Lego 2017 Advent Calendars

Official pictures of the 2017 Lego Advent Calendars have been unveiled, showing a pretty good idea of these three seasonal sets. My favorite, as usual, is the City Calendar (the mini-figures as usual look really nice) but the other two have also plenty of pretty nice elements.

The Friends (41326) set is the smallest in terms of piece count with only two hundred and seventeen pieces and the biggest, the Star Wars (75184), have more than three hundred bricks. Like in past years, both will be available on General retail next October with prices between thirty and forty

Lego 60133 – City Advent Calendar

Almost five months to Christmas and here we have the next City Advent Calendar with the traditional twenty four gifts. I always love to have a close look to these kind of sets, there are always some interesting parts to enjoy and most of the times there are a couple of mini-figures that are very difficult to find in other sets.

Lego 60099 – City Advent Calendar

The new City Advent Calendar has just hit stores. The two hundred and seventy eight pieces include the usual twenty four gifts and a lot of great stuff to enjoy.

Through the images it is possible to identify the complete list that consists on a small stand, an ice lake, a couple of remote controlled cars, an airplane, a excavator, a street lamp, a chair, a Christmas tree, a clock, a couple of gifts, a red train, a snowman, a police snowmobile, an husky puppy, a small fire and finally two replicas of the space shuttle and space port.

As usual in this Continue reading
