That energy … or force, if you will … you feel across the Internets is #ForceFriday madness. Today, Friday September 4th (you know the famous saying: September the Fourth be with you) is the day everyone is finally able to get their hands on Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise. That means the movie is three months away from its release date which means I’m kinda freaking out a little. JUST A LITTLE.
We sorta already knew this, but overnight Force Friday sales has proven the little BB-8 droid is the major breakaway star of Episode VII. Finding the little app-controlled droid (don’t you dare call it a robot) may prove difficult to find, as it is apparently already sold out on DisneyStore.com and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. However, at the time this was published you could order BB-8 directly from its manufacturer, Sphero. (And also, keep checking the store links because it could restock at any time.)
If you’re having the “I missed out on the BB-8 droid” blues (or maybe you simply don’t have $150 to spend on a tiny remote controlled object), here are 10 other BB-8 items you can pick up.
BB-8 Plush – Star Wars: The Force Awakens – 7 1/2” – $9.95
Star Wars Droid Tee for Ladies – $19.95
BB-8 Tumbler with Straw – $7.95

And if you’re shopping on DisneyStore.com, you get free shipping on any order including a Star Wars item through Sunday September 6, 2015, with code: FORCE.
