What can I say about the LEGO Star Wars 2011 Advent Calendar! It is a great set for the price and for the very first Star Wars Advent Calendar, you certainly get what you paid for. You get 9 minifigs, 11 different vehicles, as well as 4 objects. I really like the minifigs especially Santa Yoda and R2-Q5, which only came in the LEGO Death Star set. Most of the vehicle builds are pretty good replicas of their bigger brothers. You also get plenty of extra pieces for other builds.
Overall, I’d say buy this set even though Christmas is over. You might find it on sale in the upcoming weeks as stores try to get rid of their inventory. Whether you’re a collector or someone who likes LEGO in general, this set is a must buy. The value on this set will no doubt go up as time goes by and the Santa Yoda minifig will certainly hold it’s value on it’s own. As for next years advent calendar, there are pictures circulating around the web with Darth Maul as the main focus of the set. We’ll see if that stays true or not the coming months.
