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.
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.
