LEGO 2005 Advent Calendar - Day 8

Today's Prize
Cecil's Flamethrower Set

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire.....

Well, that's as close to "Holiday Themed" I could come for today's mini-set of acetylene torches for Cecil McThievealot. There's a little cart to roll the gas tanks along on, the actual blowtorch, and two extra nozzles.

What this set does do right is establish that Cecil is the Axe Wielding Maniac's Evil Counterpart. Because AWM has a "Blue Flame" water cannon in his arsenal.

Sure enough, it seems while we were busy looking at Cecil and his safe, the AWM escaped from the paws of Ace The Bathound (somehow). While attempting to break into the safe, the AWM was able to get the drop on him .....almost!

"Drop that super soaker, lawman!" screams Cecil in a very odd falsetto. (Maybe he was inhaling the gas from the torch set?)

"Yer goin' down, pilgrim!" drawls the AWM!

The two adversaries face each other from across my desk, like two small LEGO mini-figures from a Holiday Advent Calendar. Which, in fact, they are. Funny how things like that happen.

If they had fingers, they'd be twitching, waiting for the other to draw. And then....
