Star Wars Advent Calendar

Other sites have been showing pictures of this for some time, but I thought I'd wait until some official images became available. Skyhopper sent us a link to a German shop that has the set listed together with some hi-res pictures.

And in related news, CDC in Slovenia says that the City Advent calendar is on the shelves already, and it's not even July yet!

Thanks for the official images, Huw.

Some lovely little ships, but what a bizarre selection of figures; it's almost as if LEGO had a surplus of certain minifigs and decided to throw them in. Surely this was crying out for more of the 'classic' figs - Vader. R2-D2, threepio, Leia etc..

Still a 'must buy' for fans, though.....

I for one am glad that they are including a Clone Pilot, they are quite hard to get your hands on and tend to only appear in expensive sets, hopefully if these flood the marketplace then people will start selling them for more reasonable prices. Aside from the Minifigures I quite like the look of most of the ships, particularly the X-Wing.

Oh, I'm buying this for sure. A bunch of cute little ships and vehicles and an interesting selection of minifigs. And not forgetting - a Father Christmas Yoda. I'm buying this as soon as it's available.

(I really wish LEGO hadn't cancelled the Star Wars Mini line. They were some of my favourite sets - the Minis. Very cute and swooshable.)

I LOVE the A-wing in this set! I made one myself when I thought there was no hope in them making a mini one, and yet here it is! Yay!

Really? Zev Sanesca? Why? I have like three of him. All the same. I mean he was in a battle pack! Come on!

The mini Slave 1 and the x-mas Yoda look so cool! I want this.

NICE WILL BUY. Since the normal advent calendar cost $35 I am guessing could run as high as $45. (tru price of $48ish?)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow that looks pretty cool! I wasn't thrilled with the mini's at first, but now I am really looking forward to this! Maybe Lego will stop at the price of 35$, as the prices have been going up 5$ a year, and this is a SW set. I agree that the selection of fig's is a bit strange, (not that I don't want them, I've been waiting for years for a inexpensive set with Chewbacca)
P.S. These usually come out in July???

FORTY DOLLARS FOR LESS THAN 300 PIECES?! Dang, I was hoping for maybe twenty! Forty dollars is ridiculous!

Gravatar
By in United States,

for those who have not ever done the advent calendar before. It is very cool. I would recommend it as a gift from a significant-other of a lego collector. Or if you have kids. Kids love to find out what new thing they can build on each of the days through the holidays. It is a gift that keeps itself new exciting for 25 days.

40$ is actually a good price for an advent calandar. Especially a theme.

Gravatar
By in United States,

40 DOLLARS?!?! 'Sigh' Guess no advent calender for me this year. At this rate of 5$ increase a year, in 2023 these will be 100$! Wait, SW is a licensed theme so maybe the city advent calender will stay at 35$?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

$50? That's way too high, even for a licensed theme. $40, maybe, but $50 is too high. I wanted too get it, but I don't know if my budget stretches that far, with all these new sets that I want to get now.

Gravatar
By in United States,

$40 bucks... 35 cause it is an advent calendar (which is already a rip) and then tack on another 5-10 USD due to it being SW... ...Pass.

By in United Kingdom,

Love it - worth every penny!

I know technically the advent calendar has and should only have 24 doors to open, but in recent years we've become spoilt at home with our 25-door choccie calendars. What could I use for Day 25? I know! An SSD!!!

By in United States,

Am I the only one that thinks this is horrible?? Mind you I'm bias cause I don't collect SW, and never had an advent, but I really want to own one, and been looking for an excuse to get SW sets, but this doesn't cut it. The yoda, yea he's pretty cool, and pilot clone trooper..I guess if you guys say he's rare I'll accept that and want him too. But the rest are bleh, and the mini scale ships? not my thing, I'd rather have a buildable turret, (as in the ones the snow troopers use) or maybe like a buildable throne for yoda or a vader if they had one. If there is 24 elements I'd like to see the rest, maybe they got more appealing figs, although I doubt it. Seems logical to put the most appealing figs on the box to get the most buyers. This looks bad. I'm passing.

And 40 bucks? get real.

@yys4u: I rarely collect Star Wars too, I'm in your boat. (Not literally, that would be awkward) But the minis were at one point sets that people wanted to get. Plus, if this is the same as previous advent calanders, there will be 9 minifigs. We still have 3 minifigs we don't know yet, plus the possiblility of more. Although, actually I agree with you. There isn't enough stuff (bricks, parts, minifigs, cupcakes) to pass, although I may try to buy a few figs later.

By in United States,

The screen shots show the 24 sets in the calendar, so I am not sure what people are meaning by there is more.. I do not believe so, what you see is what you get, and again for the price that it will most likely cost? It is not really worth it IMO

This calendar looks pretty good, Iam surprised they didn't start doing this earlier. Some of the mini ships are quite awesome e.g mini slave I,, Mini x wing and Y wing plus the yoda santa is cool as well. I expect the price in the uk will probably be around £25.99- £30.99

By in United States,

I like it. Guy I want really is Chewie. Never had one before.
Pilot would be good
The Stormtrooper pilot looks cool.
I'd really want to have a Black colored Droid.
Yoda Santa looks fine, not bad, you even get the lightsaber.
The minis looks all awesome

I dont get why the yoda is considered cool. LOL. i know its an opinion thing. I not sure if I want this. I like the mini models but wish there were better figs in it.

I rather have a kingdoms again. heck i rather have a space themed one.

@ moloko: Santa Yoda is a nod to the Official Lucasfilm Christmas card featuring Yoda dressed as Santa. It was also made into an action figure IIRC.

@vader1701: What's the USD equivalent?
@moloko: The figs are excellent!
@flump6523:Advent's number of days varies, so it would be good if their were 25 doors, but, oh well.
