Inside the Toy Box sums up the past week’s toy news, top sellers, trends, pre-orders and any other great happenings in the world of toys and pop culture. Be sure to scroll down and check out the sales at the bottom.
A trio of NYCC Exclusives went up for pre-order. Quantities are limited so jump quick at your chance to snag one of these. The MOTU sets are a steal and doing very well online. The NYCC Exclusives up for grabs are:
The Nightmare Before Christmas Series 1 is hitting the shelves just in time for Halloween so be on the lookout for those. As always, Diamond Select hit it out of the park with these. Also spotted on shelves is the Jack and Sally Coffin 2-Pack. Pumpkin King Jack is not out until next May, but it wouldn’t hurt to get your pre-order in now.
Target has some Force Awakens Black Series Exclusives to be on the look out for coming up in November. Some sellers on eBay already claim to have sets in hand even though they aren’t on shelves or available online at Target yet. The figures in the 2-pack are Poe Dameron (in Resistance clothes) and a First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper.
New POPS! to be on the look out for:
Thunderbolts Punisher (Walgreens Exclusive) (on shelves)
You don’t find these that ofter at the Big Box stores but also worth mentioning are Transformers Generations Combiner Wars figures. Starscream and Skywarp are always a top sellers, as well as Megatron. Wave 5 just went up for pre-order as well. These would be good to have on hand come Christmas time. I know the second Holloween is over people forget Thanksgiving and move right to Christmas. It is never too early for holiday shopping.
