The general build is the same as usual, with a mostly white droid body and limbs with a very unique dome and accessory. The claw arm isn't new - we've seen it before with candy corn, for example - but the mistletoe is. Presumably they want a kiss. On the... well, there's no mouth or cheek, so you figure it out. Don't tongue the holo projector. Or the Burtt Acoustic Signaler. (I just found out it had a name. Ben must be so proud.)
It might not be worth the secondary market mark-up, but this is another nifty droid that doesn't look out of place in my droid stash. Well, OK, the mistletoe is weird, but I'll allow it. The arm grips it well, so hopefully you won't lose it when you move the figure around your various displays.
Collector's Notes: I got this from my pal Shannon.
