"I have bought two of the Star Wars Lego advent calendars, every year. One for my partner to open, (mad Star Wars fan. Even more mad Lego fan), the second for me to keep safe. Going to give it a miss this year though. Very disappointed with the selection. It's obviously (understandably) a money making activity for Lego, but a little imagination would go a long way.
How about making alternate days pieces of parts to go to make up a larger model and in fill with mini figures. It would be a more satisfying process and there would be a complete model for "kids" to play with on Christmas day......."
