The BB-8 Phenomenon continues

At The Cantina Cast blog I wrote about the BB-8 Phenomenon that has been happening since it was introduced in the first teaser trailer.
Now with Star Wars The Force Awakens opening world wide, there is no doubt that the BB-8 Phenomenon is continuing with the following…
An appearance of BB-8 on the red carpet
BB-8 with Rey on Jakku digital trading card from the Star Wars Trading Card app
An emoji from Star Wars app for use in messaging systems
A BB-8 backpack luggage available from Amazon.com
BB-8 reward from The Force For Change campaign
BB-8 on a t-shirt that came in the Star Wars Special Edition Loot Crate
BB-8 A-Line Dress from HerUniverse, which I will be wearing tomorrow!

and the final concept art.

The most interesting is this quote from Kathleen Kennedy on the red carpet, which I believe is about BB-8, that makes me wonder just what is coming next for this character…
an unbelievable droid that will become a huge star on the Disney Channel
Therefore, I believe we are still in the infancy of the BB-8 Phenomenon. Not only in the Star Wars movies, but beyond as well.
