Pirate Advent 2009: Day 3

Pirate Advent 2009: Day 3

6299 - 2009 Pirate Advent Calendar - Day 3
Parrot and Stand

Day three of the Pirate Advent continues to outfit our Captain with needed accessories. Sure, the treasure map is important, but no Pirate worth his salt would be caught without a Parrot at his side to spout "Pieces of Eight" at opportune moments.

This mini set would be at place in a CITY pet store just as much as in the Captain's cabin. The food cup is a nice touch that makes the stand more than just a coat rack with a bird on it.

Here's a question for everyone. Which do you prefer, the new "mixed red and green plastic" Parrot or the classic painted version below? (Thanks to Bricklink for the picture)

Personally, I'm a fan of the classic version.

I prefer the old ones. With the new ones, no two are identical. Which is not very LEGOy, IMHO.

I prefer the old ones too, but I like having both, I have a fairly decent assortment of various colors of "parrots" that I can pretend are other birds.

I like the new ones.

I'd like to see the face colors of the old one, and the blend body of the new one.

Currently the old one is better in my book.

refer old

Put me down for the old school birds as well. The new ones just look sloppy to me. I think that's because they don't have much of a face.

Half of my parrots are green/red and half are just plain red, I'm not sure where I got the latter from
