The Lightsabers were hung by the chimney with care
Day 23 of the 2014 Star Wars Advent Calendar
Following one of the three established themes of this year’s Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar, today, on the 2nd to last day of Lego Advent, we could have gotten a minifigure (but we got one yesterday), and we could have gotten a micro build (but that was day 21), so of course today we get a weapon. In fact, we get 2 today. Lego Lightsabers!
Of all the weapons received over the last few weeks, this is by far the coolest. Sure some of the canons actually shoot 1×1 round tiles (Days 7 & 17), but the ultimate weapon, the most elegant weapon is the Lightsaber. And with this build you don’t get one, but two. A Good one, and an Evil one.
I’m guessing the Good lightsaber, with the blue blade, goes to the Luke Skywalker minifigure, and perhaps the red one will be for whatever build comes tomorrow. (Hint: After looking carefully at the box, there is one item that is represented that we haven’t gotten yet).
With 22 pieces, the most of any build this year, you get 2 lighsabers, a fireplace, and even a little white and blue gift on top of the mantle. The build photo on the box shows only one flame inside the fireplace, but since I got an extra orange flame piece, I installed it. Either the box is wrong, or you are supposed to get two, because there is a place for it inside anyway.
This has been a great year of building Lego sets. I’m so glad I started this blog, and am so glad you got to take this journey with me.
The only way to get these Christmas Lego Lightsabers 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.
