    Makes sense since the Disney Infinity space has been under refurbishment for a while.

    Sure would be nice if BB-8 could have some other droid friends visit him from time to time

    The real BB-8 or just some local droid that looks somewhat similar?

    Wall-E didn't turn out to be very dependable...

    Wall-E fails during photo op at D23 Expo

    If it's the same one they had at the Dark Side races last year, it's kind of a puppet on a sand "base". It moves a little, but doesn't roll around.

    It can't be improved?
    A bit disappointing if that's the case.

    I would expect it to be like the BB-8 in SWAGFFA; on a raised pedestal, stationary center of gravity, remote control. Anyone expecting a practical BB-8 that moves around the room is probably asking too much.

    Can't you just pick up a BB-8 toy and snap a selfie? Lol

    I'd have rather Artoo and C3P0. A droid just sitting there is boring, no?
