Christmas Stories: Gentle Giant Snowbunny Padme Mistletoe Bust

In previous posts, I’ve written about Gentle Giant’s awesome holiday themed statues that they send out to folks around Christmas time. Back in 2008, I received the Commander Cody statue with light-up snowman and scarf, then in 2009 I got the Yak Face with reindeer antlers and candy cane cane. I figured, since I was no longer working at ToyFare, ol’ Yak Face would be the last one I’d get, which was a bit sad but totally understandable. Then as if delivered by Santa himself instead of the mailman, I was surprised and excited to find a Gentle Giant box in the mail.

Since it came after Christmas (or maybe after we left to see family for the holidays, I can’t quite remember), I didn’t put what has been dubbed Snowbunny Padme up, so she was a welcome addition to my little Star Wars shelf when the missus and I started putting ourĀ  decorations up. The mistletoe and furry cape are a really nice touch. I’m not going to get my hopes up this year, but you never know when a Christmas miracle is going to happen!
