STAR WARS-Inspired Pins Feature BB-8 Living His Best Life

When BB-8 first made his appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens it was the first time we had seen a spherical astromech, and it was a wonder to behold. Watching him cruise across the desert planet, the round droid quickly became a fan favorite and he instantly became an artists’ muse.

Just when you think that options are limited for certain droid body types, BB-CRE8 comes up with a series of pin designs featuring BB-8 mashups you have to see to believe.

Enamel pins showcase the domed droid dressed to impress in Dapper Day attire, Batman cosplay, and even Disneybound outfits. When it comes to food mashups, BB-8 fits the bill as creative designs transform him into everything from a BBQ grill, to a donut, a cinnamon roll, and more. Clearly his frame lends itself to the more circular foods.

In addition to fabulous mashups, movable pins are a thing now and what’s better than a rolling droid? A rolling droid with a hidden porg! The lovable friend-not-food makes an appearance in a sliding pin that opens up to reveal a little peek-a-porg inside.

After the success of their pin trade, BB-CRE8 is also branching out into fashion, with a line of tongue in cheek items that play off skate and sneaker culture like their Supreme Leader shirts, a hilarious mashup of the popular Supreme brand and of course Snoke, Supreme Leader of the First Order.

Their latest fashion foray is Star Wars socks. Everyone needs a good pair of socks and these spotlight galactic battles, lightsabers, and that very special droid rolling along through Jakku—ironic considering the droid is without feet.
