2017 Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset
« on: April 13, 2017, 07:39 PM »
I know nothing about this other than it was revealed at the Disney panel today - I guess the smaller shadow is supposed to be a Droid Factory Power Droid sculpt.

If this turns out to be as nice as the Disney Starspeeder Playset did, I'll plunk down the cash for it without blinking.

That petition finally paid off!


Now let's get those Sail Barge and DS playsets on deck.  :)

Can't wait to see the full reveal.

When this was presented the folks from Disney said something like "you have lots and lots of droids, so now you need a place to play with them" and then they showed this slide.

The smaller silhouette is for a GNK droid which will come with the set.

I think it's great that other droid sculpts are finding their way into this line - cause once they have a sculpt and the buildable parts you can easily see them either including that sculpt more and more in various box sets or carded offerings in different designs/colors.

So that one is bigger than the vintage rc one.

I'm hardly believing the great news coming out of celebration! I hope they'll put some nice set details into this, but as long as it's a larger mold with a nice paint app, I'll be happy.

Remeber that Sand Crawler from the custom boards?  If we got one of that size I would crap my pants!

This is interesting and I really hope it's as nicely done as their Starspeeder is.  That ship is among top 3 vehicles overall.  I just absolutely love how well it's done.

Shortly after it was announced there were rumors it'd be out for Christmas, but I haven't heard anything since then...

Again, if it's as nice as the Starspeeder, I'm into it.  I just had this out the other night, and it's friggin great.
