Brick pedia entry for #75023 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-TE, Biker Scout, Santa Jango Fett,  Zam Wesell’s Ship, Slave 1, and the sleigh. Least favorite was the Solar sailor.  A couple of ships were hard to id. Dooku’s ship was even pictured sideways on the box. Plus too much Prequel builds for me. But overall another fun advent calendar. I kind of wish this was out last year. I went to a con that had the actors that played Jango Fett and Young Boba Fett. It would have been cool to have them sign a pic of their mini figs.

What Christmas theme minifig would you like to see in 2014? I like to see Queen Amidala from set #9499 Gungan Sub as a Christmas tree.  Or back to the Original Trilogy and an Empire Strikes Back theme with Santa Solo in red Hoth gear. Plus a Miss Santa Leia. Or Maybe a Snow Droid C3-PO or Gift wrapped Han Solo in Carbonite with a bow

What was your favorite? What was you least favorite?


Dec 22 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar

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 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.

Dec 14 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar


Today’s LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar build is a Space Kit-kat? At least tomorrow there is a new level for the Jango Fett Game. Plus a new advent calendar code to unlock something. Do you want the code posted? Like this post and I’ll add it to tomorrow’s post.advent_dec14


Dec 13 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar


Today’s Advent gift is another Battle Droid. Like I said last year if they are going to use the calendar for army building use Stormtroopers, or since it winter themed Snowtroopers and Hoth based rebels.  I’m guessing just like in the movies battle droids are cheaper to mass produce. Speaking of Hoth maybe next year Santa Han solo in Hoth gear and Miss Santa Leia. That would be cool. I still want to see Queen Amidala from set #9499 Gungan Sub as a Christmas tree.

Dec 11 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar


From the LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar (#75023), today’s build is an AT-TE to pair with the Clone Trooper. It has a lot of parts and even some extra pieces. It is a decent representation of what is seen on-screen.

Dec 10 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar


From the LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar (#75023), today’s minifig is a Clone Trooper. I hope he pairs with yesterday’s attack ship so tomorrow is not another accessory pack.

Dec 8 part II 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar


Today’s ship is a Republic Gunship. It is almost the same as the one from dec 15 2011. I promised a side by side comparison so here it is. I is the same ship with one difference the color of a single round stud. The 2013 (#75023) in front has a gray stud the 2011 (#7958) has a white stud. The instruction pic was different this year. There’s a better view of the gray brick that holds the build together.

de8_gunships   I guess you could expect duplicate ships after a while but just two years. I might not mind if it was dog fighter ship. A squadron of X-wings or Snow speeders  or the awesome AT-AT from last year, would be neat but this is a big ship. Plus we get another duplicate ship later this month. At least it one of my favorite ships of the saga.

It is Sunday so there is a new level for online game. The daily code unlocks new characters in the game. Click here for the game.

Today’s code is Y30c03 and unlocks a surprise character. Today’s build gives you a clue.

Dec 7 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar


The blogging of the LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar (#75023) continues. Today’s gift is a Gun rack to go with yesterday’s rebel solider in Endor fatigues.

Who said it?

A gun rack… a gun rack. I don’t even own *a* gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack. What am I gonna do with a gun rack?
