Sphero has the Special Edition Battle-Worn BB-8 with Force Band on sale right now for $90, or $81 after discount code. The site says this is a Daily Deal but I don't know if that's true.

https://store.sphero.com/collecti...force-band

To get 10% off, put the item in your cart. Submit your email address to start the order and let it sit in your cart for a few minutes. You should get a 10%-off code in your email (triggered by the abandoned shopping cart) without actually signing up for the mailing list (alternatively, you could just sign up for their email list to get a 10% code). Go back and apply the code for a final price of $81.

Edit: You can just use either of these 10%-off codes instead of doing the steps above: ROBOLOVE or AWESOME10.

Standard shipping is free and there was no tax for me in NY.

I bought this and the Hasbro RC one for only $30 for my 5 year old. Still debating which is best. Do you really think this app driven BB8 will be good for that age?

This one also comes with the wristband thing that apparently you can use to control it and not always need the app. Does your 5 year old want a specific one? Mine wanted this last year when it first came out, but I had no idea if it was any good and it was very $$$ still. My son wants this guy specifically because it also will interact with the Force Awakens movie if you play it and that you can talk to it and control it (I don't know how much you control it by talking) by talking to it. Best Buy has some demo videos. I have a 13 year old son with lots of remote control (app and regular controller) so my youngest has experience with using an app to control somthing via his big brother's toys. I'd say save the money if your kid just wants a remote control BB-8 and stick with the regular RC one. If he's seen this guy and how it works all over youtube like my kid has, then this is a very good deal.

Thanks, I'm for 1. I thought the Micro Center $99.99 was great. This is $22 cheaper (with taxes)!

Go back to the front page and it will pop up asking you for your age and then email. The email with the discount comes in like 1-2 min. But noticed it was already added to the cart as the post states originally.

Just use AWESOME10 for $8.99 off. Total was $81 for me.
Then don't have to subscribe or wait for code.
