Brick pedia entry for #9509 2013 star Wars advent calendar
(TPM) the Phantom Menace
(ATC) Attack of the Clones
(ROS) Return of the Sith
(ANH) Star Wars:A New Hope
(ESB) The Empire Strikes back
(RTJ) Return of the Jedi
My favorites were the AT-AT, Rebel Trooper(ANH), R2D2 and Santa Darth Maul. Least favorite was the MTT. The weapons should have been packed with the figures. A couple of ships were had to id. Plus too much Phantom Menace builds for me. But overall another fun advent calendar.
I hope LEGO makes another one next year. What Christmas theme minifig would you like to see in 2013? I like to see Queen Amidala from set #9499 Gungan Sub as a Christmas tree. Next year Hasbro packing features Yoda. Will the calendar be focused on Return of the Jedi for the 30th anniversary? or on one of the prequels that will be out in 3D next fall?
What was your favorite? What was you least favorite?
In 2009, Casey Pugh asked thousands of Internet users to remake “Star Wars: A New Hope” into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable.
Yoda and Chewbacca find Nute Gunray’s discarded hat. They revive an unconscious guard, but where is Nute?

Luke: [on first seeing the Millenium Falcon] What a piece of junk!
Han Solo: She’ll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid. I’ve made a lot of special modifications myself.
Today’s gift is a mini mouse droid. When I opened the door for day 14 the box was empty. I realized the item could be made from so of the extra pieces from an earlier day’s gift. There was an extra day in the pilot droid box, the bag must have slid in there during shipping. Chewie didn’t like the droid so he’s throwing it.
I know put a worm in it.
Bonus pic Chewie made a new friend* and they destroy yesterday’s gift.

Where’s Chewie’s bowcaster? I don’t know.
