Commentary: This nameless BB-9-style BB Unit is a gem. The body looks like blueprints, the head looks like R5-D4 - it's clean, and it looks like an accident! You might recognize the mold from the twice-released BB-9E [FOTD #2,446] which first premiered in The Last Jedi and, as far as I know, doesn't appear anywhere else yet. Since the packaging has it as part of Galaxy's Edge, which seems to be a large collection of elements, who am I to argue?
I would argue these guys are probably worth the money - BB droids were previously used mostly as accessories. You get one or two full-size figures with a BB (or two) before, so two for $10 is certainly reasonable. Hasbro and Star Wars don't typically do a lot of bright colors, so it's a nice change of pace to see something like this - it's different, it's fun, and it seems right at home in your dioramas.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Target.
