The online retailer previously released limited-edition spectacles for the launch of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The company says it works with partners to help create items of interest to customers, and can be held responsible for unsold items.
“The stock is a limited edition that has been designed to create hype around the launch of the console,” a company spokeswoman told CNNTech.
