LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2014 December 6


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.

Deceptive Vacation Advertising


classic_spaceman_on_moonHere is the classic Spaceman on lunar vacation.


Classic Spaceman minifig


September 1-14 LEGO VIP members can get a classic spaceman minifigure with a $99 purchase at LEGO Stores. I held off on buying a few sets till the first so I could get this set. The set includes a classic spaceman in a white outfit and a black robot. The set was a quick build since it is two figures. It comes in a nice box with a booklet. The booklet show the box art from the Space theme and some of the space minifigs.
If you are interested be quick. I have a feeling these guys won’t last long.

What else did I get today?
The 2014 Star Wars Advent Calendar, a Spider-man set, and a LEGO Ideas set. The Advent calendar features Santa Darth Vader. Yes! I’ve tried not to look at the box or online pictures too much but have glimpsed enough original trilogy stuff to make me happy. I will blog this calendar in December. I also picked up Spider-man verse Electro set and since it was in stock and the movie is in theaters this weekend, I got the Ghost Busters set. Hopefully I can build this later in the week.

SPOILERS: Reports from the London Toy Fair is the the 2014 LEGO Star Wars Advent will feature Santa Darth Vader! I hope this means an Original Trilogy focused calendar this December.


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.

Dec 22 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar


It’s just days away from Christmas. Today’s  advent calendar mini-fig is  young Boba Fett. Soon his dad will arrive.

lego boba fett

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 21 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar


Today’s advent calendar build is Jango Fett’s Slave-1. This ship appeared in the 2011 calendar but with the color scheme that appeared when Boba Fett piloted  it in The Empire Strikes back. Another reuse of a Ship but this time it is a cool ship and I really don’t think you could make a Jango Fett focused calendar without making his ship.

advent_dec21Comparison of the Boba Fett And Jango Fett versions. The color scheme is different. And a few of the bricks have been changed. Boba’s version(in the foreground) has a gray slope in the cockpit while Jango’s has two clear pieces. Boba’s version has solid tan wings while Jango’s are white and slotted.

slave-1 lego shipI have several toy versions of this ship. This is my fourth version in LEGO form.  Two are not pictured here one is minifig scale, the other is a miniship. It was part of a set with Obi-wan’s Jedi starfighter back in the early LEGO star wars days.

See what Han and Chewie thought of Boba’s Ship back in 2011.

Today’s advent calendar build is a Obi-wan’s Jedi Star Fighter. It’s a cool ship. advent_dec20


Dec 19 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar


Today’s  advent calendar build is a Separatist Shuttle. No Bike for yesterday’s Biker scout.

LEGO didn’t give him a bike so, the Biker went and found a bike himself.biker_scout


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.
