Just coming in at 10 is this quaint little van, particularly the more recent blue version, that looks really cool, has a nice range of parts and is well designed. Tied in this is another set;

7, a great set with lots of little accessories and a minifigure that has multiple items to put on it. Great detail all around, the only real flaw is the tyres stick out a bit weirdly.

6 is another set that struck me for it's pure simplicity. A nicely designed car, with a few extra pieces that i haven't seen in a while, the red grille pieces on the front for example. LEGO need to do more civilian sets, they're really good!

5, yet again, simplicity is the key idea here. No weird action features or incongrous burden to pull, just a nice, detailed car with a minifig. Tied;

The box pieces aren't used enough i think, they are great for storage and look good. For a change the car actually has doors, which is why i think it's a shame i took it apart. They should've done more hospital sets - not that they can't anymore!

It was hard to decide where this one should come, 3 is about right. The set looks really good, theres a great amount to it, and four minifigs is a nice amount for it's buck. The truck looks great in any city, and the mini-station looks good if you have other similar buildings - like me.

2 is one of my all time favourites, a great set with quirky gimmicks, a great looking plane, plenty of features and good minifigs, though a few more couldn't have hurted. My biggest complaint is that they've done a new one so soon!

And, number one, my all time favourite, has to be City Corner. The first large scale civilian set we've had in almost a decade doesn't dissapoint at all! What surprised me is the level of detail, each building could be it's own set, as could the bus - which is once again really good. I wonder if they'll do more sets like these... a park, market, or town centre would really make a city complete!
