BLOG: Bandai – Star Wars 1/12 BB-8 & R2-D2 Plastic Models

Bandai - Star Wars 1/12 BB-8 & R2-D2 Plastic Model Bandai Hobby has updated their Star Wars special site with a couple more kits from The Force Awakens. One of these is the 1/12 BB-8 & R2-D2 set. Bandai probably figured that they can’t release BB-8 as its own kit and bundled it with R2-D2 — which already got released together with R5-D4 earlier.

BB-8 can supposedly do the whole lower sphere rolling thing though an armature that’s connected from the bottom of the head unit to the bottom of the display base. So taking pictures would require some skill to hide the said armature. R2-D2 is pretty much the same one as before except that it will be molded in gloss injection colors.
