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.
    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!

What’s cool about these experiences, like building the lightsaber, or building the droid is that, your only putting the pieces together, no wiring or anything. Yet it feels like your actually building a droid, a lightsaber, and that your in the world of Star Wars. Disney really did an amazing job at this

I think the experience, even though it's not a show, the fact that it's chaotic, and like an actual junk store where you're mashing your own parts together to get a droid, it's more authentic.

Built a BB unit at WDW Galaxy's Edge a week ago. What a piece of junk. If the unit hits a bump the head falls off and once the unit sits idle for a few minutes it won't work. Had to open it up nd tun it off then on to work. If I was still in the park I would return it for a refund.

I felt the same way. Compared to the saber experience, it was chaotic. Not a lot of help or guidance. The staff looked a bit on edge and trying to stay in character. We went with a first order BB unit. I think it does well for the 100 bucks. If you have a choice, go with the light saber experience. They have so many choices it's difficult to decide.

@Ordinary Adventures We were in FL just this last Wednesday. The crowds were not bad, no lines in the droid depot, but still hectic. It may be in the explanation of the process. Even though its kind of spelled out for you with the diagrams, it would help with someone standing by to walk you through. Regardless, anything Disney is so above and beyond, I cant really complain. I was blown away.

💯 although I will say that now that the land has been open for some time the droid experience seems a lot less hectic and on a less busy day it seems like you’ll get a more hands on experience.

Ok guys I really enjoy your channel and content however, I disagree with what you said about the experience of building a droid vs the light saber. My son and I was recently there and I thought the experience was spot on. For example anytime a light saber is created it is a solemn private moment between padawan or apprentice and master. On the other hand as far as the movie goes, any scenes where a droid is being assembled is always a chaotic junkyard type of scene! EVEN ON YHE IMPERIAL SHIP. So to there defense, I thought they had it spot on! Great video!!!

Well glad you had a great experience. I will say this, we built the droid during the preview reservations and the lines and people were crazy. Now you can go build a droid and get a much better hands on experience so I think it’s probably much different today.
