Star Wars Advent Calendar 2013 – Day 24 & Wrap Up

24
Day 24 – Santa Jango Fett

(Singing) On cycle twenty four of Life Day my first mate gave to me, a merry-making Mando,
a jet propelled toboggan,
a future Sarlacc snack,
an asteroid evader,
a hyperdriveless delta,
a toothless soldier beetle,
an Ewok chasing trooper,
one shiny explosion,
two racks and counting,
a creepy crawling brawler,
one big brown disappointment,
a disco crazy clanker,
a snazzy little space crane,
a Volkswalker Beetle,
a cranky Xerox copy,
another grey triangle,
a case of Déjà vu,
three teeny blasters,
an angry Steward of Endor,
a pair of ruby slippers,
a bounty hunter’s hot rod,
a break-dancing pilot,
an impractical escape ship
and a dancing droid beneath the Life Tree.
(/Singing)

Well, here we are. The end of our third Star Wars Advent Calendar and this year Santa is being played by none other than Jango Fett, capping off our four day Fett-mas. I like the printing on this guy and will probably switch it out for a Santa Boba, but now I have the new Jango helmet at least to go with the other Mando brain buckets. Good to see the family together again for the holidays, however dysfunctional.

Overall, I quite enjoyed the advent this year and was pleased with the micro builds for the most part. A pretty decent selection of minifigures too and while it may have had some lemons, I still think it could have been a lot worse. It isn’t like basing it on AotC was any kind of guarantee we’d get a winner, but they still snuck in some surprises and a couple of stand out micros. I don’t know if next year the calendar will be based on Episode III or not, but if they do, they could be in for a real challenge. I vote for a Santa Vader with a Snow Threepio… again.
