"Probably the best thing ever invented"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If I had to chose between owning this droid and having friends, id quite happily kick all my friends to the curb. BB-8 is something else entirely. It is the greatest Star Wars collectible ever released. This morning I woke up happy knowing that I get to chase my dogs around the house with him again. An absolute must have for any Star Wars Fan.

"Tiny but super cute droid"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

BB-8 controllable droid is pretty much the best of the new Star Wars toys. Ordered it on force Friday and had it dropped off in the evening. Really good service from mighty ape and very pleased with it. The app is great and you'll have lots of fun.

Only downsides so far is that the wheels under the head of BB-8 will pick up lots of fluffy. Works best on hard surfaces or short close weave carpet.

"It is very impressive"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Bought one and love it. Works well and love the exploring mode.

The holigraphic messaging is cool and turns his head in the right direction when playing message.

It is also highly detailed with great packaging.

It maybe not cheap, but is very cool, has more features than Sphero.

Over the years, the magic of Star Wars™ has always lived on screen and in our imaginations. Thanks to our advancements in technology, we’ve made it possible to bring a new part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens™ into your home.

Meet BB8 – the app-enabled Droid™ that's as authentic as it is advanced. BB-8 has something unlike any other robot – an adaptive personality that changes as you play. Based on your interactions, BB-8 will show a range of expressions and even perk up when you give voice commands. Set it to patrol and watch your Droid explore autonomously, make up your own adventure and guide BB-8 yourself, or create and view holographic recordings.

It’s now possible to explore the galaxy with your own trusty Astromech Droid by your side. BB-8 is more than a toy – it’s your companion.
