Inside, BB-H20 has a grey and silver core. Outside, it looks a bit like Target's BB-Series Droid [FOTD #2,733] from earlier this year. BB-H20 could be inspired by a holiday sweater or a candy cane, but it's ambiguous. The pattern is unique to this robot, and since red and white is a common droid color scheme there's nothing that would prevent it from looking like it belongs in just about any post-Imperial diorama.
The holiday droid phenomenon is not a bad line-up - were it a run-of-the-mill Hasbro repaint you'd probably buy it and say "hey, cool." At $13 it's not very cool - after tax and shipping, less so - but it's well-executed with nice clean paint lines and a design that doesn't feel out of place, or tacky, when compared to some of the earlier releases. (Or Hasbro's 2020 The Black Series holiday figures.) I'd say this is one of the best ones only because it's subtle, but perhaps it's too subtle - and I was also anticipating a snowman-themed BB-unit. Maybe next year!
Collector's Notes: I got this from ShopDisney.com.
