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.

Our friends at Vinylmation World remind us that the next series of Star Wars themed Vinylmation Eachez is being release tomorrow at Disneyworld’s D-Street, Disneyland and DisneyStore.com. Unlike previous releases, this launch features 3 possible variants to collect: C-3PO is packed 7:10 (1750), K-3PO is 2:10 (500) and the rare R-3PO is packed 1:10 (250).
Vinylmation World alerts us that in commemoration of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary, they will be issuing an exclusive R2-D60 Droid Factory figure.It will be limited to 6000 pieces and retail for $12.95.
If you’re a build-a-droid part completist, this is an essential purchase.
Update: Our friends at The Astromech Collection pass on info that the R2-D60 will be available in a much wider release and not limited to 6000 pcs.
