It’s day five of the 2017 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar, as excitement continues to build for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Behind today’s door we get our second minifigure, a Resistance Officer — and a brand new minifigure at that (albeit using some preexisting parts). The Resistance Officer could come from The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi, but our bets are on the former based on when these sets are put together, some 18-24 months ahead of time.
UPDATED: Our friends at Brickset have alerted us to the fact that this is actually Major Brance from The Force Awakens who features in one of the deleted scenes. He will soon be joined by Major Ematt in Defence of Crait (set #75202) on December 15th.
The minifigure comes with legs, printed torso, printed head, hair and gun, so 5 pieces in total, with no extras. It’s really great to get something new, and the Resistance Officer could work with the mounted cannon from yesterday.
Join us tomorrow at 5:01pm GMT for a look behind door 6.
Thanks to the LEGO LCE team for all their help and support in 2017, and for providing this set. The views and options expressed are our own.
