What do you think of Anikin’s Jedi Starfighter
from the 2014 days of Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar?
Personally I prefer minifigures (of course), and then second best I like the extra things like canons and dioramas that go with minifigs, but we can’t have a new person every day (although I wish we did). So the next best thing are these micro builds.
There are XX pieces all together for this build, and it’s great for playing with and doing battle. I always find it amazing how the master builders can take just a few simple pieces, to create something unique and identifiable. Especially on a micro scale. In this case they used a 1×1 sloped smoke color tile to resemble the windshield, and 1×2 slotted tile that is centered beneath the cockpit that looks like a foothold to step into the fighter.
The only way to get this Micro Jedi Starfighter 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.
