Get a Sneak Peak of the Vendors and Merchandise Coming to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
It’s been a big day for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge news. Not only have we revealed more details about how this exciting land will look, the rides you’ll find there and the intergalactic cuisine you’ll be able to tuck into but Disney has also revealed a few exciting details regarding the awesome vendors and merchandise you’ll find in Batuu.
The Droid Depot
This awesome vendor will be located in the market. Here patrons can pick parts and pieces off a conveyor belt, then build your own customizable astromech droids ((R-series or BB-series). These are no ordinary droids. Rather they are capable of interacting with elements in the land and responding to guests’ behaviors. Additional programming chips and accessories can be added to the droids to further customize their abilities.
The Droid Depot will also offer guests pre-built droids, including a C-3PO who has quite a bit to say (especially if you “accidentally” take off his head and put it on backwards!) and a Rex who will happily play whatever music you have on your smartphone through an intergalactic Bluetooth connection. The shop also offers droid-inspired products and much more—and intergalactic tourists needn’t fret, as all merchandise will be labeled in dollars.
At Savi’s Workshop, guests are given the opportunity to build their own exclusive lightsaber. At the heart of every saber is a kyber crystal, and during a guided tour, each guest will have four crystal options to choose from: Peace Justice (modeled after Jedi from the Republic era); Power Control (a nod to the Sith); Elemental Nature (harnessing air, earth, fire, and water); and Defense (shrouded in mystery).
Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities
At this mysterious Den of Antiquities, visitors will find a selection of mysterious and rare items for sale representing different eras of the Star Wars galaxy, including ancient Jedi and Sith artifacts, holocrons, lightsabers, and more. Take time to explore the shop’s nooks and crannies and you’ll find Dok at his desk, checking his inventory, taking calls, and barking orders at his assistants.
Resistance Supply is a “makeshift” resource location at the Resistance’s hidden command post. Here you’ll find badges, hats, pins, and other accessories to help you feel like part of the cause.
First Order Cargo
First Order Cargo is a temporary storage dock located near the market. You’ll recognize by the never-before-seen First Order TIE echelon. Here, interstellar tourists have a chance to pledge their loyalty to the First Order by purchasing caps, gear, model ships, pins, and more.
Brad Schoenberg, Director of Merchandise, Strategy & New Parks Experience Development at Walt Disney World Resort had this to say of First Order Cargo, “This is the first place they touched down. They are trying to win the hearts and minds of locals with propaganda and merch.”
Schoenfield also goes on to point out that you won’t find any “evergreen” Star Wars products at the merchants listed above: “We’re giving today’s consumers an experience only we can deliver.” Items reflect the stories of yore, as they’ve been told throughout Black Spire Outpost. With a vast array of innovative goods, he adds, “[There are] many levels of discovery.”
