Jedi Temple Archives has posted additional supporting info regarding a rumored expansion to the Droid Factory “build-a-droid” program at Disney Parks. This info all but officially confirms our exclusive report and image from back in December.
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.

The Shop Disney Parks app has updated to include the new R2-H16 Droid Factory Astromech. Order yours today for only $12.99.
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.
Disney Park Blog has updated today announced several new pieces of exclusive merchandise coming to Disney Parks. Head on over to check all out include a new Droid Factory Astromech set featuring 4 new droids from Rogue One. Look for these to launch September 30!
