Once I saw early pictures of BB-8 from the new Star Wars movie The Force Awakens, I just knew I had to make a model of it. I wanted to capture the shape and characteristics with as few pieces as possible.This resulted in a model with 227 pieces. All pieces used are currently active pieces (in sets that are on the market now).
A friend of mine made a video showing how this model is built. You can watch it here:
It has been a dream my whole life to design a Lego-model. It would be a dream come true to see this model as an official Lego-set.
