BB-8 Droid: The Coolest Star Wars Toy Ever
Step aside, R2-D2. Now that anyone can own a tiny working version of The Force Awakens‘ BB-8 droid that can roll and balance all by itself, R2-D2 may be relegated to the closet along with the Cabbage Patch dolls.
BB-8 has something unlike any other robot – an adaptive personality that changes as you play. Based on your interactions, BB-8 will show a range of expressions and even perk up when you give voice commands. Set it to patrol and watch your Droid explore autonomously, make up your own adventure and guide BB-8 yourself, or create and view holographic recordings.
Measuring 4.5 inches tall (head included) and 2.9 inches wide, it looks just like the droid from the movie, albeit much smaller.
The head, about the size of a golf ball, is magnetically attached to its sealed body. With inductive charging (so no connectors to break or get dirty), the BB8 is as rugged as it is cute.
