WATCH: LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar Toy Review

November 13th, 2012 by Saxon Comments

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Even though some of us here at FTN Towers really really wish it wasn’t.  We haven’t even started our Christmas shopping yet!  And we’re currently lobbying for some type of legal restriction on erecting Christmas Trees.

Regardless, that time of the year where we all go on an insane spending spree just to please our loved ones is quickly approaching, and nothing confirms this more than the apperance of the advent calendar.

But this year, LEGO are once again offering us a twist on the classic.  Instead of your kids (or you, if you’re into that sort of thing (and we are – ed)) peeling back a cardboard door and recieving a little piece of chocolate for the first twenty four days of December, they will find a small bag of LEGO bits which, when assembled, will form a micro Star Wars figure or vehicle!  It all sounds very cool, and a nice, healthy alternative to chocolate, but is it worth it?  Watch our video review below to find out!
