Oh hey, December has started (last Friday), so for those who have fancied LEGO’s 2017 Advent Calendar sets, this one’s for you. If there are any who have actually not purchased the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75184) set, then perhaps this feature might inspire you that it’s not yet too late to start.
The again, if the 75184 advent calendar isn’t in your buy list this year at all, then perhaps you can enjoy these photos of what lies in store for each day of December that comes until Christmas Eve on the 24th. Granted, it would’ve been accurate if this got started last Friday, but at least the inaugural countdown post will be meaty.
Day 1: The Ghost – The advent countdown by LEGO Star Wars this year starts with the main spaceship of the animated series Star Wars Rebels. The armed light freighter Ghost is the “baby” of Twi’lek Rebel leader Hera Syndulla, serving a mobile home base for the show’s small Rebel cell from Lothal. It was last seen chronologically in 2016’s Rogue One movie.
Day 2: Sabine Wren – For those who find Bobba Fett too antiheroic to root for, then here’s a Mandalorian fans of Star Wars Rebels can get behind: Sabine Wren. It does feel awesome to have someone from the bounty hunter world undoubtedly fighting the good fight.
Day 3: Phantom II – The Ghost is no warship by any stretch of the imagination. Thankfully it’s got the auxiliary Phantom II star-fighter shuttle. Much like the Ghost from Day 1, it’s a simple build that still matches the details of larger LEGO Star Wars sets well.
Day 4: Blaster Cannon – For when handheld blasters aren’t enough, there’s a tripod-mounted big gun the post-Empire Resistance can bring to bear against the Imperial remnants of the First Order. It’s sure to get some screen-time in The Last Jedi this December. (That minifigure’s for a later day.)
That about does it for now; watch this space for more lowdown on the other goodies left in the 24 Days of a LEGO Star Wars Christmas. The 2017 Advent Calendar (75184) is available now, along with similar mini-model-laden advent calendars from both the City and Friends lineups.
