HasbroToyShop Has Its Revenge on Collectors

As you are probably painfully aware by now, HasbroToyShop this morning placed the SDCC exclusives up for sale on their site, including the Revenge of the Jedi Death Star Figure Pack. Needless to say, the site couldn’t handle the rush of traffic to order this and the other exclusives, forcing many to miss out on this highly sought after piece. Couple this latest snafu with the frustration collectors are having finding new product in general and you have the perfect storm for breaking the Tauntaun’s back. Collectors in forums and Facebook and Twitter are voicing their disgust. Let’s hope that Hasbro and HasbroToyShop gets the message (1-800-224-4438).

TRU Exclusive Stealth Ops Clone Trooper Available for Pre-Order

Toys”R”Us has updated their site recently placing their new exclusive Clone Wars Stealth Operations Clone Trooper (aka Commander Blackout*) up for pre-order. You can get yours (limit 2) at the link or wait until it hits retail as he’ll surely be “FREE” with a qualifying purchase like their previous exclusives.

Thanks to Dan from swCollector for the tip!

*Note: this figure isn’t called out specifically as “Commander Blackout” anywhere on the packaging front or back.
