Star Wars Advent Calendar: Day 17

Posted by ,

The 2018 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar has now included items from seven different films, three animated television series and even Star Wars Legends!

I hope the other movies will be acknowledged as we approach the final week.

Guavian Soldiers appeared in 75180 Rathtar Escape last year and a third enforcer is found here. I think these are among the best Star Wars minifigures that LEGO has produced so am pleased to see another character here, featuring the same unique head component that includes a round broadcast and sensor dish and looks perfect when compared with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Furthermore, both sides of the dark red torso and the legs are decorated with an intricate red pattern. I like the black pouches around the minifigure's waist and the gorget armour on their chest looks superb. The soldier does not come with a weapon so instead uses one of the blaster rifles from day fourteen.

Overall - 5.0 - This magnificent minifigure has only appeared once before and represents an excellent accompaniment for yesterday's Rathtar.

A quick build today, but its a nice looking figure and I didn't have any before, so I'm happy.

If it weren't for the daily update on Brickset, I'd have no idea what half of the builds are. Perfect, 5.0!

Great minifig. After teasing us with fully tooled-up minifigs early on, it's a real shame the last two guys' weapons were put with the weapons rack.

One of the coolest characters both in Lego and in the film! maybe they will be turning up in Episode IX? that would be nice!

This minifigure easily surpasses the Death Trooper, dare I say it but this minifigure is a work of art. I must see can I source some more. There was no day, thus far, that I have been disappointed with the contents of this calendar. I don't know what I will do once it's finished!!

I liked seeing them in a bit more action in Resistance.

I made the decision not to collect sequel trilogy stuff but I was glad to get this guy. Awesome helmet and sweet light red details subtly printed on the darker red armour.

I didn't own the original set and knew the minifigure would be included in the calendar from the box but was positively surprised how detailed it was!!

4.5 - it does not come with blaster rifle! I would have agreed with a 5.0 rating if it had not piggybacked on the gun rack.

Wow, really nice figure.

Nice to see such a rare and detailed figure in the calendar, although I've always found the excellently detailed molded head a little too action figure-y and not enough brick-y.
