We still have just over a week to go until the hotly anticipated Dec. 18 debut of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS in theaters worldwide. No better time for SIdeshow Collectibles and Hot Toys to roll out these sixth-scale collectibles honoring two new faces to the saga, Rey and her own faithful droid companion, BB-8.
We just can’t help but feel that either the legendary Luke Skywalker or his infamous late father Anakin could sympathize with how the unforgiving desert planet Jakku hardened Rey into a cutthroat scavenger. She’s resilient, bright, and now, she has a rolling-and-tumbling droid by her side watching her back. It’s an impressive likeness of actress Daisy Ridley, featuring two interchangeable looks with meticulous hair sculpture, carefully tailored clothing, lovingly crafted accessories, and a newly developed head sculpt.
Her hexagonal figure stand comes emblazoned with the proud emblem of the Resistance.
As for BB-8, the newest heroic droid to roam the galaxy on an unexpected adventure stands atop the desert-themed base beside Rey with a self-balancing mechanism and light-up LED eyes. Like Rey, it’s a carefully crafted and highly accurate likeness worthy of a place of honor on any fan’s shelf.
