    I thought it must be, but the picture was cropped enough that I couldn't tell

    Also, that line of of droids is unlike most pages of the Visual Guides. Thanks for the pic. I REALLY want these characters now. A few of those could be BAD??? but won't be

    You might be right, Koth. Here's where I got my info:

    http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/KR2-M80

    "KR2-M80 was an Astromech droid operating in the Spice mines of Kessel more than a decade prior to the Battle of Yavin."

    "
    This droid was first seen prior to the release of Solo: A Star Wars Storyas part of a Disney Parks exclusive Droid Factory action figure set, where it was named "R2-F1P." It was later given the name "KR2-M80" in Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide. This assumes the more recent source is correct."

    The creator of M80, Mike Filippidis, called his droid R2-M80 when it was in Rogue One. He said that the additional 'K' in the visual dictionary may have been a typo.

    While I like Wookieepedia, sometimes the material used so close to release may not be 100% complete, or reference other sources, as in this case.

    All I know, is that it is time for some new BAD figures.

    I wonder if there is any chance of them going outside the box with new parts. I got as many of the Astromechs as I could and I have I think 6 of the Protocol droids. They were a good idea, but I didn't feel the need to have all of them in every color. I want some newness.

    Just in case anyone cares, the 6 I have are (Silver 3PO, Black 3PO, Blue 'eyebrows' 3PO, Gold CZ, Black vendor, and Red vendor)

    Here's the rundown, then:

    R2-F1P (renamed KR2-M80): Spice mines of Kessel

    R5-232: ?

    R2-S8: ?

    R5-PHT: Imperial

    Can anyone else fill the two blanks?


    All four of the droids can be spotted in those early scenes on Corellia, when Han and Qi'ra are trying to get off-world. I easily spotted all four in various shots. If you're wanting to know the owners, you can pretty much forget it. Pablo and those guys rarely get into the minutiae of the background droids, beyond giving them names and stating what type of droid they are.

    Getting the BOO droid made me look at ebay for this set. I found it at retail price and free shipping! Better deal than from Disney. Another tick off the ol' checklist.
    Naughtiest lines in Star Wars:
    You came in that thing?! You're braver than I thought!
    Luke, at that speed will we be able to pull out in time?
    Back door huh? Good idea.

    Being the pedant that I am I have to correct this. Though it wasn't on the referred page when I just looked. KR2-M80 and R2-F1P are two different droids. One on Kessel and one on Corellia.
    It may be a case one has been reused to create the other. Like R5-D4 and R5-D8!
    These ARE the droids we're looking for!
