    Ok, there are members interesting for the dome of BB 8 (made out of smooth cast hard plastic urethane resine). The dome is 11" long, that size is for a a sphere of 20". The total height should be about 26" (66.5 cm) with the sphere.
    This run is for one BB-8 Dome in kit form only
    One half acrylic sphere painted with vht nite shade
    and extra One half acrylic sphere clear for spare
    the antennas are not include but I will explain how I made them, we use a regular plastic pen cover for the antennas.
    Price is $225 shipping include to USA for international shipping add $30

    All preorders have to be paid full in advanced and like we said before it will take about 5 to 6 weeks to make it and delivery.

    Will these be rotocast? I understand that there may be small variances from cast to cast, but could you present an estimate on the wall thickness and weight?

    Any plans for a run of hyper-light fibreglass domes?

    Thickness around 1/8", weigh about 3 pounds. About light fiberglass I don't recommend it cause it can crack very easy if the dome fall .

    Wow, that's impressive.

    If I can come up with the money, I'm interested...however, right now cash is tight. Hopefully I can get in before the run is over.

    would it be possible to just get the "eye" part (resin cast) and the acrylic dome from you? I have a bb8 "head" dome but need the eye parts.
