As you know, in addition to three Astromech Droid releases, Hasbro also added three Two-packs of BB Units. And you know our disappointment when we learned that Hasbro didn’t include two of the premium BB Units from the Disney Droid Factory line. These BB Units don’t split in half, and they don’t have the weighted ball inside of them that keeps them upright. No, these particular BB Units are from The Force Awakens and Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Two-Packs sets that came with other figures. These figures are admittedly disappointments. But if you’re looking for quick background BB Units, then these two-packs will work out nicely for you. Hasbro opted for simple paint operations this time around, but they’ve opened up the palette to many different colors, including neon red, purple, white, blue, etc. Each droid features a leveled bottom to stand upright unassisted, but that also limits how you can display them into your collection. In the BB Units [White/Purple] set, collectors receive a black and white BB Unit that looks very much like a Holstein cow. And it comes with the flattened dome. The second BB Unit is a purple and black version of BB-8. The droids interact nicely together and add more color to the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost lineup, and for many, these will be useful additions for collections. We’d like to see less Sequel Trilogy-related characters in this product line. We know that collectors would have much preferred to see three other Astromech Droids added to the line instead of six random BB Units. And we anticipate that the BB Units packs will collect on store shelves as well. Hopefully, Hasbro has big plans for the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line and that many other Astromech Droids are planned for the line. Droid variety is nice, but they shouldn’t have gone with a 50% Astromech Droids and 50% BB Units to launch this line of Droid Factory/Build A Droid figures. And coincidentally, the BB Units don’t fall under the latter categories either. Hasbro is disappointingly blurring the lines and muddying the waters of a potentially successful sub-line of 3.75” action figures.
