I found a bunch of Toys R Us exclusive TIE fighters at my local Toys R Us in Schaumburg IL.
Nice find, sir!
Jedi Temple Archives has posted a report that the Toys”R”Us Exclusive “Desert/Jakku Deco” Special Forces TIE Fighter with pilot has been found in the US. Head on over for their report and use UPC 630509368969 to check for availability at your store(s).
Last week we posted about Hasbro’s “value” line of 6″ figures which are essentially a middle ground between the traditional 3.75″ 5 POA action figures and the 12″ Hero Series line. Toys”R”Us Hong Kong has a link for all of these figures revealing others in the assortment including Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, First Order Stormtrooper and First Order Snowtrooper.
We are one week past Force Friday, but the aisles look like the week before. The desired product is virtually wiped out with only drips and drabs of stock replenishment taking place. To add further insult to injury, Kmart set many collectors up for failure in trying to obtain their exclusive 6″ Kylo Ren by launching a very early Sunday morning preorder. Is there hope for the modern day collector in this environment? We also discuss some of the latest product reveals from figures and vehicles to more exclusives. All this and much more on episode #75 of The Realm Recap!
Also, if you prefer an audio-only version, a downloadable MP3 is available as well.
Rebelscum has posted confirmation of the rumored Desert Damage First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter with First Order Special Forces Elite TIE Fighter Pilot (let’s throw a few more designations in there, shall we?). This exclusive 3.75″ scale vehicle and pilot feature unique deco and packaging. Look for it only at Toys”R”Us and ToysRUs.com
Toys”R”Us is now taking preorders for the exclusive 6″ Black Series Snowtrooper Officer from The Force Awakens.
The latest generation of cold weather assault Stormtroopers, Snowtroopers wear advanced insulated armor and helmets that reduce the glare of icy terrain. This 6-inch-scale First Order Snowtrooper Officer figure is carefully detailed to look just like the villainous soldier from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Sideshow Freaks forums has posted the first look at Hot Toys 1:6 Scale First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader figure. This figure is set to be a Hong Kong Toys”R”Us exclusive but it should be available through Sideshow Collectibles as well.
JediInsider has posted a rumor of another potential exclusive item heading to Toys”R”Us for Force Friday. They claim the discovery of a 6″ Black Series Special Forces Desert TIE Fighter with Pilot – a deco variant of the 6″ scale TIE Fighter revealed at SDCC last month.
ToysRUs.com is now taking preorders for Spin Master’s Legendary Yoda Interactive Figure.
Standing an impressive 16 inches tall, Yoda’s dynamic motorized body movement and full voice recognition make him the most realistic Star Wars toy ever. He speaks 115 phrases that will lead you to Jedi Wisdom and Lightsaber mastery.
Rebelscum has posted several images of the new MicroMachines Millennium Falcon playset (and cross-sell items) that has hit ToysRUs. Also on shelf were new Nerf items from The Force Awakens as well. Click on over to check them out.

An up close and personal review of the Toys”R”us/SDCC Jabba the Hutt has been posted for your viewing pleasure at Mightyjabba.com
Be forewarned, for those of us that had been excited by this new slug for our 3.75″ collections may not be so pleased considering some of the news in the review (including the paint apps)…
A report from Infinity Inquirer has posted that each of the four Star Wars Rebels characters (Kanan, Ezra, Sabine and Zeb) revealed recently will initially be exclusive to 4 separate retailers as part of a timed release.
They also go on to say that after a few weeks, they should all be available where Disney Infinity figures are sold.
Thanks to our friends at MakingStarWars.net for the heads-up.
