LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018 – Day 18

It’s day eighteen of the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018, and we’re already three-quarters of the way through this year’s calendar….

Behind today’s door is a mini-build of a First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter from The Force Awakens. The First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter appeared in minifigure form in 2015 (set #75101), and also as a forty-one piece polybag in the same year (set #30276). The vehicle here is made up of just twelve pieces and whilst not as comprehensive as the version found in the polybag, it looks great and is easily recognisable.

After eighteen days the list of builds from this year’s Advent Calendar now includes The Phantom Menace, Revenge of the Sith, The Clone Wars, Rebels, Rogue One, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, Legends and LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. I hope in the last six days we’ll see builds from some of the missing films.

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