Star Wars has been a big franchise for many years now, and with the recent trailer announcing the new few movies fans have been up in arms about two aspects from the trailer. Firstly the cross guard light saber, a fun little addition with a dark red blade that, if you slipped, would have you losing a finger or two. The second feature everyone wanted to know about was the droid. The droids were always a big thing in Star Wars (“These are not the droids you’re looking for”), with C3p0 and R2D2 making appearances in all the films, with cute lovable beeps and the addition (in a Doctor Who flying Dalek like fashion) that adding jet boosters to a wheel based droid is not cheating. The latest droid went a step further, containing a single ball with a tiny R2D2 semi circle type head atop. Well, now you can buy one.
Available as of Friday, the BB-8 Drone can be purchased from Best Buy, Apple retail stores and Sphero’s own website (don’t worry the device is compatible with both Android and Apple devices). Coming in at $149.99 (£98.28 approximately) the droid is anything but cheap, but after being created by Sphero, a company known for their ball based drones, you can guarantee that you’ll have hours of fun running the thing around your house.
With hours of fun and a nice piece of Star Wars meromelia added to your house, what Star Wars fan wouldn’t want one?
