This is the special Lego Advent calendar. Each year Lego releases a standard Advent calendar; recently it has been part of the City series of kits. Typically, that calendar is in great supply. The second calendar is usually done in more limited quantities, and I believe this Star Wars calendar is just that kit. If this is a popular set and it sells out, the vulture resellers will arrive and the price will go way up - MSRP is $40.
There isn't much very Christmas about this set. It is essentially 24 different little Star Wars figures or vehicles. The most Christmas in here is a Yoda dressed up like Santa (good have you been?). On the other hand, the play and repeat play value of this set is fantastic. All those little figures can fight and make all kinds of really cool noises (you know the kind from your mouth, bzzzzzz, pew pew, bam - there are no electronics that make noise).
The box is the same size as previous years. The cardboard is not very rugged; it's pretty standard Lego box issue. I've posted some pictures of the box and tray. It's possible some of the doors will get torn when opening them. I imagine if somebody was really careful, they could put the toys back and save it for next year. But then they'd miss out on a year of playing with the toys.
Every Lego Maniac will love this calendar. Even though my boys are much older now, we've enjoyed these sets for the past bunch of years. Heck, Dad gets a big kick out of the daily opening and building.
Pew pew pew.
Lego in the last few years had released 2 types of advent calendars every year, one is the city and another of a different theme (castle-2008, pirates-2009, kingdoms-2010). This is the first year of Star Wars Advent Calendar and there will probably not be another Star Wars one for another 3-4 years. I'm getting a few sets (at the retail price of $39.99) for my own family and to give away as we have quite a few mini figures fans among our families and friends. This is a good gift because it is not constrained to December or 2011. With my first child, we opened our advent calendar in the middle of summer when he was 3 years old, when he was learning to count and learning delayed gratification. We counted the pieces of Lego every day and the number of "windows" we had opened. And he remembered well that "one window a day" meant exactly that and stopped whining to open all the windows after the first 3 days.
Overall, a good set and highly recommended. Anything Star Wars is marked up so, yes SW Advent is $5 more expensive than the City version. Also SW Advent has 30+ more pieces than the City one.
Overall, I feel this set is decent, especially if you can get it at its list price of $39.99. There are 8 minifigures - the Lego jackpot from my son's point of view - which include Chewbacca, Nute Gunray, R2Q5, Zev Senesca, a Tie Pilot, a Clone Pilot, a Battle Droid, and Yoda all dressed up in a Santa suit. The rest of the 10-20 piece mini sets build a fleet of tiny Star Wars ships, a handful of droids, weapons and tools rack, and yes, a token Christmas tree.
While there is nothing really wrong with this set, I don't think that it's quite as spectacular as the Pirates, Castle, and Kingdoms Lego Advent Calendars released in previous years. Those sets had a lot of exclusive minifigures and unusual accessories, and you could lay everything out together to make a little themed Lego adventure, whereas this set is just a hodge podge of everything Star Wars. If you've got a huge Star Wars fan, I'd still recommend it. But if not, I'd suggest looking at Lego's other 2011 Advent Calendar, LEGO LEGO® City Advent Calendar 7553, a cops-and-robbers themed set that starts out at least $5 cheaper and gives you just as many days of building fun.
