Packaged figures. What fun year this might have been, before the dark Black times...

I think Droid Factory would've been awesome as a line between now and the films, completely.  I think even just repainting droids they have done would've been great filler...  EU decoes or even just made up stuff to be neat and/or interesting looking.

That said, what they put out, how can anyone really complain?  It actually comes to cheaper per-figure than otherwise...  There are some "eh, another figure I don't need" kind of choices I guess in there, but at this point, this little set of figures was well worth picking up I think...  not just for the droids, but I think in general it's just a decent round.

Price dropped to $49.99. Cancel your pre-order or call for an adjustment - they don't do it automatically.

Update: Price back up to $59.99

Was reading a thing the other day on their site about preorders and prices adjusting and it really seemed like they should be automatic.  So far only person I know who tried was denied when he called. :(

I think that works if you call during the price reduction window.  I've done it before with no hassle from Amazon.  But if they are only lowering the price for a brief time like that, I don't see why they would make it automatic.  The lower price is meant to drive up added sales of the product, not drive down profit across consumers who already paid.  I think most retailers put that onus on the consumer.

Mine said October 29th too... which makes no sense since Prime is 2 days shipping.

Mine arrived yesterday. Got to give Amazon a little credit as the figures shipped all together in a while mailer case packed inside a regular amazon shipping box. It was exciting to open them all and then build the protocol droid. Though, I'm a bit puzzled as I really couldn't take apart the other droid.

Got ours yesterday.  I opened the white inner mailer - still can't believe six figures fit in there.  The figures look sharp, and I'm digging the package way more than Black Series.   :-\

I was as well.

Am I remembering it wrong? I thought Dooku's Pilot Droid was supposed to be the other Build-a-Droid in the first wave of 12 figures. Right?!

he was, but when the BAD line got nixed they moved him to a main line figure.  IMO he, and the Jabba droid, are the real sellers of the set.  If Dooku's droid wasn't in it I just may have passed on this set altogether.  But I had to have the Jabba droid!
