Star Wars: Force for Change already announced a pretty exciting grand prize for charitable humans this year in a trip to the real island from the end of The Force Awakens, but depending on how much you like to travel, this auction might be even more exciting. The BB-8 Great Auction features BB-8 variants designed by Star Wars actors, artists, and celebrities, and they’re all just as adorable as the original.

The proceeds from the auction of these adorable creations (which you can find here, up for auction for about another ten hours) go to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. They’re a bit pricey, with most of the higher demand ones hovering around £1,120, but we’ve all had plenty of practice over the recent months coming up with excuses to pay too much money for BB-8 replicas. Your training is complete! This is what we’ve been working towards!

If you can’t spare the cash to own one, you can still see them up close and personal—if you’re in the UK, that is. They’re on display today at White Rainbow Gallery, 47 Mortimer Street in London, but you’ll have to hurry, because the exhibition closes in a few hours at 7PM. If you can’t make it, you can see a few along with their design inspiration in the image gallery above, or head over to the auction page to see them all. Happy BB-8ing!
