Toysrus set to throng this year’s Comic-Con with collection of toys

Toysrrus

With a collection of exclusive toys, Toysrus is ready to throng this year’s Comic-Con.

The limited line, curated specifically for this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, features items from some of the world’s biggest entertainment brands including Marvel, WWE, Transformers and Power Rangers.

The toys will be available both at the Entertainment Earth booth at the convention (from July 19 to 23) and online at Toysrus.com/ComicConvention (from July 20 to 23). The Comic-Con merchandise from Toys “R” Us is only available while supplies last.

In addition to the exclusive products which include action figures and dolls like POP! Movies: Scott Pilgrim Plumtree Tee from Funko and Marvel Legends A-Force Heriones Pack from Hasbro (pictured), the retailer will offer a number of deals and discounts to customers across the US from July 16 to 22.

Additional limited playthings include Star Wars The Black Series figures and a WWE Heavyweight Replica Title Belt.

The exclusivity of these products plays into the current trend of collectibles. Market research firm The NPD Group reports that collectibles grew by 33 per cent in the US in 2016 with the category representing 9 per cent of total US toy industry sales and raking in US$1.8 billion last year.

Last year, Melbourne-based Moose Toys marked its first-ever appearance at Comic-Con International with the debut of its Jessicake Limited Edition Golden Cupcake.
