BB-8 is playful, personable, and true to the Star Wars? galaxy. His unique traits begin to shine the second he is awake. Based on your interactions, BB-8 will show a range of expressions and even perk up when you give voice commands. 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.

DRIVE Slide your finger on the driving pad to guide your Droid. BB-8 will go wherever you point and hold, and he?ll even react to collisions. If you want to see more of his personality, enter the droid commander, choose an icon, and BB-8 will show off a range of expressions.
