LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018 – Day 9

It’s day nine of the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018, let’s see what’s behind today’s door….

It hasn’t come as a surprise that after two days of builds from The Phantom Menace that we’d move on to another film/TV series today — Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Today we get a mini build of General Grievous’ Starfighter made up of 19 pieces (with 5 spares). The thrust fin on the rear of the vehicle is missing, which is odd considering it was on the version from 2012’s Advent Calendar.

General Grievous’ Starfighter has been brought to life in a minifigure based set twice before in 2007 (#7656) and 2010 (#8095). The Starfighter was also been the subject of a polybag from The Clone Wars in 2009 (set #8033).

The list of builds from this year’s Advent Calendar now includes The Phantom Menace, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, Legends and LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures — not bad, and we’re just on day nine!

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