It’s really hard for me not to gush about BB-8. The pure joy that is this new droid is truly endearing. And I’m not the only one! In fact it looks like he made a new fan. First introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this droid has taken over our hearts and has apparently taken Stan Lee‘s heart as well.

A video released on Instagram shows the legendary creator talking to BB-8 at his convention namesake – Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con. When the little droid responds, Lee excitedly says that “it’s like you’re really talking to it”. This whole exchange is just adorable. Lee seems fairly enamored with the droid as they quietly sit together. Frankly, I’d probably sit and stare at BB too, if I get to meet him.
