Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar #8 [2011]

DSC_1272More good news on the Advent Calendar front and this time it is a Rebel Pilot. I am assuming – based at least on his helmet that he is rookie perhaps Rookie One?

“Rookie One” was the handle of a Human pilot who fought for the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War; it was used to refer to him during his training prior to the Battle of Yavin, but stuck as a nickname later, typically used instead of his actual name.

Wait – you didn’t know every character in Star Wars had an unbelievably extensive background story? Yes – and it gets a little obnoxious. At least we are staying on a really good run of cool presents – hopefully we stay away from any more Clone War nonsense.
