Discussing all things BB-8 in this video, I unbox a whole bunch of BB-8 toys on the market and give a full Star Wars toy unboxing and review. The video includes toys from Disney, Hasbro, Bladez and Sphero all based at different audiences and with different price ranges.

A full conclusive review including the more obscure “driving it down the stairs” test, but hey, you have to be sure, right? All the links to where you can find each toy are below.

If you’re a fan of BB-8 and the Star Wars Franchise then make sure you check out my complete build of a lifesize BB-8 that moves, lights up, makes noises and soon will have moving panels and extra effects.

Links about Sphero, Disney, and how the stage and movie BB-8s were really built at Pinewood:

Sphero has also built a ‘life-sized BB-8’ that has been on display in Sydney, but it cannot move and the article quotes the Sphero CEO as saying – “The creature shop built the props, and they built the ones that move around…”

Info on the Sphero toy stating “Sphero isn’t involved with the creation of the larger versions of the droid you may have seen at events and may come to Disney’s theme parks…”


No MacArthur grant yet. But while I’m still waiting by the phone for that call, maybe you might patronise me with your Patreon-age. Or, if you’re all out of digital cash just comment on one of my hilarious Instagram pics, pop me a Tweet or generally yell in my direction.


Huge thanks to my patrons, without whom my standard of living would drastically decline. Like, inside out Farm Foods bag decline. Plus a very special shoutout to Aleph Objects, Inc who keep me in LulzBot 3D printers and support me via Patreon.

Why not join my community, who are mostly made up of actual geniuses. There’s a Facebook group and everything:


Former toy designer, current YouTube maker and general robotics, electrical and mechanical engineer, I’m a fan of doing it yourself and innovation by trial and error. My channel is where I share some of my useful and not-so-useful inventions, designs and maker advice. Iron Man is my go-to cosplay, and 3D printing can solve most issues – broken bolts, missing parts, world hunger, you name it.

XRobots is the community around my content where you can get in touch, share tips and advice, and more build FAQs, schematics and designs are also available.


The majority of the music and SFX used in my videos is from Epidemic Sound
