This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Guests of Walt Disney World will be able to join Disneyland in celebrating Star Tours 35th anniversary. Star Tours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios opened in 1989 and is therefore only 33 years old, whereas the Disneyland attraction opened in 1987. But that won’t stop the east coast from celebrating its elder with a Star Tours 35th Anniversary REX figure.


Guests can find the figure at Star Wars Trading Post in Disney Springs.

35th Anniversary REX Figure – $200

The iconic character from Star Tours is seen here in a little traveling case with his arms sticking out. He still bears his usual friendly expression that guests of all ages will remember.

RX-24 has light-up eyes and authentic character phrases, enabled by an on/off switch. He is a limited edition of 1,000.

RX-24 made his debut in the original Star Tours attraction, which ran from 1987 at Disneyland and 1989 at Walt Disney World through 2010. He referred to himself as Captain REX, and flew the Starspeeder 3000.

It then became Star Tours: The Adventures Continue in 2011, and C-3P0 replaced RX-24.

Stop by and see the Star Tours 35th Anniversary REX figure yourself at Disney Springs.

RX-24, now known as R-3X, can be found in Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. After crash landing on Batuu, he was given a new look by Mubo of Droid Depot and programmed as a DJ. See him in action in our video below.

  1. I remember him. We booked a trip with Star Tours once and he was our pilot. His recklessness and total disregard for safety put the lives of everyone aboard in jeopardy!
