I don't intend to post something EVERY DAY about the advent calendar, but I heard so much squealing and "WHOA!" when they opened today's panel that I had to see what they found.
According to The Boy (my Lego "expert") this is Nute Gunray, one of the Trade Federation villains from Episodes 1 through 3. Apparently (also according to The Boy) this guy is hard to find/get - available in only one Lego set that was released in 2009 (#8036 Separatist Shuttle). He was very pleased with this one.
