That's it for Day 11 of the Advent Calendar reviews. Thank you for dropping by and check in again with us tomorrow to see what little goodies we get to build. :-)

Tan Tile signing out! See you all tomorrow.
