Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 by Ace Kim

75187 BB-8 won Construction Toy of the Year from this year's Toy Fair awards. It is well deserved and like I said earlier in the post, it belong on the desk of every Star Wars fan, young and old. It looks accurate but there's more to this model than just good looks. If you're exploring how to build geometric shapes out of LEGO, BB-8 would make a great case study into spheres. Even the two play features can teach a few things on moving parts within a model.

Recommendation: meh 4.86 / 5 from 102 reviews

Loved this build, the internals were a bit tricky and I had gone wrong at one point took a few looks at the book then the piece to see how or where I had gone wrong. The outer shell was a bit repetitive as others had said but still enjoyable, it's surprised me sometimes how these Lego engineers do it I would never of got it if I was sat with a big tub of Lego and had to design the first! Included a picture of wall-e with bb-8! Hope they know the rules for chess!

Customer Video Review Length:: 3:06 Mins This is a great lego set with nice internal gears for movement that any Star Wars fan will love. It took my 10 year old son about 8 hours to assemble it and he only needed my help for 2 pages and that was minor stuff. It's a collector's item set so it includes a nice display stand and a minifig of BB8. Please view the video (that he made himself) showing the features of this Lego set and will show you the scale of the set.

Recommendation: yes 4.6 / 5 by Graham

Perhaps the reason 75187 BB-8 is such an enjoyable experience, both as a build and as a completed model, is that character sculptures come along so rarely in the LEGO Star Wars theme. If the execution is as perfect as it is in this case every time, then it really is worth the wait. If you buy only one LEGO set from the Star Wars: The Last Jedi range, then buy this one – BB-8 stole the show in The Force Awakens, and now the plucky droid does the same in the LEGO Star Wars 2017 line-up.

This is a truly fantastic set. The spherical shape has been rendered very effectively and I love the detailed tool bay discs, each of which features a unique design, just as in the movie. The model looks magnificent on display, particularly since the black stand presents an attractive contrast with the bright white and orange of BB-8, although I think it is equally impressive when standing alone without additional support.

Despite its fairly small size, LEGO BB-8 is full of personality. The “thumbs up" feature is pretty cool, and his wobbly head is downright charming. At $100 for about 1,100 pieces (plus a minifig you probably already have a handful of from other The Force Awakens sets), this really isn't a great parts pack.
