I've never purchased one of the interactive droids. That said, I always regretted not buying the previous version that was released a decade or so ago.

I'm not sold on the new color scheme on this version and maybe it's because I'm a cheapskate but I like getting access to all the features at once instead of having to purchase personality chips after the fact.
