It is not official toy, it is my first prototype test of remote controlled BB8 toy from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" directed by J.J.Abrams. It is made of plastic ball with 2 servos (one continous) inside. the dome is hold by magnets. More details will follow soon, so please subscribe if you want to be updated. This is the test of the concept piece for full scale animatronic model.

More details of this project will be here on my blog as soon as I progress it. You can already find there blueprint of all 6 panels to save you time on your own custom creation based on this character or as a start for your own replica:

You can already buy the official licensed by Disney toy produced by Sphero. It costed 150usd but its sold out everywhere and you can get it from amazon or ebay for around 200usd now. It will be Christmas hit, so buy it when you can, it will be hard later.
The cheaper and readily available RC toy is produced by Hasbro but it looks like its less stable, but it looks good and should give some fun.

You can check my previous finished custom models on http://themodelmaker.net
