« on: April 9, 2018, 09:51 AM »
I'm not sure if there is a pic yet, but the Disney Consumer Products press release this morning confirmed the rumor that Solo would have a droid factory 4-pack at the parks...

I was hoping to get at least one of the fighting droids in there, but at least there are a couple new parts in there it seems.  Hoping it goes up on the ShopDisney App soon!

Well it's been months since I spent time obsessively checking the Shop Disney Parks app.  Hooray!

The R2S8 (I think) has aurabesh on his dome plus the first use Iíve ever noticed of the ďaurabesh numbersĒ which is odd.  It is just R2S and nothing else on the dome, but still kinda interesting seeing the ď2Ē as the aurabesh 2, and not just the number 2.

Love me some generic OT astromechs. Here's hoping the Parks App has one of those 20% off sales soon!

I found an eBay seller who was offering these for $34.95 shipped.  Considering they're $29.99 in the park, as well as on the Shop Parks app?  It seemed like the deal to go for since shipping and tax probably would have been close to that much from Disney.

Good thinking.  I just did from a seller charging $35.95.  That's way easier than checking the app over and over, and probably costs a couple bucks less.

Yeah.  There was the BB unit 4-pack seen in this thread.  And there was also  a TLJ astromech 2-pack that's still available on the Disney Shop Parks app.

Weird they would do that considering they are losing money after ebay/paypal fees.

I found a seller selling it for $36 and free shipping on ebay. That should take care of that one.

Perhaps an employee of Disney Parks?

If youíre pulling the discount some people get itís not bad.  I think my friends get 20% off cuz they have some account for going often. No clue what employees get but Iíd say itís that much at least if not more.

They are probably Disney Vacation Club members, I get a discount like that when I show my membership card when purchasing stuff.

They could also be annual pass holders and/or have the Chase Disney VISA card, those are other ways to get park merchandise at a discount.
