We knew the Commander Gree was coming since that was shown off at Star Wars Celebration, so no surprise there. Also, the A-Force boxset was long-rumored to be a TRU exclusive, so nice to get confirmation there. The metal Voltron figures are the standout to me here, the fact that they can combine is awesome. Those will be tough gets. I am not going to worry about the X-23 Pop until it hits stores, but I wish Laura was a general release and not an exclusive.
The following Toys“R”Us exclusives will be available ONLY at the Comic Convention from Wednesday, July 19 – Sunday, July 23, and online at Toysrus.com/ComicConvention from Thursday, July 20 – Sunday, July 23.

That Issac Yankem is a must-buy. It takes the sting out of Mattel not announcing a WWE exclusive a couple weeks back. These will only be available at the show and on the TRU website. The other stuff here is neat, but the standout for me are the Minimates, these things never slow down in popularity and kudos to Diamond Select for getting so many out to us to collect without sacrificing quality.
Overall, partnering with TRU and Entertainment Earth is very smart for these brands. It takes some of the pressure off their booths on the floor, and making them available in stores and online as well gives people plenty of chances at these. Applause all-round!
