Surprise! Sorta Stealth Star Wars Episode VII Sneak Preview Figure at Disney Parks

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 16, 2015

You may already own an Episode VII action figure - if not, here's how to get it.

The advantages of obsessive completism rarely manifest themselves so clearly.  This morning at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, four new Astromech domes were unveiled for the new movie.  These were said to be for various X-Wings and background elements, but one looked very familiar. 

It turns out that it's because we reviewed something very close to it in 2012! The unnamed yellow R6-Series Astromech Droid came out in 2012 as part of the giant glut of 25 unique domes sold exclusively at Disney Parks in their "Droid Factory" shopping experience.   In Figure of the Day #1,889, we look at this figure - and if you're close to a Disney Theme Park or one of its outside-the-gate shops with a toy store, you may well be able to get this figure right now for about $13.  You'll need to rummage through various parts bins, but hey - do you want a piece of the future, or don't you?

This post is confusing.

This post is confusing. I had to read it three times before I decided you were not saying that there are four new astromech domes for sale at Disney Parks. Even now, it seems like this would be the only point to this post, but I don't think this is what is said. Are these four domes that you are showing action figure domes or just movie props?
