CITY Advent 2009: Day 22

CITY Advent: Day 22

7687 - 2009 City Advent - Day 22
Lumberjack Supplies

Oh good! Yesterday's Stephen King moment was a false alarm! Turns out our Axe Wielding Maniac was just a friendly lumberjack!

And what possible Holiday Link could a lumberjack have?

Oh, please LEGO...let my guess about tomorrow's set be on the mark...

TLG have really outdone themselves this time, I can't imagine the last time this many pieces were in one Advent calendar day.

As to what a lumberjack could possibly have to do with Christmas, how many people in the US still use traditional wood-fired stoves to cook their turkey in these days? Or even a modern version?

It at least fits in a little with the Christmas theme, since in days gone by they'd be gathering firewood for the fireplace, and people still want a genuine chopped down Christmas tree for hanging the decorations on, although the plastic and plastic-metal composite varities are getting more commonplace.

Now that I've seen this chainsaw, I've gotta see you make a Buzzkill of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

It's only five pieces, but I really like that chainsaw build.

Yeah... Geoffrey said what I was thinking.

And did my mention of the Lumberjack song yesterday cause you to link to this video?

@Andrew: In order to make sure the advent stuff publishes on time I have to have these posts written ahead of time...so I had this post written early last week - long before you commented.

@Geoffrey i think the has something to with christmas because well you can't really have X-mas without a tree so mabye thats wat its for (thats just my guess)

Is that the chainsaw from Serious Sam: The Second Encounter or something? It certainly looks like it. If it is, then the only winter/holidays tie-in would be the fact that the second-to-last level had a winter theme (complete with a santa easter egg)

The chainsaw doesn't fix the maniac thing.
