In Denmark, people love their Christmas. Danish starts celebrating Christmas since December 1st, and they celebrate it every day for the whole December, all the way up to the 24th. If you don’t know, LEGO is a Danish company.
So like what a loving-Christmas Danish company would do, LEGO releases a product that will let you enjoy every single day of December all the way until Christmas. One of those products is the LEGO Star Wars 75146 Advent Calendar Building Kit Features.
This is a special LEGO Star Wars 75146 Advent Calendar. When you open the box, you will see there are 24 unopened small boxes numbered 1 to 24 attached to a calendar agenda style. The calendar itself is printed with festive cartoon style Star Wars themed picture.
The calendar is a play mat that you can use to play with later. When you open the box which is also the calendar, you need to be very careful since it is also the play mat that you can use to play with all the pieces you get from the set.
The 24 boxes are sealed and hidden. You suppose to open one box every day to find hidden secret treasures in each box. It is different in every box. There are 282 pieces in total in the whole set. The set features 8 mini-figures, a Battle Droid, multiple vehicles and weapons. Among the 8 mini-figures, there is one exclusive holiday-themed, Star Wars themed piece of mini-figure in the holiday set.
The vehicles in the set include Vehicles include Slave I, a TIE Interceptor, T-16 Skyhopper, Sleigh, Jedi Interceptor, Skiff, Republic Cruiser, AAT, Droid Gunship and an Imperial Landing Craft. The set also features a whoopee set of weapons including Luke Skywalker's Light saber, blaster pistols, blasters and a snow caster.
Every year, the special Star Wars LEGO calendar is always highly rated and sold out in a quick moment in December. So serious collector would always know to get the set early. If you are interested in getting one, get it early as well. Compared to the other premium special Star Wars theme set, this Christmas calendar is much more affordable and it does have a special exclusive piece. If you are a serious LEGO collector or a Star Wars true fan, you should not miss out on the Star War Calendar each year.
However, if there is a downside to this set, it would be that among the 282 pieces, there are only 8 mini-figures. The set itself is about $40, which his not too expensive for a LEGO set. Yet, the price is a bit over board for only 282 pieces. If you are a LEGO enthusiast, you know that 280 pieces are not a lot for a set. The price is not only for the LEGO pieces like a normal set but also for the copyright for the Star Wars series. The price spikes up because of that.
So on one side, the price can be a bit expensive for what you can get from a LEGO set. On the other hand, there is an exclusive mini-figure in the set and you get to enjoy a special way of enjoying Christmas and opening each single box every day. The upside may be worth the money.
