The LEGO Advent Calendars are a seasonal treat, and each year, the LEGO Star Wars one in particular proves a popular item amongst LEGO fans. This year it seems especially so, given 75279 Star Wars Advent Calendar disappeared from shelves and from LEGO.com well in advance of December.
At the start of the Christmas month, then, demand has transferred over to the secondary market, and the set that was available not so long ago in stores with a RRP of £24.99 is now reaching prices of £70 on eBay.
A closer look at sold listings and auctions with bids show the set selling for anywhere between £30 and £62. These are high prices for an exclusive Poe Dameron and Darth Vader.
This year’s 75279 Star Wars Advent Calendar ties in with the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special that is now streaming on Disney+. There are 18 mini builds included with the Advent Calendar, alongside six minifigures including the aforementioned exclusive Poe and Vader wearing Christmas jumpers.
75279 Star Wars Advent Calendar isn’t the only option for fans this year, with 41420 Friends Advent Calendar, 75981 Harry Potter Advent Calendar 60268 City Advent Calendar also releasing for the season. Each of these sets are also sold out at LEGO.com but may prove a little cheaper than the Star Wars one to find on the secondary market
