“G’day Santa!”

“I would make an excellent Santa,” Sammy says!

My name is Claus. Santa Claus.

“My name is Claus. Santa Claus.”

Sammy kindly offers to give Santa a ride so he can deliver the Christmas gifts on time.

Gift delivery by snow mobile means less reindeer poo all over LEGOLAND.

There's less reindeer poo this way!

Earlier on, Santa tried riding a skateboard around LEGOLAND, but that was much too tiring.

There are a couple of things you don’t know about Mr Claus.

He loves to play with toilet paper (or snowballs).

“Your turn, Santa!”

And 11 months out of 12, he likes to go fishing.

Merry Christmas!

“Chester?”

Meanwhile, at Crook HQ…

Check this out, Bruce. I taught him myself!

Having this advent calendar is really making me realise how quickly Christmas is approaching. Apart from a couple of fresh ingredients I need for the salad I’ll be making for Christmas lunch with my family, I’ve done all my shopping. How about you – are you ready for Christmas?

I like the dial and wheel of the safe but I’d like it a lot more if it had a hinged opening.

It doesn’t take long for our friendly neighbourhood burglars to show up. Bruce enjoys a challenge and relishes the opportunity to show off his dexterity and finely tuned safe cracking skills.

Nice... and... easy

“Nice… and… easy…”

Sammy, on the other hand, prefers more direct methods.

Mate, just use THIS!

“Mate, just use THIS!”

Shhh, Sammy. Bruce is trying to concentrate.

LEGO City Advent Calendar – Day 18

Day 18: Sammy the burglar (crowbar specialist)

Sammy’s a man of simple pleasures.

Now that he’s out of prison, just give him a crowbar and a bucket of fried chicken and he’ll be the happiest bloke you’ve ever seen.

It took an unnecessary three days to get there but today we get the final bits to complete the police car. Well… it’s more like a buggy.

Kevin tuned the radio to his favourite station

“Last Christmas I gave you my heart… but the very next day you gave it away…”

Get out of my dreams...and into my car, beep beep, yeah!

“Get out of my dreams…and into my car, beep beep, yeah!”

I am ready for something new! No more multi-day builds, please! Something else Christmassy would be nice.

Yep. It’s as exciting as it sounds (not). The only good thing is knowing we should have a whole car tomorrow.

Sgt Tubbs: “This is why we NEVER purchase assets by instalment!”
Officer Kevin: “But we’re getting a free set of steak knives, Sir!”

This is why we NEVER purchase assets by instalment!

“This is why we NEVER purchase assets by instalment!”

At the rate things are going, that frown is NEVER coming off the Sarge’s face.

No lights, no radio, no damn cup holder

No lights, no radio, no damn cup holder

Later on, Kevin makes a shocking discovery! How will he explain this to the Sarge?

Uh-oh... The Sarge is gonna be SO mad!

“Uh-oh… The Sarge is gonna be SO mad!”

The skateboard burglar has struck again!

Tee hee hee!

“Tee hee hee!”

It’s all in a day’s work for Bruce. Time for a cuppa!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
