ToysRUs has updated today (in more ways that one) and now has the 6″ Black Series Admiral Ackbar and First Order Officer set in stock.
Last week, Funko announced several of their exclusive POP! planned for NYCC. It now appears (based on a leaked database image on Instagram) that the POP Deluxe Boba Fett with Slave I will be a shared exclusive with Toys”R”Us.
ToysRUs.ca has updated today to reveal (and confirm) a couple of our rumors from the past week. First the exclusive mystery 2 pack of 6″ Black Series figures is confirmed to be Admiral Ackbar and a First Order Officer from The Last Jedi. Second, the rumored exclusive Force Link vehicle is Poe’s Boosted Resistance X-wing with Poe Dameron. There is a listing for a Force Link action figure pack that contains Rose (First Order Disguise), BB-8 and BB-9E and one for a Baze and Chirrut pack. No pic is available for those two, but they should surface soon enough.
It looks like the Toys”R”Us Exclusive 6″ Black Series Clone Commander Gree will be offered through Walmart in Mexico.
Thanks to @MrSteel_MEX on Twitter for the heads-up.
Toys”R”Us has issued a press release revealing details for thieir participation in midnight opening for Force Friday II. Products will also be available for purchase online at 12am EST. Attendees at the physical stores will receive a FREE shirt and poster*.
*While Supplies Last
Could there be another as yet to be leaked 6″ Black Series exclusive in the form of a two pack heading to Toys”R”Us for Force Friday. I don’t know. Maybe?
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.
Limit 1 per customer.
UPDATE: Sold Out

Realm Recap co-host Flyguy reports that the Toys”R”Us Exclusive Commander Gree has started arriving at store in Australia as well. Good on the rest of the world getting them in a timely manner as its usually everyone but the US that gets the shaft on exclusives.
