3.75" BB-8 Hits Disney Parks!

Look what new figure has just hit Disney Parks today! JTA friend Mario M. has found the new BB-8 figure in California this morning at his local Disney theme park! As you recall, this figure was revealed at SWCO this past April.

    anyone know has this stacks against the Yazflow one? any side-by-side pics out there?

    • You saw Disney’S Chopper figure, right? Do you really need to ask this?

      • bmales01

        I did and I own 3 of em. Wasnt sure how much you can improve upon a ball with a head

        • Littlegreenwiseguy

          I would hope it at least has a drawer to put the map chip in it and a little “thumbs up” torch.

          • bmales01

            I would hope too, but these things may be way too small to do this. plus, there’s always the kids choking hazard issues

    • RumSleg

      I second this question. The Droid Factory versions have been better than the Hasbro versions, but I’m not sure how much can be done to BB-8. He doesn’t look any different.

    • Eradicator

      A side by side picture would be nice to see. Anyone?

  • Logan

    @bmales01 Not yet, they just came out this morning. Patience my young Padawan.

    • bmales01

      just curious. I like to know before I buy πŸ™‚ and this one will be available on the Dizney app for 5 mins sometime this week

      • Logan

        Your not alone. I’m curious to see if it has any hidden surprises. Can’t waitf to pop one open.

      • CT-7567

        Did they ever put Chopper on that app?

        • bmales01

          They did indeed for a short time. I got 3 of them myself.

  • James

    this one on the disney parks app?

  • Carbonite_Hydrates

    Where’s this super epic Sandcrawler rumored to not be a rumor and coming to Disney Parks?

    • shane

      I think it will be in TVC packaging and released next spring with TVC. Whether that makes sense or not, IDK, but why would they advertise that at the same exact time as TVC. I need to know too, that’s an absolute must have for me.

      • Boba Fred

        is it gonna be a Disney Park exclusive? ;/ cuz I’m not willing to pay scalper prices.

        • Carbonite_Hydrates

          You’ll have to buy yourself a ticket for Disney Hollywood Studios or Disney Land.

        • shane

          If I can I’ll just put an x amount of $ aside and hope for the best. Noone seems to know anything now.

    • CT-7567
      • bmales01

        This dark shadow could be anything. No way to tell its a Sandcrawler

      • Carbonite_Hydrates

        Watch it be a carrying case that’s 3 inches thick, with no details on the back – just flat brown plastic – and the front is a grid similar to the inside of a vintage carrying case. And the treads pop open to store accessories.

  • Captain Yorr

    I will be obsessively watching the app all week and let JTA know asap. I’m well known for never giving up

  • lordtyrannusaurus

    I can’t wait to grab one of these and give it a nice paint wash. The head shape is closer to the prop than the Hasbro one. I’m looking forward to it!

  • Ah I hope I manage to grab one of these when they pop up in the app.

  • Jesus’s Best Friend Floyd

    2 moving parts. should be $5 tops.

  • Hans Jolo

    Sick of this Disney exclusive crap. Who makes a freakin’ journey there every year to get this stuff? Not everybody can do this, then we’re forced to pay scalper prices on ebay for this crap. Disney sucks. Disney app my a__! Put this stuff in the national stores!

    • Xo Tica

      It’s even worse if you live outside of the US, especially when E Bay seller charge about $ 30 for shipping on top of $ 30- 50 for the Disney BAD.
      Plus on top of that I’ve never had I single US collector even manage to get me one.

      • Initially I had the same problem as you, myself being from Spain. You should visit The Astromech Collection page on Facebook, plenty of fellow collectors there willing to help other astrofans πŸ™‚

        PS: sorry Paul for the surreptitious advertising πŸ˜‰

        • Xo Tica

          I’m not on Facebook , never have been and never will be. Thanks for your help.πŸ‘

      • Hans Jolo

        I feel bad for you guys abroad. Disney is missing out on sales because of these moves. So much more product would sell if they made these available out side their parks! You shouldn’t have to rely on a third party to get these!

        • Xo Tica

          Disney doesn’t care and still has a licensing agrreement with Hasbro which puts geographical restrictions on where things can be sold.

  • Darth Bre

    They should really do these in two packs, but will see how this compares to the hasby version. Hopefully they release chopper in his imperial disguise too.

  • Xo Tica

    I’ll stick to my superior Bandai kit version as opposed to trying to get this super exclusive figure , which is more exclusive than SDCC exclusives.

  • Roq

    3.75 since when and how many POA?!!

  • This was to be released in two weeks time, during the D23 Expo. It would be nice to know the SKU to track it down πŸ™‚

  • Brian B.

    I usually like to think I’m good at catching differences between figure releases, but I can’t seem to figure it out on this one. Can someone help me out here?

  • Fiery Little One

    Tempting.

  • 1POA figure: head rotates 360ΒΊ, that’s all. But it is like a roly-poly: the inner grey ball is heavy, thus allowing BB-8 to wobble around but keep standing up. Antennae are detachable too.

    • Xo Tica

      What a rip off. For twice the price you can buy Bandai BB8/ R2D2 kit .

    • George Stark

      Can you post pic of it next to hasbro 3.75 figures please?
