No Rogue One Toys During the New York Toy Fair 2016

HasbroHasbro officially announced that there will not be any Rogue One toys revealed during the 2016 Toy Fair in New York.

 

Here’s the official statement sent to The Daily SuperHero (via JediNews):

“We wanted to let you know that there will be no toys based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story shown at Toy Fair this year. While there will be a small selection of new Star Wars toys revealed at Toy Fair and in the days leading up to it, none of them will be directly based on the new characters from the upcoming film.”

 

This info sheds even more doubts over THIS report from a few days ago. Disney skipping the NY Toy Fair is not something unexpected though. They did the same last year, mainly because the event is too early in the year and they prefer to reveal products and other information on their own events like Star Wars Celebration and D23. Of course SDCC is an exception, but it’s just too popular to be missed out.

    The toy situation is a fiasco. If you look at the Target website, every store in my area (and that’s a lot of stores) lists the Rey 3.75-inch figure as “in stock.” I have visited several of those stores and none actually have it. The Star Wars shelves are half bare and I haven’t seen any changes in weeks. Many weeks.

    According to an employee, all the figures are under the same code, so they don’t actually know what they have or what they are going to get, which seems absurd, especially since the UPC and product numbers are unique on the packaging.

    But don’t worry kids — you can get Constable Zuvio!

      I finally found a Rey figure a couple days ago–I had been looking for one for weeks for my son’s birthday (now past). Finn was also hard to find. I had the same experience as you, with the figure listed as “in stock” online but not actually there when I arrived.

      Disney will either buy Hasbro or make everything in house themselves. A matter of when not if.
