The most beloved little droid in the galaxy could be coming face-to-face with its evil twin when “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” hits theatres later this year. As part of the global Force Friday II celebration, Disney and Sphero unveiled BB-9E—the dark side of BB-8.

According to a press release, BB-9E is “part of the astromech unit of the First Order that keep their starships and machinery operational” and it is described as a “rolling menace.” The robot, which features an intimidating black-and-gray color scheme, is controlled by an app and costs $150.

CNN reports that the new droid toys, including BB-9E, BB-8 and R2-D2, are designed to interact with the movie, so it’s very likely that the evil droid will have some kind of role in the upcoming film. “Through sound, BB-9E shows it is happy when the bad guys win and BB-8 becomes sad,” Sphero CEO Paul Berberian said. BB-9E, which features dozens of sounds and commands and has a glowing red eye, is also available in a Funko Pop! version and plush.

Other toys that were revealed include new Funko Pop! vinyls, Lego kits, action figures and more.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will hit theatres on Dec. 15.
