Ugh. Toys R Us is cancelling orders for the Forces Of Destiny Platinum Edition Princess Leia Organa (and R2-D2) set. Let us know if you experience better luck. Interestingly, you can still pre-order it. My order has no expired or declined credit card issues either.

You saw our report that the Rapid Fire AT-ACT was going to be part of Toys R Us’ Black Friday sale this year, and it looks like we have some quantitative proof right now. Although full price, this store has allocated retail space for them prior to Black Friday. JTA reader Augustin found this at his local Toys R Us store this morning. It will be interesting to see how well these move at $99.99. Let us know if your stores are getting these also!
UPDATE: They’re IN STOCK right now at ToysRUs.com for $99.99!

JTA Canadian reader Steve B. lucked out and found this great set at his local Toys R Us in Vancouver. Get me one! Why doe the American version have to come so much later? Great find, Steve!
UPDATE: This product was incorrectly identified as life-size. It isn’t. Thank you.

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….)
If you live in Canada, you should probably check out ToysRUs.ca because they’ve placed all of their The Black Series 6″ figures on sale, including the pre-orders for new items. Special thanks to JTA reader Andrew D. for the alert!
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.
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.)
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.
Well, this can’t be good. Major retailer Toys R Us is possibly considering filing for bankruptcy protection. Business Insider has the full story.
A reader Riot Trooper Triggs alerts us to a new The Last Jedi product that we haven’t seen until now: a Poe Dameron 12-Inch Figure. Check it out at ToysRUs.com.
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.
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?
Toys R Us Australia’s Facebook page is live streaming Force Friday II products! Check it out!

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!
