These are the coolest new Star Wars things you can buy
“It’s time for the Jedi… to end.”
We’re only a couple of months away from the next Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, and while we salivate and pick apart every moment in the latest trailer, now might be a good time to pick up some of the latest branded tech in the Star Wars universe.
Just like the launch of The Force Awakens, Disney has teamed up with tech and toy companies the world over for a unified launch of new things designed to celebrate this film.
This unified launch is called Force Friday II, and we’ve got the complete list of exciting new things for you to add to your collection.

BB-9E and R2-D2 by Sphero
It’s BB-8’s evil twin alongside the classic R2-D2? This new character in the Star Wars universe leaves us asking a lot of questions, but also leaves us wanting to grab this new robot ball and race it with the existing lovable Sphero droid! Whether you’re in the First Order or all about resisting the darkness, for $ 179 you can have a Droid to suit your aesthetic.

Build your own Droid with littleBits
Why limit yourself to play when you can create? The folks at littleBits have a unique take on R2-D2 as a kit you can assemble yourself. No word on whether there’s a snark chip you can add or remove, but if you want to do more than just build an R2 unit there’s a whole universe of DIY options available to you for $ 99!
