Yesterday we finally completed the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023) with Jango Fett being this year’s Santa. Like with other many other LEGO sets, there are hits and misses with the Advent Calendar.
There are a couple of builds and minifigures that I liked in the calendar such as the Republic Assault Ship, the AT-TE/Republic Dropship combo, Jedi Starfighter, and Jango’s Slave I. There are also quite a few army-builder minifigures including some fairly rare ones in the redesigned Scout Trooper and the Rebel Commando. Plus you can’t forget the return of young Boba Fett and Santa Jango Fett.
There weren’t that many things I didn’t like for this year but some little things get repetitive with the calendars. One of those things is the weapons racks. I feel the weapons should be included with the minifigures and those certain days could be used for other builds. Also those Battle Droids keep sneaking in the calendars. They may be great for others but they aren’t really for me.
After comparing this year’s calendar to previous years, in my opinion, it is better than last year but a notch lower than the 2011 version. In number of pieces, the 2013 version has 254 pieces which is right in between the previous years. You may able to find them discounted in stores in the near future if you want to get one.
We have now reached the end of the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023). Let’s see who the “surprise” is.
For the final day of this years Advent Calendar, we have Santa Jango Fett. His torso is of his Mandaorian armor but with more appropriate printing on both the front and back. The front has some fur lining on the top, a sprig of holly on the middle, and some small presents on the belt. The back of the torso also has some fur lining printing as well. Jango’s head is the same one as the regular version of the minifigure. His helmet is also the same blue version although I wish it was red instead to match the outfit. He also has a sack on his back with orange and lime presents represented by 1×2 tiles. Overall, Santa Jango Fett is a nice addition to the Star Wars Advent Calendar line joining Santa Yoda and Santa Darth Maul from the previous years. We’ll have a round-up post tomorrow of the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar and give a grade on it. Thank you for following us the past 24 days. Have a very Merry Christmas!
We’ve reached the next to the last day for the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023). What can we expect on Day 23?
Today, we start our final week of the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023). Let’s see what we have for today’s surprise.
The final stage of the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar minigame was unlocked today which is the stage of Tatooine. I’ve managed to complete the game with not much effort and after collecting all the ships in the game, you are able to unlock a secret bonus video that promotes the Microfighters sets. At the back end of the video (see below), there is a Sandtrooper patrol riding a Dewback. Does this mean there could be a dewback figure in an upcoming set? We shall see.
Overall, the game itself was pretty fun. It could pose a challenge to kids and maybe adults especially with the spots the items are located at the later stages. If you haven’t played it yet, I recommend taking some time and try it out.
