    Build-a-droid at Disney parks

    There were rumors on the subject, but Attractions Magazine has visually confirmed an exclusive collection of build-a-droid parts at Disney parks. The bodies look to be the same, but the colors are new, and it looks like most (if not all) of the heads can fit hats (including Mickey Mouse ears, Indiana Jones' fedora, and the Yoda ears baseball hat). I'm sure they're going to be expensive as hell and probably difficult to obtain all the parts, but I absolutely love this kind of stuff.

    The rumor is that build-a-droid is going to come back in place of Vintage next year. If anything's going to replace TVC, I'll be very glad if it's build-a-droid.

    I like this idea a lot and I am very excited about it. The rumor report I saw said there would be 25 different domes. If that's indeed true, this could be a very expensive exclusive for me.

    After looking at the photo more closely, I see that R2, R3, R4, R5, R6, R7, R8, and R9 droids are ALL represented, with this being the first-ever versions of R6, R8, and R9 (with an all-new body being made for the R8, as R6 and R9 use the regular one). There's also a pirate hat on the R6 droid on the far left - that is way too damn cool.

    Hopefully there will be enough of these to go around. I'd like to get all of them when I'm there for CVI.

    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Looks like it's (almost) ebay time for those of us who live 1000+ miles from a park. I love the whole idea of these things and would love to buy them all (hope your listening hasbro.)

    My thoughts exactly!

    The Star Tours Facebook page updated with this photo, featuring 22 different domes, 10 different bodies, 7 different sets of legs, and 5 different hats. Some of the parts that were shown in the first image aren't here, and there are several new ones as well. My wallet already hurts.

    Any word on what these little guys will cost?

    ... I'm going to have to get at least three when I go next week.

    an R3 droid an R4 droid an an R2 unit.

    And you're darn skippy that R2 unit is going to have a micky mouse hat.

    Oiy, I can only hope these will be available as sets through HTS or somewhere similar. In the new picture it looks as though you'd be able to build nearly all of the other R2 units that almost made it as part of the Royal Starship's repair team. There just doesn't appear to be a silver R2 head with black panels in the facebook picture, otherwise all the parts are there.

    I posted some more info about it in the News article on this subject, but it looks like the figures are only at WDW for now (so not Disneyland), and they individually cost $11.95 or two for $18.95. That's a little much, but given that figures are $10 now anyway and these are a Disney exclusive (which are never known for being cheap), that's not so bad. Hopefully there will be details soon on how the assortment of parts breaks down.
