Wayne, NJ – June 25, 2015 – Building on its tradition of offering an unbeatable assortment of toys for collectors of all ages, Toys“R”Us today revealed its lineup of exclusive figures and playthings that will be available at the highly anticipated Comic Convention in San Diego next month.

In conjunction with Comic Convention, Toys“R”Us has 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, including Bandai, Diamond Select™, Mezco Toyz, McFarlane Toys and NECA, among others, as well as items based on hit properties, such as BATMAN™, Godzilla, Sons of Anarchy, Predator, The Walking Dead and more. The company’s new digital “Collector Vector” hub, available online at Toysrus.com, features hundreds of additional product options, including items customers can’t find anywhere else.
“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.”
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.
One clarification from Toys”R”Us:
The figures are indeed 3.75-inch. Jabba is 6 inches, which is where the confusion is stemming from.
