While on a Toy Run yesterday we took some pictures of a local Toys'R'Us store in the Seattle, WA area. There was a ton of old stock still sitting on the shelves, including the Force Awakens Millennium Falcon, Tie Fighters from The Force Awakens and TFA basic assortment figures. There were still lots of Black Series 6" Constable Zuvios, Finns, Guavian Enforcers, Jyn Ersos and Cassian Endors (Eadu) figures, but at least they were 40% off. The 40th Anniversary figures were nowhere to be found with the exception of the Legacy Vader pack. The AT-ACT vehicle from the Rogue One toy line was marked as "clearance", but still cost $249.99.
What do the shelves look like in your area?
