        The Disney Parks Blog updated with new photos and information. There will be 71 different parts (!!!), and not all of the hats are currently available. Individual droids are $11.95, while two are available for $18.95; I was expecting these to be around $10 each given the good ol' Disney markup, so I'll be getting two at a time (over the course of many, many purchases ). They're also only available at Disney World, so no love for Disneyland yet, unless it proves popular (and I'm sure it will). There's some packaging available and customizable nameplate stickers, but I'm not sure if that costs extra.

        I'm really curious as to how the 71 different parts work out - if they count the third legs and hats as separate pieces, or what. I'm definitely gonna be spending a lot of time and money at that little workbench.

      Definitely! But I'm going to take my time and enjoy it. Part of the fun of prop collecting is acquiring the pieces.

      That was good and we got "Central - South American Dictator Eaten By Tiger - goes great with cocaine!"

      You spell Zero "Cyril."

      Dammit, Tycho, I'm gonna be thinking about that now until next January!

      It wasn't a bad season. Different but shaking it up was good.

      But is it add-on armor or a complete 1-piece Transformer?

      I'd prefer the latter.

      I saw the pics. Looks good. Maybe the face

      Swearing not allowed anywhere in the forums

      Whoever is swearing has to be from the Empire side. The Rebel Alliance will not use such lanaguage.

      Wonder if Krieger is still Krieger?

      I've completed the season.

      Best season ever!

      Women-in-prison! Oh yeah! I actually found Ava's storyline the most interesting.

      MP-22 Ultra Magnus is now confirmed to be an all new mold, no white cab Prime.

      I would have taken it either way, but its probably better
