“Yes, these are the droid parts you are looking for!” As part of Hasbro’s activities at Celebration VI, the Hasbro team invites fans back for the Droid Factory Parts Swap. Bring your spare parts from the 2008-2009 Droid Factory run and swap 1-for-1 for parts to complete the droids you need. Not all parts for all droids are available, but may be traded in by other fans during the Weekend, so check back often and happy trading. Also, Hasbro will be giving away Droid Factory posters (while supplies last) in its booth. Uttini!
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
