We are already on Day 4 of the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023) and 1/6 of way done so far. What shall we expect under the panel today?
December is going by pretty fast and we are already in Day 3 of the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023). What can be hidden behind the panel featuring printing of Count Dooku’s Solar Sailer?
While working on our LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar post, I was surfing the advent calendar minisite and in the prizes tab, I found a poster for the new 2014 LEGO Star Wars Microfighters. There’s been a debate in the LEGO community on the subtheme. Some people like it, others don’t. For me, the Microfighters are the 2014 Star Wars sets I’m most excited for. What are your guys’ thoughts on them and will you be picking any of them up?
It is December and as a tradition here at The Brick Fan, we will be doing the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar (75023). Each day, we will be opening a panel to see what we will be getting inside. At the end of the calendar, we will be comparing this year’s version to 2011, and 2012. The set contains 254 pieces and retails for $39.99 but you can easily find it on sale at various retailers.
This year, the LEGO Star Wars minisite has an advent calendar game that you can play using various characters. You start off playing with Jango Fett in a Santa costume but each Sunday of the month, you get a code to enter to unlock a new character to play with. The objective of the game is to reach the Christmas tree at the end of the stage while collecting a number of Star Wars vehicles. If you collect all the items in the stage, it looks like you can unlock some short videos.
The official images of the final two 2014 LEGO Star Wars sets have been revealed by Brickshop Holland, the Coruscant Police Gunship (75046) and the Droid Tri-Fighter (75044). The Coruscant Police Gunship was seen in the last episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 5 and includes 4 minifigures: Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, and two Shock Troopers. The Droid Tri-Fighter is a remake of the 2014 version (8086) and includes 4 minifigures as well: Chancellor Palpatine, Security Battle Droid, Battle Droid, and Buzz Droid.
I have also updated our main page of the 2014 Star Wars sets with the images.
Clone Turbo Tank (75028) – Clone Trooper (new)
The official images of the LEGO Star Wars Microfighters have surfaced courtesy of Brickshop Holland. These new “chibi-style” vehicles are set to replace the current LEGO Star Wars Planet sets. Each set has their own pilot minifigure to sit atop of the vehicle. The Microfighters sets are tentatively priced at $9.99 each and will be available late 2013/early 2014.
