Disney showcased new 3.75" droids during Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 at their Galaxy's Edge booth and we've gathered all the details which we could find for you. Have a look to learn more about Disney's up-coming 3.75" Star Wars action figure playset and the new color changing droids!
A new set of four new Black Series 6" figures will be available at Disney Parks this year. The 4-pack will include Kylo Ren, a Mountain Trooper, Commander Pyre and a Mouse Droid. Out of the four figures two are exclusive to the set, Commander Pyre and the Mountain Trooper. At this point we don't know yet how this version of Kylo Ren and the Mouse Droid will be distributed outside of the Disney Parks.
Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Bob Chapek revealed that Galaxy's Edge, Disney's new Star Wars land, will feature a marketplace with exclusive Star Wars toys.
At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests will visit the planet of Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes. Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two attractions that take detail and immersion to the next level: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
Guests will also be able to explore a street market run by a Toydarian, a character first introduced in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” Among his wares will be handcrafted toys made by local artisans, like those seen above.
