About this deal

It seems that every year is hit or miss as far which advent theme will be great and which will fall short. Thought I'd try something different this year and purchased the Avengers calendar, and it was really disappointing.

We get an Iron Man Reindeer, a robotic Reindeer in Iron Man’s signature crimson and gold colours, complete with its very own Arc Reactor. I receive a small commission if you purchase something, which helps support the work I do on the blog! I've looked ahead at the product images and it doesnt look any better, he's already got most of the figures minus the xmas jumper ones, and most of the mini builds so far have just been dumped right in his part box, they don't interest him or connect up well.I do like the HUD (heads up display) on Tony’s face, which looks cool, and he also comes with 2 power blasts elements, which you can flick by pressing the “tails” inwards to fire them as projectiles. Three days into the 2023 Marvel Avengers Advent Calendar and I’m fully surprised to get 2 minifigures already – fans should be quite happy as Iron Man has a companion and there’s so much playability with 2 minifigures right out of the bat. Of 15 days so far, only 3 have had anythinf worthwhile, that being Spiderman, Okoye and Widow, and even then Widow still has that awful inaccurate head. These attach to Spider-Man’s hands so you can create multiple action shots, and I guess the Pearl Gold is festive?

While it’s well-designed, using a car door as wrapping paper, and you get a pair of scissors (plus a spare! On Day 19 of the 2023 LEGO Marvel Avengers Advent Calendar, we get another linked segment build with a table, lamp and a red apple.Strange is tomorrow, maybe if he had come first and the cape the next day it would have been different? The colour scheme is unlike any of the other builds, and does a great job of injecting some green into all the dark red and grey. I said of the Marvel calendar last year that I’m almost checking in every day to see how bad it gets and I can’t believe it’s the same again this year! LEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure, DUPLO, the FRIENDS logo, the MINIFIGURES logo, DREAMZzz, NINJAGO, VIDIYO and MINDSTORMS are trademarks of the LEGO Group. With no Christmas Tree in sight, it doesn’t take a genius (billionaire, playboy, philanthropist) to guess what we’re getting on the final day!

Day 5 of the Marvel gives us an Iron Man Snowman, complete with a fancy top hat, a trans-blue arc reactor in its chest, and two white blasters for arms. I don’t think there’s been a case where contents of previous windows have been used in a new window, so this is a really novel and inventive way to repurpose those webbing elements, which look great in this case. As always, the instruction of each day’s builds are printed on the inside of the doors, so be careful and try not to rip them out! While I had fun opening everything at once, I couldn't help but feeling a little dissapointed after. And that’s it for Day 18 – at least there’s a healthy number of minifigures here, but I still feel like LEGO should’ve included the Cape with the Doctor Strange minifigure – it just feels like they’re stretching out the days by splitting up key accessories and their corresponding minifigures.com An in-depth review of the LEGO Dune Ornithopter featuring working wing functions and a great minifig lineup including LEGO Baron Harkonnen!
