Hey guys, I'd like to give a huge public shout out to Pete, as I was one of the collectors he was so generous with in finding time to help out during his epic, and already legendary, Disney quest! He gave me a great deal, and I can't thank him enough for all his help!
I received the droids yesterday, and they were impeccably packaged. My brief review is that the cases & cards are very nice, and the droids look really good. I suffered from the lack of available parts, and missed out on the red R3 dome, and still need a set of black legs to complete one of my droids. My favorites are the all-green droid, the all red R2 dome (It would be great to get all blue, black, or yellow R2 domes), and the blue R4 dome. I hope they get more creative with the droid colors in the future.
Disney has got to be making a fortune on these. By ordering them in bulk bags, and not having to pay the added assembly & packaging fees by having us do the work, I'd be surprised if Hasbro is getting even close to a dollar per part. I have two more batches of droids coming from friends traveling down this weekend, and in early July. Hopefully, some of the other parts I need will make an appearance.
