Oh man... I would totally grab a few of those if I saw them at the store. The package is awesome, you're right.

TBH, I would rather hey just expand on the 3.74" scale. Why divide the Collecting community once again with 1.5" offerings, just to resell all the older figures in a different size? There's so many unmade Droid characters that could still be released in the basic scale. As well as updates to the older ones that should have been done right the first time. Or even reissues that people simply missed the first time.

I guess it's the small scale I don't get. What can you do with a tiny figure such as this, view it through a magnifying glass? Maybe it's aimed at very small people or toddlers. As much as Droid fan that i am, I can safely pass on this line.

This is clearly a product conceived and scaled to meet a specific price point and blind-box purchase pattern. I agree with MF that it would have been so much cooler if these had been 3.75" scale, even if the tooling was super simplified in order to produce them cheap enough.

That said... at the same time I am kinda grateful that they're not, meaning I can ignore them and not have to try and track them all down! :D I just hope this doesn't mean that they scale back on the 3.75" buildable droid releases we have enjoyed in the last few years.

This just seems a nice impulse buy at the cash register, and I'm sure, at the parks. Similar to their blind bagged Park series miniature figures (similar to Micro machine characters) they have had at the parks for years, and which they did several specific Star Wars series.

I picked one up last week here in Canada. I was surprised to see them at the cash at Disney Store. I really love the Sandcrawler packaging. I'd love to see a second series of these, introducing some new Droid types.

I think they should make something like these as pencil toppers for kids. Those are huuuge with the elementary school crowd. Include replaceable/removable eraser domes in different styles. Keep the legs articulated to rest your pencil at different angles. A real winner!

If anyone else trying to put together a complete set and wants to trade their extras, lmk. I'm looking for the all green and the all red droids. I have duplicates of several, just let me know which ones you need.

Picked up 6 of these so far, R2 seams to be the most common or it is just my luck, I got multiples. Is anyone interested in the little sandcrawlers they come in?

Well, I wanted to find it, but with no luck. Moreover, when I have already lost the hope, I found, but so far from me... And now I do not want to have illusions. it was anything like this.

I'm still looking for the green droid if anyone has an extra. I have these available for trade.

Are these still being made? Went on the 2nd to DL, but completely forgot about these. Didn't notice any, and think I would have spotted them in Star Trader if they were there. I did buy the whole crew from Solo 3.75" though, including L3, that I NEVER saw in stores.
