Perhaps in the future, Hasbro could include parts of a new FX-7 medical droid, a 2-1B with his computer chair, C3po and R2D2, some droids from Jabba Palace, etc. 8)

This promotion encourages buying action figures with proper blisters.

I found this excellent site with pictures of all the background astromechs left for Hasbro to make

It must have been hard to find that site considering it's your own website...  :P

I *founded* this site -  ;D  Anyway, I think its useful to see what else is out there for H to put in the B-A-D line.

If you are aware of any droids I left out, let me know.  I'm not sure why soem people are having trouble and others aren't.  Maybe try again later, or cut-n-paste.

I haven't had money this year to buy many TLC figures--I've got a few droid pieces, but none that go together. But then the Target bogo packs come in & so I just finished my first droids: R3-M3 and R5-C7.

I'm sure this has been discussed already, but what's the point of the extra joint hole toward the bottom of the astromech figures?

Targeted more toward the younger collector and meant to "sell" the whole Droid Factory gimmick, the holes are there as an option to add another set of legs or to move the existing pair lower on the body. They allow you to frankenstein your own astromech by mix and matching legs from other astros or arms & legs from protocol droids as well.
