Sphero
There's no better time to be a Star Wars fan than right now. With the first new movie in over a decade finally on the horizon, the hype has hit an all time high. There's also never been a better time to be a fan of Star Wars toys. Not only are there more action figures and collectibles available than ever before, but we live in a time and age when some of the characters actually get practical reproductions that fans can own. While once upon a time it would have cost you a fortune to get an R2 unit, you can now take home a BB-8 at a reasonable price. Or in this case, completely for free. That's right, we're giving away another Sphero BB-8 to one lucky reader. Not only has BB-8 been front and center in most of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' footage, but the little droid has also found its way into the hearts, minds, t-shirts, purses, suitcases, action figures, soda cups, Google Cardboards and everything else you can slap a BB-8 on. None of those compare though to the actual interactive version of the droid created by Sphero. That's why we're giving another one away.
