Even at 75% off, I was tempted to buy only one Star Wars figure at a sale today and that's mainly because its a 40th anniversary action figure and comes with a cool backing card

The implosion in the toy industry shows no slowing down as it has been announced Toys 'R' Us is prepping to liquidate its American Operations and worse it will hurt the toy industry as a whole. Its not just TRU though, Lego sales are down for the first time in over a decade and sales for Hasbro and Mattel and JAKKS Pacific are also down (the decline in demand for Star Wars toys is being touted as one of the reasons.) Yet what is Disney doing? Flooding the market with even more Star Wars merchandise that will just end up being pegwarmers like all the rest.

As TRU prepares to close, it will put over 30,000 jobs at risk. That's a lot of of people who will now have to struggle to find a new job and who will be feeling very frightened right about now. But no TRU in either the USA or UK? Its going to have massive repercussions for the toy industry as a whole and Disney really has not been helping a whole lot by flooding the market with merchandise people just don't want. Star Wars merchandise is not the hot seller it once was (dud movies like The Last Jedi didn't help) only cementing sales that were already falling.

Bratz Billionaire Bids For Toys R Us Canada

Isaac Larian, owner of Bratz dolls maker MGA Entertainment and a member of the Forbes 2018 World’s Billionaires List, was deeply shocked by the news. “You don’t understand how big of a devastation this is to the toy industry. Other retailers do not come close to Toys R Us.”

Newly released photos of Jabba's Barge have debuted online and it has many Star Wars collectors salivating. While I think its a beautiful piece, I don't want to buy it for several reasons - the first being its too impractical with its size. Plus then you have to have the various figures (which aren't included, naturally) to populate the Barge like Jabba etc which would cost hundreds of dollars more.
