If you have been patiently waiting on the Toys R’ Us exclusive LEGO DJ mini-figure from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, then you might want to head out to your local TRU. Originally rumored for a January 1st release, some collectors have started seeing them on shelves. Reddit reader Flynnlives89 snagged a couple from his local TRU in Iowa. He then said that after he purchased them, the store manager took the rest off the pegs until January 9th.
Currently there is no information concerning pricing, but if I were a betting man, it would probably be in the $3 to $4.99 neighborhood.
DJ (40298) is similar to some of the recent LEGO Star Wars mini-figure polybags like R3-M2 and the Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) in which they have a connectible stand along with a background card.
