The lastest Disney Droid Factory Build-a-Droid, BB-BOO20, has now been added to our visual guide. The figure is a simple repaint of their BB-8 buck which entered the line in June of 2017. This figure joins the previous 4 Halloween-themed droids by being released in August. With only one park currently open in the US, obtaining this figure has become more difficult with many folks resorting to the inflated prices on eBay. No word yet if this will become available on ShowDisney.com or app.
At the time of print, only The Rise of Skywalker set and the Sandcrawler playset are currently on the app. We’d highly recommend the Sandcrawler especially for fans of The Mandalorian.
But speaking of available sets, if you have a Disney Store Outlet near you, now is a good time to find some very cheap droids. The Last Jedi droid two-pack rang up for just over $3!
Our Disney Droid Factory Guide is still only missing just one entry from being complete. The Rise of Resistance set, which does consist of 4 different versions, was released just prior to pandemic quarantines and shut-downs. The set can be found on eBay but typically at double the cost so until Disneyland reopens on the West Coast we’ll need to be patient. With that said, if you happen to have access to this set, we’d love to hear from you.
On another note, if you missed it, we have now created a Hasbro Droid Depot Build-a-Droid Guide for the new Galaxy’s Edge Trading Post figures from Target. We have been toying with creating a BAD Guide for all of Hasbro’s past customizable droids in the near future. If that is something you would like to see added to the site, please let us know on our socials or email.
Below you will find BB-BOO20’s entry in the guide and fingers crossed we will see both a Holiday season-themed droid and a four-pack inspired by media from the Saga (might we suggest doing a second Clone Wars set, or perhaps a Mandolorian-themed one).
