Samuel Thomas Johnson – LEGO City Advent Calendar Designer
"My sisters and I had an Advent Calendar every year, and we still continue to have one every year. We’re just big kids really, and I was VERY excited to work on the 2012 LEGO Advent Calendar! Before I got my job as a LEGO Designer, I was working in a toy shop, so I had seen how excited kids get when they see the LEGO Advent Calendars in stores. It is an honor to have my designs in the 2012 calendar. One of our new product lines for LEGO City in 2012 is Forest Fire, so we thought that it would be a great opportunity to add more play scenes. This set is a great way to get more Forest Fire Fighter Minifigures! You will also find that this is the first model that includes yellow skis for your figures to race around in the snow this winter."
