If you thought $150 was pricey for a model of the new Star Wars droid BB-8 then you might want to look away now as someone's made a new, ultra-fancy gold and diamond encrusted version that is estimated to be worth a whopping $135,000.

Don't worry though, it's all in the name of a good cause. The droid has been specially made by Kay Jewelers in collaboration with Disney who are auctioning the 18K gold model to raise money for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Droid took 600 hours to make and will be on display at the Star Wars themed Force 4 Fashion event in New York before heading to auction.
