So today’s the big day and The Last Jedi finally opens! Does Luke take the lightsaber from Rey and go back to fight the First Order? Does Finn survive? How many more X-Wings does Poe get, and will they have custom paint jobs too? What in the world is a Porg? All these questions will be answered as well as…who is BB-9E?
As popular as BB-8 became after The Force Awakens, it was inevitable that more of these rolling droids would show up, and that not all of them would be so friendly.
I know nothing about BB-9E other than he is supposedly bad (Director Rian Johnson referred to him as BB-H8 during the filming). But, since I had made a BB-8, I had to make his counterpart (arch-nemesis?) as well. BB-9E was made from clay with the tip of a toothpick for the antenna.
