Thanks to my pal Shannon once more, the droid R2-H16 is here in the office! He's at Disneyland and other Disney parks now for pennies under $13. He also has an all-new hat. You won't want to miss this festive fellow, as he'll likely disappear from the parks before the new year. Get yours, read on!
If you're planning on being at Disneyland or Disneyworld soon, a whole slate of Rogue One theme park products have been announced for September 30! The pricing is unknown, but click here to see everything. A new Droid Factory 4-pack brings you C2-B5 (new), R2-BHO (new), R2-M2 (new), and R5-SK1 - which looks a lot like R5-D4. I'll have the skinny for you when I (hopefully) pick up my set in October along with (hopefully) R2-B00.
If you love droids - and let's be honest, if you don't, we can't be friends - you'll be excited and/or irritated to know that another in an ongoing series of cute Disney exclusive carded droids is up for grabs. Only the second new one this year, R2-B00 is up for grabs at or near Disneyland now - check the stores in that general area and this green, purple, orange, and black droid can be yours for about $12.95. For those keeping track - so far - as of right now - no new parts in the make-your-own-droid bins have surfaced, saving you all from mild heart attacks for a litle longer.
If you aren't busy watching the David Hasslehoff music video for True Survivor, please take a moment to look at these new droids. As you know, we were told to expect new Droid Factory action figures at the Disney park building experience/shop/assembly line. Reader Colin sent in two images and tells us:
"Hey Adam just want to say I did find the droids at Disneyland this afternoon. Was told 11 but only found 9. Here are some photos."
Thank you, Colin! Check out the pictures after the break. Also, today's secret word is "sombrero."
Memorial Day weekend was full of bounty at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California as new swag has shipped and arrived in their Star Traders store. Of particular interest to collectors would be the new Star Tours sets and Mickey’s Jedi Starfighter. But these aren’t the only pieces that caught our eye.
Our intrepid pal Shannon Cosman strikes again! He went to Disneyland last weekend and shot some video of a pair of surprisingly awesome lunch kits. The R2-D2 has multiple lights and sounds, giving the means with which to keep your lunch cool the kind of movie-magic we want to see applied to action figures. Check out R2-D2 and Darth Vader after the jump.
Our pal Shannon Cosman hit up Disneyland in Anaheim, CA this weekend to bring us some shots of new park merchandise! Highlights include New Droid Products from Thermos, several awesome close-up shots of the droid part bins, and what seems to be a Mickey Mouse Pillbox which has to be seen to be believed - seriously, click through and check this stuff out!
David Yeh of Endor Express has a great report on the new Droid Factory shop that opened up at Disneyland Anaheim Star Traders recently, to the joy of West Coast fans.
