BB-8 is a ball-shaped droid that is said to hold the key to the story. The cute appearance of running while rolling with the rolls released in the trailer is becoming more popular.
The "Force Awakening Remote Control BB-8", which will be on sale this time, reproduces the "rotational action" and "sound" just like the "BB-8" that appears in the movie. It is said that the head is stable and does not fall while rotating and moving around the spherical part under the main body.
Operation uses the four buttons on the controller. The two buttons on the left move forward and backward, and the two buttons on the right rotate the head left and right. When you rotate your head, it recognizes the direction you turned your head as the front and moves forward and backward, so you can move BB-8 freely by using the four buttons properly. It also has a function to move the body and make an electronic sound on the spot if the controller is not operated for a while.
It can be purchased at toy specialty stores nationwide, toy stores such as department stores and mass retailers, Internet shops, and the official TOMY shopping site. The suggested retail price is reasonable at 9,800 yen (excluding consumption tax). For those who have refrained from purchasing the BB-8 toy radio control by SPHERO because it is expensive, isn't it easy to get started at this price?
