LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018 – Day 5

December 5th brings Day 5 of the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2018, what’s behind today’s door….

It’s our second minifigure! Following on from Rose Tico which was behind door 2, today we get IG-88 from The Empire Strikes Back. This is the same minifigure that appeared in the excellent Bounty Hunter Speeder Bike Battle Pack (#75167) from last year, and most recently in Betrayal at Cloud City (#75222) released in September.

This is a good representation of IG-88, the printed head piece does well to depict the head and the figure also comes equipped with a weapon. The bag contains extra straight and curved Battle Droid arms.

Five days in and we haven’t had a set/minifigure from the same film or TV series yet!

Join us at 5:01pm GMT tomorrow for a look behind door 6.
