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
- T-16 skyhopper
- Moisture vaporator
- V-35 courier
- Darth Vader
- Fortress Vader (sandcastle)
- TIE Interceptor
Day 15 has given us a minikit of a TIE Interceptor. The TIE/IN interceptor was a model of starfighter created by the Empire. A more dangerous TIE model than the standard TIE fighter, the design of the wings allowed pilots a greater field of view, while it’s improved engine allowed greater speed and manoeuvrability, and 4 laser cannons (one on each wing-tip) left it with greater firepower, however the interceptor still lacked a shield or hyperdrive. By the time of the Battle of Endor, the TIE Interceptor made up one-fifth of the Empire’s starfighter fleet.
What do you think of the minikit, and the advent calendar in general?
Thanks for reading. May the Force be with you….
