If you want to get your hands on a LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar, you need to buy it in early November. That is a lesson I learned the hard way last year. The downside of planning ahead is that once you’ve got it, it will be several weeks before you can tear into day 1’s build. I am beginning to think that I really could use a pre-Advent calendar that counts down the days until the Advent calendar starts. Preferably that would be LEGO Star Wars, too.
