Our third Minifigure of this year's LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar is a Rebel Commando, who has appeared in several sets before, most recently 10236 Ewok Village. This is a highly detailed and useful Minifigure, as it is nice to build a small army of these soldiers for use in Endor MOCs or for display with sets like the Ewok Village.
His helmet has been around since 2009, where it first appeared in 8038 The Battle of Endor, and it looks fantastic, featuring some excellent moulding and highly detailed printing, which comes together to bring astonishing accuracy to the piece. His head is a reuse of Boromir's from the Lord of the Rings theme, and his torso is detailed on front and back along with some sand green legs. Unfortunately he is unarmed, but no doubt some weapons will be provided at some point in the Advent Calendar.
Overall, this is a very welcome inclusion, and it should be quite useful in my opinion, particularly given that 10236 Ewok Village will most likely be at the top of many people's Christmas lists this year.
Overall - 4 - A lovely Minifigure and a useful one for every Star Wars fan.
