Now Playing: Star Wars: Episode 9 "The Rise Of Skywalker" Teaser Trailer Breakdown

Disneyland's new Star Wars-themed park, Galaxy’s Edge, opened its doors to the public today. Fans who plan to visit the planet of Batuu are also likely planning to part ways with a lot of their money, and Disney is certainly accommodating those desires. Galaxy’s Edge is loaded with new and exclusive merchandise that you won’t be able to find anywhere else (much of which you can take a peek at in our image gallery from visiting the park), ranging in price from a few dollars to a few hundred--and beyond, as we're about to explain.

For those with plenty of cash to burn, there are some very high-end items for you to browse, but one in particular caught our eye. During a media preview event, GameSpot found the most expensive piece of merchandise for sale in the new land. For the low, low price of only $25,000, you can have your own custom R-series droid.

Whether you want a perfect replica of R2-D2 or some splashes of color, the design of the droid is up to you, if you’re willing to pay enough. You can customize the droid's paint job and parts--to an extent that wasn't clear yet during our sneak peek. You can even choose whether your droid will appear scuffed up and used, or shiny like it just arrived from the factory. The droid is functional, including sounds and lights, and controllable via remote. If you decide to pony up, it will be about 90 days from the time of order to your custom droid arriving at your front door, according to Disney.

Of course, there are also options for those that don’t want to spend quite that much.

You can also build your own smaller droids for $100, or purchase one that’s been pre-built, with the price depending on the droid in question. Speaking to GameSpot, Disneyland Resort Merchandise Strategy Manager Summer Bloomfield said that prices on droids start at $10.

Honestly, though, everyone should get the $25,000 option and then R2 units can rule the galaxy. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland on May 31, with Walt Disney World’s arriving on August 29. The newest entry in the movie series, Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, arrives this December and wraps up the Skywalker saga that has spanned the core nine movies.
