Now things are getting good.
Day 13 of the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Luke Skywalker.
Yesterday we got the Land Speeder, and today we get the driver – Luke Skywalker. This follows the pattern from a few days before where we first got the Tie Fighter Micro model, and then the Tie fighter minifig, and yesterday we got the Micro LandSpeeder, and today we get the driver.
We are now half-way through the 2014 Advent Calendar put out by Lego, and things are beginning to come together. It’s getting good, and I am starting to see a pattern here. There are three kinds of sets so far: minifigures, micro models, and weapons.
Of all three, of course the minifigures are my favorite. This is the 5th minifigure in the set, and it’s a good one. Opinions on-line are mixed. If you search some of the other Lego 3rd party websites, a lot of people seem to dislike the markings on his face. I personally don’t have a negative opinion. Sure this Luke Skywalker doesn’t resemble the rest of the Hoth themed set, but having this minifig is great, mostly because he is very rare, appearing in only 2 previous sets which are now worth a lot of money.
Luke Skywalker is represented in his shorty robe, from his home planet of Tatooine. There is enough detail to easily make out who it is, and the hair is especially a good resemblance.
The only way to get this Luke Skywalker Minifigure is in the 2014 Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar
This is what the Official Lego website has to say about the 2014 Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar:
Spend the festive period on icy planet Hoth with the LEGO® Star Wars™ Advent Calendar! Open up a door each December day to reveal a cool Star Wars themed gift, including minifigures starships, vehicles and more. Once you have all 24 gifts, unfold the playmat and act out hilarious Hoth-based scenes that everyone in the family will love to watch. This is the perfect holiday gift for LEGO Star Wars fans from any galaxy!
The Lego Advent Calendars follow a simple principle, there are 24 different mini sets each hidden behind a numbered door inside the Lego Box. You don’t open the box like a regular Lego Set, but instead, the lid is hinged, and the box opens up so that the back of the lid is a printed play-space, and then there are 24 different perforated doors.
Some people like to open each of the 24 sets all at once, but I prefer to open the first set on Dec 1, the 2nd on Dec, and so forth, all the way to Christmas Eve when I open the last one.
