The black central eye is augmented by a white circle, a couple of red boxes, and some minimal detailing on the back. It's pretty simple, but the shape is good enough that you probably won't notice. The plastic metallic swirl does most of the heavy lifting in terms of bringing this figure to life, which gives it a look that's probably more metallic than if it were actual metal. Articulation is standard modern Droid Factory fare, with removable legs and dome. You get about five moving parts in all, with the exposed mechanisms under the dome all matching blue. We've slid a bit since Hasbro started doing these, silver and other colors under the dome really did add a lot of detail while bringing these to "life" as real fake space appliances. At least the BB unit cores still have some color... and a few colors of paint for added interior detail.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from my pal Shannon.
