The new Droid Factory astromech R3-H17 is now listed on the Shop Disney Parks app, although it is current labeled as available for in-store purchase only.
Update: You may want to give the app another shot as it is apparently letting app orders go through.
Update 2: R3-H17 is now pulled from the app. Thanks to Steve W. for the update.
Thanks to StarWarsCollector for the heads-up.
Hot Toys has announced a few new 1:6 scale offerings for The Last Jedi: an all-new BB-8* with interchangeable arms, BB-9E*, a BB-8 with BB-9E set with bonus MSE droid*.

Look for these to go up for preorder through Sideshow Collectibles soon.

The insanely collectible Droid Factory program is about to expand in a huge way as several new products were revealed today by the Disney Parks team at Star Wars Celebration. Click on through for images of tomorrow’s launch of the Protocol Droids, several carded releases for the holidays and D23 PLUS the tease of a Sandcrawler with Power Droid Playset!
We have another as-of-yet unannounced figure to share today. This image comes from our source that discovered those four disney droidfactory astromechs we revealed. Details are scarce for this protocol droid other than it looks to be R-3PO. There is a theory that the build-a-droid/droidfactory program may expand to include protocol droids as there are a fair amount throughout the films to pull from. Click on through for a closer look.
As a follow up to our exclusive announcement of three new Droidfactory/Bulld-A-Droid astromechs coming soon to Disney Park locations, we can reveal R2-C2 as the fourth droid that should complete the 4 droid “Clone Wars” set. Interestingly, we just received a version of this figure in Entertainment Earth’s exclusive last month.
