Having previously been revealed via the Sphero App last month, the Best Buy Exclusive Sphero R2-Q5 has officially been announced and is now available on and will go live and the droid will be for sale (limited quantities) at the Sphero New York Comic Con booth.
R2-Q5™ is an Imperial astromech droid from a galaxy far, far away.... The specialized tech in R2-Q5 is unlike any other astromech droid, staying true to the character trusted with the Emperor’s plans. Control your Droid with your smart device or watch it patrol on its own. R2-Q5’s signature front and rear LED lights are fully functional, and an integrated speaker means all sounds come right from the droid itself.

R2-Q5 is a skilled starship mechanic and intimidating Imperial spy with many features to interact with and explore. Explore the Star Wars™ galaxy, roam iconic ship interiors, and more through augmented reality. Watch R2-Q5 interact with other Star Wars™ App-enabled Droids by Sphero, and view films from the Star Wars saga with R2-Q5 reacting by your side. This special droid has been brought to life thanks to Sphero technology.
