This model has a BB-8 body in red and silver, with a BB-9E head in white and red. It's cute - it looks like a cherry tomato with a head. Like the others it has a flat bottom so it won't roll away, plus a barbell peg between the head and the body for two moving pieces. The red ball has a silver pattern that matches the blue ball droid, just with different colors - it works well. This would've made a great holiday series droid, too!
The head is the same as the other one - I tried to find obvious differences but was unable to do so. It's a really cool pattern and I guess they look like siblings, or Player 1 and Player 2, or Bub and Bob. He's got a black dot in a big red eye dish, and seems like something you should see in the back of a Sandcrawler. Or maybe doing admin work in a base somewhere.
I like this droid, but I like colorful robots - I hope Hasbro cranks out some other ones, maybe clear, maybe orange, or maybe really grimy. We got hundreds of Astromechs, so it's nice to see the BB family expand a bit more - there are still other unmade droid heads from the movies and cartoons to explore, too! I'd say this is a neat set, but as always get the colors you like at a fair price if you can.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Target.
