One of my favorite holiday pastimes this month was the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar. If you’re looking for more LEGO fun, then you may be interested in playing the Advent Calendar video game at Lego.com.

To get the fullest experience from this game, you’ll want to use the secret codes attached to each day’s box from the physical calendar – when peeling away each square, a code is printed on the bottom right-hand corner of the building instructions. These codes unlock characters and ships in the online game.

The game play is smooth and easy to grasp. Use the arrows to move your character and the spacebar to fire your weapon. It’s very reminiscent of the 16-bit Nintendo games like Mario Brothers. There graphics also run smoothly, so there’s no lag or buffering that Hasbro’s Fighter Pods online game suffered.

My favorite element of this game is playing with Jango Fett running around in a Santa Claus suit. You can still play this game online, even if you haven’t purchased the Advent Calendar – Jango is a default character and can be played with immediately – but entering codes to unlock other characters just enriches the experience.

Here’s a closer look at the exclusive Jango Fett, redesigned young Boba Fett and Slave I from the 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar. Jango Fett comes in a snazzy Santa Claus outfit and you can alternate his gift sack with the sled’s jetpack “if you wish.” Boba Fett received a new design for his hair and slight differences in the legs.

Keep an eye out for the LEGO Star Wars 2013 Advent Calendar, which includes a special edition Jango Fett dressed as Santa Claus and a young Boba Fett. This is a great way to expand your minifigure collection, while enjoying Advent. This is also the first time young Boba Fett has been offered since 2002.
