It is advent calendar time. Since 2011 I have blogged each day build. I will do it again this year. Today we have Jabba’s Sail Barge. It is a minimalistic build. When I first opened The door I was disappointed but once I built the thing it is pretty cool. Also it came with a transparent piece to use as stand for the ship. That a nice addition I hope all the ship have them.
The one panel instructions could be a little difficult for some builders. The longest piece and the block piece go on the bottom to build the base. Then build on top of that.

The big man has finally arrived. Darth Vader Claus is here. Merry Christmas! Merry Sithmas! This is one awesome looking minifig.
Today’s advent gift is father and son fireplace with lightsaber holders on the mantle. This might be the first time an item has had items for an Imperial and Rebel character. I added a few bricks behind the fire-place to make the flames stand out more.
You better watch cause Santa Darth Vader comes tomorrow.
Today’s advent gift is Tree-Two Dee-two. Another cool mini-fig.
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 19 LEGO Star Wars Advent gift is Vader Santa’s speeder bike. They added Santa’s bag and gift to the bike to mark it as a Christmas Sleigh.
The December 17 LEGO Star Wars Advent gift is another snow cannon.
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.
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.
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.“
