To help Jedis and Padwans prepare to watch this classic installment in the Star Wars Saga in a whole new way, the broadest selection of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace toys are traveling at lightspeed to Toys“R”Us stores nationwide.
Customers will easily find the droids they’re looking for, as well as the newest Star Wars items, beginning Monday, January 30 when Toys“R”Us stores nationwide display the new line within a themed Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace boutique. Adorned with images of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul bordered by an epic space battle, shoppers will find all of the newest Star Wars toys, including several items available only at Toys“R”Us.
