    These aren’t the droids I’m looking for.

      Maybe you’ve seen the droid I’m looking for?  He’s about so high and black, boxy with legs, answers to the name of “Gonk”.  If you see him, tell him both my laptop and cell phone ran out of charge YESTERDAY, so he should get his opaque metal ass back home, pronto!

        Oh, one more thing.  If you do see Gonk, please tell him I’d send a text to let him know, but how am I gonna do that, IF MY FREAKING CELL PHONE RAN OUT OF JUICE??!

        Jeez… one of these days, I’m gonna sell that damned droid to the Jawas, they do a Swap Meet once every couple of months nearby, in the parking lot across from the Bantha Burger joint and the Hispanic seafood place, Mariscos Ackbar’s.

       That’s the comment I was looking for.

    I’m not big on Star Wars memorabilia (except for Suckadelic) but that is freaking awesome!

    Do they offer exchanges? Mine had a bad motivator.

    Looks like Disney World finally got on the Freezing You In Carbonite bandwagon as well.  8 inches tall, takes 4 weeks to ship, costs $99.95 plus shipping, but it looks just like you.

    Kinda surprised it took them this long to start doing this.

    I’m eagerly awaiting news of the first super-fan who attempts to buy every possible variation. It’s like trolling Star Wars collectors, haha.

    I wish I could put Star Wars in Carbonite.

    optional third legs…

    Thats cool. Dunno when I’ll get back down there, but I look forward to it! My little one will love it too!

    If only I didn’t have to go to Florida to get these things :(

  10. I had the Droid Factory playset when I was a kid. Endless fun!

    Somewhere in there is _exactly_ the droid I’m looking for!

    They look neat. I hope they plan to expand the parts selection though, there really aren’t that many options in the photos. Also, going by the typical Disney parks prices, these will probably be just expensive enough to make you have to seriously consider your sanity if you buy one.

    I’ve always assumed their overall marketing plan with everything they sell is to make up for that sanity check with kids who’ll cry if they don’t get what they want. The adult-oriented souvenirs are typically not too overpriced and are often pretty nice (though like a typical SoCal resident I’ve been to Disneyland many times but have never bought anything).

    Would be nice if you could design and then print these things directly from some kind of device at home… 

    (Yes, I’m reading Makers.)

    So long you can make a HK-47 droid the meatbags will be happy.

  15. VBartilucci says:

    And how long before they make a boxed set of all 71 pieces so you can mix and match them at home? Anyone?
