The most traditionally-themed of all five seasonal sets joins a line-up otherwise comprised of 75307 Star Wars Advent Calendar, 76390 Harry Potter Advent Calendar, 76196 Marvel The Avengers Advent Calendar and 41690 Friends Advent Calendar. And like those other daily countdowns, it’s due to launch at LEGO.com and in LEGO Stores on September 1.
It also comes in slightly cheaper than its licensed counterparts at £19.99 / $29.99 / €19.99, but still packs in 24 different mini-builds and minifigures – including (spoilers!) a firefighter, a hockey player, a tiny train, a miniature hospital, a carol singer, a snowman, and (of course) Santa Claus himself.
Based on how quickly last year’s LEGO advent calendars were snapped up (especially 75279 Star Wars Advent Calendar), you probably won’t want to sit on this one for too long. You’ll be able to pick up 60603 CITY Advent Calendar as early as next month, which is a fair way out from opening that first door on December 1, but there’s a lesson in patience there for all of us. Probably.
