Advent Madness: Day 6

VS

I have to say, I'm so not in the holiday spirit for today's reviews. The home repair that kept me from getting Day 4 out in a timely manner is being...difficult. So difficult, in fact, that last night the wife and I had to stay at a hotel because some, shall we say, essential plumbing wasn't quite ready at the end of the day.

*grumble grumble*

Okay, LEGO, let's see what you've got for me today. It had better be good.

DOOR NUMBER SIX


Another barricade.

Okay, I guess this is more of a "road sign" or "warning sign" than a barricade. But a big arrow pointing downwards - not a particularly good sign. Get it? NOT A GOOD SIGN.

Ha. What an awesome joke. I am teh funny today.

There are also a few extra pieces. Yesterday's door also had these same three bits as extras. I don't think that has any sort of cosmic significance, though.


DOOR NUMBER Six

Belville. Hrm. In the strip I joked that they seemed to be working their way through the seven deadly sins. We'd seen lust (the bed, the bottle of lotion) and greed (the chest of gems) already. I guess that makes today GLUTTONY. We've got a goblet of ice cream, a giant croissant, and a jug of wine. Not a bad spread, honestly.

The gold-toned plate is a nice accessory, and the food pieces are somewhat hard to find, but other than that today's set is really pretty plain. Not a lot of complex building going on.

JUDGMENT:
Today's CITY set uses the same "build the decoration out of tiles, rather than a sticker" choice that I admired in yesterday's offering. Plus, they used a bunch more of the transparent orange dots that I love.

Belville has...food.

I think CITY takes the day for having an actual mini-set to build.

FJ:
It's in the style of that site, but I created the text in the same program I use to create the strip normally. (Just used Arial Black font with a 3pt stroke)
