Pirate Advent 2009: Day 10

Pirate Advent 2009: Day 10

6299 - 2009 Pirate Advent Calendar - Day 10
Barrel of Junk

Wait.

This isn't right. This can't be right.

Every three days in a LEGO advent calendar you get a new mini-figure. It's like...tradition. It's nearly a law.

This is day 10. CITY got a Postman. And the Pirates get....this?

A barrel, a pick-axe and a shovel???

Three common LEGO parts. Parts so generic that they can't possibly be called "thematic".

I'm hurt, LEGO. You were doing so well up until now.

I paid $55 for this? That mermaid on the box cover must be spectacular.

@anon: Normally I'd delete and put a "no spoiler" warning...but since the box top has a lot of stuff on it that doesn't actually appear in the calendar....you might be getting your hopes up.

But, yes, for the money today's door is a real low blow.

They needs stuff to bury their treasure with on yesterday's desert island, arrr!

Ranger said...

Well...

...at least the shovel is black...
...that's a less common colour...

@Ranger

Thats the only colour i have it in!

Mind you, you're lucky. Mine had the contents of doors 7 and 10 swapped.

@Andy:

Ah, but that means you had a couple of days to get over the disappointment of the barrel- and a cool new Pirate Lass to add to your collection today. It could always have been worse- you could have gotten TWO day 10s and no day 7...

Even worse than last year's city day 3! (Well, I think that was the day and year. It was the one that was just a 1X2 brick, a 2X3 plate, and a cup)

I wouldn't call that Pickaxe common. It's not in that many sets you could find on Lego.com. In fact, I only have 1. Maybe "Mildly Uncommon".
I think that the Pirate Lass was supposed to be discovering treasure, and stuff. :P

Every single Power Miners set so far (save the Magma Zone sets) have had at least 1 pickaxe. Yeah.
