Nerdversity Reviews: LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (Day 9)

We're on Day 9 already and we're still on Endor. What does today hold for us all? Read on and find out:

We have our first action feature toy today. We have an Ewok Catapult that actually fires projectiles. More on that shortly. We even have a warning not to fire it at people

Here's the parts in their plastic baggie. Only one spare part in the bag and that's a grey axle piece that connects the catapult to the base.

The finished catapult in all it's glory. It's on a quarter base with a green plant and some spare projectiles. It's fired by tapping your finger on the bottom of the launcher to fling the piece a fair distance. 

Here's a short video of the Catapult in action, only about 10 seconds long.

So far we have:
  • Weapons Rack
  • Campfire
  • Ewok mini figure
  • Catapult
Endor is filling out nicely after 4 days. All of these pieces work well on their own and on someone's desk or in any LEGO collection. But I still feel they'd work best as additions to the LEGO Star Wars sets that already exist.
