LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2015 December 2 Bonus


It is advent calendar time. Here’s a bonus pic from today’s build. And it answer The question “How did Boba Fett escape the Sarlacc?

His High Exaltedness, the great Jabba the Hutt, has decreed that you are to be terminated immediately… You will therefore be taken to the Dune Sea and cast into the pit of Carkoon, the nesting place of the all-powerful Sarlacc… In its belly, you will find a new definition of pain and suffering, as you are slowly digested over a thousand years.

This limited edition figure depicts the first costume ever produced for Boba Fett. The all-white armor reflects the character’s initial concept as a “super trooper” before he evolved into the bounty hunter he is today. This prototype design was unveiled on June 28, 1978 in a screen test shot and is being worn by the assistant film editor for The Empire Strikes Back. In the 20-minute screen test, the sound designer describes the myriad weapons and features on this armored uniform for George Lucas and the Star Wars crew.

Boba Fett Prototype Armor Action Figure coming to Walgreens


I still get traffic from people searching for the mailaway prototype armor Boba Fett. The figure was offered in 2011-2012 as a premium. Fans could mail in UPCs and get a limited edition figure. If you missed it then your search may soon be over. Walgreen has announced an exclusive six-inch Black Series Boba Fett in the white armor. This is larger scale than the 2011 figure.

The figure is up for preorder and will not ship till October 15. Its says not sold in stores. I don’t know if that means till the release date or if it is an online exclusive entirely. They also will not ship it to certain states. Here is their full description.
Black series Boba Fett prototype Armor
Highly Articulated Figure Looks Like Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) & is Armed with a Blaster
Figure is Part of the First-Ever 6-Inch Series of Star Wars Figures
All-White Armor Reflects the Original Design for the Character
Figure Stands 6 Inches Tall
Figure Comes with Accessory

Before he puts on the familiar Mandalorian armor from the Star Wars saga, this notorious bounty hunter was initially envisioned as a “super trooper” in all-white armor. This special figure captures the beginning of a character that has become a legend who is both respected and feared across the galaxy … Boba Fett.

Re-create the biggest battles and missions in the Star Wars epic with figures from The Black Series! This highly articulated figure is part of Hasbro’s first-ever 6-inch Star Wars figure collection. He looks like Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) down to the last detail. His all-white armor is designed with pinpoint accuracy — it’s as if he just walked off the set of on2_220-1e of his biggest scenes. You’re going to need a bigger shelf for your Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) figure and the rest of the Black Series!

The past three years the have released a LEGO Star Wars ornament. The 2014 character is Boba Fett. I know I’ll be picking him up in July. Boba Fett retails for $14.95

boba-fett-root-1495qxi2593_1470_1Hallmark begins selling some of their ornaments in July. The following should be in store early in the month.

Rise of Lord Vader $19.95 Listen  Darth Vader one of my favorite characters but they pick his worse dialogue from the entire saga for the sound chip. If it was just an ornament without sound I might get it. I just don’t think I’ll pay $19.95 for one I don’t want to listen to.

the-rise-of-lord-vader-root-1995qxi2633_1470_1Cantina Band $34.95 Listen Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes star in this ornament. It’s cool and plays the cantina theme music. But expensive.

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?

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 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.
