So we're starting to model this cute little guy seen in the 2 most recent trailers. I'm imagining him being about 4 inches in size with a separate head and body. The body would have a strong earth magnet in it as would the head. The head would be able to move around freely on the body.

I'd like to make a base/stand too and maybe do some magnet magic too.

I can't see BB-8 being able to fully rotate while the head stays up, but I think we can get some cool movements going on. I'll know more as we get into prototyping (assuming there's enough interest).



My Version:



Here's the kit(s) below, minus the clear eye piece that I will also include.

Interested, although in the UK, so hoping postage will be available.

Interested

Assume when you say 6 inches you're just talking of the head and not the full droid?

hehe - I'll be making the WHOLE droid (plus maybe a base or stand) and my plan is to make it about 6 inches tall. I'm playing with some concepts today as far as how the head will move, etc

If you find someone making one of these 1:1 for less than $100 let me know :lol

Lol Right?!?! At that price I am sure this whole forum will know! I was thinking just $100 for the little head, but rereading the first post again it makes more sense. Or is that just the coffee finally kicking in? Lol
