After inspecting and admiring our new BB-8 and his packaging, we set him up to charge. The head and body are two separate pieces, each with its own battery and power port. It is very important to fully charge Ni-MH batteries so they will perform well and for a long time. The spherical body is charged by a Wall Mount plug and the dome head is charged via USB cable. A wall plug adapter for the USB cable is not included, but you can use a USB Phone wall adapter or plug him into any computer USB port for charging. Once he’s fully charged, he’s ready for assembly. It’s a little tricky aligning the magnets to get the head on securely. If half the magnets are misaligned, the head will be less stable when in motion. A handheld RF remote with dual joysticks is provided to manually control and steer your BB-8. The RF signal strength is superior to the Infrared version used by competitors. You don’t need to point the remote directly at the droid or be within very close proximity for it to perform well. The droid’s spherical body travels around by ‘rolling’ just like the cinematic version, with his half-sphere head perched on top leaning towards the direction of movement. Even priced at $229, our expectations were reasonable. I do not expect a smooth, circular, plastic bodied ‘BB-8’ to have the same control and maneuverability as you would get with a 4 wheeled rubber tire vehicle. BB-8 picks up quite a bit of speed on hardwood floors and this has led to many collisions. Occasionally BB-8's magnetically-attached head has bounced off during impact. We found that BB-8 maneuvers and responds most accurately on short pile carpeting. BB-8 Hero is quite a character, his mannerisms are entertaining, just like in the movie. In ‘Voice Command’ Mode when you talk to your BB-8 he will turn his head and track your voice. BB-8 responds when you say his name and several other voice commands. For example, he will beep and chirp with lights flashing in delight when asked “Have you seen Rey?”, but if you say “Kylo Ren” or “Stormtroopers” his mannerism is totally opposite, he starts backing away and trembling in fear. In ‘Follow Me’ Mode you clip the remote on your belt and BB-8 will follow you around doing his best to keep up with your pace, which would be perfect for cosplay enthusiasts or act as the ultimate Halloween accessory. I would definitely limit the amount of time he spends on pavement though, I’d be fearful the paint and molded plastic would get permanently damaged.
We absolutely, 100% recommend the SpinMaster BB-8 Hero for any Star Wars fan looking for a realistic BB-8 with Collector level quality!
The detail on paint is fantastic for what you could call a toy.
Relatively easy to control (for an adult, will explain)
Easy to charge.
Yes, the head does come off. What I have noticed is you have to make sure he is sitting upright and the head is resting on the top of the ball before moving again.
Although I do not have kids, I could see kids losing interest in this quickly. (Explaining "for an adult"). The controls aren't too bad, however the turn radius isn't fantastic. He will run into objects causing the head to pop off at a quick enough speed. The head popping off requires him to be lifted up to fix his orientation to make it easier to control / prevent another head pop off.
Magnets could have been a little stronger (possibly interference with internals?)
Overall BB-8 is fun!..... No where is a lifesize / reasonably priced remote control R2-D2?!?
This BB-8 is heavy and well constructed. Initial setup is simple and intuitive. The instructions do recommend fully charging both the head and body prior to first-time use (which I did). Battery life is good. I get about 40-45 minutes of run time on a single charge.
Controlling him is pretty basic with the included controller. And yes, the controller does look and feel cheap. This is only real negative I have to say about this product, but it warrants a mention because the actual droid itself looks so great...it just feels like it deserved a controller to match. His head will fall off if you hit something while moving too fast, but once you get the hang of the controls it becomes a non-issue. Besides, his head is magnetized, making reattachment super easy in the event BB-8 gets a little over zealous and runs into something.
Overall I’m having a blast with this product. It’s a quality build, controls well, and moves great along a variety of surfaces (carpet, tile, hardwood). My kids love it as well and are having a fun time driving him around the house (5 and 7 year olds). I recommend this for kids and adults alike. It’s a fun toy and/or collectors piece. 5 stars!
