Pirate Advent 2009: Day 15

Pirate Advent 2009: Day 15

6299 - 2009 Pirate Advent Calendar - Day 15
Underwater Treasure

Today's micro-set is very similar to Joe Crab's shack from December 9th. We get a little underwater diorama - a rock, a plant, and a tiny sea creature. The focus, though, isn't on the oyster, but rather the pearl it contains. Or, rather, the giant pink gem it contains.

I was trying to think of what part LEGO could have used instead of the gem to represent a pearl. Maybe a 1x1 round in the new flat silver? I don't know if that'd really scan as a pearl, though.

Eh. It's really not that important.

Today's set fits well with the Mermaid sub-theme, so I have no real complaints in that area either.

Maybe I'm getting mellow in my old age.

Can't complain, still basking in the afterglow of receiving the mermaid. That doesn't sound right, but I hope you know what I mean.
