Very cool droid collections guys. I'm glad you are getting them without me. I've been working on building an arcade cabinet recently and have neglected star wars for a while.

I've been picking up a few a week. I may grab more. I feel like buying these has kept the hobby alive for me with nothing at stores right now from hasbro.

So I'm at WDW, where does one find these?

Disney Springs (Once Upon a Toy) has everything but Threepio style heads.

There are actually two places that carry them at Disney Springs, but I am ashamed to admit I cant remember their names even though I was just there a few months back. ugh...bad brain!

Star Trader has one and the other place is on the magic kingdom iirc.

Star Trader is near the Star Tours ride I believe.  I've never been to know but friends go frequently.  I'll ask the specific names.

Edit: Tatooine Traders at Star Tours and Once Upon A Toy at Disney Sprinfs are the two Steve.  Iirc the latter still had some older BAD parts from previous waves but not a ton of them.  This was from my buddy Jim.

Thanks to Jim.  I got 10 BADs.  Probably could have went for more but didn't want to push it.

Realized that I put the wrong torso on the black Threepio I made.  That's disappointing.  Wonder if I can find someone heading down to Disney that can help a brother out sometime

My buddies said the new protocols are much more nerve wracking to build especially if a crowd is there because the parts are so very similar with just minor sculpt differences.  I am definitely not gonna get hung up on having a 3po with all the arm variations or whatever.  That'd be nuts.  The domes and variety of color on the astromech line is one thing but this is much less interesting in that regard.  At least to me anyway.

Been lucky enough to have some help on these and down to all but three. It's been a very cool line, wondering how they could add to it.

I finally got down to Orlando with the family.  And I got to build a few protocol droids.  The ones I went with?

-Blue Threepio (D-0T)
-Black Threepio (0-0-0)
-Silver CZ droid
-Red Shopkeeper droid

I was tempted to do more, but I was trying to keep spending under control.
