can we all appreciate the fact that R2-D2 could lay this fucking ball cunt thing over the table and ravage its storage slot in 2 fuckung seconds if he wanted too
>gf says BB-8 is 'cuter' than R2-D2
BB-8 had more personality and was more likeable than most of the human characters from the prequel trilogy and he was a fucking robot.
give him fucking props for being an actually decent character instead of looking for reasons to shit on him.
that aside, yeah R2 is also a great character
BB-8 could easily escape and outrun R2, he's so fucking quick
Not to mention he'd just bounce down stairs in a rush whereas R2 has to slow down to navigate them
no idea how BB-8 gets UP stairs, though
R2D2 is designed to stick to the hulls of space ships and repair damage, even during combat. BB-8 is a fucking ball that has no purpose whatsoever until someone writes a book about it's lesbian adventures.
BB-8 is just a cheap R2 knockoff anyway. Its design is literally just:
>hmm, let's have an R2 clone, but slightly different so we can mooch more money off of figurines
>besides, gotta have pottery y'know ;^)
>alright, how about we just put R2's head on a football, and then color it orange
That's because R2-D2 is just a bin on wheels, whilst BB-8 actually has a personality.

R2 wasn't designed to do that for 20 fucking years and you know it. In the OT the only thing it's clear R2 is designed to do is:
a) rape computer ports
b) sit in a purpose built little hole in an X-wing
>BB-8 doesn't have a tazer.
