By now, you’ve probably heard that the 2017 Disney Infinity line of toys was discontinued in February 2017, but now you know why: a new report from Engadgets has revealed that the company had spent $102,500 on a handful of toys for the next-generation of the line, and some of those toys were made in China.
The report, which was first reported by Bloomberg, revealed that Disney spent a whopping $102 million on three sets of new toys, but the biggest purchase was a set of “blue and white” toy figures for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.
That set of toys included a lightsaber, a stormtrooper helmet, and an AT-AT walker, and a number of them were made by toy-maker Buckyball.
The figures were made for around $1,500 each, but they were made to resemble the new characters and were expected to sell out.
Buckyball’s website indicates that the figures are set to release on May 19, but it’s not clear if those figures will be available online or in stores.
The site also lists a number the toys are expected to have retail sales, but not a retail price.
The toys were originally scheduled to hit shelves on June 18, but those dates were pushed back to June 24, 2018.
The toys in question were also made by a third company that is rumored to have a partnership with Disney.
Toys R Us announced in December that they will be producing three new Disney Infinity toys for Disney Infinity 4.0, and they include the first three toys in the line that Disney made with Buckyballs.
The toy sets are made of plastic and feature blue and white plastic figures.
