Taken from The Brothers Brick:Dear LEGO: We want 6299 LEGO Pirates Advent Calendar!:
"It’s that time of the year again, LEGO fans. In what I hope does not become an annual tradition, we’ve received confirmation from LEGO that this year’s non-City advent calendar, 6299 LEGO Pirates Advent Calendar, will not be made available in the United States."
Dear LEGO, WTF? I want my damn Pirate Advent Calendar!
