Day two of the advent calendar review had a couple fun builds and some garbage. Check out the December 2nd sets after the jump.
Friends Advent Calendar (41040)
The second day gives us a sled for Mia. As with all of the Friends sets we get some great colors mixed with the old safe ones. The 1x2 foot plate element in light purple (I call that pink) is a really cool piece. Mia fits nicely on the new sled, though the lack of articulation in the hands still bothers me with Friends minifigures.
City Advent Calendar (60063)
Today we get a mailbox for the young chap from yesterday to put his letter in. I appreciate the frog figure, but it seems very weird in a snow scene as the frog would certainly be hibernating by now.
Star Wars Advent Calendar (75056)
Today we get a Super Battle Droid figure. These are rubbish. To get this image it took me the better part of a minute to actually get the thing to stand on its own on the slick surface without resorting to a piece of plate. The battle droid, medical droid and tactical droid figures are just flimsy crap that are not up to the quality that I expect from Lego. The issue is that they are too light; They need some tungsten in their feet.
