Advent Day 3 - Star Wars

Posted by ,

Our third gift from the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar this year is an FA-4 Pilot Droid minifigure, which up until now, has only appeared previously in set 75017 Duel on Geonosis. It goes nicely with the Solar Sailer from yesterday, although it is not particularly useful as a standalone minifigure, unlike perhaps a Battle Droid which one can never have too many of.

The minifigure is identical to its earlier appearance, and while it is not the most interesting of characters, the three dark brown 1x1 slopes which are included (taking the spare into account) are fairly rare, appearing in only two other sets, which might be appealing to some.

If you have not purchased 75017 Duel on Geonosis, this is a great minifigure and will be a welcome addition to your collection. On the other hand, if you do own the aforementioned set, perhaps the dark brown slopes might be useful to you more than the minifigure itself.

Overall - 3.5 - Not a bad minifigure at all, but not particularly useful if you already own 75017 other than for the parts.

I think you could use him for a moc of a larger scale countdooku's solar sail or for him to pilot the original just a thought.

How do you add the Advent Countdown to your customized home page?

I thought there was only six figures at first, when I opened day three I was shocked that there was seven or more figures.
