Jurassic Park Playmobil Advent Calendar Day 1: Chaos Theory!

Mere moments ago I kicked off our frighteningly festive advent coverage by posting Day 1 of 2013's Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar. Now I know Lego is far more popular than Playmobil but trust me, you'd be a real Christmas pudding if you were foolish enough to rule Playmobil out! They create some very extravagant calendars, and although this one is not a new one (it was released a year or two ago as far as I know), it is mightily impressive. Each Playmobil calendar comes complete with a fold out diorama for displaying all your gifts. Check out this crazy noise...

Last year I did the Dragon Castle and erroneously claimed it was Game of Thrones themed. This year I'm going to erroneously claim that we are delving into the Jurassic Park Playmobil Advent Calendar!

Ready for a dino-mite adventure? Let's excavate behind Door Number 1...

And... it... is...

THIS dashing, raven-haired gentleman! Clearly he is some sort of professional archeologist, dinosaur expert, mathematician, chaos theorist, lady killer, T-Rex punching, testosterone leaking dynamo! And he has more pockets and pouches than a Rob Liefeld character!

Obviously he is going to be the hero of our epic dinosaur adventure, so let's call him Ian Goldblum because that's better than playing off Alan Grant or Sam Neill. The only thing that disappoints me about Mr. Goldblum here is that his shirt is too conservatively buttoned to his neck. What I liked best about Jeff Goldblum's Dr. Ian Malcolm was that his shirt had a lot of buttons but he only used two of them.

This is clearly very exciting as tomorrow a T-Rex might emerge from Door 2 and try to eat off his face! Anything can and will happen once we go beyond the giant gates of the haywire Jurassic Park. I FOR ONE CANNOT WAIT!

Now, it's tradition that we keep score here and judge which advent calendar is better. And, controversially, I'm going to start by calling today a draw. Both calendars provided us figures of hero characters and that's a wonderful way to kick off December. For those keeping track at home:

Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar: 1
Jurassic Park Playmobil Advent Calendar: 1

More tomorrow!
