Now you can own a life size version of BB-8.

Star Wars fans have an interesting new remote-controlled BB-8 droid to look forward to by the end of the year. Spin Master debuted the new RC droid at the NY Toy Fair. While it is not the first RC BB-8 droid to hit the market, it appears to be one of the best recreations of the droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

BB-8 is controlled via a dual-stick joystick, similar to a PS4 or Xbox One controller. The droid occasionally acts on his own, but will follow your movements for the most part.

In comparison to the Sphero BB-8, the new BB-8 is much larger and packed with cool features. It looks like an accurate representation of the real BB-8 from the Star Wars film. BB-8 responds to your voice and expresses emotions based on its environment.

The droid will release by the end of the year for $230. While that may cause sticker shock for some, it’s absolutely worth it for fans with the excellent play features, life-like size, and authentic detailing.
