Signed, sealed and hopefully delivered.

I'm not seeing the reasoning here by TLG, it's not too late for them to change their minds though. :pir-sceptic:

The Castle Advent Calendar was awesome and I'm glad they made it available for a short time in the U.S. last year.  Is it too much to ask for them to do the same with the Pirate one?  Come on LEGO, we want the Pirates Advent Calendar!

The notorious squidman hereby adds his fear-inspiring name to the petition.  If TLC knows what's good for them, they'll take heed.

I am just shocked and amazed. I mean, you think maybe the people at Lego would have learned from past business mistakes. Seriously, what were they smoking down at the headquarters when they made this decision?

I've been waiting for this since rumors first spread.

Please Lego, release this in the US.

I sign this petition.

Dear LEGO group,

I really, really, really got lucky last year and got a castle advent calendar here in the States.  I don't have friends in other parts of the world who can buy me one and ship it through the very expensive international postal system.

Please have these available in my local Lego stores here in Virginia.  If they don't sell well, I promise I'll buy several.

I got all excited when I saw a chance to grab all of the expensive pirate minifigs an accessories for cheaper, until I saw the major disappointment!

If this doesn't show lego what we really want, I would appreciate if someone would be able to set something up with me to get one of these. It's one of the few lego sets I plan on getting this year.

Although I'm not planning on picking one up, I'm definitely on board for your petition.  It seems like such a shame to go through this yet again.  I purchased my castle advent calenders at a pretty big premium before LEGO made them available to North Americans.  I'd hate to see that happen to people again this year.

Good luck with the petition!

This is incredibly disappointing for LEGO fans in the United States.  I would be most interested to hear why it was not co-developed for the United States especially after last year's Castle Advent Calendar fiasco.  

I support this petition to bring the Pirate Advent Calendar over to the US.
