Christmas has come early indeed when LEGO made available its 2018 Advent Calendar sets in the usual representative franchises – City, Friends and Star Wars – as early as September. That alone is already well and good, but the advance LEGO-themed Holiday celebration just got even better thanks to a new sale. We know the LEGO Star Wars 2018 Advent Calendar (75213) is priced at $39.99 in shop.LEGO.com and $49.99 in Amazon. Well, Walmart has gotten the “drop” on both by offering the set at $34.99, 15 percent off. Now that this discount on a LEGO Advent Calendar is known, other retail chains might follow soon.
LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendars such as these have always tended to be a showcase for new franchise characters to be rendered as minifigures, as well as micro-builds of some already-released larger vehicle model sets. The 2018 set (75213) is no different with its selection:
- Open a door every day to reveal 24 different LEGO Star Wars themed gifts.
