Unboxing The Star Wars BB-8 Hero Droid

The Star Wars BB-8 Hero Droid from Disney could be the hot toy this Christmas, especially after Star Wars fans get another chance to see the personality driven droid in action in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which opens December 15th.

The Disney Blog was sent a droid to review so we decided to make an unboxing video and then put the droid through its paces for a full review:

Hero Droid BB-8 has impressive features:

  • Hero Droid BB-8 comes to life with an impressive height of over 16 inches (19 inches with antenna), voice and sound responses, and a motion sensor.
  • Enjoy full control of your BB-8 with multiple voice commands, 360-degree remote control movement, and unique Follow Me mode which allows Hero Droid BB-8 to roll along beside you just like in the film!
  • Hero Droid BB-8 rolls right out of Star Wars: The Last Jedi with authentic lights and sound effects, true to film animations. The droid looks, moves, and sounds just like what you see on screen.
  • Star Wars Hero Droid BB-8 is for ages 6+. Requires 1 400 mAH and 1 Ni-MH 1800 mAH battery (included), and 3 AAA batteries (not included).

Any Star Wars fan will enjoy having their own adventures with X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron’s intrepid astromech BB-8. You can find it online at retailers like Amazon or order it direct from Spinmaster. MSRP is $230.

While we were sent this droid to review, all the opinions in the story are ours and we received no other compensation for this article.
