How To Get Toys “R” Us Exclusives
The TRU exclusives aren’t exactly exclusive to Comic-Con, however, if you are going to be attending the show, you can only get them in the Entertainment Earth booth.
If you aren’t going to be attending the show, you can either watch their website for the items you want to be listed, or just wait until your local store gets them. Sometimes your store may not get all of the items, so it’s recommended that you order online if something in particular.
