Bio: These figures do not have specific packaging or configurations. As such, we will be treating each dome as a unique "figure" as that part is the most plentiful. There were 25 domes in the first 2012 series and 11 domes in the 2015 batch. While Hasbro had said they didn't design the first batch, they included Hasbro copyrights. This batch does not - markings read "© DISNEY" and "© LFL" as well as "China" on each leg.

Based on the same basic build-a-droid chassis we started getting back in 2008, this purple droid more or less matches nicely. The dome has some purple paint that matches the purple body, but a few elements are considerably darker. It stands out, and at first glance it almost looks like an error. Most of the elements are painted nicely, but there are a few parts that seem underdecorated on the dome - at least the body has some great silver outlining.
Collector's Notes: I got this from my pal Shannon who was cool enough to get me a set from Disneyland.
