Pirate Advent 2009: Day 21

Pirate Advent 2009: Day 21

6299 - 2009 Pirate Advent Calendar - Day 21

I'll admit it. When I first saw the box art for the Pirate Advent calendar I thought there was a slim chance we'd be getting one of the super-deluxe sharks from the Agents line.

I knew it probably wouldn't happen - there's no way LEGO could cram the larger shark into the standard Advent spot...but still, I hoped.

Today's door isn't a bad consolation prize, though. Sure, it's a "Sawfish" and not a shark, but this particular fish hasn't been seen since 2002, cast in black plastic in an Agents Alpha Team set. If you wanted things in a more nautical grey, you had to go all the way back to 1997 when it was a common feature in town Diver sets. With the color change from old-grey to new dark bley, this makes today's cretaure a one-of-a-kind accessory.

Sounds like a win to me.

I guess you prefer to put similar themes under one name given what you called an "Agents" set. And I also recall you using "Mission to MArs" for both of Lego's Mars-related sets.

That ain't no damned swordfish, Boyo.


This summer... Brick Blockhead is

Meh. Yeah, I suppose I do lump the rehash themes together. At least I haven't crossed Castle with Beliville yet.
