Not as time consuming and rolling and rerolling to make everything the same size... Just wrap the candies with one swipe and roll in your hands, place them on the cake with the "ugly" spot toward the bottom.
Another benefit, especially with the big balls is that it doesn't take nearly as much fondant and doesn't add as much weight. I use gumballs/malted milk balls in my figures as well to make sure the heads stay round and are sized proportionately.
