Another year, another set of LEGO Advent Calendars. Once more this year we have three: 60133 City Advent Calendar, 41131 Friends Advent Calendar, and 75146 Star Wars Advent Calendar. But new this year there is another option, a 24-in-1 set 40222 Christmas Build Up.

Star Wars has a mini model of Boba Fett’s ship, the Slave I:

Here’s a photo of my camera setup.
The CowboyStudio 30-Inch Light Box is a great way to take photos, giving a nice way to diffuse the light. The lights are Julius Studio LED lamps and tripods and the camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 with a Panasonic H-FS045200 45-200 zoom lens. I bought the camera in 2012 so there are much better ones available now, but this one is still serving me well.
