Best Buy has it on sales for $99 and included the Sphero Wristband.  Great price.  I grabbed one.


Check out some more details about the Sphero R2-Q5 in this article

And here we learn that R2-Q5 will be exclusive to Best Buy

Check out THIS YAKFACE ARTICLE, because they've found ANOTHER Sphero droid that's coming soon, and it will be exclusive to Apple stores!  It's the Imperial astromech droid R2-Q5.

IF you have to choose one, I would go with R2 D2. I have been playing with all 3 today.  BB9 is doing exactly the same as BB8.  Cool new features are each droid, you can do a VR of a ship.  BB9 lets you roam Snoke Ship called Supremacy.  I have a hardwood floor so BB8 and BB9 were moving too fast for my liking.

I found THIS SPHERO VIDEO that shows off BB-8 along with the new R2-D2 and BB-9E.  These really are cool, and this didn't help me try to rationalize NOT buying them.

Check out THIS VIDEO FROM THE VERGE.  They sat down with the people from Sphero to talk about the development of their BB-8 app controlled droid.  And the idea for their BB-8 droid actually came from the Disney chairman himself, Bob Iger!  The technology for the toy is not that much unlike what was used for the BB-8 prop on the set of THE FORCE AWAKENS.
