Star Wars: The Force Awakens (also known as Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens) is scheduled for release on December 18, 2015 but already the toys / movie-related merchandise are being previewed fast and furious!
BB-8 was first revealed in the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens on November 28, 2014. BB-8 was an astromech droid who operated approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor. The droid was at one point operating in the desert of the planet Jakku. It had a domed head, similar to that of R2 series astromech droids, with the bulk of its body made up of a ball that the droid rolled on. BB-8 was mostly white, with some silver and orange on its body, as well as a black eye-piece.
Hero Club Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale BB-8 rolling ball movie prop will be made out of ABS and metal. The Package size will be approximately 8 inches H(200mm) X 5 inches W(120mm) X 5 inches D(120mm). Rolling Ball reflects the walking system of the droid in the movie with its head always staying on the top even when you it is rolling and on the move. Check out the video below.
