Three more days left in the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar and on Day 21, we get the very recognizable Millennium Falcon. The build consists of 13 pieces and looks awesome. LEGO did a great job on this mini-build. Hopefully, the final couple of builds are as good as this one.
If there is major disappointment in the LEGO Star Wars 2011 Advent Calendar, this is it. Any other disappointments before today, forget I said it. The Tie Fighter looks like two black plates stuck on the side of a gray brick. Sure it looks like it, but looks like a very lazy build. It contains 7 pieces and you don’t need the diagram to make it.
In this 10 piece build, we get a weapons rack. As part of the build, we get a pair of binoculars, two blasters, and a green lightsaber. Hmm, green lightsaber. Wonder who that’s for?
If you’re been wanting to get your hands on the LEGO Star Wars Imperial Shuttle (10212), then now is the time. Amazon.com is having it on sale for $181.99. That is 30% off the MSRP!! It is no doubt a fantastic deal especially for the amount of pieces you get for the set. It contains 2503 pieces which comes out to $0.07/piece. Amazing!! Not sure why the price fluctuates so much with this one. A couple of days ago, it was at $204.99, and now it’s dropped another $23. Why not treat yourself and your family to this great set. Plus take advantage of the FREE Super Saver Shipping and you might even get it before Christmas arrives. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can get it in 2 days. Jump on this deal before the price changes again!!
*EDIT 12/17/11* – The price for the set now has risen to $189.99. It’s still a $70 savings of the retail price.
*EDIT 12/19/11* – Looks like the price is back up to $218.99 now. Still a ok deal but better to wait and see if Amazon does another sale in the future.
*EDIT 12/21/11* – Well the price is down to $209.00 as of today. As you can see, the pricing on this set is very unstable.
For today, we get another minifig and not just any minifig. The Clone Pilot makes an appearance in the LEGO Star Wars 2011 Advent Calendar. It has 6 pieces and the head is all black. Nothing to complain about here. Just another minifig to add to your army of troopers.
