Nerdversity Reviews: LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (Day 21)

Can't believe we're on Day 21 already. It won't be long before Christmas is here. I hope you've been enjoying the Daily updates and taking the Journey with me across the Star Wars Universe. So, without further ado, here's today's update; 

We're staying on Hoth for a little longer and with the Rebel Alliance too. We have another firing weapon, this time with a Hoth Rebel Blaster turret.

Here's the parts in their baggie. The spare parts are a spare launcher piece and some red laser bolts. These pieces will be commonly lost or broken

Here's the cannon from the front and back. It went together very easily and only has a handful of parts. The instructions were very clear and didn't seem at all confusing

Here's a short video of the cannon firing. It operates in much the same way that the turbo laser battery did. Push down on the clip and let the blaster part fire off. It does have some force and goes a fair distance. So do be careful with these. 

In conclusion, not a bad little build and does look great next to the ion cannon. I can't wait to really put these against the Hoth Imperials. The Rebel forces are growing. This little set is really enhanced by the inclusion of the Rebel trooper as well. It'd look great next to any Hoth Diorama 

What will we get tomorrow? Join us tomorrow and find out
