Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,817: LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Silver, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 24, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Silver, Droid Factory). Since they had the body, they repainted it, and we got some pretty nifty variations on the old Bounty Hunter droid. Mine has CZ arms, which look neat since one of the shoulders is painted a slightly different color. These things sometimes look like they were assembled by Jawas. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,814: 3PO Protocol Droid (Blue, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 17, 2021

Today in Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: 3PO Protocol Droid (Blue, Droid Factory). This blue droid is sold in parts bins exclusively in theme parks, which may as well mean eBay. The blue head and torso include unique painted stripe patterns, the significance of which I actually do not know - but it's blue and it looks cool, and it reminds me of the blue concept C-3POs we once saw in Tomart's Action Figure Digest. In other words, this Disney figure is sort of like a Kenner prototype we assumed we'd never get. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,811: R8-Series Astromech Droid Orange with White Panels

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 10, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R8-Series Astromech Droid Orange with White Panels. A weird dome, a unique body, and some pretty spectacular colors make for a standout droid that matches your X-Wing pilots quite nicely. If you have the means, you should get one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,809: R5-M4 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R5-M4 (Droid Factory Line Look). This one was available five years ago, and to this day is arguably the only thing that probably matters to figure fans as May 4 releases go. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,804: CB-23 (Droid Factory Line Look / Droid Depot)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 22, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: CB-23 (Droid Factory Line Look / Droid Depot). He's the BB-8 replacement for the back half of Star Wars: Resistance, which you did not watch most likely. A theme park exclusive, this is available online at a mark-up but may well be abundant and cheaper as the theme parks open even more by the end of the month. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,801: Vendor Droid (White, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 15, 2021

Fresh from the Disney parks (a few years ago) is today's Figure of the Day: Vendor Droid (White, Droid Factory). This one has what looks like a price scanner on his head. The white version has a brown printed pattern on it to look a little worn, which is weird for a robot that works in stores. The model first showed up in The Clone Wars, and hasn't really made many appearances since. If you have one, you probably got it at a Disney theme park. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,799: R2-Series Astromech Droid White with Red Panels

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 12, 2021

Today's Figure of the Day comes from a theme park: R2-Series Astromech Droid White with Red Panels. I took a while to get to a lot of these droids, but the white dome look is pretty distinctive - and the red panels are a little bit different than some of the other ones Disney put out. It doesn't remind me of any specific droid in any of the TV shows or films, but at least it looks different than a lot of the other figures in my droid collection. Read on!

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.
