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?

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 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.

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.
