DarthChuck sends news that he found the new holiday Droid Factory R3-H17 at the Star Wars Galactic Outpost at Walt Disney World.
A reddit user DarthCaloNord found that there is an unannounced exclusive Sphero R2-Q5 coming soon to Apple stores while scrubbing through the Sphero Droids app code. The product itself seems to be confirmed via this hidden page on Sphero’s website.
Thanks to Prensa Imperial for the heads up.
UPDATE: The page on Sphero’s website has been removed.
Sideshow has updated today announcing the immediate preorder for their 1:6 Scale C2-B5 Astromech Droid figure from Rogue One.
Yakface Reader Eddie J. directs our attention to a very interesting image that has surfaced on Facebook. It depicts an (TRU?) exclusive 6″ Black Series Astromech 3 pk. which includes droids R2-A3, R5-K6 and R2-F2. No additional details are yet available for this set but look more info soon.
Looks like our theory was right on the mark as an auction for that mystery astromech has turned up on eBay revealing R5-M4 as the carded Star Wars Day/May the Fourth Droid Factory figure.
About a month ago, an unnamed mystery build-a-droid astromech surfaced online. Various theories exist as to the potential release of this figure, but with the recent ramp up of the Star Wars Day/May Fourth promotions, I theorize that this will be a Disneyland Park Commemorative Figure. A recent blog post states that special “commemorative merchandise” will be available that day, and based on the black/yellow/white colors of the logo, the corresponding colors of the droid and the precedent for Disney releasing Limited Edition astromechs, this seems to fit that theory quite well.
