Today’s item is a Y-wing. It’s made of a bunch of tiny bricks. The kind of pieces that are usually included as extras in sets. So you might have the parts to build more of these. Now it’s just a couple more days till  Santa Darth Vader arrives.

The December 18 LEGO Star Wars Advent minifig is General Carlist Rieekan. He was the leader of Echo Base on Hoth. Another nice looking figure. I like the focus on Hoth we’ve had in recent days.

Today’s item is a Rebel Pilot. Most likely Dak Ralter who was Luke snowspeeder Gunner in the Battle on Hoth. The LEGO Character Encyclopedia says the minifig has a unique blue Rebel Alliance markings on his helmet. This version has a dual sided head.

Today’s item is a Snow Speeder. It’s built slightly different from the minibuild from a previous year. It’s LEGO so there’s multiple ways to build the same thing.

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2014 December 14


Today’s item is a Gx-8 moisture vaporator from Luke’s homestead. So it is an accessory for yesterday’s Luke Skywalker minifig. While it’s not a cool ship, it is a scene builder. It’s not too exciting but has some great parts. A couple of the blocks with studs on each side and some tan tubes that I could have used for a thw Merry Clone-mas build. Those blocks are named after a LEGO employee.  I learned about them on the LEGO Creator Advent calendar. Which has a new video tip or animation everyday.

whta is the dec 14 star wars advent build?From Star Wars Wiki

A moisture vaporator was a relatively simple device used to harvest excess atmospheric humidity. It was ground-based and used on planets such as Tatooine.

 

What I really need is a droid that understands the binary language of moisture vaporators.”
“Vaporators? Sir, my first job was programming binary loadlifters—very similar to your vaporators in most respects.
―Owen Lars and C-3PO

Merry Clonemas!

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.

The December 7th build is an Imperial Snowtrooper. Finally another Trooper for the army. He fits well with the tripod laser cannon.

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

Today’s ship is a Droid Starfighter. It’s slightly different from the vulture droid of 2012.  I want to fleet build At-Ats and snowspeeders, not a droid army. Come on its a snow theme.
