LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018 – Day 4

Let’s see what Day 4 of the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018 brings….

Today we head for Legends (Expanded Universe) for a mini build of a vehicle that probably would’ve appeared in The Clone Wars era, it’s the TX-130 Saber-class Fighter Tank. The Fighter Tank has appeared twice previously in LEGO form, in 2008 (set #7679) and 2017 (set #75182).

The bag contains 21 pieces but only 15 are used in the build. Its small design doesn’t encompass all the details of the Tank and that may make it less recognisable. Whilst the colours mostly work, the transparent bricks don’t work well here.

Four days in and we’ve had sets/minifigures from A New Hope, The Last Jedi, The Freemaker Adventures, and Legends. Whilst this certainly goes to ensure there’s something for everyone, I think having only a couple of themes running through the calendar may have proved better (as done in previous years).

Join us at 5:01pm GMT tomorrow for a look behind door 5.
