Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar, Day 11: Hoth Laser Cannon

The good news: it's not from Episode I. The bad news: it's not very exciting. Well, maybe you'll find it more exciting than I do.

Today's build is a Hoth laser cannon. The official term is a "1.4 FD P-Tower laser cannon." I thought for sure that even your standard Star Wars fan would have no idea what a "1.4 FD P-Tower laser cannon" is, but then I asked Boyfriend if he knew what it was, just off the top of his head, and he sent me this picture, so apparently he knew:

And apparently it's also called an Atgar laser cannon, so who knows what its real name is!

Episode V Hoth laser cannon:

The problem is that we need a rebel minifig to operate this laser cannon, but we don't have one yet. Maybe General Veers wants to use it?

The Gungan?

The droid?

Hopefully we'll get a rebel soon!
