Toys R Us is coming back to New York City, but just for the holidays at 42nd Street and 6th Avenue in Times Square. Bloomberg has the full story! JTA has exclusively learned that the location should open on August 26th (just in time for Force Friday II) and be open through the New Year.
Today a friend of mine managed to find wave 1 of the 40th Anniversary at his local Toys R Us in Amherst, NY. He said the entire wave was there, but he only bought himself a Artoo-Detoo and a Han Solo. Are these still being found in their distribution centers or are these coming from somewhere else? Have you seen these pop up in your TRU recently? Thanks to JTA reader and friend Charlie for the info.
Toys R Us is selling a 4-piece Funko Pop Collectors Set that features Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Threepio, and Artoo-Detoo.
JTA Canadian reader Jamie D. sends us a remarkable store report. Do you remember the Amazon exclusive First Order Legion boxed set with seven figures? They have now shown up at Toys R Us in Canada for only $29.99 (original MSRP on Amazon was $47.99). As you know, these nearly go for $100 on Amazon today, so this is quite a surprising store find. Let us know if you see these in your local stores. I wonder why Amazon didn’t sell through their stock because once they sold out they never replenished and collectors wanted these. And I also wonder if American collectors will see this at their TRU stores. Weird. On a related note, I wonder if this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to unsold TFA toys….
Toysrus.com is having a 3-day clearance event. Best part is you can get an EXTRA 20% off by using promo code CLEARANCE20. Take a peek at all the Star Wars items they have on clearance and maybe save a few bucks.
The Forces of Destiny dolls have begun showing up at Toys R Us stores so it might be time to start looking if you’re after them. This photo comes from JTA reader Russ who found these at his local TRU in Wayne, NJ. Have you had any like finding these in your area? Let us know! Russ also shared an Amazon link to the elusive Jyn Erso Forces of Destiny doll. She’s been kept under tight wrap for whatever reason, but I think she looks great. How about you?
This will likely be old news for many, but we were pleasantly surprised when we randomly stopped by the Disney Infinity figure aisle at our local Toys R Us and discovered the figures were BUY ONE (1) GET FOUR (4) FREE. You read that right. We just couldn’t pass on the deal!
Toys R Us seems to have a 40% sale going on in select stores making The Black Series 6″ figures $11.99. You may be able to find some gems depending on your TRU location and who doesn’t need more Hovertank Pilots? JTA reader Jason sends in this image from his local TRU in OH. Does your TRU have this sale going on as well? Let us know!

Hey Canadian collectors! The Black Series [Phase III] First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter is on sale at ToysRUs.ca for $76.98. Special thanks to JTA reader Jean C. for the news!.
No new stock in months, which is nearly approaching years now. The same old stock continues to rot on shelves. Most retailers (if not all now) have TBS6 figures WELL BELOW the MSRP of $19.99/$21.99. What is truly going on anymore? Now another retailer desperately tries to move old stock. Have all of you seen the new sale at Toys R Us for their remaining stock of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures? The sale runs through July 1st (which is quite a long time out) and the figures have been marked down to $11.99 each. There has to be more going on here across all current brick and mortar retailer than meets the eye. Is there just not a big enough audience for this line or is Hasbro making too many of them? (The solution is the same answer.)
At least they are carrying these super awesome 40th Anniversary plastic cups that are useful for drinking a huge cup of “Why haven’t you moved out those Hovertank Pilots” tea. My local TRU in NJ has only received the Legacy pack, die-cast (once), and these awesome cups. One can only hope they get this fixed before “Force Friday” later this year. What does your TRU store look like lately?
