An R-2 D-2 Christmas Tree?
Day 22 of the 2014 Star Wars Advent Calendar
There are only a few days left of Lego 2014 Star Wars Advent, and the designers of the set are taking more creative approaches to the characters that we are getting. I’m no Star Wars Expert, but I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a green R-2 D-2 Christmas Tree unit in any of the movies.
Everybody Loves R2-D2. Everybody loves Christmas, too. What happens when you put the two together? More love than anyone can handle! And that’s what you get today. A one of a kind, super custom green R2 unit with a Christmas tree on top.
There is even a little series of 1×1 round clearies as lights or a tree topper. Perhaps our beloved droid was moving too fast and ran into a tree which stuck to his chassis, or maybe Luke and Leah decided to do a custom paint job on their favorite R2 unit. Either way. this droid is one of a kind.
I wonder what the Lego Gods will give us in the next 2 days?
The only way to get this Green R2-D2 Lego Droid Minifigure is in the 2014 Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar
This is what the Official Lego website has to say about the 2014 Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar:
Spend the festive period on icy planet Hoth with the LEGO® Star Wars™ Advent Calendar! Open up a door each December day to reveal a cool Star Wars themed gift, including minifigures starships, vehicles and more. Once you have all 24 gifts, unfold the playmat and act out hilarious Hoth-based scenes that everyone in the family will love to watch. This is the perfect holiday gift for LEGO Star Wars fans from any galaxy!
The Lego Advent Calendars follow a simple principle, there are 24 different mini sets each hidden behind a numbered door inside the Lego Box. You don’t open the box like a regular Lego Set, but instead, the lid is hinged, and the box opens up so that the back of the lid is a printed play-space, and then there are 24 different perforated doors.
Some people like to open each of the 24 sets all at once, but I prefer to open the first set on Dec 1, the 2nd on Dec, and so forth, all the way to Christmas Eve when I open the last one.
