The head is cast in clear red, painted gold with a big black central eye. It pops nicely and does a good job showing the sculpted detail of BB-8's dome, which generally is eaten alive by the dirty paint on these figures. The body is clear red with gold highlights, and when you crack it open there's a weighted ball inside that's grey with gold accents. The candy-like red plastic obfuscates the gold painted details, but you can see a bit of the shine peek through in the thinner red plastic areas. I don't get to use this word often in this column, but it's very pretty.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from my pal Shannon. Thanks Shannon! Disney tends to make these guys as seasonal special editions, so get it now if you want one.
