TBS6 Case Assortments Are.... For The Children?

Jedi Temple Archives has a source who knows one of the salespeople at TRU, (a fellow collector by the way), who met with Hasbro France’s sales representatives in September. (It sounds like a game of “Operator” already, doesn’t it? It has to be untrue, right?) In this session, there was a Q&A session. Our source was able to submit his own question that this TRU salesperson would be able to ask Hasbro. His question was about case assortments for The Black Series 6″ line. The answer made us feel sad. (more….)

Kylo Ren And Rey Forces Of Destiny In Stock At TRU

You can order the new Kylo Ren and Rey Forces of Destiny 2-pack at ToysRUs.com now. It also qualifies for free shipping. They also have the TRU Exclusive Force Link Starter Set with Praetorian Guard and First Order Executioner up for pre-order. I’m not sure if that $10 Off coupon will work for this in stores, so if you try it let us know!

   

UPDATE: For some reason, it’s no longer letting me add the FOD to my cart and only allowing for store pickup. When I posted it, I was able to check out so keep checking back to see if it gets fixed.

Toys R Us Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Retailer Toys R Us has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. This action will allow them to work with creditors to hopefully turnaround their current financial status. Toys R Us will operate in a “business as usual” fashion for the foreseeable future. The NY Times has the full story. (This is the “big announcement” we let you know was coming last night.)

Toys R Us Enters Death Spiral Before 2017 Holiday Season

Ugh. You saw our earlier report on Toys R Us on the front page recently, and how they were considering filing for bankruptcy, but creditors already see them in a death spiral as their debt load seems almost incurable from their viewpoint). According to some sources, Toys ‘R’ Us could file for bankruptcy as soon as next week, and they note that “nervous suppliers have scaled back shipments and tightened terms to the retailer ahead of the crucial holiday selling season, on worries they may not got repaid and their payables would be lumped alongside other unsecured pre-petition claims.” While it’s always sad to anyone lose their job, it also makes us wonder if this will impact the availability of their exclusives that were announced for Force Friday II. We wish them the best. Check out the new update at ZeroHedge.com.

Force Friday II Toys R Us Poster Features TIE Bombers

If you went out to Toys R Us’ Force Friday II event, you were given a poster which features multiple TIE Bombers in the scene. This has no relation to The Empire Strikes Back, so don’t even go there. Special thanks to The Bot for the image.

Toys R Us Force Friday II Blues?

It’s 1am here on the East Coast, and ToysRUs.com has none of the new product in that I can see. We just received a report from JTA reader Evan who found that his Local TRU had NONE of the new 6″ figures in after being first in line. Luckily, he booked it to Walmart where he scored it all (seen below), but has anyone else suffered the same fate at TRU?

TBS [SW40] Wave 1 Found At Toys R Us

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.

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….

Forces Of Destiny Starts Hitting Toys R Us Stores

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?

TBS6 Below MSRP Almost Everywhere Now - What's Going On?

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.)

My TRU May Not Have New TBS Waves, But..

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?
