All of my social media has had a huge Star Wars overload lately. I am very sorry if you don’t like/care for Star Wars, and that is all I’ve clogged your timelines with.
This month has been a very huge month for Star Wars, and I celebrated this with a Lego Star Wars advent calendar! I bought this from firebox.com, but I know that you could buy these in store at the Lego store! This cost me £30.
The main reason I’m doing this post full of what I got in it is that I bought a vinyl marble sheet and wanted to try taking pictures on it for the first time, it went…okay. My camera was being temperamental and I’m seeing that a lot of these came out rather dark, and one came out SO BRIGHT.
Oh well, it’s all a learning curve.
Day 1- Khetanna (Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge)
Day 2 – Sarlacc Pit
Day 3 – Bomb Disposal Droid sold by the Jawa’s (supposedly, this one confused me a bit)
Day 4 – Jawa
Day 5 – Jawa’s Sandcrawler
Day 6 – Ewok Weapons Post
Day 7 – Ewok Village
Day 8 – Ewok
Day 9 – Ewok Catapult (which actually works!)
Day 10 – Stormtrooper
Day 11 – Star Destroyer
Day 12 – Blaster Rack
Day 13 – IG-88
Day 14 – Millennium Falcon
Day 15 – Rebel Mounted Blaster (which moves and fires!)
Day 16 – Star Wing Fighter
Day 17 – Rebel Soldier on Hoth
Day 18 – AT-AT
Day 19 – Rebel’s Anti-Aircraft Defense on Hoth
Day 20 – Imperial Droid
Day 21 – Blaster…of some sorts.
Day 22 – Christmas R2-D2, who can be de-christmasified
Day 23 – Sleigh
Day 24 – Christmas C3PO
And the final three days form a little diorama!
I have to give a little shoutout to Lego’s customer service, as I received a misprinted calendar which said on the side it included a Darth Vader figure, however the calendar didn’t! I e-mailed and asked about it, and even though having a Vader in the calendar was scrapped, they’re sending me one anyway. Lego, you are too kind.
Now could you send me Poe Dameron’s X Wing and the new Millennium Falcon sets for free?
My favourite pieces have to be the Falcon and the Stormtrooper! I definitely want one of these next year.
I hope you had a great festive period, and a Happy New Year to you too!
