A healthy mix of repaints, a collector's tin, and Ziro the Hutt make up a new Target exclusive Fighter Pods set at Sandtroopers.com. You should check it out!
The biggest chatter of the year comes from Florida, where Droid Factory is being deployed at Disney Hollywood Studios. You can build your own Astromech Droid, but what does the whole set-up look like? Our pal Chuck sent us some awesome images over teh Twitter, and you can click through to see them (and follow him) after the break.
First up, one of our pals on Twitter tweeted us last night that the Star Tours Astromech Droids would run about $12.95 each, or 2 for $18.95. This article shows more pictures of retooled heads and other changes, and the claim that only the R6, R8, and R9 heads are exclusive is something of a half-truth-- remember, the R5 droids appear to have no antennas this time around, plus all the droids have holes in their head.
Far less interesting than the rest of today's news, this is a Clone Trooper exclusive from 2005 when the black splotches were the coolest battle damage on a Clone yet. How does it hold up 2,000 years later?
About 20 domes, 10 bodies, and a whole mess of droids were posted to the Star Tours Facebook page. To date this is the clearest shot of the robots, which gives us a look at the various Mickey Mouse ears, confirmation that Goofy's hat does indeed sport ears, and, of course, this isn't everything. Other hats, like a very Jack Sparrow-looking pirate hat, were shown in previous preview images so it's a pretty safe bet what you're seeing here isn't the entire line.
