Given that the minifig comes with a base with a Technic pin which could be used to connect other droids, it is our summation that matching droids from the Droid Factory set are likely. Note that the dome element seems to be segmented which has led some to conclude that the top of the minifig can be rotated.
Snaps to Graham at Brick Fanatics for the share.
