- Fans looking for a fun way to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, have no shortage of options when it comes to merchandise, and today, shopDisney has added yet another must-have collectible.
- Inspired by the beloved droids from the Star Wars universe, Disney’s line of Droid Factory toys and display pieces just introduced a remote control version of the popular R2-W50 astromech.
- Similar to its miniature predecessor (which measured 2 ½” tall), this R2 unit offers the same royal blue, gold and iridescent design elements inspired by the WDW 50th color scheme.
- But unlike the early version, this one is much larger and can be remote controlled! Fans taking their Droid pal to Walt Disney World can also purchase additional “personality chips” and accessories (sold separately) at the resort to further customize this cool collectible.
- The sleek unit brings together the fun and adventure of Star Wars with the magic of Walt Disney World—something fans will treasure for a lifetime.
- The new R2-W50 Interactive Droid is available now on shopDisney and sells for $119.99. A link to the item can be found below.
