Day 10 in the CITY Advent. That’s like…more than 9.

Day Ten: Man with Briefcase

2824 - LEGO 2010 CITY Advent - Day 10

Following the family theme, I suppose this is “Dad”. Or maybe “Crazy Uncle Charlie”, that lazy roustabout who drinks too much eggnog and then pukes in his briefcase.

For some strange reason Uncle Charlie comes with two hairpieces. I’m used to LEGO throwing in a duplicate of a sword, or of a cheese slope…but a wig? I’m not sure who’s running quality control this year, but I hope LEGO keeps them on. I can always use more dark brown tousled hairpieces.

Oh. I get it. Uncle Charlie is bald. And comes with two wigs. Right. Funny, LEGO. Real funny.

2824 - LEGO 2010 CITY Advent - Day 10 - Figure Back

This mini’s face is pretty common in the 2010 releases, but this is only the second time we’ve seen that sweater. (The first was in the CITY Transportation set.) It’s got dual side printing and is a nice generic addition to the LEGO clothes line.

Overall not a bad day in the Advent Calendar. I’m hoping tomorrow’s set is a bit more entertaining, though. It’s not fair to expect Uncle Charlie to provide all the holiday hi-jinx.
