PHOTOS: NEW CB-23 Interactive Droid and Action Figure, 4-LOM Action Figure, and Jawa Patch Arrive at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Droid Depot has some brand-new wares for visitors to Batuu. Just in time for Life Day celebrations at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there’s tons of new cargo to swap credits for!
CB-23 Interactive Remote Control Droid with Authentic Sounds – $120
The newest droid arrival hails from the Star Wars Resistance animated series. CB-23 is Poe Dameron’s droid, and in his words, “Don’t mind CB-23, kid. She’s a little…particular.” Colored in bold red and teal, this special new droid was first announced earlier this week during the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge merchandise panel as part of D23’s ongoing virtual event this year.
According to Wookiepedia, CB-23 was a BB-series astromech droid with feminine programming who was a member of the Resistance in 34 ABY. She was assigned to Commander Poe Dameron while BB-8 was stationed on the Colossus with Kazuda Xiono. After Dameron took back BB-8 before going on a mission to Jakku, CB-23 replaced him in the mission on the Colossus platform.
The remote-control droid even comes with its own exclusive CB-23 personality chip embedded within.
Of course, you can always purchase additional personality chips, also available at Droid Depot.
CB-23 Droid Depot Action Figure – $12.99
If you don’t have enough room inside your starfighter for a larger droid, there are two new droid figures available as well, starting with the CB-23 Droid Depot figure.
Similar to the Star Wars Droid Factory series, these smaller droid figures can go anywhere on your desk or shelf of collectibles.
4-LOM Action Figure – $12.99
If it’s a bounty hunter you’re after, this 4-LOM action figure is also now available at the Droid Depot. You may remember this cold and calculating killer from Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back as one of the mercenaries hired by Darth Vader to capture Han Solo.
Lastly, if you’d like to wear your love of droids and all things scavenging on your sleeve, there’s this new Droid Patch featuring a Jawa and the words “Refurbish. Sell. Scavenge.” almost in the shape of a recycling symbol. Make sure you haul out any recyclable droids next time you spot a sandcrawler in your neighborhood.
The patch can be temporarily applied to clothes using the sticky backing it comes with. However, you can also sew on the patch for a more permanent application.
