First Look at BB-8’s LEGO Version?


The site noticed an interesting image from the official LEGO catalog, with the product line for the second half of 2015. Read on to check it out…





The item on the picture above is actually Rey’s speeder and it appears that the set will also include a small BB-8 figure (bottom right corner).


This set was mentioned before with the code name “75099 Lead Hero Craft” and is expected to cost around $20-$25.


Bumper Car


Rey’s speeder (also called Rey’s bumper car) is used by Daisy Ridley’s character to travel and collect junk on the planet Jakku. There is a certain concept art (still not leaked) which depicts BB-8 traveling with Rey in the net compartment on the side.

    Prochainement? You don’t say.

  • June 20, 2015 at 5:50 pm

    uhm… how the hell they did the ball?
    Also… that price is simply impossible. A such small set usually costs 4.90 $ / € (for some reason there is no price amount difference in euros and dollars in most sets)

      25-30€ is normal for a small set that is not a battlepack!

      • June 20, 2015 at 6:24 pm

        yeah, but for a bigger set than a battlepack… a set consisting in a speeder is not bigger than a battlepack….

        • June 20, 2015 at 7:26 pm

          The Phantom, same story still 30€

            Someone hasn’t been Lego shopping in a while, $4.90 you’d be lucky. Looking at the current line Ezra’s Speeder Bike(75090) is priced at $19.99.

            Lego sets usually run about $10 for every 100 pieces.

            Star Wars sets typically have a few dollars markup for the license. So a 150-200 piece set (which the picture appears to be, as far as my 20 years of experience with Lego building goes) with a $5 markup for being a Star Wars set…. $20-25 sounds exactly right.

    Looks like they actually took the Non-Half-Ass route with BB-8’s design, they actually designed a custom piece for his head, which looks to be the size of the top half of a mini-figure head, measuring 1 1/2-1 1/2 nubs big, appropriate difference from R2-D2’s 2-2 nub dome.

    Curious how BB’s roll-orb will work, maybe they’ll go all-out and use a magnet?
    It’s definitely a better rendition than it could have been, they could have just made a single custom-piece, a la their groan-inducing depiction of hulk:

    or, for a SW comparison, sebulba:

    by contrast, this BB-8 is something I’d be proud to have lying around my desk – if it ACTUALLY EXISTS that is.

    Le reveil de la force callisse!!!!

    To me it doesn’t seem legit that they show a deconstructed toy on a box. It’s just seems weird. Anyway…

    • June 20, 2015 at 6:54 pm

      It’s an ad, not the box.

    • June 20, 2015 at 8:56 pm

      THe Lego engineers said this whole Jakku not being tatooine thing is bullshit so they’re just giving you a bunch of pieces with no directions and no completed pictures.

      • June 22, 2015 at 7:26 am

        Have you got a link for the Lego engineers’ comments?

  • June 20, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    Prochainement means coming shortly in French. It then has the Sept. 4th date underneath.

    DIRECTIONS TO ASSEMBLING THE LEGO MODEL OF REY’S LANDSPEEDER AND BB-8’S PLACEMENT: Step 1: Purchase a movie ticket for the 12/18/2015 released Star Wars TFA where multiple adjoining movie seats can be used for the Lego assembly process. WARNING: Due to other people having to see your movie at your selected theater it may not be possible to have the adequate amount of adjoining seats until a few weeks into 2016 (around the time its back to school for the kids). Step 2: Separate and place the Lego pieces according to color on selected adjoining and empty movie seats. Make sure the people hidden in caves who watch the movie the first time or the people who just can’t finish re-watching Star Wars TFA will not be able to sit in adjoining seats you will use during the LEGO assembly process. Step 3: Watch Star Wars TFA to see how Rey, when still on Jamie (and not being chased by Kylo Ren), scavenges and picks up parts to her landspeeder closely resembling your LEGO part and then builds her life-size landspeeder. The process of LEGO assembly should follow the good groupings of pieces on the adjoining movie seats you are using similar to the way Rey builds her landspeeder on Jaku! … (DIRECTIONS CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 OF THIS FOLD-OUT AND HANDY INSTRUCTION SHEET) 😉

    What the sam hell am I looking at?

  • June 21, 2015 at 2:50 am

    There’s a moisture vaporator right behind Daisy in that BTS photo. In the trailer, there was a pod racer behind her. Boy, Jakku sure copies a lot from Tatooine, doesn’t it? 😉

    (HINT: That’s because it IS Tatooine!)

    • July 18, 2015 at 8:46 pm

      Maybey jakku is smal town on tatooine…

    I’m not too optimistic about how BB-8 keeps getting shoehorned into promotional images and magazine covers. Lucas went to the “cute droids” well too often in the prequels, and now I worry Abrams will follow suit. And my worry is probably compounded by Chopper being one of the worst things about Rebels.

    • June 21, 2015 at 11:46 am

      Are you joking?

      R2 and Threepio were featured ALL over merchandise in Star Wars ’77. Was that “cute?” Are we bitching about droids now, in our bogus efforts to slip a slam against the Prequels geez?
      BB-8 is a NEW character in a NEW Star wars film, I guess some people should get used to that.

      • June 21, 2015 at 8:52 pm

        ^ This!

        Also…. Chopper rocks.
