2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar Spotted In The Wild

2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar


The first signs of winter are on the way (well they're always on the way in Canada, but you learn to tune them out). The days are getting short, the kids will be heading back to school soon and new toys are trickling out onto the shelves. Nothing says winter is coming like the release of the new LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar that so many have a hate/love relationship with. Our intrepid NY chat troll murphquake has found the beastie at a local TRU with a whopping $58 price tag. It isn't up on the TRU website yet, or anywhere else it seems, but it's only a matter of time and we'll let you know asap when it does. It looks like this one has codes on each Sunday window that unlock surprises online, undoubtedly themed around the Yoda Chronicles. If you want to spoil the surprises, he's taken all kinds of photos of the daily bits here.

Thanks again murph!

They actually had them at my local lego store (Denver) when I was there yesterday, I thought it was a bit early for the advent calendar... anyways I didn't check the price but I assume it's cheaper than the TRU markup

They also had them at my local Lego store (Concord NC) when I was there on Monday. They told me they had just gotten them in that very day. The Star Wars one was $39.99, and the City and Friends were each $29.99.

80 and sunny in socal - winter is coming...
I hadn't previously looked at the pics -
A. Pity that
Spoiler: show
Santa Fett helmet
isn't rendered in red or dark red - that would have been sweet.
B. The
Spoiler: show
RGS micro
is exactly the same as 2011 - LAZY!
C. The other micros and minifigs seem ok - a mixed bag really - I mean I've been dying for another
Spoiler: show
Kid Boba Fett minifig

- how long until it's selling for $25?

Fool me once Lego... how long did it take for this set to go on sale last year? At least they are starting it at a more reasonable price this year.

As usual, I'll be waiting for a clearance sale on this one again. This year's calendar does appeal to me more, though, with the inclusion of Boba Fett.

All I can think of is Brad Pitt moaning, "Ooohhhhh, what's in the box?!"

These are out now I believe everywhere. They were at my Lego store (NY)
Thought you'd like this about the Vatican cameos.

I'm not exactly sure spoiler tags are needed for things that are on the box art for the product... ;)
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.
