Advent day 1
Having just got back from our Christmas party at LLW (which was great BTW), I've just read through my RSS subscriptions and was shocked to see that every Tom, Dick and Harriet are doing Advent countdowns on their blogs this year!
It will be interesting to read their take on the models but with my photographs and your comments, together we'll make sure Brickset's is the best on the 'net :-)
For day one of the City calendar, we have a fireman. I'm not a big fan of emergency services sets but this year the fire minifigs are so much more realistic than in previous years with their high-vis outfits, printed legs, and dark red helmets.
The bag contains a spare helmet and 'megaphone'.
This one is, I believe, Olivia, who's sporting a lovely festive jumper. There's not much more to say about her, but hopefully in the coming days we'll get some neat models for her to interact with.
Overall then, all three calendars are off to a good start. My scores out of 10 for each are:
City -- 8, nice fig, spare hat.
Friends -- 8, unique festive mini-doll.
Star Wars -- 7, good effort, maybe a bit on the small side.
