New Star Wars at Toys R Us


We've gotten a number of reports in the last couple days that Toys R Us stores are getting the 2010 Star Wars assortments in, but we're getting mixed reports whether you can actually buy them due to the 8/6 date on the cases. Some are having luck, others not so much, so your mileage will vary on this one! Happy hunting though.
