In which I am confronted with another set that is predominantly sand green in appearance; I need to reconsider ‘Sand Green September’ as a concept and take cues from Lord Business and the Australian Football League. I go to the movies and have mixed feelings but a predominantly positive experience about the LEGO Ninjago Movie. I build a set and am amazed at the number of relatively uncommon/recently released elements. If you thought you had never seen anything quite like the Green Ninja Dragon Mech before, it might just be because 25% of the 516 elements are fairly new! Now read on…
I recently spoke about the three sets which I am in the process of building, with sand green as a dominant colour. Sand Green September. A lofty idea, and I suspect almost unachievable, unless I take a cue from both Wyldstyle in the LEGO Movie (Freedom Friday, but still on a Tuesday), and the Australian Football League.
For those without a classical Victorian Education, the AFL (and Previously VFL) Grand Final is traditionally played on the last Saturday in September. Today in fact. This ‘One Day in September’ was immortalised in song by Mike Brady in the early 1980’s in the theme song for Channel 7’s Big League. Of course, occasionally, this one day in September occurs in October ( I am looking at you 2011, 2015 and 2016. I could look at 2010 in accusatory tones as well, except the Grand Final in October was a replay of the drawn match from the previous weekend. The AFL have taken steps to ensure this does not ever happen again…)
Yes… we are looking at the final instalment of Sand Green September being released in October. But I digress.
And I shall again.
