    Star Tours Droids #7, #8, #9 Revealed on StarWars.Com

    As was stated in another thread, I said that there was rumors of there being 9 of them. According to people that spoke to Disney operators they only confirmed 6 figures. Well, StarWars.com has updated and they announced the last three figures. http://www.starwars.com/collecting/n...s20020828.html

    Star Tours Toys Debut
    August 28, 2002


    Since 1987, guests of the Disney theme parks have ventured aboard a Star Tours speeder to check out the moons of Endor, only to be sidetracked to a rocky mis-adventure by a perpetually inexperienced Captain Rex (RX-24).

    Earlier this month, a partnership between Disney and Star Wars toy licensee Hasbro opened "Once Upon a Toy". This 16,000-square-foot store in the Downtown Disney Marketplace at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida is the home of wide array of exclusive Disney-themed merchandise - including the first official figures inspired by the droids of Star Tours.

    Already available are 3 3/4" scale figures of Captain Rex, G2-4T and R3-D3. Joining them soon will be figures of R4-M9, DL-X2 and WEG-1618. Another three figures -- G2-9T, R5-D4 and SK-Z38 -- are expected to round-out the lineup later this year.

    Also exclusive to the store are four Star Tours-labeled Star Wars roleplay items: a Rebel Alliance Blaster, Rebel Alliance Bowcaster, Galactic Empire Rifle and Jedi Training Academy Lightsaber.

    Rynobot, re-read the article. Pay close attention to this line.

    R5-D4, finally. And he's a frickin' Star Tours figure. Jeez. How I'll wrangle up one of these, I have no idea, but if it's a good sculpt then I will do what I must...

    Be y'all get your wallets out and ready, remember these are the people who want $10 for a repainted R4-M9 most likely without the mouse droid that we paid $5.88 for to get the two together. I highly doubt they'd release a new R5-D4 exclusively to the Star Tours line when they know they can cash in on it, so if it is truly a NEW R5-D4 (or to be technical an R2-Q5 body with new R5 head..) then it will most likely be released to Star Tours and in someway to the Saga line. For all we know it could be POTF2 R5. (The POTF2 features are attractive to kids)

    But it's not R5-D4 is it. It's R5-DL because his head is different to that on R5-D4 R5-DL has two tubular photoreceptors and R5-D4 has the three small round one.
    R5-DL is actually seen in the interior shots of the sandcrawler in some still shots floating around but when they shot the exterior shots they changed the head to the familiar three eyed version who became R5-D4. So R5 is technically the only star tours droid to have been anywhere near star wars.

    If I get a chance I'll pick up R5 and R4 just because I can't be bothered to repaint anymore R4 droids and because no matter what he turns out like as long as he isn't the POTF2 version I'll probably go nuts for a new R5.

    The G2 droids and WEG-1618 are quite funky too. R3-D3 is not so good but might tempt me. Captain Rex is cool but not star warsy enough to tempt me and by the looks of it the SK droid is Japanese styled junk too.

    And as for the DL droid 'box with arm' I just weep to think people are actually buying that crud. I've seen everything now. You take a toy like FX-7 and compare it to that DL droid and it's like stone age meets 21st century. The disparity in both quality and creativity is astonishing.

    However, each to his own as someone keeps telling us all. I like some I hate some. I'll buy some if I can find any. At import prices I guess i can expect to pay something in the region of over $20 apiece. Could be worse, could be better.
