Many thanks to "ZiggyKnowsDisney.com" for supplying much of the information contained therein.

The Droid Depot is of course, where you can build your own functional, remote-controlled Droid. However, there are different types of droids you can build. From model kits to pre-made droids all the way up to premium droids, ranging in size from small to a real, authentic R2-D2 that can run you $25,000.00, and that doesn't even include shipping, or airfare to get him back home!

You can choose what type of remote-control droids you want to build, but you can only choose from astromechs, specifically the R-SERIES, or the BB-SERIES. (Personally, I would have liked to build one from the HK line, but that wasn't an option.) If you wish to construct one, it will cost you $99.99 + tax. So first you go up to a cashier, select which type of astromech you wish to build, and pay for it. Then they give you the blueprints on how to put one together, and a basket to collect all of your necessary parts.

Next you go to a long conveyor belt that carries all the various parts you will need, you'll have many different head shapes and colors to choose from.

For the BB-SERIES, you'll select a: dome, dome connection plate, body sphere, and motivator.

For the R-SERIES, you'll select a: dome, body, center leg, and set of side-legs. (This is the type of droid I built.)

After you get all the necessary parts, proceed to a build station and use the blueprints to assemble your droid correctly. They have an automatic screwdriver for you to use to attach the legs to the body. Once completed, you'll be given a remote control to activate it, watch it come to life, then start using it!

If you wish you customize your droid further, there are many accessories you may purchase to assist you in that area. One such item you may procure is a "personality chip" to give your droid "personality". As of writing this, there are 6 to choose from, and they cost $12.99 each. You can also outfit your droids with:

  • Different colored accessory panels (the ones you have to choose from when building your droid are either red or blue. I opted to then buy a set of orange accessory panels as my droid was mostly black, and I was going for a Halloween-themed motif w/black & orange.)
  • Blaster attachments
  • Various tools
  • Jet attachments
  • Drink serving tray

Many of the attachments are "series specific", meaning you can only use them on the R-SERIES as there's no place to put them on the BB-SERIES.

Now to carry your droid around Batuu, they give you a sturdy cardboard carrying case, but if you're looking for something more stylish, for $39.99, you can purchase a nice backpack in which to transport them about Black Spire Outpost.

Unfortunately even though they are remote-controlled, you are not allowed to drive them around Galaxy's Edge, or in the Disney Parks themselves. But your droid can interact with other droids that are stationed about the land. You just have to be carrying them the whole time, and of course, have them turned on. What exactly that interaction consists of I do not know as I was not aware this was a viable feature until I actually started researching information for this article.

Among the other items you can purchase in the Droid Depot include patches, keychains, shirts, hats, pins, and this is where you'll find the exclusive 4-pack of 6" action figures which include R2-D2, C-3PO, BB-8, & DJ R3X.
