For Day 15, we have another micro scale ship to build. It is the Republic Attack Gunship. Featured in Episode 2: The Clone Wars, it is a pretty accurate ship like many of the other ships in the Advent Calendar. The red and green pieces make the ship pop out more than if it contained only white pieces. The build contains 14 pieces with 3 extras.
This is one of those days where LEGO didn’t know what else to put in the Star Wars Advent Calendar. As with the R2-Q5 from Day 13, the Mouse Droid was included with the Death Star (10188) and the Imperial Star Destroyer (6211). It is made of 9 pieces and you really don’t need instructions to build it. A filler build that should’ve been left out I think.
Originally included with the more expensive LEGO Star Wars sets such as the Death Star (10188) and the Imperial Star Destroyer (6211), the R2-Q5 droid minifig is now included in the 2011 Star Wars Advent Calendar. The coloring on this bad boy is awesome with the gold markings contrasting the black. I would definitely pick up another one of these droids separately to add to my collection.
For Day 12 of the Star Wars 2011 Advent Calendar, we have a snowspeeder. This is a pretty solid for something this scale. It contains 18 pieces and the main colors are white and gray. A nice addition to the advent calendar.
For Day 11, we get another minifig, the Pilot Battle Droid. It takes 6 pieces to make. What makes this droid cool is that it has the blue coloring for the torso. You also get 2 extra arms included in the package. So far, we’re up to #4 in terms of minifigs in the Star Wars 2011 Advent Calendar.
For Day 10 of the LEGO Star Wars 2100 Advent Calendar, we get the Imperial Shuttle. It only takes 8 pieces to create this replica. It can be displayed either in flight mode or landing mode although you might need a stand for it sit right in flight mode as it is top heavy. Overall, I think the Imperial Shuttle is a nice ship to be added to the calendar.
On Day 9, we get the X-wing starfighter. It contains 24 pieces and looks similar to the movies. I love the coloring of the bricks LEGO used to make it. An easy build and a great addition to your collection.
