City Advent Calendar: Day 3

Posted by ,

Minifigure-scale toys have been a consistent and enjoyable theme of LEGO City Advent Calendars during the last couple of years and I am hoping that will continue today, following the miniature Space Shuttle on day one.

Find out after the break...

This miniature cart definitely fits the bill! Its distinctive front and rear wings suggest that the model takes inspiration from Formula racing cars, in which case I like its childish proportions. Unfortunately, there are no tyres but that replicates the broad wheels of real Formula series racing cars quite effectively and I like the colour combination of red and black.

Only two exposed studs are available to place the minifigure but that is adequate as their short legs do not allow the figure to sit down. He looks rather tall when standing on the cart but that only increases its charm from my perspective.

Overall - 4.0 - This is a simple model but it forms a perfect accompaniment for the child from yesterday.

That is freaking cute. And it fits a kid-fig rather perfectly, from the looks of it.

This is in my opinion the best model so far, it just looks so good and well-done

Well, to be fair, it's Day 3, and there was a minifig behind one door, so ... ;)

Looks even better being driven by the Gizmo minifigure. That's a Christmas movie, right? ;-)

This explains his slightly concerned look IMO, he has clearly aimed his cart down a steep hill!

@quixotequest, I thought I was the only one who also called yesterday's minifigure Gizmo :D
