LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018 – Day 2

December 2nd brings Day 2 of the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018, it’s time to see what’s behind today’s door….

It’s our first minifigure, and we get Rose Tico from The Last Jedi. This is the same minifigure we got in last year’s Resistance Transport Pod (#75176) and it’s good to see it included here. Rose wears a Resistance uniform which features printing on the legs, and front and rear of the torso. Her head features two expressions, and she comes complete with a unique hairpiece and gun.

We can’t talk about Rose Tico without mentioning the actress that portrays her — Kelly Marie Tran. Kelly was victimised following her role in The Last Jedi and this led to her removing herself from Social Media. This is a great representation of Kelly as her character in LEGO form, and we send her our love — especially at this time of the year.

It’s been a great start to this year’s LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar and we can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings; join us at 5:01pm GMT for a look behind door 3.
