LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar: Day 14

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!

Day 14 has given us a minikit of a B-wing. A single-pilot bomber designed for busting blockades, the B-wing was slower and less manoeuvrable than a Y-wing, but came with weaponry that one would usually expect to find on much larger ships. The B-wing was utilised by by the Rebellion and New Republic, having evolved from a prototype called the B6, which was created by the Mon Calamari engineer Quarrie. The B-wing was also noticeable for it’s gyro-stabilized cockpit, which allowed a pilot to keep a level horizon while the rest of the ship rotated around them. The most notable B-wing squadron in the Rebellion was Blade Squadron, who fought at the battles of Endor, Malastare, Kuat and Jakku. Alphabet Squadron—a 5-ship squadron that saw each pilot make use of a different starfighter model—included a B-wing, flown by Chass na Chadic.

What do you think of the minikit, and the advent calendar in general?
