Thanks to Richard from The Astromech Collection for the heads-up.

Facebook user Peter B. has shared that Disney Springs at Walt Disney World now has the new halloween-themed Droid Factory Astromech, R3-BOO17, in stock.
Thanks for the heads-up!
We saw them for The Force Awakens and Rogue One, and since Disney has tipped their hand ever so slightly in announcing official Force Friday II festivities at Disney Parks, we thought we’d share their is speculation of a new Droid Factory 4pk that may or may not include some spiffy new BB Units that have recently been revealed from a different manufacturer. We’ll have to see how this rumor rolls out.
The Disney Parks app has updated this morning listing the new R2-D2 and C-3PO Droid Factory set. It is currently listed as out of stock and there is no mention of it being “in-store only” like Chopper and R-3DO. Keep checking back throughout the day for a status change.
The Disney Park app has repopulated their Droid Factory offerings with a new caveat stating the the new Droid Factory build-a-droid figures like Chopper and R-3DO are now available to purchase in-store only and can not be ordered through the app.
The insanely collectible Droid Factory program is about to expand in a huge way as several new products were revealed today by the Disney Parks team at Star Wars Celebration.

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.

Twitter follower @ParksAndCons has posted word that the newest Droidfactory Astromech, R2-H16, has started hitting Disney Parks.

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.

The shroud of “The Disney Side” is slowly, but surely, being lifted on the plans for Force Friday. This week, Flyguy and I discuss some of the images, product lists and unwitting retail employees leaking out info ahead of September’s big reveal. Speaking of big, Hot Toys revealed the ultimate 1:6 item – the Millennium Falcon display recently in Hong Kong. It not only went viral in the collecting community, but caught worldwide attention on media outlets as well. Is something like this actually viable in today’s market? We wrap things up with a bit of comic news as well as our weekly breakdown of new purchases and acquisitions and more on Episode #70 of The Realm Recap!
