    This is the BB-8 tire cover spotted by Redditor dubsallday on a road in California. Pretty clever. There's a video of BB-8 in action after the jump which doesn't play right in Firefox but does in Chrome and I don't know about Safari because I didn't test that. I'm going to m... / Continue →

    Because Star Wars everything, this is the $60 R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp available from ThinkGeek. It looks like everybody's favorite droid minus the people whose favorite droid is BB-8 or one of those Gonk droids that looks like a trashcan with feet. You know I used to ha... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a little girl cosplaying as BB-8 at WonderCon 2016 last weekend. Precious, right? She doesn't seem to know what to do with all the people around her watching and taking pictures. I wouldn't either. I do not like crowds. If a bar or restaurant is cr... / Continue →

    This is a compilation of every time R2-D2 saves the day in the first six Star Wars movies. He deserves a medal. Without him, pretty much everybody would have died. Without me? Nobody would notice until my rent didn't get paid or my apartment started to smell. I was just lo... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse of a lifesize LEGO BB-8 being built by the folks at Bright Bricks. Me? I am a Dumb Stone. Oh who am I kidding, I'm not even a stone. I'm a rock at best and more than likely just a dried up piece of animal shit somebody might mistake for a rock provided t... / Continue →

    Full disclosure: I got super sick over the weekend and feel like death and am heavily medicated so nothing is going to make any sense, but I'm going to TRY. This is a shot of Imgurian jmsmith7's wife with her 8-month pregnant belly painted to look like BB-8. I'm just glad BB-... / Continue →

    This is an Epic Meal Time special in which the crew builds a 70,861 calorie, 5,116 grams of fat BB-8 droid. It's predominately ground beef and egg, with some mozzarella, bacon, hotdogs and cheeseburgers used for the detailing. I think I would eat it. "In one sitting?" Don't... / Continue →

    This is a video of NASA roboticist Brett Kennedy discussing what he thinks of the designs of Star Wars droids BB-8, R2-D2 and C-3PO. BB-8 he's not that into from a practicality standpoint, but he digs aspects of R2 and C-3PO. He would only suggest taking C-3PO into space thou... / Continue →

    Disney teamed up with Kay Jewelers (allegedly every kiss begins with K, although I've heard several stories of very special kisses that began with 'Hey Mister, You Looking For A Good Time?') to create this 4-inch BB-8 made entirely out of gold and diamonds. It took over 600 ho... / Continue →

    This is 'R2-D2 In Love', a video edit by WhoIsPablo of R2 plugging his universal computer interface arm into a bunch of love sockets all sexy-like, set to Yello's 'Oh Yeah' (the song from Ferris Bueller's Day Off). Man, it's weird to think there's a droid out there having more... / Continue →
