Sphero BB-8: Get them while you can!

If you still haven’t heard, there’s a new droid in town and his name happens to be BB-8. Jumping from the new Star Wars film from J.J. Abrams, BB-8 got the crowd at Star Wars Celebration last April into fan-crazed-frenzy! People started asking for a toy replica of the said rolling droid and lo-and-behold, Sphero, the guys that specializes on rolling app-enabled robots got on the case.

We got up-close and personal with the adorable little critter yesterday at another Sphero partnership event with a local telecommunications giant. Here are some of the highlights:

The droid still retails for roughly Php 12,500.00 but now, there are more venues for people to pre-order BB-8 aside from SM. That’s always a good thing, too, because despite the price (and the limited availability) it seems that these things keep just keep getting sold-out!

Expect your kid (or the kid in you) to be throwing the tantrums if you can’t get a hold of this adorable little droid come Christmas time! Pre-orders are now on-going and if you’ve been dying to get your hands on this, I suggest you head over to the Greenbelt 3 branch and sign-up. BB-8 rolls to your homes come November 2015.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes alive on the big screen by December 2015.
