If you’re up to date with your Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens trivia, you’ll know who BB-8 is. But just for a refresher: he’s the cute-as-pie astromech droid who belongs to Resistance pilot Poe Dameron (played by Oscar Isaac in the upcoming film). And in case you were thinking how nice it would be to have one of your very own…
ThinkGeek has you covered: the life-size plush BB-8 is here! Well, almost – you can pre-order it now, and then receive it in December, along with the release of the movie. This droid is two feet tall, 18-inches in diameter, and weighs a whopping five and a half pounds. Yeah, it doesn’t roll, move or talk like the movie version, but hey, you can totally curl up with this little guy at night. It’s made of polyester fibers and plastic pellets, and you can even throw it in the washing machine when it gets dirty. Oh, and it’s weighted so that the head mostly stays upright, because no one wants an upside-down droid, right?
Now, Sphero’s version of BB-8 was pretty cool as well, but it’s smaller and definitely not as cuddly. How could you resist a soft toy of your favorite sci-fi droid? It’s perfect (and safe) for the whole family to enjoy.
