A wind-up toy has arrived at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the form of BD-1, the trusted companion of Cal Kestis in the 2019 video game “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” and its newly released sequel “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.”
BD-1 Wind-Up Toy with Light – $11.99
Take a journey into Keystone Clothiers at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where we found the loyal mechanical companion to Jedi Knight Cal Kestis.
The droid is colored in the standard white and red color scheme used throughout the game, although players have the option to customize BD-1’s paint job.
The wind-up mechanism is located on his right leg, which you can wind to make him walk along a surface.
The left leg features an extra panel not present on the right, as the wind-up mechanism is located on that section.
He looks artificially distressed, with artificial aging applied to the plastic paint job to make BD-1 more in line with his game appearance.
His face features one visual sensor and one floodlight on its face. These units are also equipped with scanners, a scomp link, and a holoprojector.
The original BD-1 unit in the game and its newly-released sequel “Jedi: Survivor” began his journey assisting Jedi Master Eno Cordova in researching the ancient Zeffo people, a culture long extinct by the time of the Galactic Empire. After having a vision of the Jedi’s extinction, Cordova hid a holocron, which holds data in the Star Wars universe, of every child in the galaxy sensitive to the Force and potentially able to become Jedi. Cordova wipes BD-1’s memories and leaves him behind for the one who will rebuild the order — Jedi Knight Cal Kestis, the game’s protagonist.
Through the game, BD-1 acts as a companion for Kestis, providing him with hints, getting him past obstacles, and giving him “stims” to boost the player’s health.
The artificial distressing continues on top as well. There’s also a button which turns on his floodlight on his face.
The toy makes for a nice desktop ornament if you wish to commemorate the “Star Wars Jedi” game series. Let us know if you’ll add this to your collection in the comments below.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
“Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” released in 2019 to critical success, prompting immediate consideration for a sequel. The original game follows a fallen Padawan named Cal Kestis, whose training was never completed due to the Jedi Purge as depicted in “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.” While knowledgeable in the Force and with a lightsaber, he was never officially granted the rank of Jedi Knight. Kestis journeys throughout the galaxy to protect a holocron filled with a list of Force-sensitive children from falling into the hands of the Inquisitors and the Empire, both out to destroy the last remnants of the Jedi Order.
“Star Wars Jedi: Survivor” follows protagonist Cal Kestis five years after the events of Fallen Order. Cal must stay one step ahead of the Empire’s constant pursuit as he continues to feel the weight of being one of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy. With new abilities and a new storyline, the more experienced Jedi is expected to offer a great sequel game experience. “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor” is available exclusively on current-generation platforms — PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and fans can purchase the game at their local stores or through the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Steam, and the Epic Games Store.
