Whenever there is a massive sweep of bugs being fixed and things synced, there's usually a couple minor things that get kaplooyed (lost, bugged, etc). I'm presuming the rules page for the CP droids was simply caught up in that crossfire and will be back very soon.
Unless you see a SimNews about CP droids being removed officially, it's a safe bet this is just a glitch and it'll be fixed.
"I like Justin Beiber Mash-Up's the best" is what I keep telling myself.
Unlikely. CP stuff generally lasts a year, sometimes more in the past. Since the droids were introduced late last year, I would guess there are still several months at least before they are swapped out.
Drex hit it on the head - syncs tend to screw up some other things as well that will promptly be fixed.
I think that it was a bit annoying at first but I'm sure there working on it, with combat coming out sometime this year, they're probably swamped. And to answer a question about the rarity and such, CP units are designed to come out to the Game new, but the actually droids will soon become rare because they're actually older than that of current models, or at least the ones i'm seeing now are anyways:D
Ah was under the standing that all CP items (ships/droids/vehicles, but not counting customs like NPCs or drinks/clothing/etc) were old entities that were in 'private collections' or similar and not being produced anymore, that's why once they are removed from CP they become rare
