    Droid Factory at Once Upon a Toy & Disneyland

    You can view the page at http://www.sirstevesguide.com/conten...nce-Upon-a-Toy

    Disney's Droid Factory, using the parts from Hasbro's Build A Droid astromechs, plus some new ones, has now landed at the Disney World Once Upon a Toy shop outside the park.

    The Droid Factory experience has also expanded into the Star Trader at the original Disneyland in California.

    Nice! The parts should be much easier to obtain this way (still not easy, but easier). I'm only missing a few pieces so now it should take less convincing to get someone to pick them up for me.

    Now they need to get one here in the California park.

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

    They've never had any of the BAD stuff here, have they?
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Not yet, no. I keep checking, hoping. They don't even really have space in the existing Star Trader unless they take out the lightsaber station which would be foolish since it's still making sales.

    Build a droid in Florida was a lot of fun. Disney got so much of my money that way during my visit there last year. I'm honestly surprised they havn't done it in california yet, as it was making money hand over fist while I was there.

    Hey, what do you know! It's at Disneyland now after all! Guess who's going to be asking for some favors?

    A few more notes about the experience, there are clearly parts they had more and less of at the time and all-new parts so they warrant discussion.

    At Disneyland, the singles are $12 or $13, and the doubles are $19.95.

    I didn't even know of the existence of the R9 heads until I got home, that makes the R9 droid factory figure an exclusive figure overall, very frustrating that I didn't know to look for that part.

    The domes have been modified to accept the hats, and upon building my R7 droid the first one I had the dome's central core broke off of the dome, leaving it stuck in the droid body. This is obviously less than ideal, and I worry all the domes are eventually going to fail in a similar manner.

    The R8 domes are also I guess exclusive to the store, I got one of those.

    The legs are pretty rubbery, mine splayed in package immediately.

    Using some research and some eyeball time, this is the list I came up with of parts, it's the checklist from my smartphone for my personal list of haves and haven'ts (so I can pick up my pieces over time, the "v" marks are how my phone outputs the checklist):

    Here's the pair I made, note that I put an R2 body on the R7 head, that was because there are no green R7 bodies and I wanted it to be a color that worked with the Indy hat best.

    Ok, I'm going back again in 2 weeks, so consider what you intend to be interested in, and the sooner the better because I won't be able to front you the funds if it's a lot.

    My annual pass discount was $4 off the $20, after tax that came to $17.24 for a 2-pack.

    Pretty wild, I'll let you know in a week or so what I see. I bet you that the Fire Marshal makes them move it though, that's a surefire bottleneck location since it's the only exit path in that area. I predict a lot of stolen body parts.

    And it's all because I pointed out they haven't done it in Cali before.

    You can thank me later, guys.
    Tommy, close your eyes.
