Jayson's got another scoop... I'm not clear on if we can order this one or if it's in park only, but here it is:

Comments on social media are everything you’d expect with a dash of even worse at times.

I hope it turns up online so I can pick one up.  I have skipped quite a few of the goofy repaint BB-units but I am a total sucker for any and all R-series astromech repaints they want to crank out.  I can find a place on my shelf for this proud little R2-unit.

eBay prices have stopped from about $50 a few days ago to about $35 now... hoping that means there’s no limit on them.  When it hits about $20 shipped I’ll just get one there to be done with it.

Are these already *out* (see what I did there)?

Jayson mentioned these would be associated with Pride month (June). 

I'll be looking to pick one of these up too when they price gets reasonable.

I believe they are since they’re hitting eBay.

I’m waiting for friends to go to the park or the app but I want it.

I think it's cool that Disney did this for Pride month.  I just bought one for $28 shipped.  My daughter loves rainbow stuff and she's really getting into Star Wars.  This one is for her!

Also trying to verify what the Aurebesh text is.  I translated it as DROID BUILD.

Grabbed one for $28 shipped as well.

It's growing on me. And Nick, I can see how kids would be attracted to the colors.

Might have to try getting 2 -- one for my collection and the second to replace the first should my toddler niece take a liking to it and decides she wants it.

I couldn't hold back the surprise.  I got some bad news today, so I showed her the picture.  She loved it.  So I told her that I ordered it for her.  She was thrilled!  And it helped me for just a little while.

I like this one, like what it represents. My "supplier" was able to grab a couple for me today while he was at Hollywood Studios. I'll be there at the end of July, and I suppose there's a chance they might still be there then, but I didn't want to risk it...

I bit and ordered one for $30 shipped last night.  I usually pay $22 or $23 anyway, and decided the extra few dollars was worth it to be done.

You should all be able to get them for $22 in a week or two now.

I went in on this droid shipped for $28 last week too, and I pretty much never get the Disney droids. I think I have only gone in on Chopper and the Depot 5-pack previously. This one is something special, I feel.

Got mine yesterday - lots of paint deco on this one - I was pleasantly surprised by how extensive the rainbow design is on the figure
