And a photo someone on Twitter showed of the carrying case is a backpack. Which you can partially unzip so the droid can look out!I suspect that whatever chip is in it interacts with signals implanted around the park. So if you're near the Millennium Falcon, it will know that. Likewise, it might know when you enter the cantina or get near ROTR. That's just my guess though.
My DIL is also working in merch! Not sure which store though, I haven’t asked her. She’s also part of opening day crew.Jedi robes?
DD#2 will be working in Savi's opening day. She's been practicing all the time; she did her part for a couple of groups of DL/Disney bigwigs over the last week, including the President and VP of DL. She said she met them both, stayed in character, completed her work with them, and didn't cry...so that's a win in her book!
Thank goodness grad nite is being held at DCA!Yes that is correct. That is why a few posts upthread people were annoyed.
1. No matter what, people are going to show up opening day, reservation or not. Disney knows this. So I'm assuming this is why parking is opening at 12am and line up for merch is 2 am. If people are going to add to crowds, you might as well entice them to come to the opposite end of where SWGE is located and make money off of them. Although this is sort of encouraging people to come now.
2. It sounds like there will be no merchandise at all in SWGE. Maybe it's to help those who have reservations leave on a timely manner? Yes, the reservation is only 4 hours, but you know people are going to stay as long as possible. If people have in the back of their minds that the only place to get merchandise for SWGE, they may want to head out to go get it.
This is going to be an interesting day. New land opening, big merchandise release, and a grad nite all in one lol
I hope this is ok to post here, but Dan-O has a pretty in-depth video on droid options.
Now I'm more excited lol
I wonder if those will be all the droid part options, or if there will be others....
I'm not sure if I want a BB Series or R Series yet.... leaning a bit towards BB. I don't want a BB8 or R2 clone though, I'd rather something of my own. hmmmmm the choices.... I like the Blue BB body, but not fond of the head.
I think this is going to be my SWGE mantra... DH already gets a worried look on his face when he sees me looking at the photos.Ugh! Great! Now I want one...
Of course, the one I really want is the most expensive one. Sigh.You mean DJ Rex? He's pre-built. (And apparently the most expensive one!)
And now I HAVE to have the backpack, too. Breathe, just breathe...And a photo someone on Twitter showed of the carrying case is a backpack. Which you can partially unzip so the droid can look out!
Agree that policy and enforcement are confusing, inconsistent, and usually a mess on Day 1 and a free for all by Day 3. We also deal with food allergies and bring in snacks and try to bring in water. It seems to help if the snacks are factory sealed, not already opened and in zipper bags. Trader Joe's sells small sealed bags of trail mix which have worked better than zipper bags of already opened trail mix.... What does that actually mean? In the past, people have brought in food with the rules stating that there is no outside food or beverages. People have brought in snacks. People have brought in beverages. People have also been stopped at security and made to dump these items. Enforcement is inconsistent at best.
We have food allergies and pack a small amount of items to get us through without flaunting it. An entire pizza - no. A safe protein bar, some fruit leather - yes. Just enough fuel to get us through until we can exit the space and eat a real meal...
I’m just planning on ballparking it at $175 plus tax and hoping that’s enough.So now that I’ve established I actually want to buy something from SWGE, I want to roughly plan a budget so I’m not in such shock. So the droid is $100 (it comes with the remote?), I’m assuming the backpack and personality chip thing are separate? Has anyone seen a price float around for these?
Hmm! Good idea. It comes with a box. But a backpack is so much cooler so I def want it lol. I’ll plan for $200 to be safe. I wonder if they’ll take gift cards? On days like this when I know I’ll be spending a lot I try and bring gift cards to keep me under control (doesn’t always work lol).I’m just planning on ballparking it at $175 plus tax and hoping that’s enough.
I just want the droid with a chip and the backpack. Well, I also want the serving tray and decals and everything else, but I’m settling for the droid with the chip and the backpack
I’d love to assume that for that sort of $$$ they would throw the backpack in for free as a carrying case, but giving away something they could make money on just doesn’t seem like it would happen lol
