Advent Madness: CITY Day 7

Advent Madness Day Seven
(Open the Doors Here)

Fireman with Hand-Radio

Shocker. A three-day sub-theme completes, and now we find ourselves facing a new mini-figure introducing (we can only assume) yet another sub-theme. Or, as is the case here, a re-hash of a sub-theme.

Sure, fire fighters are cool - but every year we have a visit from virtually the same guy. Heck, it hasn't even been that long - he was behind door #1 in 2007. And in 2006 our Fireman was behind door 22 - with, may I add, much cooler accessories. The only thing that really changes from year to year is the figure's face. And it's always a common one, like today's stubbly-smirk.

But you never know. The mini-sets so far have been a pleasant departure from past adventures. Maybe Sparky here will be taking part in something unexpected as well.

This makes no sense. Look closely at his uniform on the left. There is already a scaled radio there, so why is he given a HUGE radio then? Think about it, that would be like carrying around one of those 80s "brick" phones, that weigh alot!

Ok, I happen to know what's coming up in the next couple of days calendar-wise and, without wishing to spoil the surpise, you might want to, uh... brace yourselves for disappointment. I'm just sayin'
