I liked most of the holiday droids because they didn't seem too Earthy - this one veers more toward a holiday decoration, something you probably couldn't actually work in to a shelf of normal action figures. This is the one you put next to your Holiday S.L.U.G. Zombies or your The Black Series holiday edition figures. It's vibrant, charming, and as a nice hat - there's a lot to like here in terms of creativity. It makes sense that there would be figures that use the droid body as a base on which to make decorations or artist figures, and I'm surprised there aren't actually a lot more of them yet.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from some guy on eBay for a lower price!
