BB-8 Builders Club – #NotBuildingBB8

A lot of people were surprised to see a functional R/C BB-8 droid on the stage at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim last May. There were 7 BB-8s used in the movie. They each had different functions and were puppeteered by individuals in green screen suits. The R/C droid was created after the movie was filmed, for red carpet appearances and other live events.

The BB-8 builders club is a group devoted to building BB-8 replicas.

Attendees will be able to meet BB-8, and learn about different fabrication techniques like 3d printing and more.
