Do you remember THIS HUGE SURPRISE from a couple of years ago that shockingly showed up online (as well as a few random loose figures at store locations)? The full case assortment doesn’t even make an appearance on eBay anymore. How many of the couple hundred collectors who bought the complete set online still have their set? Hasbro denied that any were produced and released, yet a couple of hundred cases made its way to Calendars. It’s a terrible shame this collection got canceled. It was home to the yet-to-be-released Clone Captain Rex and A-wing Pilot in addition to the Build A Droid R5-X2 and R8-B7. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Hasbro finally got all four of those remaining figures released one day? You can see all of the officially released Legacy Collection  figures in detail HERE.

While rummaging through some stuff in my shed this week, I came across a series of two-paks from the 30 (77-07) line. These six Walmart exclusives offered very little newness to the line (the buildable C3PX notwithstanding), and it got me thinking about what’s missing with the Hasbro line post-2014. (more….)

The Disney Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset is front and center at Disney’s Mickeys of Hollywood store. JTA reader Kevin K. sends us the report: “Hadn’t seen anyone visually confirm it, so here you go. It’s out in full force. Got mine and the R4-H18 but the Droid was up front at the Mickey’s of Hollywood Store. Remember, Disney will send it to the front for you to pick up when you leave. So you don’t have to lug it around.”
Our friends at Jedi Business have shared an image on social media which shows the latest Disney Droid Factory astromech Droid: R4-H18. This translucent droid will make a nice addition to this annual release schedule.

Do you want to see the Disney Droid Factory Sandcrawler in motion? Do you want to hear it’s sound effects and see how how it lights up? JTA reader and friend Logan has taken video for us and we put it up on our YouTube channel for your viewing pleasure! Check it out!
Alright, here we go, folks! With EXTRA SPECIAL thanks to friend and JTA reader Logan, we’re able to provide you an exclusive look at the interior and exterior of the Disney Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset. This thing is beyond impressive. It comes loaded with lights and sounds (video forthcoming) and has INCREDIBLE sculpting within its four walls that has completely blown us away. The detail is overwhelming and has plenty of room for a hoard of droids. This is going to be a hot item for 3.75″ collectors. Disney went above and beyond here. We should count ourselves very, very lucky! By the way, measurements are 20″ long, 9.75″ wide in the front and 9″ wide in the back.
UPDATE: The Sandcrawler’s full features include: retractable claw, opening light-up cockpit, motion activated sound, lights, sound effects, trap door, motorized elevator, light-up furnace.
And here are some awesome new loose images of the pack-in “GONK” Droid, which looks to be based off of The Vintage Collection Special Action Figure Set figure by Hasbro. We will never see the vintage Kenner blue one ever in 3.75″ scale updated?
Here are some awesome new loose images of the pack-in Jawa to the Disney Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset. The figure comes with ball-jointed shoulders, but the rest of the figure is pretty static. Still, it has a pretty decent sculpt.
BREAKING NEWS! We now have a closer look at the pack-in figures to the Sandcrawler Playset. Both figures look minimally articulated, but I wonder if that GONK Droid is the first Build A Droid figure of this particular droid type. Imagine a future Droid Factory Lars’ Homestead GONK Droid because you know Hasbro is never going to give it to us.
We’re saving the full gallery and review for Halloween, October 31st this yer, but you can check out a first look sneak peek at R4-BOO18, the latest figure in Disney’s Droid Factory line.
