8D8 is a vintage figure that oddly holds up in modern scenes... It was fairly well done. A little chunky, but really it does hold up fairly nicely against a modern figure at this point.
The modern counterpart is nice, the light pipe is always fun (IMO) and the sculpt is definitely more accurate, thin, detailed. With the basic body super articulated for the Build-A-Droid figure BG-J38 though, this is one I really had hoped we'd see redone with better articulation.
BG's ability to stand, plus be posed doing various gambling things, was a positive for any droid. I would enjoy a new 8D8 though, as well as his weird friend EV-9D9, whose modern figure was kind of worse than her vintage one in a way besides the computer station.
