The loyal astromech droid will delight collectors and kids with his impressive size – over 16 inches tall – and built-in voice recognition. Set Hero Droid BB-8 to “Follow Me” mode and it will roll beside fans just as loyally as it would follow Rey or Poe! Additionally, users can control BB-8 with the enhanced 2-stick remote via RC control. BB-8 also has the ability to come when called and reacts to key phrases and names from Star Wars: The Force Awakens™. Hero Droid BB-8 by Spin Master will roll into toy stores this fall just in time for Star Wars: The Last Jedi™.

Hero Droid BB-8 is the most authentic BB-8 and a “must-have” for Star Wars fans of all ages because of its lifelike scale and realistic interactivity.

Features:
Impressive 16” height (19” w/ antennas)
Incredible “Follow Me” mode allows BB-8 to become a droid companion
Direct BB-8 with voice commands
Enchanted 2-stick remote to control BB-8 in full RC control
Authentic interactive light FX and “Talking” sound FX
Age: 6+
MSRP: $229.99 USD

I can see this, paired with the Rubies' Rey and Poe Dameron costumes, being a very popular choice for this Hallowe'en. Stay tuned for our in-depth, kid friendly product review - coming soon.
