Even though they are "made by Disney" - they licensed the original Astromech and Protocol Droid sculpts from Hasbro, and if they were to be honest with us, they would admit that the figures are made in the same factory as the regular Hasbro stuff.

The recent R2-W50 droid was carded up EXACTLY like the TVC Carbonized figures and for some reason, so is the SK-620 astromech (just without the glossy finish) that is exclusive to the Galactic Starcruiser. I think they even used the same "carbonized" gold paint treatment they used on the recent Carbonized Shoretrooper figure (both 3.75" and 6" scale).

So, for me at least, no matter how many times someone reminds me "you know these aren't Hasbro", I'm still convinced they are Hasbro, they just don't have the Hasbro name on the package...

Anyway, back to R7-TN0...

Apparently these are out and purchasable at Downtown Disney in California. They did indicate during the Celebration panel (per the slide) that these were "limited" - who the heck knows what that means.

Rob:
I just bought one on eBay for $30 shipped.  It’s done and now guaranteed to be widely available.

Jesse James:
Friends secured me one of these at the show so I can’t wait.  Just wish they’d given a heads up because it became a pain to track down for some.  People arrived early to go to the park only to find they held this till later.

The cat seems to be out of the bag from Hasbro regarding these droids.  Because they mentioned the Disney Parks exclusives during the Hasbro panel.  I think they're trying to clarify that situation to an extent.

I was just trolling Rob with my comment... I was not trying to imply anything about the origins of the droid molds or whatever. :)
