Sphero's BB8 is the Star Wars toy that trumps all The Force Awakens toys
Go ahead, Sphero. Just take all our money.
We're willing ready to give it to you at 12:01 a.m. tonight as Force Friday commences and the first wave of merch for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS go up for sale all over the place.
Honestly, there is too much STAR WARS stuff hitting that it is impossible to jump right in and try to get your hands on everything. You can if you have a small fortune at your disposal (that's how much is landing right out of the gate), so most of us are going to have to be picky and choosy about what we aim to secure for ourselves to start our THE FORCE AWAKENS fandom.
Enter Sphero's BB8.
This version of the STAR WARS galaxy's new droid will be app-controlled and run for 150 bucks, not to mention will have an adaptive personality of its own that will change upon how you interact and play with it. BB8 will show a range of expressions as you give voice commands and even has the capacity to explore on its own if you allow it. You can even create holographic recordings which BB8 will then project and... Why am I still writing this piece instead of playing with this thing right now?!
Sphero is being remarkably coy about where exactly you'll be able to find your very own BB8, so be on the look out. Everyone is going to be wanting this, so if you have a chance to get your hands on one, GRAB IT!! Oh, and may the Force be with you.
Force Friday goes into full effect at 12:01 a.m., September 4.
