It's the line up of the 5 droids parked outside the Droid Depot in GE. The nice thing about the R4 is that is blue, if you can't really tell in the photo.
A couple more interesting items:
Doug Chiang concepts of proto-astromechs from the prequel era:
Does the interrogator Droid count as an Astromech, seeing as its made from modified R2 Domes?
I like how the cashier is reading a book instead of going through their phoneI acquired two new astromechs for my collection. I don't normally post that here but its a fun story so I decided to share.
A perfect storm of events occurred that saw my wife and I without our three kids for a weekend. Her sister took our boys and her parents took our daughter and we decided we deserved a weekend get-away. One of her co-workers said the Columbus zoo was awesome and we decided to spend the weekend in Columbus.
As I was looking into the trip I checked out the toy store scene online and found a cool looking vintage toy store, Big Fun Columbus. We went and waited in line about 20 minutes to get in (store capacity was 8 - 10 people). Once inside it was awesome and I found two droids I had been looking for. R4-A22 and R3-T2.
While waiting to have someone get the droids from the case I overheard someone in line in front of me. Earlier that week Twenty One Pilots had filmed their new music video there. That was part of the reason they were so packed as well. It was a cool experience and I do enjoy that band. My wife and I watched the video in the car after leaving and it was just a cool experience.
Here is the the video:
Josh has his drums set up right in front of the Star Wars display case and those droids I got were in there during filming, you cannot see them as most of the toys were covered during filming. They were also selling those blue dragons from the video, at $5 apiece.
Really hoping we get an astromech pack from the Mandalorian soon. Would love to see not only both 'taxi' mechs, but the black and white R5, the gondola droid, and even that bizarre harvester droid w/ the prequel style R5 dome.
