Where has this year gone?! It’s hard to believe that we’re already into December, but we really are into the final stretch of 2022, and with that comes something that I have been looking forward to for months: time to open the new LEGO Star Wars advent calendar. Last year was my first ever time getting the calendar, as one of my friends bought it for me, and I absolutely loved it, so had to get this year’s!
But rather than keep it to myself, I thought that this year it would be fun to chart this month’s gifts with you. So each day, I will be showing you the minikit that was behind that day’s door, allowing you to decide if the calendar is something you would consider purchasing in the future, but I will also then give a few details about the ship/item/character the kit is of.
So… let’s get going!
2022 Advent Calendar:
- LAAT/i gunship
- Clone trooper – 212ᵗʰ Attack Battalion – Phase I armor
- Droid tri-fighter
- Acclamator-class Republic assault ship
- B1 battle droid
- Omicron-class attack shuttle
- X-34 landspeeder
Day 7 has given us a minikit of a X-4 landspeeder. A civilian landspeeder capable of crossing harsh terrain and surviving well in desert climes, these landspeeders could be purchased with the cockpit either sealed or open-air. As they were designed as a civilian transport, they featured no armor or weapons as standard, however Rebels were known to use these speeders during the Galactic Civil War and retrofit them with blaster canons.
Luke Skywalker owned and maintained and X-34 when he lived on Tatooine, but sold it in Mos Eisley for 2000 credits (the recent release of the XP-38 had caused the value of X-34s to drop) to help pay for passage to Alderaan.
What do you think of the minikit, and the advent calendar in general?
Thanks for reading. May the Force be with you….
This year, I’m doing Movember a little different with my Movember Marathon.
