Our eagle-eyed, astromech aficionado friends at The Astromech Collection have noticed that in the recent press imagery for the new Star Wars Weekends Jedi Mickey Starfighter a new R2-MK can be seen that uses the Droid Factory/Build-A-Droid sculpt. No word if this is included with the starfighter or if it is part of a new assortment of B.A.D. parts that will be available at the park.

Our friend Brian at EndorExpress.net has alerted us to the news that the Droid Factory/Build-A-Droid attraction has been added to Disneyland in California. You can check out the image above at Mousewait.com.

Yes, we had a lot of fun, the variety on the droid parts was not very extensive, but at the end we were happy what we were able to build. Thanks!

I agree Paul, it can get very expensive, you see ~$66 with tax right there on those six droids :?

My family is taking me to Disney over the summer, and I know already I'm going to buy four droids. I'll get an all black R6 unit, a yellow/white R8, and a blue domed R9 (yet to decide on the body color). However I can't decided what to get for my fourth droid. I could always save the few dollars, but come on! More droids are always welcome. :wink: So what do you guys things? What kind of astromech should I pick up as my fourth droid? :?:

I'm currently on the road to Florida right now, and I think I have decided to get 6 droids now. My R6, R8,and R9 as mentioned above, but I think I'm gonna also get a black/white R5 like the one in the Hoth hanger, as well as a pair of R2 units, which will be yellow and red like the ones seen on the Royal Naboo starship!

Well, Downtown Disney wasn't to fun of a stop. I got a yellow R8 and my yellow R2, however they were missing parts for the other four astromechs I wanted. >< They didn't have any black domes whatsoever, no R3 domes, very few R4 and R7 domes, no red bodies, no blue R9 domes, and not one R2-D2 part. Plus the guy helping was not very helpful in the slightest.

I finally got all the droids I needed at MGM yesterday. The attendant there was super helpful, and found everything I needed for me that wasn't in the main bins. Also, if you spend more than $25 you can buy the Star Tours 3-packs for $10 each, so I picked up four of them. The icing on the cake!!!
