Pirate Advent 2009: Day 7

Pirate Advent 2009: Day 7

6299 - 2009 Pirate Advent Calendar - Day 7
Pirate Lass with Spyglass

Last years Castle Advent gave us a lot of rare mini-figure designs - it seems that we can look forward to the same treatment from the Pirates this year. At the time of this writing, the only other place you can acquire this figure is in a Toys R Us limited-edition set: Shipwreck Hideout. Or, if you're near a LEGO store, you might spot her in the Pirate Tic-Tac-Toe set. But that's it.
(Her corset-top appeared in the LEGO exclusive Medieval Market Village set, too. Not that I'm complaining about that.)

LEGO still has it's share of Princesses-in-Peril in minifigure form, but it's nice to see them giving some gender-diversity to their heroes as well. There's no doubt in my mind this tough-as-nails Pirate would kick your butt if she ever heard you calling her a wench.

Now that's a role model.

Man I really wish this set had been released stateside.

that's about as hot as mini-figs get, right there. Yowza.

I got Shipwreck Hideout from the Lego Shop@Home.

According to my favourite game, she is called Mrs. Patch.
