Rolling BB-8 on LEGO Ideas

We’ve seen many different version of BB-8 made using LEGO. But this one is different. It can actually roll on a single axis while keeping BB-8’s head on top. Check out the YouTube video.

Pretty amazing. In the BB-8, there are LEGO weights suspended from the central axle that bolster up 2 LEGO magnets. These magnets are held close to the top of the ball and attract the 2 magnet inside BB-8’s head. That’s how it managed to keep the BB-8’s head on top while rolling. Great design!

It also comes with a desert base station that uses a turn crank to demonstrate BB-8’s rolling ability.

The rolling BB-8 is now on LEGO Ideas. Go support this amazing LEGO Ideas and help make it a real LEGO set.

The design is based on the classic 1960s TV show and has a Wayne Manor section with an exterior wall to climb on and Bruce Wayne’s study featuring the iconic Batphone and a false bookcase that slides open to reveal the secret entrance to the Batcave. Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson can spiral down the Batpoles into the Batcave and change identity to Batman and Robin. The Batcave features a Bat Lab with Batcomputer, Batcopter with flick missiles, Batcycle and Batmobile.

The classic Batmobile looks fantastic. I wish LEGO will also sell the Batmobile alone. Would really like to have one together with Batman and Robin in classic costume.
