Star Wars BB-8 Droid Sphero Unboxing
It seemed appropriate to end #ForceFriday by saving the best for last. The Star Wars BB-8 Droid by Sphero was blowing up the internet late Thursday as the press embargo was lifted finally allowing us to show off all the cool new Star Wars toys. This little droid is pretty darn awesome. While we ‘know’ how the head stays on, it’s amazing to actually see it in action, to see it look around the room, and also see it running for it’s life as it’s chased by the dog. While opening the box, it felt like I was opening up a new Apple iPhone! It’s very well made, with and extra little box for paperwork and USB charging cable. While $150 is a bit tough to stomach for a toy, especially with an $90 version that does not work with a smart phone, it is clearly going to be the hot toy of the year. While I’m sure first shipments have all but run dry, we are sure there are more on the way, especially as things get closer to the movie release and Christmas.
Enjoy the pics, with an extra sneak peak of the underside of the head for those that will ask. And yes, it is magic.
