Oh BB-8, you lovable little scamp. You’ve rolled into my collection and forced my hand, leading me to begin my descent to the dark side, and collect Star Wars Funko Pop. It’s a burden for sure, but someone has to do it! So that little random rant aside, I love the BB-8 Funko!
It’s a great model, and captures the droids character well. Now, there’s not much to it, it is after all basically a ball with a head, but nonetheless, it still looks good. The colors all look good, and unlike my R2-D2 model, the paintwork is all in the right places.
The one thing I really liked was how shiny the eye is! In certain lights it really does shine, adding a glass affect to the model that looks really impressive.
When I first saw the Star Wars Funko Pop’s, the thing that really put me off (apart from the fact I’d go bankrupt if I started collecting them) was that they were all on a base. It’s not the end of the world, but it felt a bit unnecessary. Thankfully, you can remove the base from your Pop’s, which is a nice little feature.
All in all, this is a good model, with good paint work despite its simplicity. If you’re a Star Wars fan, then you know what you need to do next…. Fulfill your destiny!
