Sphero’s back to making Star Wars toys. To mark the upcoming release of The Last Jedi, the company is introducing a BB-8 counterpart: BB-9E, a dark droid from the new movie. It works in the same way Sphero’s BB-8 toy does; users can drive BB-9E around, watch Star Wars movies with it (the droid doesn’t have a gender yet), and have it patrol an area.

The droid measures 7.3cm huge by means of 9cm tall and weighs approx 223g. As we can see from the images, it flawlessly provides us BB-9E, a black-plated astromech droid inside the provider of the primary Order. In contrast to the BB-8 droid, the BB-9E features a squarer domed head and the sleek black outdoors emits the electricity of the dark aspect of the force. in the meantime, the compact form thing allows it to freely wander on the ground of your private home.
