But Why?: $135,000 Gold & Diamond BB-8 Droid Figurine

December 2, 2015

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 hours to craft, weighs a pound and a half, and contains over 860 diamonds. The piece is estimated to be worth around $135,000 and will be auctioned off later this month to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. So at least it's going to a good cause. You think there's a Star Wars fan out there willing to pay over $100,000 for a gold and diamond BB-8? PROBABLY. Some of those nerds make serious money, man.

Keep going for a closeup and a video of BlingBling-8 being crafted.

Thanks to my pal Terry, who I have every intention of using to smuggle this thing out of the auction in his butt. Honestly, I'd do it myself but I still have a Picasso up there.

    Why did they do this? Because somewhere there is always someone with too much money in his pocket and not enough in the 6 inches between his ears... People think Gwyneth Paltrow is stuck up because of the things she sells on GOOP. But I'd be doing the same thing if I could... if some rich dude wants to spend tons o' money for a spoiled kid of significant other, hell ya I'll slap a million dollar price tag on a coat I picked up at Walmart and call it Alaskan Tibbar fur...

    Chief Executive of Yahoo! - Marissa Meyer , is recommending people to start freelancing from home... Something that I have been doing for over 2 years now. My profit, for this year alone is $54k so far and all I needed was nothing more than my laptop and several hrs of free time each week at home working online job over internet company, despite that i have a full-time employment beside it. Great thing is that even newbies, can get $50/hr with no trouble and the earnings can go even higher over time... This is where i started.
    azq....

    No... no, Marissa is NOT telling people that... and you know why Rosa... just because Marissa and I found happiness without you you don't have too spend these viscous lies. You know all this is YOUR FAULT... if Marissa and I hadn't found you "pegging" her fiance everything would've been just fine... and seriously, how many times have I asked for the "peg"?... bitch...

    You're half right, and why are you picking on men? The type of person who would buy this probably has too much money, but there's no reason to talk about the average size dick lodged in their head. Anyways, it's all relative. You would probably feel strange if you were rich and didn't spend this type of money on dumb shit. It's what Star Wars fans do anyways. If you have the money, you have to meet the demands of your fandom, and cheap toys just can't cut it when you're rocking gold-tipped flip flops.

    I wasn't picking on men... I was generalizing the stereotype of the older wealthy guy, trophy wife with spoiled over privileged teen... you know, typical LA/Beverly Hills crowd...

    And I didn't mention any "dick"... I'm afraid you read that one in there. I was referring to the fact that the average human's cranial cavity in roughly 6" wide, between the ears...

  • We want more Star Wars! MORE!

    Put a rubber strap on it and it's basically a Limited Edition Hublot. Watches be crazy these days.
