As a LEGO fan for a veeeerrrrryyyy long time, I really look forward to new product announcements and discoveries. Not that I buy them all. Often, I don't buy any. But it's still fun to take a look. 

But one of the coolest times of the year is finding out what will be in the upcoming holiday Advent calendars. So far, two have been announced and they're pretty rad!

The LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar

Set #76390

Particularly the Draco Malfoy and Griphook minifigures and the Platform 9 3/4 support beam. I kinda dig on that dreidel near the top left although I cannot remember one being used in the movie.


The LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar

Set #75307

Screen Shot 2021-07-30 at 9.28.03 AM Screen Shot 2021-07-30 at 9.28.19 AMIt's a Mandalorian themed calendar through and through! Din Djarin (in a holiday scarf)! Grogu (in holiday pajamas)! IG-11! A redesigned Tusken Raider! E-Web cannon! Troop Transport! The Razor Crest! Although I am having a tough time remembering when there was an IT-O interrogation droid in The Mandalorian. Was that when the client was testing Grogu or maybe when Moff Gideon captured Grogu? Otherwise it was featured when Vader had Leia in custody in the original film. Whatever! Who cares! It's awesome.

Can you tell I'm excited? No? I'll try harder next time.
