If that's more than $25 or $30, it's crazy.

Oh, c'mon...$50 is the best case scenario here. It comes with an astro droid, don't those go for $20 by themselves?

Considering there are actually 2 vehicles in this set?  I'm thinking it's $59.99 at least.

A droid a sled and an escape pod...  I think $40-$60 is likely here unless the vehicle things are exceedingly simple.  That said, I want it.  I want two even. 🤷‍♂️

The official name for this thing is the First Order Short-Range Evacuation Vehicle with Fleet Transport and First Order R5 Droid. It looks like there are at least four different variations of the droid that comes with the set - Black droid with either white/gray, orange, red, or blue panel colors.

There are some pics in the Rebelscum Forums.   I was surprised to see it was much larger than I was picturing.  Also sounds like it has full electronics - sounds and lights.

Thanks to a Yakface Tweet for the heads up.

Oh wow, I didn't realize there was that much more to it.  Not happy about this four droids business...

I wonder if people will start selling the droids to offset the vehicle cost.  I'd like to figure out how to get all four without buying 4 sets.

Iím probably gonna go for all 4...  be neat to find some kind of way to display them like theyíre docked in the ship, and maybe make them a way to display FO troopers I have around them. 🤷‍♂️

If any of you guys want more than one of the vehicles, but donít care about the droids, Iíll generously subsidize your extras!

Yeah, I'm not either.

I'm going to have a friend get me the White and Blue highlights droids versions since those are the most different from B-A-Ds we've gotten before, hopefully this item will stick around long enough to allow for me to get the other two, but there's no way I'm going to get four to keep MIB and four to open.

The Galaxy's Edge Build-a-Droid items finally "broke" me it seems - I got the color change droids, but only two of each set and two color change stations, and I've yet to open up any of them, and I probably won't and now with this item, I'll probably never open either of these two sets.  :-\
