Review

My favorites were Chewbacca cooking a Porg, Luke Skywalker, Poe’s X-wing, the Mynock, and Ahch-To. I think this is the third Chewbacca we’ve seen in the advent Calendars. One was a snowman version. But Chewie cooking a Porg is just funny. I love the micro location build like Ahch-To.
Like last year the wasn’t much holiday themed builds. I miss that the themed build help make the calendar special. See below for the snowman Chewbacca from 2016. I hope next year there are more. I also wish they would not show everything on the box. I want to be surprised by the build. It would be great if they would show a few and say 24 gifts. Maybe blot out the models, like Kenner did before Jedi was released. Also if they could make the online PDF instructions less spoiler. If you download it you can see all the builds.

What Christmas theme minifig would you like to see in 2020? 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. It would be real easy to make snowman BB-8,

What was your favorite? What was you least favorite?


Best Gift Ever!

(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

Yoda Chronicles Build At TRU May 4th


I was at Toys r US today, They had a poster for a Yoda Chronicles build on Saturday May the fourth from noon till 2. It’s a black mini star fighter. See if your store has a sign in the LEGO aisle. Not sure of the qualifications to get it. I’m guessing the regular TRU rules apply.

X-Wing Project Challenge Coin

(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-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?

Star Wars LEGO Advent Calendar 2012 * Dec 6


Today’s Advent gift is from The Phantom Menace, a mini figure of a Battle Droid, a security battle droid to be exact. There was one in last year calendar as well it was a pilot droid. (See it here) Yoda made short work of it. If they are going to use the calendar for army building I wish it would be Imperial, Rebel, or Clone Armies and not boring droids.This one didn’t even have a weapon. Although last year’s droid image is popular at conventions with the younger generation of fans.
