Droid Depot - The Droid Factory Playset
« on: April 15, 2019, 10:34 AM »
Disney Galaxy's Edge exclusive 3.75" Droid Factory playset with Gonk Droid revealed at Star Wars Celebration.  Ties into the color changing droid 4-packs.  Looks like there's a spot to fill up with water and then you dunk your droids to change the colors, I guess?

I like it...nice hat tip to the vintage playset.

This is a must have.  This is EXACTLY the kind of playset I want.  Well done Hasbro Disney!

Are we not going to talk about how they've finally updated the vintage blue Power Droid in this set?

I will be looking for this to show up for order outside the park. A proper modern Droid Factory Playset to go with all those Droid Factory figures has been on my want-list for over a decade!

Well done Hasbro!

Not Hasbro, Disney. ;)

Are we not going to talk about how they've finally updated the vintage blue Power Droid in this set?

It is the same droid that was included with the Disney Sandcrawler last year (which is a slight kitbash of the TVC 3-pack power droid version).

Any indications if these are available now at Galaxy's Edge?  Because a trip there could get REALLY expensive between all of these sets, the 6" TBS multipacks, the holocrons and the build your own lightsaber location.  And that's not even including accomodations, food and park admission!!!!

Itís my understanding these are going to be where the other BaD stuff is and not in GE but I could be wrong.

These will be in the Galaxy's Edge shop to start and then eventually be available at other retail locations at the Disney resorts as well as eventually on-line.

Ah ok.  I thought for sure they were going to just be in the other areas with the old BADs.  Which is weird but they arenít moving the old BADs yet to GE so thatís odd too haha.

Just heard from my aforementioned buddy, he managed to get me all three new Droid Factory sets, the playset and the two 4-packs.  So I guess theyíre out now.

So are the bins in the playset supposed to be a droid oil bath?
