This is a tremendous feature and it works very smoothly as the extending arm pushes the hatch open while concurrently folding out the trans-medium blue flame. Ideally, I would have liked the flame to extend a little further and I should mention that only a small section of the panel opens to reveal the torch in the film. However, that would be impossible to recreate precisely at this scale and I am quite satisfied with the current design.

A roly-poly cueball with a surprisingly expressive half-dome for a head—and a vocabulary of squeaks and squiggles that are more eloquent than mere words—BB-8 is both modernist and old-fashioned at once, a marvelous creation that could have sprung from the imagination of Jules Verne. [56] BB-8 appeared with several other Force Awakens characters on the December 2015 cover of Rolling Stone, [57] [58] and alone on the cover of the December 18, 2015 issue of The Hollywood Reporter. [59] The droid was also featured alone on one of two alternate covers of the December 14, 2015, issue of Time (the other cover featuring R2-D2). [60] [61] [62] This was the first time the magazine has offered two covers for editions worldwide. [60] The Time cover photographer, Marco Grob, said, "The moment you meet BB-8, you almost build some form of weird human connection. It has this really cute way of looking at you."

Calling the robot a " Swiss Army Knife that shouldn't be trusted", he noted that while each of the BB-8's panels has a specific purpose, like a port or tool, not all of them have been absolutely defined to leave options for future films.

The first mechanism is activated by turning one of the tool bay discs which causes the head to rotate. This works brilliantly and the motion is quite realistic as there is also some transverse movement so the head appears to bob up and down, as if held in place by several magnetic casters. In fact, it is simply connected to the body using a Technic axle but this is very well hidden beneath the centre of the head.

BB-8 (or Beebee-Ate) is a droid character in the Star Wars franchise. He appeared in the three films of the sequel trilogy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019). He also appeared as a major supporting character in the animated series Star Wars Resistance, appearing in the first 17 episodes of season 1, and in the 2023 short film Rogue Not Quite One. He is a BB astromech droid serving the Resistance, and is owned by Poe Dameron. Spherical with a free-moving domed head, BB-8 is portrayed by both a rod puppet and a remote-controlled robotic unit. The character has been well received by critics and fans, and has become one of the most beloved and recognizable characters of the Star Wars saga in recent years. Otero, Jose (April 16, 2015).

I appreciate the attention to detail shown by the designer as each tool bay features a different design, all of which are accurate to the droid in the movie. Furthermore, not only do the final hatches look superb but they also conceal a lovely function as rotating the panel on the side extends the welding torch which BB-8 memorably used to imitate Finn's 'thumbs up' gesture in Star Wars: The Force Awakens!Wong, Raymond (September 19, 2015).
