7958 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar Available Again

Update 8/22: It is now sold out from Amazon and only available through 3rd party resellers. We’ll keep monitoring the situation and let you know if anything changes.

Availability of 7958 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar through Amazon comes and goes and as of this writing, it is back in stock, sold and shipped by Amazon guaranteeing you the best price on this set at $39.99 with no tax to most states and free shipping. If it sells out again, we’ll do our best to try and keep you posted on availability here. If you haven’t gotten one yet, now might be a good time.

So as not to spoil any surprises, I’ll be doing a review of each day’s mini model every day starting December 1.

LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia Release Date Bumped Up

According to Amazon’s page, the release date for the LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia has been bumped up from October 3 to September 19, 2011. That’s a little over a month away! The cost is still only $11.16. This combined with the Advent Calendar, you can get a lot of Christmas shopping done early.

7958 Star Wars Advent Calendar On Sale Now at Amazon

Update 2: It’s back in stock as of 8/12 6:39pm PST.

Update: The set sold out pretty quickly from Amazon. It still has yet to show up on Shop@Home though. We’ll keep you posted when it does.

Amazon.com is now selling the 7958 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar for $39.99. It qualifies for Free Super Saver Shipping. If history is any indication, the specialty Advent Calendar sets (read non-City) tend to sell out quickly. I would be surprised if this was still available by the time December rolls around. This is one item I would suggest not waiting for a price deal on. Free shipping and no tax to most states will probably be the best deal you’ll get.

SDCC Exclusive 7958 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar

SDCC Exclusive 7958 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar - Packaging

Last post for the night.

This year’s Comic Con exclusive was far easier to get than last year’s as it did not involve any type of merry-go-round tactics; that’s reserved for the Green Lantern/Batman minifig promos. You could just walk right up to the counter to purchase them. Limit of 2 per person per transaction. If you wanted more, you had to go to the back of the line.

Anyways, for $50 bucks, not only do you get your hands on the Advent Calendar early, but you get an awesome LEGO Star Wars holiday print and exclusive packaging designed to look like a mailed package. There’s even a pull tab on the side flaps to simulate a Priority Mail shipping box. The shipping box has a lot of cool little details such as Santa Claus’s return address, LEGO Star Wars holiday themed stamps, an “open by” date, and ribbon graphic. There is a limited number of sets, 1,000, and they’re individually numbered. The kicker is that the print you get is numbered and matched to the set you get. Is the $20 premium worth it? I’d say so. The limited edition print alone is probably worth the extra cost. And you also get the sweet packaging design. I’m far more satisfied with this year’s exclusive than previous years’.

New LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar

7958 Star Wars Advent Calendar

A Modular Life is reporting on a new LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar for 2011. This will be, hands down, the number one best and fastest selling Advent Calendar ever. I really hope this set is at the New York Toy Fair this weekend.

Thanks to Tohst for the heads up.
