Droid Depot - 3.75" Color Changing Droids
« on: April 15, 2019, 10:31 AM »
Galaxy's Edge 3.75" Color Changing Droid 4-Packs revealed at Star Wars Celebration - sounds like they color change in warm/cold water. 

There are a couple of different sets being shown, not sure how many there are in total.

Here is a picture of one set from The Force Guide:



And here's another from LaugingPlace.com

What!?  Are these actual action figures?  My son used to have a Hot Wheels car that did this.  It was pretty cool for his bath time, but didn't get used much outside of that.  I'd be a little worried about getting water stuck in the joints.

From this moment for all my life. What could I say? Was born to be this way. And what could I say?  Just livin' for today

The Luke in Bacta tank was designed to fill the tank with water.  Luke had a hole in his back in order to keep him from trying to float and there's a tube you can blow into to make bubbles form from his mask.

What about that Filoni/Pittsburgh homage Chopper? Now if they could do him in his Imperial colors that would be awesome.

I thot the chopper was his Pitt and Imperial deco wasnít it?  I love these and the playset seems to dump the water on them too and appears to have a blue-ish gonk to boot.

Love me some Disney Droids.  This weekend was very much an overload because these sort of slipped through the cracks with a lot of folks.

There's an article over at Jedi Business that shows the color change features on all of the droids.  The C-3PO one is pretty drastic, going from black to gold.  The same goes for Chopper.

Personally?  I really like the playset.  It seems like such a huge step forward from the vintage droid factory design.

Lucky SOB! I canít wait to get these. Still too high on eBay and my conversations with parks merchandise seem to indicate they may start selling them in a month after release. Also read somewhere else maybe in july theyíll be on the app. Until then I am stalking eBay.

I still don't have them in hand... friend just got back and I haven't seen him yet.  Hopefully in the next few days.  If no one else has them by then I'll toss some photos up here.
