2018 Star Wars LEGO Christmas Advent Calendar * Review


A quick review of the 2018 Star Wars Advent Calendar (75213).

My favorites were the Cloud City, Rathtar, IG-88, Tie-Fighter, Speeder bike, and Antoc Merrick. It was cool to see stuff from the animated LEGO show. But I really enjoyed the Rouge One stuff. I really like last years Rebels builds. The calendar was tilted towards Newer Star Wars films. Rose and the Guavian Death Gang Member were a cool part of the set. The limited Christmas themed builds was disappointing.  Those Christmas theme Star Wars builds were part of the fun of previous year’s sets. This year only had a tree and a snowman. Both were cool build but I wanted more.

What Christmas theme minifig would you like to see in 2019? Are you hoping LEGO will bring back the Christmas inspired figs and minibuilds?

I asked this a few years ago. I still want a Santa Solo. (Hoth Gear).  Another cool one would be Hera with stockings over her head tails. Seriously LEGO Santa Han or Elven Hera or Ashoka would be awesome.

 

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?

But the one fans of this blog may find interesting is 92 Card Back which is inspired by the vintage Kenner line.  It is designed after the figure card backs which showed all the figures in the toy line.

(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

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 hard 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?

But does he fetch?


The Alien Villainess and a gray walk their Brain.

Alien Villainess is from Series 8 (8833), Classic alien from Series 6 (8827) and the Brain is from the top of a hot sauce bottle.


The Aliens have landed.


alien villainess lego mini fig

Alien Villainess first of the Series 8 figs I found. It was the first bag I picked up. I felt around the bag and found the wedge shape of the dress and the head. I knew that it was the alien so I got it. She’s the only fig is this series that has the wedge dress so she should be easy to find.
They only had a few bags I tried some more and felt what I thought was the conquistador’s armor, turned out to be football player uniform. Both figs have a chest piece that slides over the torso. to id them look for the other accessories.


Jedi vs Bounty hunter



Darth Maul Returns. #6


The Phantom Menace has returned to the big screen, this time in 3D. Lucasfilm is promoting the re-release with packaging and advertising featuring Darth Maul. This spring he returns to the small screen in The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. Wait what? He was cut in two.

Here’s another Yoda Archives prediction of what the new Darth Maul will look like.

#6 Neimoidian Legs

Maybe he steals the legs from Neimoidian, Nute Gunray.


The Monster finds love.


Spring is in the air and the Monster has found Love.
