Today’s review is BB-8, Unkar’s Thug & Jakku Scavenger 3-pack (considered as a 2-pack)! It’s part of the desert assortment of the first wave of 2-packs and includes the 3 characters mentioned above plus a pistol, a staff and an accessory for kids to capture BB-8.
Let’s start with BB-8, he is 1 POA, his head can move in some directions. The paint apps are pretty good and the size is accurate to the movie, this pack is the only way to get the little new droid (unless you want to buy the new Millenium Falcon at 69$/99€).
The Jakku Scavenger is actually Teedo (we can see his movie picture on Entertainment Weekly he is with his beast the luggabeast) it’s actually too bad, they release him in this pack while they could have release him with his beast, Hasbro missed a good opportunity here but never mind. The figure has a design that fits in the universe of Jakku – the desert. His feet are a bit weird and makes him a bit difficult to stand but not impossible. He is 5POA figure with a ball-jointed head.
The Unkar’s thug is a 5POA figure too, he has a ball-jointed head too but this articulation is useless on him as he can’t move his head due to the collar of the jacket. The design fits too with the Jakku universe. It is interesting to notice except Constable Zuvio, all the aliens released from Jakku in figure have so far a mask to hide their face, I think it gives how hard the weather conditions must be on this planet, probably even worse than on Tatooine!
