This isn't the first time that BB8 has inspired Lego recreations, but this is probably the only model out there able to move with its head always staying on top while it rolls. Created using about 180 100% Lego pieces and able to pair with attachable arms, this BB8 uses magnets and weights to help the rolling robot droid keep its head up. Designed by Lego and Star Wars fans, the two behind the project are looking for you to support it on the Lego Ideas website.
