To begin my final review of the 2015 Star Wars Advent Calendar I am going to bring you back to the 21st of January when I published a report on the licensed sets at the London Toy Fair. There I commented on the contents of this calendar and made reference to the R2-D2 and C-3PO minifigures, describing them at the time as 'crude.'
I was wrong. While R2-D2 is simple but charming, this fantastic C-3PO minifigure features an enormous amount of printed detail and offers a brilliant combination of Christmas attire with the original character. The beard fitted around Threepio's neck is particularly humourous and recalls this Lucasfilm Christmas card from 1979. The torso printing is unique and shows a red jacket lined with white fur, while a black belt runs around the front and back.
