Mine does not have the red or blue, or the silver around those areas.

I'm going to call shenanigans on that.  I have four of them and they all look like the one on the right.  I've also browsed through dozens of images of these and have never seen a red dot one.  Looks to me like the one on the left is actually R2-BHD from the 2016 Droid Depot 4-pack.  The dotted line just under the dome is a dead giveaway.

Okay good, mine looks like the one on the right too.  It's entirely possible I was reading too quick and someone was just pointing out that it was similar to an old droid.

Probably.   I just looked up the droids from the Disney Rogue One 4-pack.  Check out R2-BHD from that multipack - it looks like the one on the left.

Managed to get the two common astro droids from the same seller for about $25 shipped each.  After searching for these at all possible locations when I was at DW a couple of weeks ago and coming up empty, I figured that's not too bad of a price.

That Chopper droid is a bitch to find on ebay though.  I should be happy with just having the OG Chopper and not worrying about any redecos that may come along.  Not sure I'm there yet, but it may be soon.

I don't give a **** about the BB droids.

Got another batch of six of these from my Disney connection:

2x B5-SL (Blue BB)
2x S3-R9 (Grey Astromech)
1x CH-83 (White BB)
1x G4-S8 (Green Astromech)

Delighted to get two more I needed, especially the CH-83.  I also just ordered the JB-9 off Ebay to finish off the set, though I cringed a little at $26 shipped.


Have these for sale if anyone is looking or would trade B5s or S3s for G4s or JBs if anyone needs a swap.

4x S3-R9 (Grey Astromech) $21
2x B5-SL (Blue BB) $21
1x C1-4B (Chopper) $70


*Pending*

I keep watching the eBay prices on these and they're still super high ($80) for two of the droids.

I managed to pick up the four less expensive of the six, but am not willing to drop $80 a droid for the last two.

Anybody still trying to put together a set of these?  I was hoping the price would drop and the parks would restock with an assortment heavier on the rarer droids, but it seems like the eBay auctions are getting thinner.  I wonder if the parks aren't restocking these or if the interest is dying out.

Sorry guys, my overpaying mojo somehow didnít work to crater prices for the rest of you on these. 

I just hope Disney isnít cruel enough to do this again with similar case assortments.

Word is these are sold out at both coasts.  Friend says theyíve been out for weeks in Orlando and another friend told me they sold out second day at Disney Land during the con. 

I have all but the rare two.  Bummed on chopper but Iíll live.

Disneyland had these over the weekend but now at $16.99. Of the 7 crates I picked up, 6 contained bb droids. As much as I wanted to grab a few more, I couldn't stomach the thought of getting more bb.

One of them was the harder-to-get ch-83.

Glad these are coming back.  I got most, but not all as the price was too high.  Hopefully another shipment or two of these will bring the prices down.

Same ones as before right?  Not a new wave?
