I just got back from Disneyland and wanted to post this for those who are visiting Star Trader for the first time. First off, I had an amazing time building my droids!!! It was the first stop I made when the park opened. Star Trader is located right next to Space Mtn. and is pretty close to the park's gates. It is the only store in the park that carries the B.A.D.s. Downtown Disney does not have them in their large Disney retail store. But the C-3PO and R2 2PK were also available in a store selling Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy merch in the Downtown strip. I didn't see the other exclusives here.

The bin holding the pieces is kind of small. I walked right by it at first, but it is located in the back of the store and relatively in the middle. The bin has 4 building stations. 2 of them had the astromech pieces and the other 2 had the protocol pieces. I was lucky finding all the droid pieces. I was able to build the 8 protocols I wanted and the black and orange R6 astromech. I also easily found R-3DO, Chopper, the 2-pack 3-PO with R2, and the 4 pack Clone Wars Droids. They are all located on shelves close to the B.A.D. kiosk. Chopper was the only one that was very close to being sold out and was only at the cashiers.

I do recommend having some sort of blue print of what you want, because it is kind of over-whelming fishing through all the different arms, torsos and legs - making sure they are the right ones. Having another builder with you is also helpful. And as the time went on, the kiosk became really crowded.

The prices were:
2PK R2D2/C-3PO - 24.99
Chopper - 12.99
R-3PO - 12.99
BYOD - 2 for 21.95

Star Trader will also hold them safe in their store until the end of the day while you visit the rest of Disney. I really love these droids and highly recommend any collector to go to the park just for this experience. It was AWESOME!!!!!!

Here are my most wanted from the lists:

1. Kitster/Wald
2. Captain Panaka
3. Senator Palpatine (TPM)
4. Toonbuck Toora
5. Sarrissa Jeng
6. Boba Fett (AOTC)
7. Mosep
8. Solomahal
9. Tzivvzt
10. Sergeant Doallyn
11. Ishi Tib (Palace)
12. Yak Face
13. Taym Dren-garen
14. Fozec
