F' it. I'm in. One of the droids will probably be a mouse droid. Really hope some get the stencil-like graphics like a few of the black series holiday figures instead of just colored sections in a holiday theme.

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."

Sweet.  Glad its been confirmed and I'm not getting some weird off-scale droids.

Hopefully these are all new and not re-issued droids from previous years, like they packaged with the Halloween droids (I loved those, but at least you knew what you were getting).

Here is what he said on twitter:

"If the art is any indication, there will be 2 gonk droids, 2 astromechs, a mouse droid and the surprise droid. Iíll go out on a limb and say itís a holiday repaint of B2EMO."

A repaint of B2Ö he does look like a box so it make sense.

Hmph. I wonder which comment came first? Or if his definition of "new" droids does not include repaints of "old" droids?

If the artwork is what we are getting, I am definitely cool with the 2 gonk droids, less so the 2 previosuly-released astromechs unless they change it up with graphics on the body.

Protocol droids would be awesome and help me get over the creepy McQuarrie C3PO released a long time ago.

Picture showing some of the pieces is now up on ShopDisney. Nice. If these are any indication, we won't get a deco that's been released before. I do hope that is the only BB droid in the set.

Son of a...

So, I bought this in October and stashed it so I could open it with the kids... and then completely forgot about it until this week.  We were so busy with LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy and LEGO Star Wars advent sets that I completely forgot about it.

Anyway, I finally get around to opening it up tonight and I got a DUD.  I got an extra day two bag in place of my day 14 bag, so now I have an extra droid leg and a headless astromech.  FML.


Going to reach out to see if there is anything ShopDisney can do, but since I bought it almost 3 months ago I'm guessing I am S.O.L..   :-[

I finally opened all my bags and luckily got all the right parts.

Does anyone know if there are official designations for these droids yet?  I did a few Google searches and nothing came up.
