LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar: Day 8

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!


LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 20222022 Advent Calendar:

  1. LAAT/i gunship
  2. Clone trooper – 212ᵗʰ Attack Battalion – Phase I armor
  3. Droid tri-fighter
  4. Acclamator-class Republic assault ship
  5. B1 battle droid
  6. Omicron-class attack shuttle
  7. X-34 landspeeder
  8. T-16 skyhopper

Day 8 has given us a minikit of a T-16 skyhopper. A high-performance airspeeder, the T-16 was a stable and reliable transport, which led to many youths using the model for early pilot training. As a child, Luke Skywalker was given a model of a T-16 by Ben Kenobi. He would later become the owner of a T-16 while living with his aunt and uncle, which he would use to go flying through Beggar’s Canyon and bullseyeing womp rats with his friends,including Biggs Darklighter.
