Disney Star Wars Elite Series C-3PO and R2-D2

We knew that sculpts existed for C-3PO and R2-D2 since the very first announcement of Disney's diecast Elite series, with the droids being offerered in the original Disney Expo mega pack back in 2015 under an original trilogy / prequel trilogy banner.

As of today, Star Wars Day 2016, the droids have now shown up at a US Disney store single packed.

It seems that Disney have finally got round to offering the droids singularly, getting round the promised exclusivity by making the single releases Force Awakens themed, particularly in that C-3PO has his red arm.

The image is not our own, but it is circulating on social media. There is nothing listed as yet on the US Disneystore and there is no indication of these two figures translating to the UK or other territories - although we would hope that Disney won't be that unfair, and they have granted Proto Boba Fett a worldwide release.

US fans who have managed to buy these are talking around a release date of the 16th May? Not sure how that fits in - surely a May the 4th release makes more sense.

We will update this post with more information and images as they come in.
