City Advent Calendar - Day 3

Posted by ,

This year's City Advent calendar contains 8 minifigs which means we should find one every three days.

Fingers crossed for today, then...

Our first minfig is suitably attired for the northern hemisphere weather at this time of year and is equipped with a broom for sweeping snow.

It's a unique minifig, although the individual parts have been used before. The medium blue torso can be found in last year's 60183 Heavy Cargo Transport and this years 60203 Ski Resort.

The hood piece was introduced in 2011, in tan and dark blue, and was worn by Han Solo in 7879 Hoth Echo Base. The dark azure version is the newest, having first appeared in last year's Arctic sets.

Judging by his alternative expression, something has amused him...

This is a very nice figure although it would have looked better if the hood was the same colour as the jacket.

This is a very interesting minifigure. The parts used here appear to be quite rare and it's nice to get a broom. Probably the best thing to come out of this otherwise so far mediocre advent calendar in my opinion. 5/5

Agreed with CityIsAwesome, best thing in this calendar yet. Love that alternative face.

He clearly just launched loo roll at the missus.

Finally a minifig! I really like this guy, and I really love the alternative laughing expression. He just looks so darn cheerful.

He's got a broom, so I imagine he's playing, is it curling? Is that the name of the sport?

So, minifigure moustaches seem to indicate that minifigures have noses, as do glasses I suppose. But what is the truth? Do they?

@Jackthenipper There are some mysteries that will never be solved. Until of course they make everyone look like they're Timmy from Time Cruisers

Yeah, that's a 4.5/5 if I ever saw one; if this lad had printed legs, he'd get full marks. Lovely facial expressions.

The almost-the-same colours of the jacket and the trousers/hood hurts my eyes. A totally different jacket would have been better.

Nice. My kids (6 & 4) are going to love having a target for the snow flinger. This is our first Lego Advent calendar, and they've enjoyed it so far. Last night they were flinging the snow and using the plow to push the snow back to flinger. Now they'll have a target or driver.

Mmmm... Really digging those colors, the newer blue shades in Lego's catalogue are some of my favorites, I wonder if that face was particularly chosen to match the broom or not

I have that head.

It's better than the previous two days. I like the expressive face, the broom and the hood.
4/5

Nice colors and faceprint.

I don't mind the different shade of blue for the torso, the printing and white arms make it better then if it were just 1 full Dark Azure figure.

I think it would be nicer if the hood and torso matched. The difference between legs and torso is fine, but the hood being different from the torso but the same as the legs is visially off.
