From there, others started using the #WheresRey hashtag with their observations while trying to buy Rey-related Star Wars toys.

Another possible reason for the apparent lack of Rey in stores might be the popularity of the character. This Disney Rey figure, for example, is almost sold out on Amazon.

Rey figures are also going for higher prices on eBay in general than Finn figures, indicating that they might be selling out in stores.

There's also the spoiler argument: That is, toymakers might have been hesitant to include Rey in toys like the Monopoly set for fear of revealing details about the movie.

UPDATE WITH MODERATE SPOILERS

Disney contacted BuzzFeed, confirming that some Rey figurines were held out of stores until after the movie was released as they contain moderate movie spoilers. Disney noted that a new wave of Rey products will be available in January.
