It was nearly a year ago at Toy Fair 2009 that Hasbro announced two upcoming Cinema Scenes exclusive to Toys R Us: Kamino Showdown and Purchase of the Droids. In July, Han’s Hideout received images of the loose figures, but since then there has been little word on when they would be released and it had been feared they were cancelled altogether. Thankfully, Yodasnews was able to confirm with Hasbro through the Q&A that these sets are indeed still coming and will likely be seen on shelves in March! Thanks so much to Brian for the tip.
The question and answer went as follows:
YN: Any word as to when we might see those missing Galactic Heroes sets? The “Kamino Showdown” and “Purchase of Droids” sets were supposed to show up at TRU stores in August hit the shelf? So far we have neither heard nor seen anything. Have these sets been cancelled? Please say NO. Thanks!
Hasbro: It’s taken a while for the previous TRU Galactic heroes Cinema Scenes to move through retail, but right now we are looking at March on-shelf. We have packaged samples ourselves so they should be shipping soon if all goes well.
