The character BB-8, the new droid from Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, has already reached iconic status. Ever since he rolled across our screen in the first teaser, and especially after he rolled out on stage at Star Wars Celebration last April, fans have been wondering when we might be able to own our own BB-8. It looks like the answer will be "Force Friday," aka September 4th when all the The Force Awakens merchandise will be made available. The team over at Rebelscum.com got word from one of their readers that they had spotted the hotly anticipated remote control BB-8 toy at Target. Check out the packaging below,
In addition you can check out this video of the toy in action, courtesy of Paul Murphy in the Everything BB-8 Facebook group, here.
It looks like this will be one of the must have toys this Force Friday and Holiday season.
