    Question What ever happened with this rumor?

    I do not remember where i got this from, but here it is.

    "Walt Disney Attractions will be getting SIX theme park & exclusive 3.75" figures produced by HASBRO.

    Figures will be all DROIDS & a combination of repaints & ALL NEW sculpts. All figures will be based on the Disney "Star Tours" attraction, taken from the ride film & queue line. They will ship in two waves of three, the first to come this fall.

    First wave will include 2 new & 1 repaint. The repaint will be of the Theed escape R2 in a green/white scheme. The two new sculpts will consist of the Star Speeder 3000 pilot "MAX" & one of the repair unit droids (kind of resembles "Johnny-5" from "Short Circuit") from the queue line. Wave 2 should be out sometime next Spring. Again expect 2 new/1 repaint. Details later.

    They will be in custom cards based on the POTJ versions, but say "STAR TOURS" & w/o the Vader/Obi image. The card back will explain the story of the attraction.

    They will be available in all Disney parks w/the Star Tours attraction as well as on to allow collectors access & avoid a scalper frenzy. So they should be easy to get a hold of once released. Exact price point unknown, though probably expect them to be around the $10 mark, which is what the Disney parks currently charge for the POTJ assortments.

    Also in the works for sometime down the line is a 3.75" scale STAR SPEEDER 3000 vehicle playset...

    More details to come as I get them."

    If sites would only post facts (at least do all they can to verify it) so not to get the hopes up of so many fans...

    I just read this today at another site in part of their Q& A. The question was will Hasbro be making more Droids. There was a longer answer I just included this sentence.

    "Disney may end up with a couple exclusive astromechs to tie in with their Star Tours attraction."

    Well, it says they'll sell them thru the fanclub, so I'm not worried about missing out on them. I really want that green and white R2-A6 though...

    I read sometime ago that nothing had been said on confirming those toys...but then again, nothing had been said against it, so it's actually kinda in limbo, but since they released that one toy for Disney, I'd say it's likely that we'll see them sooner or later.
