Star Wars: the Force Awakens BB-8 advert shows off working droid toy

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits cinema screens in December, and no doubt fans will be purchasing some of the many toys that are becoming available. But one toy will undoubtedly be amongst the top of a fans wish list.

That toy is BB-8, the ball droid first seen in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, and now BB-8 has become a bit of a reality as Sphero has created a working BB-8 toy, and has put out an advert for the app-enabled droid, which you can view below.



The blurb that goes along with the BB-8 toy commercial says… “Meet BB-8, the app-enabled droid that’s as authentic as it is advanced. BB-8 has something unlike any other robot – an adaptive personality that changes as you play. Based on 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.”

Have to say I’m not usually impressed with toys from movies, but this cute little droid toy from Star Wars: The Force Awakens will no doubt catch the attention of avid Star Wars fans across the globe, although you will have to set aside a bit of cash as the BB-8 toy droid has a price tag of $149.99.
