Hasbro Star Wars The Black Series 6″ Rey (Jakku) & BB-8 Review

Hasbro Star Wars The Black Series 6 inch Rey and BB-8 01

September 4th marked the launch of all The Force Awakens toys and one of our favorite releases was the 6″ Kylo Ren figure from Hasbro. Rey and BB-8 joins Kylo Ren, Finn, First Order Stormtrooper, and Chewbacca that are all part of the first wave. Wave 2 was also released and includes Poe Dameron, Constable Zuvio, Captain Phasma, and Guavian Enforcer. Look for all of these figures at your local stores now or at the links below.

Availability: September 2015

Sculpt & Paint:

Rey is an all-new sculpted figure and a new character introduced into the Star Wars Universe for The Force Awakens. Her outfit is made out of plastic and has a long scarf wrapped around her under garments. tightened around her waist by a brown belt with a bag attached to it. Her facial sculpt features rosy cheeks, and a plain design with brown textured hair in three pony tails in the back.

Her staff accessory includes a strap, and is either a blaster of some sort.

BB-8 is a new take on the astromech droids like R2-D2 and has a sphere body with a smaller round head with two antenna’s on top and a ball-jointed neck. The design is interesting and the droid seems to have a big personality from what we’ve seen with the RC as well as the display at Target Stores right now in the toy aisle. BB-8 is painted in a while, silver, and orange deco with some great sculpted detail. It is tricky to get him to stand up right as the sphere is weighted at the bottom, and the neck has to be adjusted to get him to stand.

Articulation:

ball-jointed head, ball-jointed hinged shoulders, ball-jointed elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, waist rotation, ball-socket hips, swivel-hinged knees, hinged ankles.

Accessories:

Staff, BB-8 droid.

Overall:

Rey and BB-8 are detailed and nice looking figures that fans will want as part of the 6″ line. We would have added some more facial details to better capture the likeness of the actor, and to remind Hasbro that they should look at what NECA Toys is doing with 6″ figures like their Terminator 2 and Terminator Genisys lines. More details on these Black Series figures are necessary.

Highly Recommended.
