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.
Nineteen is a number that sticks out to me quite regularly, it’s all down to it being a major part of Stephen King’s ‘Dark Tower’ series, which I am a big fan of. So for some reason it never occurred on me that maybe, just maybe, on Day Nineteen we’d get a pretty major set in the Advent Calendar.
We got Slave 1. I’m a fool.
This is a very nice mini-build, for the size and the number of pieces it’s surprisingly accurate. It even includes rotating wings for flight and landing mode. The colour scheme is also very spot-on and the green and grey look striking together.
As accurate and well designed, it does feel a bit flimsy when being held, but given the small size and limited piece count it’s not a huge issue for collectors putting it on display, but it could be an issue for younger builders playing with the model. Luckily it’s easy enough to put back together.
Well now it feels like it’s anyone’s gamble when it comes to what’s behind tomorrow’s door. Only time will tell on this one.
Thank you for visiting My Star Wars Life Debt.
