2014 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar news


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?

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.

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 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.

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.

Dec 11 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar


From the LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar (#75023), today’s build is an AT-TE to pair with the Clone Trooper. It has a lot of parts and even some extra pieces. It is a decent representation of what is seen on-screen.

From the LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar (#75023), today’s minifig is a Clone Trooper. I hope he pairs with yesterday’s attack ship so tomorrow is not another accessory pack.

Dec 8 part II 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar


Today’s ship is a Republic Gunship. It is almost the same as the one from dec 15 2011. I promised a side by side comparison so here it is. I is the same ship with one difference the color of a single round stud. The 2013 (#75023) in front has a gray stud the 2011 (#7958) has a white stud. The instruction pic was different this year. There’s a better view of the gray brick that holds the build together.

de8_gunships   I guess you could expect duplicate ships after a while but just two years. I might not mind if it was dog fighter ship. A squadron of X-wings or Snow speeders  or the awesome AT-AT from last year, would be neat but this is a big ship. Plus we get another duplicate ship later this month. At least it one of my favorite ships of the saga.

It is Sunday so there is a new level for online game. The daily code unlocks new characters in the game. Click here for the game.

Today’s code is Y30c03 and unlocks a surprise character. Today’s build gives you a clue.

The blogging of the LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar (#75023) continues. Today’s gift is a Gun rack to go with yesterday’s rebel solider in Endor fatigues.

Who said it?

A gun rack… a gun rack. I don’t even own *a* gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack. What am I gonna do with a gun rack?
