Great news for LEGO Star Wars collectors. The LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2016 is now available for purchase!
LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendars have been an annual tradition since 2011. Each year, a 24-set kit is released in early Fall. One micro-set is available each day of December leading up to Christmas. Each set is a surprise. Some sets are Christmas-themed; some are miniature versions of larger LEGO Star Wars vehicles; some are minifigures. Usually a minifigure or two is holiday themed. Last year it was C-3PO and R2-D2. This year, “Snowbacca” is the holiday figure.
- Vehicles this year include Slave I, a TIE Interceptor, AAT, T-16 Skyhopper, Sleigh, Republic Cruiser, Droid Gunship, Jedi Interceptor, Skiff and an Imperial Landing Craft
- This year’s set features 8 mini figures and a Battle Droid, including an exclusive holiday-themed mini figure (Snowbacca)
- Weapons include Luke Skywalker’s Light saber, 2 blaster pistols, 3 blasters and a snow caster
This year’s calendar has 282 pieces and currently retails for $39.99 on Amazon.
