This Is The Perfect Advent Calendar For LEGO And Star Wars Fans

For the 2016 holiday season, LEGO recently released the Star Wars advent calendar featuring mini figures like Luke Skywalker from Return of the Jedi and an exclusive white Chewbacca. The set includes 8 minifigures in all with the theme centering around the ice planet Hoth and builds featuring the Echo Base along with a selection of vehicles and weapons. Using the figurines and builds included in the kit, photographer Markus Land constructed a series of photos showcasing the characters as they engage in activities like ice hockey or just surveying the icy planet.

Check out some of his images below:
