- "Very funny…but 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
Vulcar was a baleful orange, sulfurous planet located in the Vulcar system, within the Juvex sector of the galaxy's Mid Rim. A hyperlane branching off the Senex-Juvex Loop connected it to the worlds of Tinallis and Tyluun. Home to the eponymous Sulphur Pits of Vulcar, its acrid atmosphere made employing humanoid workers to extract the world's oridium deposits barely cost-effective. Instead, 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. In the year 15 BBY, an Intergalactic Droid Agency shuttle traveled to the Sulphur Pits of Vulcar after delivering the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO to the planet Dodz.

Vulcar was first mentioned in Star Wars Droids 1: The Destroyer, the first issue of the Star Wars Legends Star Wars: Droids comic series published by Star Comics, an imprint of Marvel Comics, which was first published on April 1, 1986. The Essential Atlas, a reference book written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace and released on August 18, 2009, placed the planet in grid square L-18.
