2017 Droid Factory Build-a-Protocol Droid Series

Mystery 3.75" Protocol Droid Figure revealed at Yakface.

Hmmm...  if the rumors/theories pan out, this will be both exciting (to see new parts/droids added to the mix) and annoying (if there are first-time protocol droids to track down for big $$$).   :-\

Interesting rumor any way you look at it....

Jesse James:
Caught this on social media myself and wow...  I love the hand too, which is kind of unique. 

I don't see the interest in mixing/matching colors being as high with protocol droids, as it is with astromechs, but I can see wanting cmplete solid colored ones sure.

Comparing this to the two previous offerings of R-3PO  (Saga Gold & the Droid Factory 2-pack), the paint apps look kind of weak.  The sculpt looks okay, though.  But I do get a little disappointed when we continue to revisit previously made droids instead of doing something new.  We've got multiple versions of a few protocol droids including C-3PO, R-3PO and K-3PO.  How about mixing it up?

There was E-3PO from TESB, although some argue that the different finishes for the U-3PO B-A-D may have already covered this.  And what about the gaggle of protocol droids from REVENGE OF THE SITH?  There were at least 3 x Threepio units and at least a couple of BD-3000 droids, too.

Jesse James:
This is stirring again and I really would like an all white droid like is in that pic Nick posted...  Thinking about other colors, again I think the mix/match potential on Protocol Droids is limited.  That said, I think the solid color diversity would be a nice addition and maybe they'll make some cool colors.  I'd like a black 3PO unit, some RA heads maybe.  I can't see them going balls out with droid diversity but who knows I guess.

That early pic Yakface showed is pretty cool IMO...  maybe some are never gonna be happy but to me it's some SA droids.  I'm cool with that.

What is that skinny black droid in the back with the hood?
