The Ultimate List of LEGO Holiday Sets – Part 3

Today, we continue the repost update to an older blog post series, The Ultimate List of LEGO Holiday Sets. Welcome to Part 3 of this series, where we cover the LEGO Advent Calendars. We hope you enjoy the update to the list!


Last week, I started a series, The Ultimate List of LEGO Holiday Sets. We’ve gone through sets that will work for you if you want to create a winter village and sets to help you fill out that winter village layout. Today we’ll go through the LEGO Advent Calendar series. These could have also been listed in Part 2 of the series, but since they have an additional function other than just getting added to a winter layout, we’ve given them their own post:

 

LEGO Advent Calendars

Another great way to get filler pieces for any holiday decorations is by purchasing the advent calendars. Each advent calendar comes with a mix of 24 mini builds, accessories and minifigures… more than enough to add some additional pizzaz to any holiday decoration setup you create. Below are all the advent calendars from 2016, plus affiliate links (at no additional cost to you – always), where you can purchase the past year’s advent calendars.

Brown. Hockey. Sticks. ‘Nuff said.

No, seriously. My husband has already claimed them for the winter village layout. But I’m most excited about the ice carving! That is definitely going on our winter village layout!

Where to buy

You can normally purchase your advent calendars at LEGO Shop@Home; however, they are already completely sold out on the website. (You may be able to pick one up at your local store, but I wouldn’t be surprised if pickings are slim.) You can get your LEGO City Advent Calendars at Amazon:

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75184)

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2017 75184

I love to see hte Millenium Falcon, but you know it doesn’t come with the string of colored lights like pictured on the front the box. Should I cry “false advertising”? ;) This year, the special “Santa” minifigure is BB-8. If you don’t have one, this is a good set to get it!

LEGO Friends Advent Calendar (41326)

LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2017 41326

For 2017, the LEGO Friends Advent Calendar is weak on builds and minifigures. (There is only 1 minifgure… how is that even possible?) However, it is chock-ful of animals! Need a bunny, foal, kitty, pug, parrot or gerbil…this is the advent calendar for you!

LEGO Christmas Build Up (40253)

LEGO Christmas Build Up Advent Calendar 40253

In 2016, LEGO introduced a promotional set you could only pick up with a $99 purchase during the month of November. For 2017, they decided to bring back the LEGO Christmas Build Up (40253) set. This is an excellent set for those of you that don’t necessarily need minifigures and want something you can rebuild over and over each year. You won’t be able to find the set in stores, but you can pick it up with the links below.

While I did say this was a complete list, I may have missed one here or there. What other sets would you add to make this list of ultimate holiday LEGO sets complete?
