NO, I meant a Hasbro TVC equivalent of the new Ahsoka droid that resembles the old retro Kenner R2-D2..the very droid you yourself posted a screengrab shot of from the newest trailer.
Ah, I get it now. Well, considering how infrequently we get droids of any kind in TVC, and the fact that $16.99 is only a couple dollars more than what the Disney parks charge for their single-carded droids, I wouldn't turn my nose up and grouse about any all-new astromech in TVC. In fact, the only reason I refused to buy SHW is because it used one of the worst astromech sculpts in the modern line. My disdain for that mold is on the same level as my disgust for rocket-firing R5-D4. The price definitely wasn't the issue on that one for me.Not actual Retro R2 rerelease, a screen accurate mostly-new mold of whatever this droid designation will be.
If the R2-SHW is any indication, they'll easily charge full price or even an exclusive markup for a small 4-piece figure with 5 points of articulation and no extras
I was also at Disneyland and DTD on Saturday on Saturday 7/22. Saw plenty of BB-YOU and some of the bartender R2s. But no sign of this Halloween C1 anywhere.Yakface is reporting this year's Halloween droid has been spotted. https://yakfaceforums.com/main/2023/07/24/new-halloween-droidfactory-c1-mnst4-hitting-parks/
The news story indicates these in the parks but I did not see them in Disneyland 7/22, 7/23, or downtown Disney 7/24. Hopefully these will make an appearance on ShopDisney.
Love the Frankenstein chopper! We got a witch, ghost, vampire and frankenstein (who is basically a zombie) next a werewolf?
I think Betoo is long gone. I had a family friend check during their trip to Anaheim two months ago, and he was nowhere to be found.Does anyone know if Droid Factory B2EMO is still available at the Disney Parks? I have family going to Florida this week (I'm in the UK) so was hoping they could pick this up.
I was going to say that in my previous post, but then I realized that we all pretty much know that Hasbro doesn't give a damn about droids anymore. It's a given at this point. It's a sad reality that I've begrudgingly accepted.Or Hasbro gets their act together and starts including more droid characters in TVC. Andor is already slept on and B2 is pretty toyetic, what gives?
Maybe you should stop watching these shows specifically to spot Droids and take a more relaxed approach without the eagle eye? lolThis is becoming an exercise in self-torture, since we're still waiting on DF sets to represent BoBF and Mando season 3, but here's some potential candidates from yesterday's two-episode premiere of Ahsoka.

I'd buy all of these except the red R4.
There were astromechs very early on in the first season of Mandalorian.How far in were previous shows before the droids hit?
Mandalorian set had to be post S1 as it had gondola droid thin

You forgot possibly one of the most wanted droid updates…
Oh I absolutely agree. I just don’t have faith in Hasbro at this point to complete the 96 anytime soon. Even with Ev9 & 8D8 being in the 96 as well as both being part of new media they were ignored. At least until a cost cutting subpar 8D8.I would NEVER forget my beloved 2-1B, lol. The only reason I didn't include him, is because I want, nay, demand, that Hasbro give us a proper OG96 update of that character in TVC. I lost a lot of confidence in Disney to give us decent non-astromech figures in their Droid Factory packs, after that mostly subpar OWK set came out. The NED-B was barely passable, but the 1-JAC was straight up junk. 2-1B deserves more than a mediocre figure.
