I've been cautiously enthusiastic about the Star Wars line: the amount of detail on this figures is impressive, but the fact that they have the same multi-piece construction and magnetic base as my Hawkeye figure worried me. But then a sale + a gift card overruled my caution and I brought this one home.
The PVC figures are 1/10 scale and are labelled as a "model kit" rather than as a statue or figurine, which I found interesting. While the Poe figure does require assembly, BB-8's head and body are held together via magnet, which worries me (I can imagine it falling off and getting lost easily).

BB-8 comes in three pieces.
Poe comes in five pieces.

The magnets on the base of each figure seem to stick to the base
better than the Hawkeye figure's did.

The level of detail is wonderful, but the angle of his head
makes him awkward to photograph from normal angles.

While I don't know that I would have picked them up at retail price (this set is generally listed around $90USD), I certainly can't complain.
Do you have any Kotobukiua figures? And are they in solid or multi-piece style? I'd love to hear about your experiences!
