The 'B' in BB-8 stands for 'bling' with this diamond-encrusted droid

While stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega seem to be taking their newfound fame from Star Wars: The Force Awakens in stride, another cast member isn't handling his celebrity status so well, blowing all of his credits on gold and diamonds. BB-8, we expected more from you.

This 4.25-inch replica of the little droid is actually a collaboration between Disney and Kay Jewelers to benefit charity. Weighing more than 1.5 pounds, it's made of 18-carat yellow girl and about 860 diamonds. Its estimated value? Oh, $135,000.

The piece is being displayed as part of the "Force 4 Fashion," after which it will be auctioned off, with the proceeds to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
