In a world that is ever becoming more customizable, Disney will be bringing a Droid Factory to Disney World for y’all to play with.
Star Wars fans will be able to assemble their own droids at the Tattoine Traders store, where they can choose between tons of different combinations to make a droid of their own that will be packaged like the real deal.
From the official blog:
[T]he Droid Factory has 71 different pieces to create the 3 ¾-inch figures! To get started, guests chose a dome, a body and legs offered in a variety of colors and styles (Cody said that availability of various parts and colors may change). There are optional third legs and novelty hats that can be added.
“We wanted lots of options for [the Droid Factory],” continued Cody. “There are literally thousands of combinations making each droid unique. Guests can also name their droids with sticker sheets provided at checkout.”
Three domes – R6, R8 and R9 – were created exclusively for this experience at Disney Parks. Cody also told me the multi-colored ear hats were inspired by Jedi Mickey’s Astromech droid, R2-MK. Four additional hats arrive later this summer including a Goofy hat, a pirate hat, a fedora and a Yoda cap.
I’m sure all the kids would love this. I might just have to stop by if I ever end up going out there. It’ll be launching during their Star Wars weekends that start on May 18 and run to June 10.
