BREAKING NEWS: Protocol Droids Coming To Disney Parks Droid Factory!

Posted by Paul | March 15, 2017 at 05:24 PM ET

We have rumored this for a while now and we have received additional proof today, although it's still officially a rumor at this point! And this is a fascinating development. JTA has just learned that Disney Parks is restarting its hugely popular Droid Factory in the form of PROTOCOL DROIDS. Now, we don't know if they're focusing solely on 3PO-series styled droids or if this line will include other protocol droid-like sculpts (i.e. HK-series, CZ-series, RA-7-series. etc.) We have also learned that the Astromech Droid parts, while no new parts are coming, will remain at the parks. A second "Protocol Droid" kiosk will be placed next to the Astromech Droid kiosk and visitors to the park will be able to build both types of droids. We have also learned that these parts are due to hit theme parks soon, but the guess is that they'll be formally announced at Star Wars Celebration and perhaps debut on May the 4th this year. OH! And the huge news? C-3PO is believed to be part of the first wave; a figure we have been waiting to see made with this popular sculpt for YEARS now. More to come as we follow this story. Stay tuned!
