The one I just got off of ebay for $35 shipped seems to have come from a Disney park.  At least its got the Disney price sticker on it.

Yeah Pete itís somethibg Like that or a combo.  They go frequently with a timeshare there and stuff.  Seems like a nice deal too if youíre there that often.  Kinda winds up paying for itself.

Yeah - Disney Vacation Club is a timeshare - DVC members own a "stake" in one (or more) of the resorts and have points they can use each year to go stay at the resort. Also, even though most DVC members don't live in Florida, because they have a stake in property in Florida, they are allowed to get the annual pass at a discount which comes close to the Florida residents rate. On top of that, parking is always free and there are discounts at restaurants and in shops all around Walt Disney World - including the the ones at Disney Springs.

If you think you're going to go a lot or like going a lot, it's actually a pretty cool thing to be part of.

That Disney Vacation Club discount might encourage some re-sellers to do what they're doing in cases like this.  But I think that they would have to buy LOTS of these in order to turn any kind of appreciable profit.

I also think that the re-sellers are cognizant of the fact that items like this droid 4-pack are eventually going to be available for shipping via the Shop Parks app.  Once they are?  That could mean these guys wind up getting stuck with a bunch of stuff that they may not be able to move for a long time.

I couldn't image those sellers not having a discount. Otherwise, why bother?

I'm lucky enough that one of my trading buddies takes care of a couple of us with his discount.

Yeah I've been lucky with my local friends helping me...  Then other help when I've needed it too, from closer to the park.  My friends are there so much though, usually they get me covered on stuff.

Mine came saturday. The box was damaged but I didn't care.  The seller was in Riverside so he definitely got it from Disneyland. Even with an AP discount I think he broke even which is nice to see on ebay where everyone doubles the price and  ebay/paypal take 20% off the top. There was no shipping price on the mailing label.

Is there anyone with access to Disney World this week that could help me out?  I've got a friend from work going and he is willing to mule me back a set of the Solo Droids and I'd like to be able to tell him where to look but the Shop Disney App is showing out of stock. I'm hoping it wrong.

I went in November and there were two stores in Disney Springs that had Droid Factory sets.  I mention Disney Springs specifically because it's a shopping destination that doesn't require admission to the parks.  That was the Star Wars Galactic Outpost and the Star Wars Trading Post. 

Inside the parks are some other stores where I found Droid Factory items.  Tatooine Traders in Disney MGM studios is located alongside Star Tours.  You literally have to walk through the store after the Star Tours ride, and that one is among the best of the bunch.  There are a few shops in the Magic Kingdom that had them, too.

Unfortunately, I've found that the Shop Disney Parks app is pretty spot-on and if they're indicating that there's nowhere on the map they can point you in the direction of the set, then it is indeed out of stock.

The good news is that as of today they haven't removed it from the app so that probably means they have more on their way.

Pete's right.  I used the Shop Parks app when I was there to find the Disney version of Chopper.  It was only at a couple of locations on the app, like Tatooine Traders at Disney Hollywood studios.  I tried to find it before our day at that park when we went to Disney Springs, but no luck.  But like the app indicated, Chopper WAS at Tatooine Traders next to Star Tours.

Thanks for the help and feedback with this guys.  I'll print him out some info and hope for a restock before he hits the park next week.

Having seen some more imagery in the SOLO behind the scenes video that was posted on the Official Site, there are some new droids that I am REALLY hoping that either Hasbro or Disney is going to tackle.  And they look pretty awesome.

I got my 4-pk on ebay also.

Lots of droids I hope Disney or Hasbro tackles. (pg 108 'Solo: Official Guide')

LT2 series would be perfect for build-a-droid.
