Sphero BB-9E Price History

Jennifer Watts

9th November 2017

By Jennifer Watts

Mum, Wife, Gadget Lover & Foodie


The Sphero BB-9E completes my Sphero Star Wars set! I now have BB-8, R2-D2, and BB-9E (I also have some of the Marvel and Pixar Sphero products, too… I really like Sphero!). From what I understand, BB-9E is a dark side droid who features in The Last Jedi, but I haven’t seen the film yet so I don’t really know too much about him. What I do know is that the overall functionality of the Sphero BB-9E is quite similar to the Sphero BB-8 which was launched a few years ago. There are a few differences, however.

What’s in the Box?

The box is nicely designed. The front comes off to reveal the BB-9E model, which is about 9 cm tall. When BB-9E is removed from the box there are a few extra bits hiding underneath. There’s a charging station and cable, a legal guide, and a ‘Droid Trainer’ which appears to be some sort of plinth or presentation stand. Seems strange to include this as the charger pretty much does the same job!

The App

Of course, not included is a device for running the app, which you need to supply yourself, as with the other Sphero models. The app is the same for all three of the Star Wars Droids, you just need to select which model you want to control at start up. The app works on most Android and iOS devices.

The app has actually changed a lot since the BB-8 droid was introduced in 2015. There seems to be a lot more functionality now, possibly because the droids do more now that there’s a group of them. When it was just the BB-8 there were no interactive options, but now that there are 3 Star Wars droids available they can all interact with each other. All instructions and help guides for this are accessed via the app.

Similarities and Differences

There are lots of similarities between the BB-8 and the BB-9E. The droids can be controlled via the app so that they move around (BB-9E actually moves very fast, it does take some time to get used to the controls to stop him racing into things!), and they both have sensors which are supposed to prevent crashes into obstacles (the sensors are OK but don’t always seem to work very well). BB-9E also has the ‘Watch with Me’ feature to play Star Wars films through the app and have the droids respond.

There are a few differences as well. The Sphero BB-9E seems to be Sphero’s most advanced Star Wars droid to date, with additional electronics built into the head part of the model to light up the integrated LEDs. Obviously the sounds are different to BB-8, not quite as jolly, but I can’t say how true these sounds are to the film as I haven’t seen it yet. Movement is much the same as the BB-8 model.

Using the Sphero BB-9E

The range of movement and ease of movement is excellent, my only advice is to vacuum well before using the droid on carpet! I have cats so my carpets are usually full of fur no matter how often I vacuum and I have noticed that some of the fur is starting to get caught in the little wheels located beneath the head. I had to give it a good clean out because I was worried that the fur might start to affect movement.

Worth It?

The Sphero BB-9E droid looks great, moves great, and is a fantastic addition to the Sphero Star Wars range. As with the others in the range I will say that this probably isn’t going to suit someone who is looking for something with similar capabilities as the Sphero or Sphero Mini because the droids don’t do anywhere near as much as the little robotic balls. However, as a cool piece of Star Wars memorabilia they are excellent, and they definitely make for interesting gifts for kids and adults who love Star Wars.
