What do you guys think of the upcomming droid factory figures? I personally think this is a good way to get the pilots and their R2 units for all the starfighters. What do you all think?

The basic Legacy figures will have a droid part packed in where if you collect a certain number you can build a droid, simalar to the marvel legends line.Wal-Mart will have the first wave as exclusives.

Cool, as long as they fit together well. Some of the Marvel Legends stuff does not fit well.

I really can't understand why they are putting figures like Han and Vader in these packs? It is a droid set right? Wink Maybe they didn't think they'd sell well without a major character?

I wonder if they'll have a playset like the vintage factory?

I don't know if I like the fact the droid you assemble looks like C-3PO. Could have done something better.

I can't wait.

I plan to collect only a few of them; just for the r2 units and their pilots for their starfighters.

I think the 'Droid Factory' is a cool new gimick!

I really hope you can mix and match the Droid parts though! I'd love to make my own protocol droid with parts from all the other droid factory protocol droids.

That is the general idea. Being able to mix and mathc your build a figures. I think it will be a cool idea to get some customs.

I read the news over at the Hasbro website as well and do not like a few things about the Droid Factory line now. :roll: First being the figures that the droids are bundled with for the C-3PX BAF and second that you need to buy six sets for the one BAF droid. Why couldn't Hasbro put the head and torso in one, both arms in a second and finally both legs for a third set or include the pieces in basic figures. Confused I assume the price will be $9.99 like the Order 66 2-packs Question

I really like this idea and will try to be getting them all.

Love the idea of the "build-a-figure" - it opens it up for more, larger "build-a-figure" figures and/or scenes/dioramas.

THe first wave is a Wal-Mart exclusive and is $9.99. The remaining waves later on are also supposed to be $9.99.

$9.99 is not that bad for 2 and 1/4 figures considering 1 is $6.63-6.99.
