From the moment he was first seen in the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, BB-8 has captured many an imagination. Having been there for his first reveal on stage at Star Wars Celebration, I can tell you that he’s a very cool, very real little ball of awesome and everyone wanted to know how Lucasfilm built him.
While there aren’t any official guides on how to make your own BB-8, more than one person has tried to create their own. This super extensive video guide by prop and robot builder James Burton of XRobots.co.uk will give you the best information yet on how to make one yourself.
If you do make one, can you make an extra for me?
