It's hard not to love this from the moment you take a look at the box and see BB-8 staring back at you. As someone who always wished they'd bought the R2-D2 set when it came out it was a no-brainer to build this little droid. The build was enjoyable, involved, occasionally tricky and a couple of times felt a little repetitive; but the 2 and a bit hours when pretty quickly and to see him take shape bag by bag was great. The external appearance hides the level of complexity and mechanics going on inside brilliantly, and the movement the mechanics create are very nicely done. The easy option would have been to have the head rotate only, however the additional effort the design team have gone to to create the authentic BB-8 head movement is well worth it and it's the first thing people comment on when they see it in action. The scale of the model is perfect for display, and the stand, info sticker and mini BB-8 make it a great shelf display piece for any collector (dusting it in the coming weeks and months won't be so much fun). In terms of playability, this isn't one the kids will be spending hours with, but then that isn't really the point with this one. It's on a slightly higher than normal shelf keeping it out of the reach of little fingers, although mini BB-8 seems to have gone missing, perhaps to a galaxy far far away! If you buy it and build it, you'll love it ..... and I challenge you to walk past it without giving the head a little wobble!

Brilliantly Beautiful BB-8 Build

It's hard not to love this from the moment you take a look at the box and see BB-8 staring back at you.

As someone who always wished they'd bought the R2-D2 set when it came out it was a no-brainer to build this little droid.

The build was enjoyable, involved, occasionally tricky and a couple of times felt a little repetitive; but the 2 and a bit hours when pretty quickly and to see him take shape bag by bag was great.

The external appearance hides the level of complexity and mechanics going on inside brilliantly, and the movement the mechanics create are very nicely done.

Tons of Character

Was a bit hesitant on this purchase initially but of course ended up pulling the trigger. My initial concern was the potential smaller than expected size and a monotonous build based on the shape. While BB-8 is a bit smaller than he appears on the back of the box, the final result is still stunning. Further, the build was surprising fun and challenging due to the many small white pieces.

The big takeaway on this set is that it possesses a level of character not present in most sets. When you twist the side panel and the head moves he literally seems alive. The wobbly travel created by the use of the gears and rubber band create something very unique and incredibly close to the movie experience. The extending "thumbs up" torch is also a great touch although if I'm being super critical it would be great if the flame was a bit more vertical when extended as it is slightly angled when built.

Overall, i would recommend this purchase. I am surprised it isn't a bit larger and advertised as a UCS for $25 more but for what you pay this is a really great set that has awesome display and play value.

BB-eautiful

Ok, so first the build is a bit repetitive, but it's a sphere, so that should be no surprise. The interior mechanism for the moving parts was very impressive and satisfying. The play features are right on point. I really appreciated the layering technique used to achieve the spherical shape. I was very happy with the final result.

B B-RILLIANT

I bought this set because I wanted to add a fun and different piece to my lego starwars collection. This was the perfect choice as BB-8 is an iconic Star Wars character and he brought a nice brightly coloured touch to the collection. The build was quite challenging and towards the end got too repetitive for my liking. I also found that when I placed him on the stand he would never fit perfectly and when he did a bit broke of this was very frustrating. All in all though I love this set and I think it is worth the money I highly recommend this set.

Superb!!!

This is a set I was very excited to get, having seen the images of it I loved the fact that you get a stand and a spec sheet sticker like the UCS sets, I think these really finish off a set nicely.

The box was bigger then I expected and it came with 6 numbered bags, the build was very enjoyable and it was a lot more intricate then I thought it would be, the amount of mechanisms inside this build are very fun to make and none of it was boring or repetitive, even the outer shell of BB-8, each side is built slightly differently. The build tool me roughly 3 hours and wasn't especially challenging but some parts were quite fiddly and require a fair amount of pacience.

This set comes with some awesome functions, there are parts which you can turn on each side, one which makes the head turn around and the other makes the lighter thumbs up come out of the front, when you turn them it is a very smooth process and all moves very freely. It also feels like a very strong and solid build and you don't need to worry about carrying it around.

You get a smart looking display stand and a spec sheet which is a really nice addition and doesn't take too long to build (not as long as some other stands like Slave 2 or TIE Fighter), you also get a minifig of BB-8 to go on the stand.

I would definitely recommend this set to any Star Wars fan as it's an awesome build, looks fantastic and has cool play features and can work as a nice display piece, (it would also look awesome if you have the UCS R2D2!)

Easily 5/5 for me!!!!

Fantastic

This was my first ever lego set bought for me as a present and as soon as I seen it I couldn't wait to get building, the whole building process is so enjoyable and satisfying, the building process was not difficult at all because the instructions are very clear and the final result is amazing.

There isn't really anything that could make this set better apart from mabye lights and sounds.

The only minor thing I think could be changed about this is that there could be some attachment to the door on the front to close it when you wind back the welding torch but it's not really anything major and the set itself is still amazing.

I would 100% recommend this to anyone do not hesitate to buy it looks great and is great value for money.

Great Value for a Star Wars UCS

I bought this one so I could have both R2-D2 and BB-8. It was definitely a good investment. It was a lot of fun to build. There was almost no repetition. It would have been awesome if it was able to roll.

Overall, I love it.

BBGreat

This is a Fantastic Set. Lego have pulled out all the stops in the technical area to get the movement of his head is the best I have ever seen!!

They have also managed to capture his Character beautifully.

Overall a Fantastic Build and a BBGREAT addition for any collector. 100% really pleased I bought this set.

A ball of pleasure

I recently reviewed the Newt's case LEGO and told it was my first set I bought since very long long time. This was the second that accompanied it for my new beginning as a LEGO fan (see picture)! (and I am a Star Wars Fan as well).

The LEGO was very enjoyable, worth the price (in term of pieces/price :D ) and the final result is very satisfying! The head mechanism is too much fun to play with! I would have like an automatic closure of the front when you can "lit" the little burner, but otherwise, super nice! Play experience is 4/5, because it is a bit boring to have 5/6 parts that offer the same challenge and same concept ^^' each time. But the inside mechanism was super cool to build and weird at the same time!

I recommend, really ! ... and be careful with the pieces... I switched one without holes with one with holes by accident at some stage, and found myself unable to put the head on top ^^' had to tear the poor BB-8 apart to switch pieces back....

One of a kind

Me and my 8 years old daughter loved to build and play with this bb8. Would really apreciate if in the future lego will upgrade this model with remote control and wheels mechanism, that would be perfect!

1. Hi Jean! It's great to hear that your grandson is a big LEGO® fan! After the BB-8™ is built there are a few fun play features he can enjoy! He's able to turn one wheel at the side to rotate the detailed head, and another to open the access hatch and extend the ‘welding torch'. It also makes a great display piece since it come with a stand. I hope this helps, Jean!
