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.Play Experience4.0Level of Difficulty1.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55BB-8™

Some people think it is small, but I think it has the perfect price. Besides that, I think it's quite expensive, but I bought it in store for 70€. That is a reasonable price. I love the details of the eye, the sticker info, antennas, ... I recommend it, sure! The move it makes with its head is so silly, I love it!Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money3.0Build Time: 3 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55BB-8™
- September 2nd, 2017Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0BB-eautifulCpsteel |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfOk, 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.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 5 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55BB-8™
- September 3rd, 2017Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Tons of CharacterI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfWas 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.Play Experience4.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 4 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55BB-8™
