st Mos Eisley News Brief: Lost Droid Factory Line still Hitting!

May 27, 2015, 10:35:03 AM by Darth Spice
Thanks to a report on Rebelscum and several tips from our good friends at Yakface.com, I recently scored a complete set of the "lost" Droid Factory line.  They are showing up at Go Calendar toy stores and according to many, locations seem to be spread out or non-existent for most Troopers.  Click the link below to see if you have a store nearby. They are also quite pricey at $19.99 each and you should also keep in mind there is nothing new to here other than package variation. All of the figures have been previously released in the Droid Factory or Black Series collection!
