I for one enjoy seeing one item per day.  Not having the set, it's fun to see what's next.

The train sub-theme has been my favorite.  Neat additions to the train theme.  They would make a great small or poly-bag set.

The new subtheme is the maintenance of the town. Nice! We need more sets from extra other subtheme than the classic ones.

See you tomorow...

Perhaps this fig is a preview for the figurines included with the dumptruck next year!

I like the train cart thingy a lot. The worker somehow reminds me of a zoo employee.

On a more general note: I enjoy reading this topic. Keep up the good work :-)

I was thinking that, too. But seeing today's set, which is excellent, it's definitely maintenance :-)

This little think is really nice *wub* . It shows that with just few pieces, you can do some real nice town accessories. It's my second best set with the blue train miniset, even if the other are good too. But they remind me the diversity of a real town, like in the golden years. Just hope that TLC will continue in this way, it sounds like that...
Kikuichimonji and Hobbes, this fig reminds me of a zoo employee too! Happy that you like my "work"! :-P


See you tomorow...

Neat. I especially like the wheels of that cart.
Man it bothers me that the calendar was sold out when I tried to get one and now they´re superprised on BL. *n*  *n*

Yeah, me too... What is it with this guy? And I kind of feel that the cart has a zoo-ish feel to it, too, like some animal food in that bin or something.  I've always hoped that hoped that TLC would come up with MF-Zoo... But I guess that would be too much to hope for.

And Thank You for this thread, I look forward in reading the daily posts here almost as much as in opening the next door in the actual calender :-)

Well that's pretty cool since I live in Copenhagen. I'm off to catch the train and pay 3 times the price of the calendar just to get to Horsens |-/  

BTW can You pick up one for me?

Nice.  Definately looks like a forest ranger, zoo keeper, wild game hunter, or someone who works with animals.  It's still a nice shirt.  It would work for the Adventurer theme too.

It's my second best subtheme after the train. Just for them, I don't regret, I mean I'm really happy  to have bought this calandar (I would buy it in any case!)

See you tomorrow for a new subtheme...

*wub* These are just fantastic! I think the size and design of these mini-sets are a big improvement over the 2005 City advent calendar, and I loved that one!

I still can't decide whether this latest set is supposed to be a phone booth or a cash machine, but I love it anyway because I could make it into either! And when was the last time Lego produced those flower pieces? I actually think this new guy looks like a park keeper, especially because of the green base and flowers.

The new subtheme is the police.

Just note that we will have this subtheme and 3 others, for 9 days. So we will have 3 subthemes with only 2 minisets and one with 3 : 1 subtheme with 3 minisets + 3 subthemes with 2 minisets= 9 days.

See you tomorrow...
