Disney's Build Your Own Droid Factory R2-D2

I had Chris Wyman build me the R2-D2 with Mickey Mouse ears shown above. Here is a brief run down of Disney Droid Factory from his recent visit.
"You can build a single droid for $11.95 or two for $18.95. A full droid consists of 1 body, 1 right leg, 1 left leg, 1 mi"ddle leg, 1 dome & 1 hat. There are a total of 71 different pieces in the factory, but some of these had already sold out after having been available for the last few days. I was told that more were on the way. Additionally, coming in August, collectors will also be able to find other pieces such as the Indiana Jones fedora, a pirate hat and the classic Yoda hat with the ears."
So from my understanding, if I want R2-D2 with each available hat or accessory I need to buy the entire droid. Luckily I don't have an Astromech fetish, just R2-D2. Otherwise I'd be spending a ton just to build some little robots. A headache in my opinion for collectors, but overall this is a very cool experience for the kids visiting.
