Toyguide Update: BB-8 (Holiday Edition) Mini Bust (2016 PGM Exclusive)

holiday_bb8_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the  2016 Premier Guild Exclusive BB-8 (Holiday Edition) Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS: Excellent sculpting and deco, and the lights are a perfectly festive touch. LED lights are bright and the button batteries are included (preinstalled). 3 lighting modes give the collector options, although I suspect most will choose the solid (non-flashing) setting.

CONS:  Must be a PG Member to purchase ($120) which will probably drive the after market price higher in the future.  Fragile antennae could easily break if not handled properly.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery (and our YouTube page for a video) to judge for yourself whether this bust is worth adding to your collection.
