Our second minifig in the Advent is another short one and as I guessed may have been on the way an Ewok.
Ewoks were a diminutive species of furry bipeds native to the forest moon of Endor. They were most notable for helping the Rebel Alliance defeat the forces of the Galactic Empire at the Battle of Endor, allowing the shield generator there to be destroyed, and in turn, the Death Star II.
Ewoks were curious individuals that stood about one meter tall; they used spears, slings, and knives as weapons; they also used hang gliders as vehicles. Although skilled in forest survival and the construction of primitive technology, the Ewoks had yet to progress past stone-level technology when discovered by the Empire. They were quick learners, however, when exposed to advanced technology with simple mechanical processes and concepts. [SOURCE]
So far I am really enjoying this year’s Advent Calendar and the progression from planet to planet – hope it continues like this.
