Droid Factory
This is one of the few playsets that is unique to foreign release. It was made for the U.K. market by the Palitoy Company. The differences between it and the Kenner version are quite apparent. In fact, there are more differences than similarities. This playset was available with either a blue or yellow base which means double the investment for the completist collectors out there. Instead of a crane, this playset had a conveyor belt to use for part transport. I don't believe this set came with the vast number of pieces that the Kenner version did. Just as U.S. collectors seek out these playsets, U.K collectors seek out the Kenner playset to make their collections complete as well.
