Finally, Lego listen to the fans and released the Star Wars Advent Calendar (#7958) for this Christmas Season. There isn’t much very Christmas about this set. It is essentially 24 different little Star Wars figures or vehicles. The most Christmas in here is a Yoda dressed up like Santa (good have you been?). On the other hand, the play and repeat play value of this set is fantastic. All those little figures can fight and make all kinds of really cool noises (you know the kind from your mouth, bzzzzzz, pew pew, bam – there are no electronics that make noise).
The box is the same size as previous years. The cardboard is not very rugged; it’s pretty standard Lego box issue. I’ve posted some pictures of the box and tray. It’s possible some of the doors will get torn when opening them. I imagine if somebody was really careful, they could put the toys back and save it for next year. But then they’d miss out on a year of playing with the toys. Every Lego Maniac will love this calendar. I am happy.
If you’re interested, here are the contents of this set (if you’re just collecting minifigs or whatever):
Pilot Battle Droid
Yoda (Santa Suit)
Boba Fett’s Slave I
Homing Spider Droid
