Brickset take a look at set 75187, the 1106 piece BB-8.

BB-8 proved to be among the most popular new characters to emerge from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and was an enormous merchandising success in 2015. Many LEGO fans created their own models of the famed droid and an official rendition has now been released which seems certain to impress and may prove to be the best selling of the eleven Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets released on Force Friday II.

75187 BB-8 contains 1106 pieces and is priced at £84.99 in the UK or $99.99 in the US. That seems reasonable based on the piece count alone but I think some people may be a little disappointed in the size of the model, standing 25cm in height without the stand. Nevertheless, I have been very excited for this set and have high expectations that it will match or even surpass the thoroughly impressive 10225 R2-D2!
