Star Wars Droid Factory Advent Calendar 2022 Contents Revealed

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 12, 2022

Disney's Star Wars Droid Factory Advent Calendar added some photos to reveal a few parts from the droids inside.  Click here to go over there to see it.  While I think it's wrong to consider not knowing what is in a $69.99 toy before buying it, some of you are very spoiler-averse and really, I don't even know what to do for people coming to a site for toy news. I certainly don't want to see anyone spend money and be unhappy on the grounds of the "surprise" being that you just bought toys you already own.

All the droid paint jobs are new and presently exclusive to this set.

So don't click after the jump for a description.   They say

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,940: See-Threepio (C-3PO, Droids, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 7, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: C-3PO (Droids, The Vintage Collection). It's an exclusive and it's got a coin! This figure is much shorter than the 1985 original, but the colors are excellent and he has removable panels... with some gaps you can see through at some angles. Obviously, I like it. Collect all 3! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,934: Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, Droids, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 16, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, Droids, The Vintage Collection). It's a repaint of the 2010 movie figure, which captures the spirit of the 1985 original which was also a movie repaint. The chest panel doesn't close perfectly, but he has a coin, he looks cool, and you may find him in a Target right now. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,910: B5-SL

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 24, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: B5-SL. It's blue, it's mystery boxed, and it's pretty expensive for one little guy. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,868: R6-W1CH (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 28, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R6-W1CH (Droid Factory). It's new for Halloween 2021, which means the Christmas droid should show up any day now and this one will likely be gone shortly - so get it somewhere if you want one. Read on!

Disney Droid R6-W1CH In Stock at ShopDisney Now

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 9, 2021

MoreVia ShopDisney: Fi¿Star Wars Droid Factory Halloween Figure – R6-W1CH. Right now, the droid is $12.99 plus shipping - not a bad deal, considering previous ones tend to sell $20 or more (much more) if you wait too long. Sadly many of us missed R2-RNBW, the Pride droid, and I'm still cranky. (Please sell me one if you have a spare. Loose fine.)

Happy Halloween!  This means the Christmas droid is likely to show up real soon.

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!

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.

8 More Star Wars Droids Coming to Disney Theme Parks

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 11, 2017

The less I say, the better - because there are 4 items to buy with a grand total of 8 new robots. The good news: there's finally going to be an easier way to get Chopper, and that super-articulated C-3PO you like is coming back in style. With blessed little competition from Hasbro these days, you'll probably have the scratch to pull these down.  From the Disney Parks article:

This month, Cody is part of a team rolling out a limited release, boxed set with four Astromech droid action figures inspired by characters from the animated series, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.”

Additionally, three limited release action figures are making their debut including C1-10P “Chopper” from Disney XD’s animated series “Star Wars Rebels;” a two-pack featuring R2-D2 and C-3PO celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope; and a red Protocol droid, R-3D0, that was briefly seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Droids S01E01... The White Witch

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, October 13, 2012

This week in Galactic Hunter Video Theater, it's more fun out-of-print goodness! Back in 1985, Saturday morning TV had The Ewoks and Droids Adventure Hour on ABC. You got 22 minutes of Ewoks, and 22 minutes of robots. Today, we look at The White Witch, the first normal-length episode of Droids which introduced us to things like Tig Fromm, Vlix, and a strange need of R2-D2 and C-3PO to be "owned." (There's a metaphor for a bad marriage in there somewhere.) Check out the full episode after the break.
