Ahead of the release of the hit movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the world was introduced to one of the cutest new characters in Disney’s Star Wars revival. His name is BB-8 and actually, he isn’t a “he” at all. Instead, BB-8 is the name of an adorable little droid that makes R2-D2 look boring and old. And the best part about BB-8 is that he’s not just a 2-dimensional character trapped on screen in the movie — you can actually get a BB-8 droid of your very own and control it with your iPhone or Android smartphone.

Well guess what: From now through the end of the day on Sunday, May 8, you can get the Sphero Star Wars BB-8 Droid on sale for just $123 shipped instead of $150, which is how much it typically costs.
