You likely know about Sphero's BB-8 and BB-9E app-enabled droids, but they've discovered a new way to go after your wallet — an Empire R2 droid. 

You may recognize R2-Q5 from some of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi images out there. R2-Q5 is close to seven inches tall and has the same features as R2-D2, which means you'll want to watch the Star Wars films with it. This little droid also has another Sphero feature: attitude. You can discover exactly what sort of attitude that is at NYCC in the Sphero booth.

Here's a little treat for those of you at home.

The Sphero R2-Q5 is also available for pre-order at Best Buy for $199.99.
