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.

Today while exploring the seedy underbelly of the internet, I came across three as-of-yet to be announced astromech figures that look to be part of a Clone Wars themed Droidfactory set for Disney Parks (note the missing wires on the feet). It is unclear if these will be offered together or individually, or if there is possibly a fourth droid to join them. Click on through for a closer look at R5-S9, R5-P8 and R5-U8/R5-013.
Again, these aren’t Hasbro products.

Disney Parks Blog has updated today announcing several new items for Fall 2016. And while we have seen some of these items already revealed at park locations, there are a few nuggets of newness for collectors namely the latest carded astromech droid: R2-H16.
The Yakface Toyguide updates continue, shifting to the Disney Parks exclusive Droid Factory Rogue One Astromech Set.
PROS: Astromech collectors/fans have had a lot of reason to rejoice over the last few months as there have been several droid offerings, in different scales, from the different licensees this year. This set is solely dedicated to the droids of Rogue One, and while we don’t know anything about how they play into the overall story, it’s great to get a complement of droid to bolster the ranks of the 3.75″ scale. These droids utilize the proprietary build-a-droid sculpt from Disney Parks’ continuing Droid Factory program meaning that all of the parts from each droid are cross-compatible. Decos for the most part are excellent and really stand apart from one another.
CONS: None really to speak of other than a few paint masks that didn’t quite hit their mark on a few of the droids. It would’ve also been great to get a bit of backstory for each of the droid to know what factions they line up with and to whom they may belong.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this set is worth adding to your collection.
