    If the person I am building the astromech is at home, can I FaceTime them in so they can pick their components?

    Bright Suns Taleena,

    Welcome to planDisney! With so many First Order officers wandering around Black Spire Outpost, it is a good thing your friend is sending you to create a droid at Droid Depot on their behalf. It will help them avoid detection by stormtroopers. Since there are a number of customization components to creating a droid, I understand your desire to get your friend’s seal of approval.

    I reached out to a human-droid relations specialist in Batuu, and they said that there is no specific policy forbidding using your datapad for FaceTime calls in Black Spire Outpost’s industrial depot. That said, Taleena, I’ve spent a lot of time in the depot, and it can get very loud (and sometimes the WiFi can be spotty). In my experience, it is not the best environment for FaceTime. Since selecting a droid takes time and attention, FaceTime might make your friend feel too rushed. What I recommend is going to Droid Depot before your reservation. Ask the shop’s helpers if you can take a few photos of the options to send to your friend. Then, they can take a look and make their choices before your scheduled reservation. I’ve done this for my mother at Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers. It made the experience a lot smoother for both myself and my mom.

    I hope this was helpful, Taleena! Before I let you go, don’t forget to stop by Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo while you wait for your friend to send you the specs for their droid. The Outpost Puff is fantastic! The rich chocolate and the spiced pineapple are a perfect pairing.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
