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.
As we speculated a couple weeks ago, there is a version of the BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset that includes the Force Link bracelet. We’ve seen the version without the bracelet leaked via Amazon.es but now you can see the second version in alternate packaging has leaked out and is on-shelf at Target via an Instagram post from ToyThugShow (swipe left on the Instagram image to see it.)
Thanks to @Jord3217 on Twitter for the heads-up.

Twitter follower @socalrider99 tags us in this tweet showing Hot Toys new Anakin Skywalker and Endor Luke Skywalker sixth scale figures.
Managed to pick up the Princess Leia and Wicket Endor Adventure set over my lunch break at my local Target (Medina, MN). They had these in stockroom as well as the Rey Extendable Staff (which I passed on). As a reminder, retail for the Endor Adventure set is $34.99 with DPCI 087-06-9292. I’ll get my girls to give their thoughts on this set later tonight.
(Sorry if this purchase triggers those (you know who you are) that can’t stand Hasbro marketing to kids or to parents looking to share their love of Star Wars with their progeny.)
