We haven't seen more than a couple teasers, a trailer, and a few TV spots for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but it already seems clear that BB-8 is going to be a fan favourite alongside R2-D2. But if Sphero's self-balancing BB-8 toy is too rich for your blood, Hasbro's got you covered.
For just $US80 this larger version of BB-8 rolls around just like the Sphero one does, complete with a floating head that always remains on top of the droid's spherical body. But it actually one-ups Sphero's version with built-in sound effects, and an included wireless remote so you don't have to sacrifice your smartphone or tablet every time you want to play with it.
