Honesty time: Who doesn’t adore the excitement of opening an advent calendar every day in December, especially LEGO enthusiasts and collectors? Since its inaugural release in 1998 with LEGO Advent Calendar (1298), there have been over 50 distinct LEGO Advent Calendars in various main themes including LEGO City, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Harry Potter and LEGO Friends. These sets typically have a limited availability, exclusively for one Christmas season, and stay in stores for about three months. Many sets also feature multiple LEGO minifigures.
LEGO® Star Wars™ Advent Calendar sets have become an absolute sensation for fans of both franchises. Every year, these sets fly off the shelves faster than a tie-fighter in space. And with good reason! Not only do they have awesome mini-figures and buildable figures from the Star Wars universe, but you also get to put them together in fun and creative ways. It’s no wonder that even Yoda couldn’t predict the popularity of these sets.
New on the LEGO Store is a set to spread holiday cheer to children (and adults) every day leading up to Christmas; the 2023 Advent Calendar from LEGO® Star Wars™ (75366). This calendar is filled with unique characters, mini build toys, and accessories that bring to life the stories of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Star Wars: The Bad Batch, allowing kids to combine them with other LEGO Star Wars sets. Within the set, you’ll find 8 LEGO® Star Wars™ characters, including Emperor Palpatine, an Ewok, a Pit Droid in Christmas attire, a reindeer-clad Gonk Droid, and Omega with a sled. Perfect for Star Wars fans aged 6 and above, this calendar also contains 15 mini builds, including The Justifier, a STAP speeder, The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter, Clone Command Centre, and an Ewok village, inspiring hours of imaginative play.
So why not join the Jedi (and Sith) ranks and get your hands on your own Star Wars Advent Calendar today? May the force (and bricks) be with you!
