Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar 2012 - 9509
There's a new Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar for 2012.
Lego Star Wars Calendar 2012
There's a new Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar for 2012. Yes! The first Lego Star Wars advent calendar had lots of cool stuff in it, but loads of key characters were missing. I expected that there would be another Lego Star Wars advent calendar but I thought it would be in 2013 rather than 2012. But no, Lego are spoiling us with another Star Wars Christmas Countdown!
The LEGO Star Wars advent calendar for 2012 is now available and if you didn't get last year's version you can still get the first LEGO Star Wars advent calendar which you should be able to get for a lower price than the new one.
Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Santa
Who is Santa in the 2012 Lego Star Wars advent calendar?
So who is Santa in the 2012 Lego Star Wars advent calendar? That's what everyone wants to know isn't it! Last year Yoda was the Lego Star Wars Santa - he looked very cute in his red santa suit.
This year, the rumors are that the Lego Star Wars advent calendar santa will be ... Darth Maul! Yes, you read that right. Darth Maul as Father Christmas. I was expecting another of the good guys. Obi Wan Kenobe would make a great Santa. But, not it's Darth Maul, well he does have the red color scheme going on!
Darth Maul will apparently have the same red santa suit body as Yoda did lant year. But presumably with longer red santa legs! And black hands too. And a very funky Santa hood over a Darth Maul Lego head. Very funny!
