#61: Star Wars The Black Series - Rey (Jakku) and BB-8

As the other main protagonist for The Force Awakens, Rey is the second numbered figure for the line. This outfit is the one she's wearing in all the promotional material, so until the movie comes out, it's the "iconic" look for her. It's not as good a likeness as the Finn figure, but otherwise looks good. The paint on her lips is not substantially placed enough, making her mouth look small. I was mostly looking for the figure with the best paint on the locks of hair on the sides of her face. Her only accessory is a staff.

Also included is the real star of the new movie, BB-8. BB-8 is weighted so it (I'm not sure how BB-8 is gendered) can stand in place pretty well without rolling around or tipping over. The head is articulated, so you can actually pose it leaning over. I'm glad that BB-8 is small enough to be packed in with a regular figure, and not sold separately like R2-D2.
