The run-up to Christmas has arrived and with it the all important Advent Calendar.
Once again, my Wife, the Saint, the Expert Gifter, the Gift-Giving Goddess has got me the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar and with it she has, once again, also given all of you dear readers 24 days of Blog Posts.
Day Eleven is that good old fashioned T-65 X-Wing. Given the colour scheme it could be based on either Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing or the New Republic Pilot Carson Teva (I’m going with Teva).
Out of the three Advent Calendars I have done, this is the second X-Wing I’ve got, the last one was in the 2019 Calendar based on Poe Dameron’s black and orange version.
At first glance I wasn’t sure about this mini-build, but once I’d built it my mind was changed. It’s a nice looking little set, it’s instantly recognisable and goes really, really well with…
… Day Twelve’s TIE Fighter mini-build, based on the Galactic Empire design rather than 2018’s First Order TIE Fighter.
This one, like the X-Wing is a cracking little build. The designers has managed to make this one feel less bulky that the 2018 version. The design is simple yet effective and makes great use out of minimal pieces.
I’m guessing this one is meant to represent Moff Gideon’s Outland TIE Fighter, but the small size doesn’t allow the level of detail or play features to make the Outland version with folding wings and landing gears, but in terms of playing, who cares.
Day thirteen’s set is a mystery to me now, other than my sneaking suspicion that it could be a mini-fig, if I had to hazard a guess I’d go with the Scout Trooper, but that’s just because I doubt Lego would put its two heavy hitting mini-figs (the Christmas Din Djarin or festive Grogu) this early in the month.
