Interesting and a tad bit surprising, hopefully these will still be hanging around at Xmas time so I can pick it up when I'm down there...

Hmm... I kinda like last year's all white version better. I might go after this if I have some extra cash.

Say R2-H16, that's a mighty fine touque you got there, eh?

I'll be tracking this figure down for sure, dontcha know.

I'm in trouble.  I want this, the bluetooth commlink, the Starspeeder.  POVERTY.

If they'd repaint the speeder, I'd rebuy.  It's in my top 3 vehicles I own and I'd love to see them make a yellow and blue one.

That droid is great.  I'm a sucker for white domes on R2s.

I expect R2-LVS for The King's birthday.

R2-LUV for Valentine's.

Then R2-DRNK for St. Patrick's Day.

R2-RBOR for Arbor Day.

I wouldn't worry too much about availability. The R2-BOO was still around last week. I think that one finally disappear a little after Halloween. My guess is this one will replace R2-BOO and be around until the new year. Heck, they even had R2-D60 until the 60th anniversary ended at the end of September.

Is there a checklist of these?
Title: Re: 2016 Droid Factory R2-H16
Post by: Jesse James on October 19, 2016, 07:22 PM
I thought Jeff posted one somewhere recently (not really a check list, just a list of what's done), but off the top of my head...

-R2-D60 (blue/white R3-type unit w/the clear dome)
-R2-D2 Holographic (clear blue R2-D2)
-R2-B00 (Halloweenie droid)
-R5-M4 (Black & Orange R5 Unit)
-R4-D23 (hardest one to get...  silver red & blue R4 unit)
-TFA Droid 4-Pack
-Rogue One Droid 4-Pack (just released)
-R2-H15 (Holiday Droid from last year)
-R2-H16 (Holiday Droid this year we're talking about now)

Each of these has its own thread here at this point I believe, so that's kind of a checklist unto itself.

And of course this isn't counting the now absurd array of astromechs and variants you can make at the park, quite a  few of which are part of the "canon" as it were.

Thanks! R2-D23 is the one we don't have. Figures. :-)

When I say hard to get, I still got one for a very fair price on Ebay...  One of the only figures I ever bought on Ebay that I didn't own already in some capacity and get for its "cost".  That said, it was sold only at that one Disney convention you had to pay a lot to get into, only at Disney Land (IIRC), so I think I paid $20-ish shipped?  That's not bad.  That's quite tolerable to me, haha.

I mean they cost like $14 or so as it is I think?  So you figure the shipping fees, this person's time/energy and cost to get into that show...  It was a quite fair price.  I don't think prices on them spiked or anything either, they're still around. 

The droid's a very cool color pattern too...  Looks like something royalty would have with them.  Very snazzy.

I love these droids though.  I, as my buddies who help me get them have said, am a droid-a-holic at this point.

God help me if they start doing other build a droid things like 3PO's or whatever.

So when are the idiots at Disney World going to put this figure on their store app? I could have shipped these things out to everyone by now.  >:(

Maybe I'll go down to Downtown Disney.
