BB8 1Force Friday is upon us and, following the deluge of epic that was the Star Wars Live Unboxing stream (that ended this morning), there’s been a lot of internet fervor over one item in particular. Sphero’s BB-8 working, rolling, talking, drivable, patrolable robot will be IN STORES AT MIDNIGHT!!! That’s right…you can own your own working BB-8. I know I keep saying, but I can’t get over the fact that I CAN OWN MY OWN WORKING BB-8!!! Check out the video from Sphero below, and we’ll reconvene after the jump.

Pretty damn cool, right?! I honestly don’t think there’s been a piece of licensed Star Wars merch that I’ve wanted more (besides the interactive RD-D2, which patrols Nrdly HQ on the reg). Starting tomorrow (Force Friday, or September 4 for normal people), you can own your very own BB-8 Sphero for $149 USD. It will be available in Apple Stores, Best Buy, and Sphero’s own website.

Are YOU excited for BB-8? Let us know in the comments!!

Geof started life as a scrawny little nerd. His first experience with Star Wars was at age 6 with Return of the Jedi, and he never looked back. He’s a fan of indie comics, anime, Pokemon/Zelda/Nintendo, JRPG’s, hard scifi, the occasional fantasy, metal/video game soundtracks, and Tim Burton films. Fall is his favorite season, due in no small part to Halloween and Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
