Robotics company Sphero and #Disney have showcased the BB-9E toy, a seemingly rival bot to the beloved BB-8 of '#Star Wars: The Force Awakens.' Sporting a black and gray design, the bot moves exactly like BB-8 and has a almost identical shape. The new Star Wars The Last Jedi Movie hits the theaters on the 15th of December 2017. Immerse yourself in the Star Wars galaxy.
R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid by Sphero: You can control your very own Rebel Alliance astromech with your smart device, or watch it patrol on its own.
We need to take all of this with a grain of salt, as Lego hasn't announced another massive set in the same way it did the UCS Millennium Falcon.
The kit comes with 20 Droid parts, six Bits and three sticker sheets for a $99.95 suggested retail.
Apart from a almost "life-sized" BB-8 droid - that follows you remotely and otherwise acts like the cute rolling robot - Silver says one hot toy from this year's unveiling is as educational as it is fun.
It does everything the BB-8 version can do, just with an evil colorway and a slightly different head.
In light of Luke making a major comeback, Hamill posted the cover of Hungarian magazine Cinemania Mozimania, where he can be seen in full "Star Wars" regalia, wearing a dark suit and an even darker expression.
While it's unclear what exactly BB-9E does or where he was during The Force Awakens, Star Wars LEGO kits pair him with Kylo Ren. As they unlock new capabilities and level up their Droid Inventor skills, kids can also learn how to create their own custom R2 Units and experiences, combining play with real hands-on learning. Hallmarks will also have limited edition ornaments BB-8 Mug with Sound, Rey Keepsake Ornament, and Praetorian Guard Keepsake Ornament.
One of the new twists is the introduction of Force Link technology, which combines classic toys and wearable tech in a whole new way.
The new droids will be available at Best Buy Canada and Apple on Friday.
