Same procedure as last year? Same procedure as every year! It seems street dates and embargos don’t mean very much when stores put product on shelves which we are not supposed to know about yet.
But TRU Canada put yet unannounced The Rise of Skywalker Galaxy of Adventures figures on shelves! And of course a Star Wars fan found them, took a picture of the figures in the box, and posted them, on Facebook of all things.
You will see Kylo Ren, Rey and the Jet Trooper, and the product packaging for the new Galaxy of Adventures line is revealed as well. The tubes are gone. And once more, these figures were found at Toys R Us Canada, in the wild, so the figures can no longer be considered top secret. Maybe they live in a different time zone up north and it’s already October 4th in Canada 😉 Thanks to JTA regular Matthew Cohen for the tip! So click through to see the three all new Galaxy of Adventures TROS figures, that you need to forget about again as soon as you see them!
A few general thoughts: I think the figures look fine, ok for what they are, kid friendly 5 inch super articulated action figures. Especially Kylo looks pretty detailed.
Also, Hasbro now uses the same packaging for English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese? That probably means it’s just one box for North and South America, Oceania and Europe.
What do you think of these figures? Is that something you might want to add to your collection? Or will you ignore them?
Oh… and before we end this article…
Please forget everything you have seen here and act all surprised come Triple Force Friday! Make Disney happy and make all the appropriate appreciative noises when IGN or IO9 or some other website gets the privilege to reveal things that were leaked long before on eBay, Facebook, Instagram or Reddit! 🙂
