StarWars.com recently spoke with LEGO Star Wars designer Jason Zapantis on the process that went into creating the 2021 Advent Calendar. Point your browser here for that interview and be on the lookout for the 2021 Advent Calendar beginning September 1.
A new snow has fallen. Carolers sing outside your window. You cozy up by the fireplace, cup of hot cocoa in hand.
And there’s Grogu in a holiday sweater, enjoying the season while Tusken Raiders launch snowballs at stormtroopers.
In other words, it’s the perfect Christmastime scene.
We could only be talking, of course, about the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar for 2021 — the latest installment in what has become a LEGO Star Wars Christmas tradition, and revealed exclusively here on StarWars.com. Themed to The Mandalorian, the set features minifigures and small builds inspired by the Disney+ Original Series, and many with a fun holiday twist. There are seven LEGO Star Wars characters packed with the set, including The Mandalorian and Grogu in a wintery scarf and holiday sweater, respectively, plus a Scout Trooper, Stormtrooper, Tusken Raider, IG-11, and IT-O Interrogator Droid. Fans will also find mini ships, such as The Razor Crest, Riot Mar’s starfighter, Imperial Troop Transport, X-wing, TIE Fighter, Imperial Light Cruiser, Boba Fett’s starship, and Grogu’s hoverpram; other mini builds include an E-web heavy blaster snow launcher, training targets, Tusken Raider’s weapon rack and snow launcher, Imperial weapon rack, and Mandalorian weapon rack. It’s an adorable collection that would fill even Moff Gideon’s heart with holiday cheer; for LEGO Star Wars fans, we can think of no better bounty to help count down to Christmas. StarWars.com caught up with LEGO Star Wars designer Jason Zapantis to talk about this year’s LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar, available September 1.
