LEGO Star Wars 75340 Advent Calendar 2022 (329 Pieces) multicoloured 6378943, 15.04 x 10.32 x 2.78 inches
About this deal
The Sand Castle is a cheeky take on Darth Vader’s actual castle, which was featured in 75251 Darth Vader’s Castle.
Luke Skywalker most notably pilots one on Tatooine, and blasts Womp Rats with them, so these airspeeders were seminal in his growth as a pilot, to eventually blow up the Death Star. There are 11 of the 24 builds shown on the front of the box, meaning that there are still plenty of surprises waiting within. One of the things we really like is how even the AT-AT is joining in with the Christmas fun, donning a Santa hat and even a long white beard!That’s right, the AT-ST was in The Empire Strikes Back, during a couple of shots in the Battle of Hotch!
This minifigure was previously only available in 75298 AT-AT vs Tauntaun Microfighter set, which I believe has now been retired. It features 8 LEGO Star Wars characters and 16 mini builds for Christmas adventures in a galaxy far, far away. It has red and white patterns printed on both the front and back, with the front also having a little R2-D2 printed onto it too.This minifigure is exclusive to the 2022 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar, and features Darth Vader on summer vacation, wearing a summery tank top with a Death Star, and TIE Fighters across a tropical beach scene. It is small and cute, I like it very much and this Christmas Grogu will become the main character of several funny scenes. Here’s a look at Anakin’s head, where he has a relaxing and chilled out smile underneath his helmet.
The other four (B1 battle droid, phase 1 clone trooper commander, Imperial snowtrooper, and Luke Skywalker) are all either useful army builders or appropriately dressed for cold winter months.The sheer number of advent calendars only seems to expand every year, with increasingly niche countdowns catering to everyone from wine connoisseurs to beauty enthusiasts – and now, Lego has launched its advent calendar series for Christmas 2023.
