Christmas Eve has arrived at last, and we are treated to an excellent minifig in today's City window. It's Santa, of course, pictured here with yesterday's sleigh. As far as I can tell it's the same as the one in CMF series 8, except this one is made in a LEGO factory and not one in China. It's a vast improvement on the normal Santa that has been used in regular sets up until now.
My wife has been opening and building the Friends calendar this year and she was disappointed not to have a Santa in hers. Of course there isn't a Friends version of him, but who knows, maybe one year there will be.
Our three calendars are lined up side by side and this morning she said 'look at all the stuff in your calendars compared to mine' and she's right: the Friends calendar does seem to contain much less than the others. It has 40-odd pieces less, and I suspect many of the parts are tiny 1x1 plates or tiles, or other small things. Many days' windows contained just a couple or three pieces which is a pretty poor show, even if one of them is an animal or handbag or something.
All that remains then, is for me to thank Chris, the Capn', for his excellent reviews of the Star Wars calendar and to wish you all a Happy Christmas. As usual I hope all your presents rattle!
We currently own 5,802,026 sets between us, according to the home page: I wonder if it'll be up to 6 million by the end of the year? :)
