"We're not going to touch a single one of your microcircuits. We just don't want you to be noticed in a crowd of Kessel droids."
―Luke Skywalker to C-3PO inside the Droid Repair Shop[1]

A Droid Repair Shop was located on Yavin 4, a moon of the planet Yavin. The shop had shelves containing used droid parts such as heads. It was used by the New Republic[1] in 5 ABY[2] to prepare the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 for a covert mission to the planet Kessel. The Jedi Luke Skywalker attempted to reassure C-3PO's apprehension towards the mission while examining droid parts in the shop.[1]

He selected an evil-looking droid head for C-3PO to use as a disguise, but the droid disliked its green color. Skywalker overuled the droid's objections and used an inter-office communications device to summon the Droid Modification Team, a group of 2-1B surgical droids, to complete C-3PO's disguise. The droids returned with R2-D2, whom they had already modified to resemble a Kessel mining droid, and took C-3PO away. The modifications took an hour to implement and, afterward, Skywalker and the droids left the Droid Repair Shop to attend a mission briefing.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Droid Repair Shop appeared in The Glove of Darth Vader, a 1992 junior novel written by Paul and Hollace Davids and illustrated by Karl Kesel.[1]
