Advent Madness: CITY Day 16

Advent Madness Day Sixteen
(Open the Doors Here)

Policeman with Deluxe camera and extra lens
(Or a glass. You make the call.)

Officer Grumpypants (City Advent 2005, Day 4 and 2006, Day 16) returns. This time in a new hat and carrying a camera.

I don't have a lot to say about this one. Changing a hat and accessory is really a sad level of effort when you're trying to make a sub-theme seem new and interesting.

Oh well. Maybe I can spin it as "continuity". That those who get a LEGO Advent Calendar every year know that friendly Officer Grumpypants will be in there somewhere to keep everyone safe.

Anyone buy that?

I assumed the policeman was a SOCO (Scene Of Crime Officer) with his cap and camera. Very CSI.

If you're reading the "Advent Wars" series, you'll see that Player A agreed with you! As soon as she saw this guy his name was "Grissom."

He seems to be wearing a diffrent, newer version of the police uniform of previous years, thats better right?

Great Escaper:

Sadly, it's the same torso as previous years.

I can't wait to find out what Player A thought of tomorrow's Advent Calendar items.

I'm not saying what, but you know where to look for an idea of what to expect next, if you don't want to wait for Chris to reveal the door.
