BB 9E First Order Droid Star Wars The Last Jedi

BB-9E : The Last Jedi

A Lego Star Wars : The Last Jedi Lego packaging leak has revealed and a new BB Unit, this one called BB-9E who is meant to be an evil version of BB-8, much like 0-0-0 for C-3PO. It looks like BB-9E is a BB-unit used by the First Order and utilized on one of the order’s many Star Destroyers and this one is assigned to the same Star Destroyer as Supreme Leader Snoke according to the Lego packaging.

The following are some concept Photoshop rendering I’ve created based on the Lego detail back in May 2017 and DON’T represent the final version of BB-9E

Technical Specifications

BB-9E was an astromech droid, powered by a selenium drive. It had an internal orbiculate motor which allowed his spherical bodies to roll across a variety of terrain and kept his domed head fixed on top with magnetic casters. Wireless telemetry allowed the two sections of the droid to communicate. The internal gyroscopic propulsion system was self-correcting, and surface sensors on the spherical body allowed BB-9E to travel across uneven environments. Its shell was sealed from dust contamination. He was equipped with compressed liquid cable launchers that could tether and reel the droid in to hard-to-reach spots. BB-9E’s head was composed of a lightweight cranial frame featuring a large, round primary photoreceptor and a smaller articulated holoprojector array. Two transmitter and receiver antennae extended from the top of his head. Data ports were also located at the bottom of the dome-shaped head. He was protected by self-preservation protocols, creating a strong loyalty to the First Order. BB-9E communicated via droid-speak variants. It is unknown if he had any modifications apart the standard BB-unit features.
