It’s day twenty-four, and the last day of the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar for 2018.
Behind todays’ door is a Snowman wearing a Blue Squadron Helmet, missing from yesterday’s exclusive minifigure of General Antoc Merrick from Rogue One. The Snowman sits on a simple base and features a printed minifigure head. It’s a change from what we’ve had in previous years and I would’ve preferred a Star Wars character that was themed for the holidays. In previous years we’ve had Yoda, Darth Maul, Chewbacca and others — this year they could’ve done something with a Porg, BB-8, or even a festive looking Kylo Ren — a missed opportunity perhaps.
After twenty-four days here’s the list of films/TV series featured in this year’s Advent Calendar The Phantom Menace, Revenge of the Sith, The Clone Wars, Rebels, Rogue One, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, Legends and LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. The only films missing is Attack of the Clones and Solo: A Star Wars Story — we can understand the latter but we’re surprised by the former. To include builds from such a wide range of films/TV series is impressive and we think the LGEO Star Wars team have done a great job with this year’s calendar, although we feel strongly that the gun rack from day 14 should NOT have been included. Let us know what you think on social media.
