As part of Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day today, they are offering up the combination of the Sphero Star Wars BB-8 along with the Star Wars Force Band for just $144.99. That's down from its regular price of $199. Not a huge drop in price, but it is the lowest we've seen since the holiday season last year. This sale is good today only, and will end at midnight PDT.
This is a great pickup for Stars Wars fans out there. The BB-8 app-enabled Droid comes with a battle-worn exterior, and a polycarbonate shell, so that it can be pretty rugged. Now the BB-8 can be controlled by your phone, so you can have it go wherever you want it to go. It's a pretty cool product, and it has been very popular among Stars Wars fans. In fact it was so popular that it was out of stock for the first few months after it launched. Included in this bundle is the Force Band, which allows you to control the BB-8 through gestures like Force push, pull and drive. The BB-8 is compatible with apps on both Android and iOS.
As we already mentioned, this sale is going on today only. So if you are interested in picking up the BB-8 and the Star Wars Force Band, now is definitely the time to pick it up. And don't forget that with Amazon Prime, you can have it on your doorstep as soon as Monday morning. If you aren't an Amazon Prime member, you can grab a free 30-day trial using the link below.
