The December 11th gift is a Tie-Fighter pilot to accompany yesterday’s Tie-fighter. Great minifig. One of my favorites costumes from the entire Saga. I need an army of these. Please send me some. 🙂

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2014 December 10


The December 10th build is a Tie-Fighter. A cool ship from the original trilogy. It’s an improvement over the 2011 version. Both versions use a SNOT (studs not on top) brick for the cockpit of the ship. But the older one just added tiles to the side. Today’s model has bigger panels and looks more like Tie Fighter.

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2014 December 7


The December 7th build is a tri-pod laser cannon converted into a  snow ball cannon. If you are having trouble see the small build instructions, look on the box art. The door for day one, just above today’s door, has a picture of the completed cannon. It’s Sunday so there’s new online content at LEGO.com

Dec 24 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar


You better watch out Santa Jango Fett is coming to town! There is nice torso printing on this one. The Mandalorian looks great in red with a little white collar and some holly. The helmet is still in Jango’s colors not red so you know it’s Jango and not Boba.
Why would they make that distinction? Did they just leave a hint as to how Santa travels the world in one night? and why you see Santas in every mall? Is Santa the genetic material for a clone army? Is that how he gets elves?

Dec 23 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar


Today’s advent calendar build is Santa Jango Fett’s Sleigh. This is a really nice mini build. It’s one of my favorites from the calendar. That’s big considering I’m such a Star wars fan. It was easy to build and includes Jango’s Jet pack. Tomorrow Santa Jango Fett Arrives.

It’s just days away from Christmas. Today’s  advent calendar mini-fig is  young Boba Fett. Soon his dad will arrive.

It is Sunday which means new content for the online game. The advent calendar code for December 22 is  Y12C34 and unlocks a surprise character for the game. Click here for the game.

In blog news this December is now my third highest trafficked month ever.  It might become second before Christmas. If it does I’ll post a special holiday image.


Dec 21 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar


Today’s advent calendar build is Jango Fett’s Slave-1. This ship appeared in the 2011 calendar but with the color scheme that appeared when Boba Fett piloted  it in The Empire Strikes back. Another reuse of a Ship but this time it is a cool ship and I really don’t think you could make a Jango Fett focused calendar without making his ship.

advent_dec21Comparison of the Boba Fett And Jango Fett versions. The color scheme is different. And a few of the bricks have been changed. Boba’s version(in the foreground) has a gray slope in the cockpit while Jango’s has two clear pieces. Boba’s version has solid tan wings while Jango’s are white and slotted.

slave-1 lego shipI have several toy versions of this ship. This is my fourth version in LEGO form.  Two are not pictured here one is minifig scale, the other is a miniship. It was part of a set with Obi-wan’s Jedi starfighter back in the early LEGO star wars days.

See what Han and Chewie thought of Boba’s Ship back in 2011.

LEGO didn’t give him a bike so, the Biker went and found a bike himself.biker_scout


Dec 18 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar


Today’s  advent calendar mini-fig is a Bike Scout. Finally more Return of the Jedi love. I love the mini helmets on all the LEGO figs they make the figure. I could only hope that tomorrow would be a wee mini bike for him. I’m pretty sure it’s not. I don’t recall seeing one on the cover.

There are reports of the LEGO Movie mini figs being spotted at Targets. I have seen any but my Target does have two boxes of series nine minifigs. I still need a chicken suit guy. But I wasn’t fighting the crowds for one fig they  didn’t have the items I needed to finish my Christmas shopping.
