Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar 2012, Day 12: Snow Selleck!

And we’re also halfway through our often confusing, occasionally disappointing, but sometimes surprising Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar! Yesterday I threw down a challenge! I said, “Hey Lego! If you’re going to give me a Laser Radar Dish Pizza Delivery Cannon then you had better give me a Hoth Rebel Soldier to operate it!”

Did Lego grant my Christmas wish? Find out what’s behind Door #12... after the jump!

And... it’s... a...

Hooray! Way to go, Lego! You did it! All our Christmas dreams have come instantly true thanks to this hearty Hoth Rebel Trooper of my very own!

And let’s give credit where credit’s due. This is one fine minifig, He has a backpack for storing his books and pencil case, and a hat with goggles that can be placed either over his eyes or on top of his head.

In fact for some inexplicable reason he came with two additional goggles/visors as well so either Lego anticipates these things to be easy to lose/break, or Lego has been into the cooking sherry.

But by far my favourite thing about this guy is his mighty moustache. Seriously... look at that soup-strainer as he orders pizza with the pizza cannon!

That’s why I am going to call this trooper Mot Selleck and strongly encourage you to write a backstory for him on Wookieepedia. I guess that Empire Strikes Back was filmed in the early eighties and a lot of leftover pornstars from the seventies were looking for additional work?

In the ongoing competition between the Playmobil Game of Thrones calendar and this one, today is a no-brainer! You’ve earned this point, Lego! Well played!

Playmobil Game of Thrones Advent Calendar: 7
Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar: 5


  1. Yes finally i have a question, how in the world do you pick a crow over a freaking star destroyer?

  2. A: this is a really cool mini fig! Makes up for the random.brown blob! I love the 2 goggle positions.

    B: I think its clear why we get 3 goggles, Lego knows they messed up in the series 8 blind packs. They know we don't care about football and would rather turn him into a rebal!!

  3. This is the Lego version of Major Bren Derlin

    1. Don't listen to him, kids, I'm pretty much 100% sure it's Major Mot Magnum Selleck P.I.

    2. But Bren Derlin is John Ratzenberger! JOHN freaking RATZENBERGER! How can you beat that?!? Trick question: You can’t!
