As Star Wars collectibles are continuing to roll out before the debut of the latest film, Kay Jewelers has joined in on the making of sci-fi merchandise with its opulent BB-8 Droid.

In partnership with Disney Consumer Products, Kay Jewelers created a stunning interpretation of the newest Star Wars droid. Taking 600 hours to construct, the Kay Jewelers BB-8 Droid is 4.25″ high and weighs just over 1.5 lbs. The opulent figurine is made of 18 carat yellow gold and features 860 18 carat diamonds. Considered absolutely priceless by any overzealous Star Wars fan, this luxury piece does come with a budget-breaking price tag.

With a base price of $135,000, this little collectible will be displayed at the Force 4 Fashion exhibit in New York and auctioned off for charity.
