Pirate Advent 2009: Day 20

Pirate Advent 2009: Day 20

6299 - 2009 Pirate Advent Calendar - Day 20
Pirate Escape Pod

Oh, LEGO, how you toy with my Holiday Cheer.

Yesterday, you shocked and delighted me with a seemingly bonus minifigure. Today, you crush my spirits with a two-piece microset.

Oh, sure, it fits the overall Pirate theme. And both the oar and the wooden tub are uncommon parts.

But, come on. I paid how much to have this set shipped to me from the UK? And the best you can do, less than a week from Christmas Day, is two lousy pieces?

If anyone needs me, I'll be over in the corner, weeping quietly.

Row row row your crappy boat
gently down the stream
merrily merrily merrily merrily
this day is crap

in a tub boat
with white paddles
your calendar
made me sad
no minifig
nor building style
by today's stuff
next day best be good

(with many apologies to the fellows from Cream)
