Advent Madness: CASTLE Day 6

Advent Madness Day Six


CASTLE
(Open the Doors Here)



Black Skeleton Warrior with Crossbow and Extra Arm

What th'?? The Castle Advent takes an unexpected turn today with a second mini-figure in the three-day Skeleton Theme. This time it's a black version of the warrior - a Yang to Wednesday's Ying, if you will.

Once again LEGO has provided an extra arm for the fellow - it's a bit strange, but those arms make great decorative parts on their own so I'm not complaining. The crossbow is "standard issue" brown - I would have preferred a dark-grey or silver to better match this fellow's coloration, but eh, it's a minor quibble.

The real question now is: Is this really Day Three of the Skeleton sub-theme....or is it Day One of a new Black Skeleton Sub-Theme?

I guess we'll find out tomorrow. In the meantime, it's a good thing that our Knight figure is fully armored - he's about to get double teamed!

aha, I've figured this out...

day 1. 24 days, day 24 is xmas themed, probably, so the white skeleton is this year's 2 day theme to balance it all out. I think.

Wow, That's a first. Still, Now you could, I dunno, switch their parts around to make "Super-Hyper-Telekinetic UberSkeletons"...
Maybe...
