Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar Day 22: Baby.

And I'm playing catch up as I missed day 22 of the Lego Star Wars advent calendar - a calendar that has but three more doors to prove its worth and justify its price tag! Will today thrill or buzz kill?

Let's open Door Number 22 and find out for ourselves!

And... it's... a...

Baby Boba Fett Jr!

Well, this isn't so bad. At least it's a minifig, and at least it's a unique, named character. If you need some backstory, when making sand-hatin' love story Attack of the Clones, George Lucas realised, "Hey! This Boba Fett character is far too popular! So why don't we dampen the mythos by showing him as a useless, floppy-haired, crying kid?" And thus, Baby Boba Fett Jnr was born and there was much rejoicing!

Notice that he has two different faces. There's the maniacal, "Ha ha! My dad is awesome because he is killing the crap out of Jedi!" and there's this sad face as if to say, "Oh crap, my dad just totally got his head cut off by Samuel L. Jackson!"

Try convincing a non-prequel fan that this character is Boba Fett and report back on how quickly you get punched in the throat!

And for those keeping score, each day I pit this calendar against the Playmobil Jurassic Park one. And Baby Boba wins the point! Looks like a comfortable win for Lego this year which is unfathomable considering what we got!
