Star Wars 2013 Droid Factory Action Figures Legacy Collection Cancelled

This news may be a bit old by now, but i think some people are still not aware of it. Last year, we were shown new line of Star Wars 2013 Droid Factory Legacy Collection action figures. The action figures that were revealed were awesome and cool and was being anticipated eagerly by many Star Wars fan. The Star Wars 2013 Droid Factory action figures were supposed to hit the market by the spring of 2013, however, it sad to hear that those cool action figures are cancelled. Yes, they are cancelled and it’s official. Read below, the official statement by Hasbro.

Star Wars fans,

The Droid Factory line which was slated for spring 2013 has been cancelled. We were very excited about this line at its inception and wanted to give fans an early sneak peek when we unveiled it at Star Wars Celebration this past summer. Unfortunately since then, through the course of development, we realized that the price would have to be increased and we felt that the value we were adding with the droid parts was no longer substantiated.

As a result, we have decided to rework our 3.75” figure program to create a line that is on-par with the quality and pricing of the Vintage Collection. Many of the figures intended for the Droid Factory will become available in this new line in the fall. We’ll be able to share more news on this at Toy Fair.

We also recognize that there were many hard-to-find Vintage Collection figures in 2012. So, as we shared last December, we will re-release many of these figures this spring before the Vintage Collection goes on hiatus, making way for some of the most exciting new initiatives for SW collectors in years.

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm.


The Hasbro Star Wars Team

After reading the statement, there is one good news for sure. Hasbro will be re-releasing many of Star Wars Vintage Collection action figures in 2013. We can expect some more Vintage Collection action figures, before this line will be put on hiatus. So keep calm and wait for the Star Wars 2013 Vintage Collection action figures.
