For those that missed out on the first release of the Toys”R”Us Exclusive 6″ Black Series Commander Gree from 2017, word is (via the 6″ Black Series Collectors group on Facebook) that he may be available sometime again in the near future as distributors have started receiving solicitations and opening preorders again.
Canada residents can now order the Toys”R”Us exclusive 6″ Black Series Stormtrooper with Blast Accessories.
Thanks to Toyshiz for the heads-up!
A couple new NERF Glowstrike blasters from Solo: A Star Wars Story have started to hit retail – at Toys R Us of all places. The Chewbacca blaster and Qi’ra blasters were found in California. Click on through for larger images.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Toys”R”Us told employees that it most likely will be closing all of its stores in the U.S..
Our friends at Fantha Tracks have reported via Facebook that there have been sightings of the new wave of Force Link collection Emperor Palpatine and First Order Flametrooper (orange wave 3) at ToysRUs at Reading Gateway in the UK.
PROS: The upgraded deco and soft goods for Rey make this far superior (in my opinion) to the standard Black Series figure release. The inclusion of diecast weapons are a nice touch as they feel weighty in the hand and add a bit more authenticity to the figure. The included Crait base components are nicely sculpted and painted. It will be interesting to see how this environment and Rey interact in the film.
CONS: I, and I think many, feel that issuing superior versions of the same character in such close proximity to the initial figure release date reinforces the practice of collectors waiting out inital product launches. Despite the improvements to the figure and the inclusion of the environmental base, the price of this exclusive at 75% markup over the basic Black Series figure seems excessive.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
