Assembling a BB-8

A little while back, we went to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland. I had wanted to assemble a BB-9 unit from the Droid Depot. When we first visited in June, they ran out of BB-9 parts. This time I asked first and was advised that those were not sold out. That turned out to be incorrect. So a BB-8 droid it was.

The process is fun and in the end you get a Bluetooth-Enabled, remote control droid. They respond to the environment while in Galaxy’s Edge via that Bluetooth connection, but I can’t see bringing the droid back to see it interact again. I’m still angling for a BB-9 though, and I think they respond to other droids which would be pretty cool.

Thumb’s up, would assemble again.
