Tweeters Amigurumi has just finished the new BB-8 droid featured in the upcoming Star Wars – The Force Awakens movie!
This adorable crochet Amigurumi BB-8 is approx. 8″ tall with antennae. Raised panels and multi-colored paint add to the level of detail.
BB-8 was an astromech droid who operated approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor. The droid was at one point operating in the desert of the planet Jakku. It had a domed head, similar to that of R2 series astromech droids, with the bulk of its body made up of a ball that the droid rolled on.
