This Diamond-Encrusted, Golden BB-8 Is Worth $135,000 [Video]


BB-8 has clearly let success go to his head. It looks like he’s spending all his Force Awakens money on a blinged-out upgrade before the movie even premieres.

Actually, Disney and Kay Jewelers teamed up to craft this very sparkly 4-inch BB-8 replica using diamonds and gold for a charitable cause.

It took 600 hours to make, features around 860 diamonds and it weighs a hefty pound and a half. It’s estimated to be worth roughly $135,000, and it will be auctioned off this month, with proceeds going to support St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
