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.
It’s been a while since we’ve reported one of these but with all of the reports of the Walmart Exclusive 6″ Black Series Mimban Stormtroopers FINALLY hitting stores en masse, I’ve noticed a variant. The version from Canada (Toys”R”US) looks to have silver accents painted on it while the Walmart versions in the U.S. feature a plain, unpainted blaster.
If you haven’t heard yet, there’s news that the brand may be reviving itself in the United States.
Could this really be happening? Share your thoughts and what this could mean for our beloved hobby, and the toy industry in general!
Our friends at Rebelscum (via Instagram) post this latest product leak from TRU in Canada. Apparently there is a Force slink two pack featuring C-3PO and R2-D2.
We received a report that Walmart has purchased much of the remaining stock from Toys”R”Us here in the U.S. and is planning on having a special reset to offer items in stores. No word if this includes exclusive items like the 6″ Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton), Zuckuss and the like, but it is not out of the realm of possibility. Hopefully this will all be cleared up at SDCC.
Thanks to Jason M. for the intel.
Welp, another product has leaked out to retail before the official announcement. This time it’s the long-rumored Black Series Centerpiece Rey (Starkiller Base) set. This will also be available as part of the SDCC Exclusive Starkiller Base set that was announced two weeks ago. This was found, again, at Toys”R”Us in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Thanks to Ben R. for the image.
Canada residents can now order the Toys”R”Us exclusive 6″ Black Series Stormtrooper with Blast Accessories.
Thanks to Toyshiz for the heads-up!
Also hitting Toys”R”Us in Hong Kong is this Force Link 2.0 Multipack featuring characters from The Last Jedi which (we also exclusively revealed back in February). This set includes Holographic Maz Kanata, plus Rey (Island Journey), Kylo Ren, a First Order Snowtrooper and Poe. No word yet on US distribution. Thanks to Kylo Collector for the tag on Instagram.
Instagram follower Kylo Collector tags us with photo evidence of the recently revealed Deluxe 6″ Black Series Stormtrooper already hitting Toys”R”Us in Hong Kong! No word yet on US distribution. So much for it being fake.
