Word has come in that although the new 2012 Hasbro toys have a printed warning that toys should not be sold until January 30th, Hasbro has (wisely) decided to lift that ban. Both retail stores and online dealers can put all new Star Wars products on sale immediately. Orders should start arriving this week.
UPDATE: Hasbro has contacted me to let me know that the street date is in fact still in effect for all countries except for the UK, where the source for the original posting originated from. Look for the new toys to officially put on sale in a few weeks.
