Grogu wears a tiny Christmas sweater!
The LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar for 2021 will be an exclusive Mandalorian themed set comprised of small builds and minifigures. The set was inspired by the Disney+ Original Series and includes some fun holiday aspects, from snow launching weapons to The Mandalorian and Grogu wearing sweaters and scarves, it certainly packs the Christmas spirit.
The new advent calendar set is made up of 335 pieces and includes a festive box that folds out and acts as a background display for the set.
LEGO Star Wars designer Jason Zapantis recapped the creative process for this advent calendar:
“We look to pick a variety of builds balancing between the iconic elements from the show, recognizable favorites, and offering up some unique builds. Of course, we always have our Christmas-themed minifigures/modified builds each year. Something different for this year is that we have a buildable speeder bike that can be used by the Scout Trooper with room to attach Grogu in his holder on the back. We have a hover crib for Grogu and the ride-on droid transport trailer. A lot of the items allow for interaction and play with minifigures, with some builds belonging to a sub group in the calendar. There’s a lot of opportunity to create your own little stories with the builds.”
