The firetruck is a simple toy to have but looks great. It even has a little ladder. :thumbup:

Day 8:

Apologies for the late posting....:( College work sucks.....

Today we were given a "second" utility wall, but this time with a little roof, ski poles and skis....
Posted Image
On a side note: This is the only day so far that the bag (shown behind) has been of the old kind i.e. perforated.
I liked it when my Lego was sealed fresh......I wonder what provoked this...

UPDATE: Apparently Brickshelf decided that my photo is upside down....If you click through it will be the right way up....I really don't know why it did that!

Day 9:
Today we have a mechanic mini fig!
Posted Image

Included are an extra wrench and new style black cap.

FYI: Brickshelf seems to have problems when i upload photos now.....it flips them in the thumbnail, but when you click through to the actual link, it is the right way up....Anyone else having or had this problem before?

Well getting a second wall is kind of a shame as it would be great if there were no repeats, but oh well, at least it's a bit different. On a side note, the mechanic looks great. :wink:

I love the mechanic, so simple and elegant.  I gotta admit I'm having a really good time with this calendar, unfortunately (or fortunately depending on who you ask) my son got to it and opened all the doors yesterday so we just built it all at once.  There's some pretty cool stuff in there bit I won't spoil it ;)

Toady was another disappointment....ugh.....

Yup, we got a red (couldn't the do one in another colour? I have 10 of these already...) dolly and 4 wheels with white rims....

I really don't get what this is for, if the theme is fire this year.......

Yeah, I guess having a few extra wheels is handy at times but then again, it is a bit of a disappointment.

I agree with this one especially when these "slick" tires are on PAB at my local stores, but the dolly is nice can't have too many but it would be nice to see it in another color

Day 11: (WOO DOUBLE DIGITS)....I'm probably the only one that gets excited by that.....

Today we get (what i initially thought was) a sort of ski thing?
Posted Image

Interesting...huh....

Then i realized that maybe the slick tires from yesterday weren't pointless after all, and when combine with the mechanic....
Posted Image
It's snow cat! or whatever they are called. 4x4 thing.

Opinions?

I got my first calendar this year. Love it. But I wonder, is this a boy or a girl? When comparing today's kid with the ones from set 10229, it has the torso of the boy and the head of the girl. I'm puzzled...

You mean the Day 6 minifigure? I don't see why it can't be either one. I'd say it's whichever sex you want it to be.

You know I never thought of using those as mirrors on heavy vehicles before......I wonder what it would look like......ah, that's what LDD is for ! :laugh:
Cool a female fire fighter.......working overtime to afford implants if you know what I mean :blush: .......seriously if Lego gave us a female torso for the police chief in the forest police station then a female fire fighting torso would be a help......one day they'll learn ! :blush:
Thanks for doing these little reviews 'WideWiiLover'....Brick On in Advent ! :sweet:

Day 14:
Apologies for the late upload.....Had to take my MacBook Pro to the Bar of Geniuses.....apparently it needs a new battery! It is over 3 years old though so....:/

Back to LEGO!!!
Today we got a brown crate, and some "portable" fire.
Posted Image
The image on the door shows them inside, but they don't fit in well. I guess these might be for a minfig Hobo?

I was surprised to see a connection that TLG, if I remember correctly, officially considers "illegal" being used. Because of the material that transparent pieces are made of, the flames and the cones are very hard to separate again.

Today we were graced with our third storage wall.

On an alternative note, you can connect all three walls together using the ski wall and connecting using the slopes.

Just a little FYI!
