"I suggest you leave this shuttle…unless you wish to be put into service in the Sulphur Pits of Vulcar!"
C-3PO, to R2-D2[src]

The Sulphur Pits of Vulcar were sulfur pits[1] located on the planet Vulcar that were mined for oridium deposits. The world's acrid atmosphere made employing humanoid workers barely cost-effective. As a result, Vulcar was primarily worked by droids of all types, including crab droids, reprogrammed to serve as miners until they froze up and rusted into scrap.[2] In the year 15 BBY, an Intergalactic Droid Agency shuttle traveled to the Sulphur Pits of Vulcar[3] after delivering the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO to the planet Dodz.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Vulcar was first mentioned in Star Wars Droids 1: The Destroyer, the first issue of the Star Wars: Droids comic series published by Star Comics, an imprint of Marvel Comics,[1] which was first published on April 1, 1986.[4]
