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.
