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
- Wall, Blaster, Mouse droid
- DF.9 turret placement
- 1.4 FD P-Tower
Day 20 has given us a minikit of a 1.4 FD P-Tower. The P-Tower was a light fixed anti-vehicle weapon emplacement strong enough to take out an AT-ST. Cheap and easy to use, the emplacements were able to operate in a temperature range of -73°C to 49°C and could rotate all the way around to give a 360° field of fire. They were frequently used by the Rebel Alliance, most notably at the Battle of Hoth, but we no match for the armour and firepower of the Imperial AT-ATs.
Thanks for reading. May the Force be with you….
