2021 Advent Calendars

It’s never too early for Christmas with The LEGO® Group. The 2021 Advent Calendars are now listed online and will be out September 1st. A total of five calendars will be available this year – the most to date. New for this year is a Marvel Avengers themed calendar which we covered in a previous article (click here). The four remaining sets are all from returning themes: City, Friends, Harry Potter and Star Wars. As with previous calendars, you will get a mix of minifigures and mini-builds in 24 boxes.

Lots to Choose From

This year’s selection of calendars offers a little something for all interests. I’ve received a calendar each year for my birthday (early December) and it’s a fun treat. I really loved last year’s Harry Potter calendar, the minifigures and the builds were real standouts. And the trend of popular licensed characters in ‘ugly christmas sweaters’ is happily continuing with Iron Man, The Mandalorian and even tiny Grogu. Last year’s Darth Vader in tacky sweater is even fetching a decent price on the resale market. Im sure glad I got one, it’s hilariously fun!

I think The Avengers calendar will go on my wish list this year. The Harry Potter figures aren’t all that unique and I can’t begin to count how many stormtroopers and scout troopers I have. Same goes with all those Santas from the City sets 😋 But what do you guys think of this year’s selection? Are you putting any of these calendars on the must-have list? Or will you wait for that inevitable January 1st clearance sale? Let us know in the comments, and as always, keep on brickin’.
