Christmas in July -- Day Two

On the second day of Christmas in July the Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar gave to me...

Nute Gunray. Our very first Lego Minifigure! You'll recognize Nute from Star Wars: Episode One, if you have had the misfortune of watching that film recently. Otherwise you'll be able to appreciate this figure for the awesome looking headpiece and generally pissed off expression.

Lego doe a fantastic job with these minifigures, always making sure they are both detailed enough to nail the look and feel of the character yet simplistic enough to still fit within the Lego universe. You'll see a few different figures spread throughout the month and while they do not provide the same level of interactivity as the ships do. They are by far my favorite parts of this set.
