I am not sure how I missed this until yesterday, but Lego has released one of its annual advent calendars with a brand-new theme. This one is centered entirely around Guardians of the Galaxy!
76231 Guardians of the Galaxy Advent Calendar is a 268-piece set that became available on September 1st, 2022.
I guess this was to go along with the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special which will be released on Disney+ this December. The new show will be written and directed by James Gunn.
But, back to the Lego Set. This is familiar packaging, nothing really new except for the graphics. The front of the box shows the Guardians engaged in holiday activities. With a decorated Groot as the central figure. Those of us familiar the Lego advent Calendars know what that means. It looks like Rocket is roasting a turkey, Star-Lord delivers gifts, and Mantis is heading towards the drink table.
The back of the box shows us doors that I assume represent the Collector’s menagerie. We also see a few additional pieces that are going to be revealed throughout the month.
If you’ve never purchased a LEGO advent calendar before, the idea is that behind each door is a minifigure or small build, with the instructions for the build printed on the reverse side of the door. You continue these daily reveals through the month as you count down to Christmas.
I like to be kept guessing on what the builds are, unfortunately the Disney Website reveals the builds. If you are curious about what builds are included head over to the Disney Store to see them.
