December 2019 Haul

It is already January 2020, and I have not yet posted my haul article for December 2019! However, there is a good reason for this. I still do not have all my December haul. One of my Christmas gifts has yet to arrive. My family ordered the City Ski Resort set (60203) for me, and it vanished in the mail. Luckily, the set is from Amazon, and they sent another one. It is just not here yet. In the meantime, I received a primo quality bag of fake Duplo bricks from the dollar store to tide me over. LOL.

My “Ski Resort” set from family, meant to tide me over until the real thing arrives,

Otherwise, I bought myself a couple of sets when they were on sale at Toys R Us. The deal on the Jurassic World T. rex Transport was good, 30% off. In my experience, many sets become a worthy deal at that discount point. At the same time, the Fun Fair people pack was 20% off. Sadly, it was not as good a deal at the T. rex Transport. In truth, I was expecting more. There was a buy-one-get-one-50%-off sale. I was expecting the people pack to be 50% off. However, it was not “regularly priced”, as per the ad. I bought it anyway because I wanted it, but felt disappointed all the same.

I got a good deal on the T. rex Transport.

For Christmas, I got the Ski Resort mentioned before. I also got the Ford Fiesta from Speed Champions. This is my second set from the theme, and I am looking forward to it. My city needs some more nice cars. Additionally, a friend also got me the Construction Loader and the greatest gift card of all, a LEGO® Store card.

Finally, I received a specially printed Minifigure. It represents Chris Hadfield and comes complete with a guitar. For those who do not know, Hadfield is a Canadian astronaut who was once commander of the International Space Station. He gained some fame playing a guitar in space. This figurine is actual LEGO® pieces, just with a non-official print job. It is a fun gift for a Canadian science/space enthusiast.
