Iím curious what droids it will ultimately makeÖ I like their designs generally but there are some I donít mind skipping. Itíd be nice to know what you get before committing to buying.

I absolutely LOVE this idea, I think it will be a lot of fun. I hope this is easy to get because I'm easily down for five sets!

Thanks!

Don't forget to use "SHIPMAGIC" for free shipping over $75.

Do we have any more idea on exactly what five droids you get with this?  Are they all new or repeats of something they've offered before?

I asked a friend that and he didn't know either.  He guessed the droids might be on the box with the Jawas, but then that might mean we get a bunch of mouse droids (appropriate for a Disney set).

I might bite on this one.  But I'm also waiting on the Black Series McQuarrie concept 2-pack.  That's supposed to be up around 10 AM on Shop Disney.  Because that SHIPMAGIC code is worth using!

It's weird that the description says "Features 25 holiday-themed droids" instead of droid parts.  Is that a typo or has this set changed?  Or maybe there was a mix-up in the original announcement?

Got it!  Thanks!

I also decided to buy the Advent Calendar.  My daughter and I have had fun with the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar, and this might be fun, too.

Predictions?  I'm thinking there might be Training remotes and IT-0 droids in Christmas ornament colors.  Maybe a BB unit.  Beyond that?  Who knows!

2022 Build-a-Droid Advent Calendar - builds 5 droids.

I went digging back through JediDefender's twitter timeline... this is where the "5 droids" report came from-

https://twitter.com/JediNewsNetwork/status/1530305865726631936


Based on the "Features 25 holiday-themed droids", some folks are speculating that it is not a 3.75" "build-a" set but potentially repaints of those mini "build-a" droids that came out in late 2018 - https://www.fanthatracks.com/news/collecting/disney-announce-star-wars-mini-droid-blind-packs/

That would kinda suck.  I bought the advent calendar assuming it was new 3.75" build a droids.  I guess we'll see what my $70 will get me. 

I'm afraid to wait and see what this is as it might be sold out in a couple of days...

Update - it appears "25 holiday-themed droids" was a typo.  The text has now been revised to read:

"Comes with 24 build-a-droid pieces that make five full droidsĖplus a bonus completed droid making six droids in total."
