The new dome is the highlight, with teal plastic and a light paint wipe that brings out the dome's many details. I'm not super familiar with the new design as of my writing this, so I love it and assume it's accurate. The orange "face" looks great, the recessed eye is a good look, and a few panels around the sides and back look designed to be removed for other plug-in bits down the road. Neat! There's a darker teal band around the neck and the top of the dome too, plus other painted grime, vents, and other details. It's so nice to have a new dome, it makes it easy to recommend this set to any droid fanatic. (A similar dome with a different body was also used in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
I like this figure! It looks like a weird retro appliance you could find at Space Sears before I was born. Other than the black eye being a bit off-center, it's a well-made figure and you'd be happy to blow $13 or so on it. It's part of a $45 set with 3 other very compelling droids, so I'd say just get it if your budget allows.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from my pal Shannon. Thanks, Shannon!
