Thread: Any droid factory collectors here?

  1. #1

    Any droid factory collectors here?

    I can remember a time when you couldn't give the droid factory away. Most went for the R2 and sold off or shelved the rest. Now it's becoming a popular and expensive item.

    I'm seeing non r2 parts sell for good money.

    What say you!

    Here's mine. Only missing a couple pieces .

    I have a bunch of extras

    Like most, I'm going to try and get a completed set along with a 2nd completed R2. I was going to make the droids and display them and still have a complete kit for display. Not sure if I will or not.

    I'm missing 1 axle, 1 R2 leg, center leg and dome. Also the orange tubing.

    The trouble is with the rubber pegs. After 40ish years, they're more deteriorated than useful..

    I loved this toy as a kid! The sad part is I bet a complete set about 6 years ago and my R2-D2 sticker adhesive is coming free

    I do love the UK Palitoy versions better. They come in a blue and tan base. They are super expensive

    I have read here that using a glue stick was an exceptional means of repair. Did you try that?

    Hi Toyman

    I have not tried anything, however that sounds easy enough without getting too messy either? Thanks Pal!

    Yeah, I have been told it works really well. Also isn't considered taboo like paint touch ups are. Completly Accepted by some heavy hitters here

    The best thing i have found is mod podge. Dries clear. Ive used it on vehicle stickers before. Virtually impossible to tell.

    I had my stored away for years and when I opened the bin back up the sticker had separated. I used a glue stick. Worked like a charm.

    I bought a near complete set with a beat up box a few years ago. Tracked down everything that was missing, and it's all together in that box. I did use a glue stick to put the sticker back on.
