The LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens First Order General (5004406) minifigure polybag is finally listed on Toys R Us’ website for $4.99. This most likely means that it should be showing in stores here in the US as part of an upcoming promotion. This minifigure was first released as a promo in TRU Hong Kong and after a few months, it will finally be available here. The character isn’t too special but polybag collectors would want it anyways. I’ll try to check the status of the minifigure when I get to work tomorrow. The item number is 553205 if you’re searching for it in stores.
Update: I’ve checked the system and there are 6,300 polybags at the closest distribution center here in California waiting to be sent out to stores in nearby states. There’s still no word on when they will be available.
