Does the name come from “Santa”? That would help explain why he’s wearing red.

Okay, I'm not the only one getting deja vu either, that's a relief.

@Your_Future_President I actually wish it was a la Clikits, but at least we'll be getting some one a day this December. We'll all get our fix!

I recognize that face...

If you want to see something weird, search at this site for "CPW Santis"

And here, I guess, is the American version of the same set...

It seems weird to me, that Lego gave them different numbers and everything just because one had a few cards in and the other didn't. In Bionicle's early years, some versions of several of the canister-size sets had mini CD-ROM disks in them, while other versions didn't; but with those, there was no difference in the set numbering - the only difference was the disk's presence (or lack thereof).

I guess I just don't get why KKII didn't do the same thing, number the sets the same regardless of the presence of cards or not.

I did have this set. My main complaint then is the same as it is now--not a whole lot of it is really LEGO.

I really never did do anything with the game cards. Even LEGO Club magazine included 2-3 with each issue.

Oh getting the guy twice like this is super weird. Not even a different version of Santis, the OG one again
