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!
Reports are coming in (and being posted on various Facebook collector groups) that Wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary Collection is starting to hit Toys”R”Us across the US. Time to start popping into your local store if you’ve taken it out of your regular toy runs.
