New Halloween & Christmas-Inspired ‘Star Wars’ Droid Figures, Advent Calendar Coming This Year
This year, you can pick up new holiday-inspired droid figurines as we approach spooky season and the holidays! We got a sneak preview of these new items during Star Wars Celebration Anaheim courtesy of Jedi News at SWCA on Twitter.
All told, there are individual droids for both Halloween and Christmas, as well as a droid set for Halloween and an Advent Calendar for Christmas.
First up is a new vampire-inspired droid R7-FNG. he looks like a traditional Astromech droid with a white head and a purple body.
A series of other Halloween-inspired droids ranging the gamut of bats to candy corn, skeletons, and green slime will also be available as a packaged set. The droids will be R2-BOO, R3-BOO17, R4-BOO18, and R5-BOO19.
Around the holidays, we’ll also see the snowman-inspired R6-SN0, complete with a scarf and top hat.
And the new advent calendar coming this year will reportedly create five droids from the different parts within. The casing itself is inspired by a Sandcrawler, and we can see Jawas celebrating the holidays on board on the reverse.
All four of these items will be available sometime later this year, so keep an eye out! And let us know what you think in the comments below!
