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 22 has given us a minikit of the Wampa’s cave, which I have pictured below with yesterday’s Luke figure in place. Wampas were a carnivorous, semi-sentient, primitive species of mammal which dwelled on the planet Hoth. Standing at 2.5-3m tall and with an average mass of 150kg, the wampa was one of Hoth’s top carnivorous predators. Wampas hunted tauntauns and rayboo and were willing to hunt humans, which led to some dangers for the Rebel Alliance, as wampas were known to find a way inside Echo Base and attack the Rebels or the tauntauns that they used as mounts. As tauntauns were far faster and more agile, wampas used their white fur as camouflage to aid in ambushing their prey before stunning or slaying it with their fangs/claws. They would then drag their helpless catch to a cave, within which the prey would be hung upside-down and consumed in due time.
What do you think of the minikit, and the advent calendar in general?
Thanks for reading. May the Force be with you….
