Toys”R”Us has got Comic Con covered
Toys”R”Us is curating a special lineup of toys — and a new shop — in anticipation of San Diego Comic-Con that is designed to appeal to the toy collector community.
"Just as pop culture fans have been eagerly awaiting the 2015 Comic Convention all year long, we have been working with our manufacturing partners to bring a lineup of exclusive products to this year's show that our conventioneers will clamor for," said Richard Barry, Executive Vice President, Global Chief Merchandising Officer, Toys"R"Us, Inc. "We are thrilled to share these collectibles, along with our new, easy-to-navigate, dedicated online and in-store shop, 'Collector Vector,' with our avid collector community who has long looked to Toys"R"Us as the destination for these unique items."
The announced exclusives include:
BATMAN™ Classic TV Series Batgirl from Mattel
Brave and beautiful in 6-inch scale, and rendered in actress Yvonne Craig’s likeness, this classic TV series Batgirl features dynamic, iconic colors, a two-sided soft goods cape and 16 points of articulation for ultimate playtime action and posing. Collectors can display her on the included base and choose between one of two retro cityscape backdrops.
BATMAN™ vs Harley Quinn from Schleich
With this two-pack, supervillain Harley Quinn leads her own battle against the formidable and legendary BATMAN™. Complete with her signature black and red harlequin costume, this figure’s false smile hides a sneaky criminal, so BATMAN will need all of his high-flying skills to fight her.
G.I. JOE DESERT DUEL from Hasbro
It’s a fast-firing, high-rolling G.I. JOE-Cobra battle with this DESERT DUEL pack. Complete with a Cobra Basilisk tank and an Elite Horseman figure to drive it, fans can load missiles in the elevating, rotating launcher, making the set’s Cobra Air Trooper figure a rolling nightmare for the G.I. JOE commandos. But with the included Philip “Chuckles” Provost figure, kids and collectors can fold out the camouflage canopy on the F.O.E. Striker 4-wheeler and take aim at enemies with the poseable cannon. And, if the pack’s Night Fox figure has to pursue enemies on foot, the cannon comes off the vehicle.
Mortal Kombat X Glow-in-the Dark Raiden from Mezco Toyz
As befits Raiden, the Elder God of Thunder, this 6-inch scale figure features 23 points of articulation, many with ball joints, allowing collectors to recreate all the moves and poses that have made Raiden part of Mortal Kombat gaming legend. Raiden comes complete in a displayable collector-friendly blister card, as well as with alternate lightning hands and a lightening ball. To ensure a game-accurate likeness, each figure is sculpted using the digital files from the game developers themselves.
Star Wars The Black Series Jabba’s Rancor Pit from Hasbro
Star Wars fans can re-create one of the biggest battles and missions in the Star Wars Saga with this set from The Black Series. Jabba’s Rancor Pit includes highly articulated 6-inch figures, all of which are featured in the epic Return of the Jedi scene where Jabba the Hut throws a Gamorrean Guard and Luke Skywalker into the Rancor Pit, while Princess Leia looks on in horror. This item will become available at Toys“R”Us stores later this year.
TRANSFORMERS Masterpiece Bluestreak from Hasbro
What’s the most unstoppable thing on the battlefield? The mouth of Bluestreak. He never stops talking and he’s not a fan of silence. He likes the Decepticons even less. If words were fireblasts, Bluestreak would have wiped out the Decepticons long ago. This highly detailed figure easily converts from robot mode to sports car mode for added play, and comes with a blaster that jumps out whenever he sets his sights on Decepticons. This item will become available at Toys“R”Us stores later this year.
POWER RANGERS Limited Black Edition Legacy Megazord from Bandai
After 20 years of POWER RANGERS action and excitement, fans can return to the beginning with this original MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS Megazord. This limited edition Legacy Megazord with premium diecast parts will be available to conventioneers and online shoppers in black and gold.This item will become available at Toys“R”Us stores later this year.
In conjunction with Comic Convention, Toys"R"Us has also introduced a new shop titled, "Collector Vector," dedicated to collectible action figures, playsets and more for the mature collector community, available now in its stores nationwide and Toysrus.com. This specially designated destination features nearly 100 highly sought-after collectibles from industry leading manufacturers.
