In addition to the Dark Edition Starter Pack news we received this morning, Activation also announced some changes to their Eon’s Elite figures.
This past year, the new line was available exclusive at GameStop for a retail price of $24.99 with eight figures coming out in total.
Toys ‘R’ Us will now be the exclusive retailer for at least some of these figures and they will have a new lower price of $19.99.
Slam Bam, Zook and Voodood will be released in November at Toys ‘R’ Us stores
Ghost Roaster, Boomer and Dino-Rang will be released in December, but did not specify if those also will be available exclusively at Toys ‘R’ Us.
