If you’d like a preview of some of the products available on Force Friday II, look no farther that the Toys”R”Us mobile website. Using my iPhone and the Google Chrome app, a simple search for “the last Jedi” brings up about 40 different products from action figures to role play items from Hasbro, Funko and LEGO. Why reporting monumental failure of this magnitude is frowned up is unbelievable. If anything, it points out systemic problems in procedures and practices of manufactures and retailers. It is not our fault leaks like this happen and we will continue to report them.
Thanks to @Jord3217 on Twitter for the report.
UPDATE: It looks like the power that be have addressed the problem with Toys”R”Us’ site.
Oops. Looks like Toys”R”Us has broken the street date for products from The Last Jedi according to this post over at Jedi Temple Archives. Head on over to check out the 18″ Kylo Ren, Praetorian Guard and revised First Order Stormtrooper from Jakks Pacific as well as Kylo Ren’s* Deluxe Electronic Bladebuilders Lightsaber from Hasbro.
*Shelf tag confirms “Victor” as Kylo Ren’s product code name.

A few well timed tweets from us this afternoon resulted in Twitter follower @1JosephBOrtiz scoring wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary Collection of 6″ figures from his local TRU in Arizona.

Reports are coming in that some retailers, such as Target are receiving solid cases of the 6″ 40th Anniversary Princess Leia figure, such as the image above provided by forum member dubsack. This also appears to be happening at some Toys”R”us stores.
Now, we’re not opposed to this great figure of our favorite princess being in good supply, but solid cases of anything in this scale at mass retail seems like it could cause problems, unless we’re talking Stormtroopers or Royal Guards (even that would be risky).
Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the forums!
Twitter follower Manu N. reports finding wave 2 at a Toys”R”Us in Milford, Connecticut. Nice find!!!
