After a brief hiatus, due to a dwindling part count, the Droid Factory attraction at Disney and they have restocked and are offering the new parts (domes & hats) that were not available previously. Let’s hope these hold out through CVI. Thanks to our friends at Endor Express for the tip.
One of our followers on twitter has alerted us to some Build-A-Droid news out of the Big Mouse. He is on site and is reporting that Tatooine Traders is out of all Mickey hats and only have middle legs in green available. They are also out of both styles of R3 heads, silver blue R2 and purple or blue R4 head.
Word is that they are NOT expecting another shipment of parts before the final Star Wars Weekends.
Lastly, due to the B.A.D. part shortage, they are NO LONGER selling the $18.95 two-packs. Only the single for $11.95
Thanks to DarthChuckMc for the info
Thanks to an article post from Yakface reader DarthChuckMc, it appears that almost all (except 2) parts for the Disney Droid Factory Astromechs are now available at Star Wars Weekends. Here is what he had to say:
Today they had 56 of the 58 parts available. No silver with blue R2 heads or black R2 bodies. All other pieces currently out were accounted for as of 6pm.
Thanks for the info! Be sure to check out our special report with Dan Curto detailing these highly desirable figures as well.
