We Built a DROID in Galaxy's Edge, But Was It Worth It?

    Dauer: 22:53

    Last week we went to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland to build a droid in Droid Depot. We decided to build an R2 unit instead of the BB-unit because the R2 units seem to control better and offer more accessories. Watch us build a droid and see the whole process.
    Also: Watch Kitra build a BB-unit droid here: de-film.com/v-video-FzcMm9huiNA.html

    We build a droid in Galaxy's Edge, but was it worth the $100? How does the experience compare to Savi's Build-your-own-lightsaber experience next door in Black Spire Outpost? What droid depot accessories should you buy and avoid? Are the droid personality chips cool? What did our dogs Pixel and Gizmo think of our new droid? Find out the answer to all of these questions in the video.
    For $99.99 plus tax, you get entrance into the droid factory in Droid Depot, and choose if you want to build an R-series (aka R2-D2 style) of BB-series (aka BB-8 style) droid. We decided the R-series, and there was more options, accessories, and the BB-series seems to drive unstable due to the balancing head gyro tech. Watch us build a droid and see the whole process in the video above.
    Was it worth the $100? I think so. For $100 the remote control droid is pretty cool, and you get a truly customized addition to your family.
    How does the experience compare to Savi's Build-your-own-lightsaber experience next door in Black Spire Outpost? Sadly the experience is not comparable. At Savi's it's a show, it's emotional, you feel like the gathers are helping and assisting you. At Droid Depot, you feel like a customer who is taking too long, and it's hard to get assistance. The coolest parts are using the electronic screwdriver to put the droid together and the activation sequence, but it's nothing amazing. But you have to ask yourself, who is this for? If this is for a young child, they might enjoy the droid more than the saber, and the cost is half the price.
    What droid depot accessories should I buy? Here is where it can get costly. There are a ton of accessories that you can add to your droid, including cosmetic, tools, weapons, decals, different colored panels, personality chips, and more. So don't think you can get out of there just spending $99. I would probably recommend getting a personality chip at very least. This makes your droid sound different than R2-D2. I wish they still had the sound preview devices to let customers know what they were buying. From there I might recommend one of the powered accessories, like the boosters or blasters, because the remote has functionality with them.
    What droid depot accessories should I avoid? I am not happy with the R-series serving tray set (basically R2-D2's serving set-up from Jabba's place in Return of the Jedi). It looks nice but is not practical. The R-Series toolset we purchased is a bit more practical but doesn't do anything. I thought the decals would allow for a more customizable looking droid, but the result looks very cheap, so I would probably recommend against those as well.
    See the answers to all of these questions in the video, alongside our building process. Moreover, please let us know in the comments if you think it's worth it for a custom droid, and if you did the experience, share your thoughts!

I’m so indecisive about what I want I definitely want an r unit droid and I want red but I can’t decide between if I want an r2,r6 or a r4 and paint it red because I kinda want a retro Coca Cola look but they don’t have an r4 in red or at least not of my knowledge and I don’t want to be to simple with a r2 but also don’t like the three eyes that much for the r6 so idk but it’s definitely between the r2 and repaint r4 because tbh I don’t think that the r3 heads are that sturdy and that’s just previous experience with clear plastic but also I want something new but I’m not the best painter

There is a Lord of the Rings type interactive adventure park in Utah called Evermore. ( I have been watching videos on it. looks fun.) Do you think that Galaxy's Edge should have been it's own park so that the interactive portion would have been more feasible due to a separate entrance fee? The queue app games are fun but the Evermore level type interaction might have been good.

How much is the droid, personality chip and backpack with tax? Or is the tax already included in the prices? *(Current price please)* If the tax is separate, what is the amount of tax for each of the items? I already know the droid itself has tax but not the amount. I haven't been to Galaxy's Edge *YET* that's why I'm not sure about the rest of the items if they have tax or not and what the amount of tax is

I think your video and review mirrors my experience almost exactly. The custom saber build was literally "an experience." The cast members did a great job of acting, they were incredibly helpful with questions and instructions. The entire process was fun and very Disney-like. The droid build on the other hand, was a free for all. Even though an appointment was required at the time (I think they are now taking walk-ins), the cast members were either absent, distracted, or in such a hurry that they may have not even been there. It lead to increased build times (and therefore increased wait times) and people just helping each other out. It's already a slow process when you're inundated with choices/colors/parts and then to have to figure all the steps on your own was overwhelming for some. During my experience, the CMs didn't even point out the screwdrivers and so people were incredibly confused about how to get the arms to stay put. Thankfully, I'd watched a YouTube video in advance and knew what to expect. Lastly, a lot of the parts were somewhat ill-fitting, especially the two chest pieces. It took me a while to find a matching set that didn't have one or both popping outward instead of resting flat. The droid itself is totally worth $99 to me. I would skip on the personality chip; the original sounds are more to my liking than any of the chips, but that's a totally subjective thing. They are fun and exactly the kind of little robot I always wanted when I was a kid.

$25K for a life size R2???? Are they out of their minds???? With a 3D printer, some Arduino, and a few other basic electronics, you can build your own for far much less than that.

Had reservations to build a droid but cancelled because it just looked so cheap. Did not believe it was worth $100. I found an R2D2 (Hasbro) at a Ross last year which is more durable and is controlled by phone on the app. I found it at Ross for $8.99 so I did not feel the need to spend so much for something that felt so cheap. The light saber experience was totally worth it. They also have photographers stationed nearby the park to take the most amazing photos. Get the Max Pass so you can download pictures for free!

So a piece of trivia. You actually didn't go basic. You technically build an R3 unit not an R2. The R3 has a clear dome where the R2 has an opaque done. Reason for this was for the mechanics to see, if there was a fault, what the fault was without removing the dome
