2017 New Droid Factory Clone Wars Astromech Set?
« on: December 8, 2016, 11:03 AM »
Found these new droidfactory astromechs online this morning. Look to be part of a Clone Wars themed droidfactory set.

Droids are R5-S9 (blue), R5-P8 (Hondo's) and R5-U8/R5-013 (green)

No further details as of yet.

Cool.  I love the army of astromechs we've accumulated over the years.  Even if I've got no recollection of 80% of these from the movies, they make for fun filler material around other figures and in vehicle displays.

Any time-frame for when these are going to be released? Are they going to be all in one set or individually carded?

I think that's how he was deco'd in The Clone Wars...



Since there is the hat peg hole, would be kind of neat if they made a blaster pistol "hat" for him.

OMG...I have wanted Hondo's droid forever, but they have to do the dome blaster!

Looks like the other 2 are Galactic Senate Droid and Flyby's Astromech.

Dome blasters aren't family friendly.

They won't even give them the antennas...those interfere with the funny hats...which a boxed set won't come with anyway.

I'd say these could hit in a month or so.  :-X

As I will be there over Xmas it would be a nice treat if this set was there for me to purchase then, but I doubt it....

AWESOME!  I've been wanting some of these Clone Wars R5 units for a while.

The best part?  We're going to Disney next year, and I can finally pick up some of these in person at last.
