Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,796: R5-Series Astromech Droid White with Purple Panels

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 5, 2021

Today in Figure of the Day: R5-Series Astromech Droid White with Purple Panels. This sat unopened in my basement for a while, but this is a really cool design with unique paint masks on the dome - and the same purple body you saw before. And it's from late 2015. Did you get one - is it too late? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,793: R0-Series Astromech Droid Black with Orange

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 29, 2021

Today's Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: R0-Series Astromech Droid Black with Orange. This might be at a theme park still - I haven't been by in a few years so I can't say. This was one of the most recent part drops at Disney, which was five years ago. Do you need it? No - but it's really cool and one of only two R0 droid domes to be made so far, making it essential for me at the very least. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,790: R6-Series Astromech Droid White with Yellow and Silver

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 22, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R6-Series Astromech Droid White with Yellow and Silver. It's a redeco of a redeco - a second take at a yellow droid for Disney parks' parts bins. It's more lemony in color, and has a few different changes from the previous release in 2012 - assuming you can find one, it's pretty nifty. Read on!

ShopDisney.com Adds Theme Park Color-Changing Droid Figure Sets

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 4, 2021

3881 The theme-park exclusive color change droid sets and playset are now on ShopDisney.com.    These are pretty good sets for the asking price - although $50 for the playset is a bit high.  We've reviewed these droids in Figure of the Day in 2020, and if you don't have the molds - and like things that change color - these are worth picking up.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,763: R3-H17 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 24, 2020

From way back in 2017, it's the R3-H17 (Droid Factory Line Look)!  And yes that is mistletoe - but given the other droids don't have lips, I assume they won't be doing much kissing.   This little fellow is from 2017, so don't expect to see them on shelves in the theme parks you should be staying away from right now.  Read on!

The Book of Boba Fett: New Star Wars in 2021

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 21, 2020

3880 Coming in 2021, Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett is a very real thing and not just what you wanted to see as a teenager.   After a scene announced the show last week on The Mandalorian (we don't consider announcements to be spoilers here), StarWars.com posted The Book of Boba Fett, a New Series, Coming December 2021 on Disney+.

But wait, there's more!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,761: BB-H20 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 17, 2020

It's this year's Disney Droid for the holidays!  Available online - I mean, what isn't? - BB-H20 is a quasi-candy cane colored redeco of BB-8.  If you weren't told it was a holiday thing, it would just look like any other droid - so it's subtle.  Read on!

Lucasfilm Expands Star Wars

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 10, 2020

3878 In recent years a question fans have asked about Star Wars is "How much is too much?" Not because they don't want more, but because things come out so quickly that the old honeymoon period we used to enjoy after each new film - with 2 years of retro stuff and more toys from the movie we just saw - seemed to vanish.  Given the preposterous slate of new projects announced Thursday, it's entirely possible we're going to be overwhelmed once more.

Disney Adds BB-H20 Droid for Pre-Order

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 26, 2020

3871 Because your wallet deserves no mercy, Disney Parks (and ShopDisney.com) added Star Wars Droid Factory Figure – BB-H20 today. It's $12.99 plus tax and shipping - which puts it at a bit under $20. Typically when I've had to go for these on eBay, that's pretty close to the best price I've been able to find.  The cardback illustration seems to place it on Crait from The Last Jedi, while the deco on the droid is certainly nondescript Christmas grab bag coloring.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,741: BB-BOO20 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 21, 2020

While we wait to find out what this year's holiday exclusive is - if there is one - we can look at the other holiday exclusive, BB-BOO20 (Droid Factory Line Look)!  It's a little pumpkin.  It's cute, and you can order it online for around $20 shipped. It's more than the $13 at the theme parks, but you're probably not going to the theme parks. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,721: R6-Series Astromech Droid Silver with Purple

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Not from Target! This Disney parks exclusive R6-Series Astromech Droid Silver with Purple is something you could build together - we're reviewing these guys as unique domes and the body build, well, that's up to you.  There are more domes than bodies and there's a ton of purple. Read on!

Halloween Star Wars Droid at Disney - BB-BOO20

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 9, 2020

3826 UPDATE: MyDisneyShop's selling it online. $14.99 + shipping.  It does not appear to be run by Disney, but the price seems lowest so far.

The pumpkin-themed BB-BOO20 is showing up at Disney parks - and maybe elsewhere - across the USA.  While the theme parks are closed, eBay is open - and that's where we're seeing these now.  They're about $13 in stores, so when buying yours keep in mind tax is a couple of bucks and shipping is usually $5 or less.

The figure is a redeco fo the popular build-a-droid format BB droids we've been seeing for a few years, so they split in the middle and have removable heads.  They're neat.

 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,713: Gonk Droid (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 4, 2020

The Gonk Droid (Droid Factory Line Look)  changes colors from a 1970s blue to a 1990s grey!  It's cool.  Well, when it's cool, it's blue, and when it's warm it goes grey.   It also comes with a playset.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,712: R5-D23 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 30, 2020

R5-D23 (Droid Factory Line Look) was an exclusive from D-23, a convention for when people used to gather for conventions to celebrate Disney, a company that used to put movies into theaters.   It's a redeco R5-D4 mold with a nifty hat - unlike the previous releases, this one lacks Mickey Mouse ears.   It's neat! But it's not as colorful as the R4-D23.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,711: C1 Astromech (Color-Changing Droids, Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 28, 2020

While a lot of the Disney-made droid figures are derived from Hasbro elements, this C1 Astromech (Color-Changing Droids, Droid Factory Line Look) is better than Hasbro's 3 3/4-inch releases.  Chopper here has articulated arms and a pop-out data widget like the previous release, but can also change color - he turns black when he's chilled!  If you touch it during the summer, it's going to turn classic orange real fast.  It's a good figure from a four-pack at a Galaxy's Edge theme park shop that you can't (or maybe shouldn't) visit right now, but is it worth getting the set?  Read on!
