Battle Over Endor Pre-Orders Canceled?

Yak Reader John Hurd writes in with some disturbing news regarding pre-orders for the Toys”R”Us exclusive “Battle Over Endor” multi-packs.

All pre-orders from Toys”R”Us will be canceled for the Battle of Endor per Toys”R”Us. I called them and inquired. It wil be put back online when they get them and know how many they will be getting. Supposedly they are getting less than what they were pre-ordered allowed. So everyone will be canceled.

For those that pre-ordered these sets, has this been your experience as well? Let us know in our forums or on facebook.

Target Exclusives Update

Yakface Reader Steven writes in with a follow-up to our previous report on the possibility of a limit of 2 per customer on the Hoth Box Sets:

Hey, I’m a Target employee and thought I’d give you the 411 on exclusives here at the store in TN I work at. The 2 per customer rule is kind of a generic rule for all extremely collectible toys, and to be quite honest, unless it was like the Zu Zu Pets were last Christmas, 99.9% of the cashiers really don’t care. As long as you don’t come through with ten of the same thing, you should be cool. Anyway, I’ve been reading for a long time, and it’s always good to see new info on the site!

Good to know – thanks for the news Steven!

Clone Wars Nikto Guard (TRU Exclusive)


The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Toys”R”Us exclusive Nikto Guard from the Clone Wars Collection.

PROS: Finally, we’ve received the figure that was originally intended to be included with the Clone Wars Jabba’a Palace Battle Pack from 2008. A great looking figure all around and well accessorized.

CONS: Lack of articulation in the legs limits poses available and the pre-posed leg positioning tends to make this figure unstable. A rather generic figure for an exclusive and the $10+ pricepoint might hamper this figure’s sell-through at retail.
