Princess Leia isn't the only female Star Wars character missing from shelves.
In November, the popular hashtag #WheresRey called attention to the fact that Rey, the lead character in the upcoming The Force Awakens, was not available in action figure packs in stores like Target and Walmart.
I'm so turned off by @target. No #PrincessLeia or #Rey to be found. Leaving the store NOW. #wheresrey #wewantleia pic.twitter.com/L74tNmjJ7b

However, retailers who do sell Rey products have noticed that they "are selling out fast," according to Bloomberg.
Target spokesman Lee Henderson also assured fans that Rey products will be more available "after the film opens."
