Has anyone taken this apart and tried putting a heavy weight in the bottom to make it act as a weeble wobble so the legs arent needed?

I LIKE this idea...

I was going to find one of those dog bowl holders and rest it in that... I hate the tripod legs

Well there's certainly enough room for a nice weight right in the bottom! Would also be Too to modify the pop out arm to be a little drawer for the map device to go into.

As far as the weight goes, you would have to put it more towards the battery compartment side, since the head is not exactly in the top center, it's a bit offset, otherwise he wouldnt "sit" with the head directly on top.

I picked up one of these BB-8's at B&M bargains this weekend

Gave it some quick weathering & I'm pretty pleased with it

also gave my big fig R2-D2 a quick going over

Target price matched the Amazon Prime price in case anyone wants to go that way.

I want to do a little light weathering on mine make the details pop. I'm thinking of a wash of watered down light brown acrylic paint.

Here's my nearly finished BB-8. I don't really mind the stands so I'm going to paint those metallic silver and also add a real lighter to the arm instead of the cheap looking thing that it comes with.

Really appreciate the examples and diversity of ' how to ' with these weathering mods . Thanks gang . Only found this thread recently , and wasn't sure where to ask / go . So......

I've just managed to pick up a non - electronic version ( affordable ) , one . Does anyone know if an electronic ' kit ' is available for purchase here or elsewhere ? , and if not , could someone possibly advise what components / leds / boards etc... would be suitable for this project ?

Any help / advice greatly appreciated .
