Upon visiting my local Toys”R”Us today, I managed to take a peek at the planogram been used to reset the aisle and it indicates that the exclusive Clone Wars Nikto Guard (Puko Naga) is part of this reset and should be hitting stores in the next few days.
Although still officially, “unofficial”, we’ve received reports that the exclusive Rise of Boba Fett Ultmate Battle Pack has started hitting Toys”R”Us stores ($99.99) in California and Arizona. Just to recap, this Clone Wars item was initially revealed over at Sandtroopers.com a couple months ago and it includes an all-new, larger Slave I, Boba Fett, Bossk, Mace Windu, R8-B7, Anakin Skywalker and Mace Windu’s Jedi Starfighter.
PROS:Despite its immense size, Hasbro managed to pack all the articulation and sculpted details that we’ve become accustomed to on figures a third of its stature. The unique packaging also sets this figure apart from the basic figure line.
CONS: If you haven’t played the game, I doubt you know who this dude is. The $14.99 price point is a bit high but considering it uses enough plastic to make two and a half figures, I guess it seems about right.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

Unless Toys”R”Us runs a promotion, this sucker is going to set you back $14.99… but by the pic above, you can see just how big he is compared to Wat Tambor… but you can decide for yourself if he’s worth it after the jump!
