Those Disney exclusive BB droids are pretty amazing! I am really curious about this wobble feature. I didn't realize they had a rounded base unlike the Hasbro versions.

The wobble feature is interesting in that the droids have rocking motion with the slightest touch. This is better than the Hasbro static version, which does seem more like an accessory than a figure, for the most part. These BB units are weighted in the bottom like the Sphero BB-8. BBs wobble, but they don't fall down.

Three Walmarts, 3 Roses each. Everything else, gone to the scalpers. Ladies and gentlemen, your new Constable Zuvio. There is no reason for this figure to be in this wave.

I'd disagree. She's supposed to be a fairly large character in the next film. Therefore, she needs to have an SA version (imo). Plus she has a very basic outfit that would let someone army build some resistance techs with a simple head swap. I'd argue that there's no need for an FO executioner in an exclusive wave when its simply a repaint with a new weapon. At a premium and exclusive? Thats the bigger travesty

Agreed completely. The Zuvio comparison is ridiculous. She'll do fine.

I think it's great that this character was released so early. She's going to be a major part of the new movie and I'm always excited to get something new and interesting than just a variation on what we had before. As someone who got seriously sick of endless trooper repaints during the Prequel/Clone Wars era, nothing interests me less than yet another slightly modified trooper.


I have no walmarts in my area so I can't comment at all on her availability in the black series. But her basic figure is selling as briskly as any of the other characters with the exception of Luke. So here's to Rose.

And lets not forget that we got a ton of Trooper repaints with TFA and Rogue One as well. Hell, most of the time they didn't even bother to do a repaint, and just added a different color plastic shoulder pad on the trooper.

I like the Rose figure. The sculpt is perfect, the articulation is great, and the paint scheme is really well done. I'd give this figure 9/10 - only because I think they did a better job on the face/head on the 5poa version as compared to this.

I agree that she's not as hot of a figure as Luke, Stormtrooper and Praetorian Guard, but she's still a kickass figure. I think we could see some pegwarming like Finn however, but not as bad as Zuvio (and hopefully not quite as terrible as Finn).

Oh, and she's an army builder too in a sense. Easy head swap --- AND soft torso, so you can pop those arms out easily for customizing. So that helps right there in sales (soft torso is how ALL the figures should be made).

That being said - Hasbro probably would have done retailers a favor if she was just 2x per case instead of 3, and inserted another Praetorian Guard.

:wink:

Agreed. Behold, the perfect Rose. Black Series Rose with the 5POA head -
