Toys R Us Midnight Events

Want to see the 501st in large numbers? Go to your local Toys R Us on July 25th, where the each store will be opening at midnight. The 501st won't be at each one, but I know that there will be a number of appearances across the nation. I personally will be at the New York Time Square location.

Clone Wars Coming Soon to Toys "R" Us

To celebrate the highly anticipated August 15 theatrical release of The Clone Wars, Toys"R"Us and Lucasfilm Ltd. have partnered to create the ultimate Star Wars destination in U.S. Toys"R"Us stores nationwide. The adventure begins in July with the installation of countdown clocks in every store ticking toward the July 26 launch of the largest selection of toys, construction sets, role play accessories and more based on The Clone Wars.

"For more than three decades, Toys"R"Us has been the ultimate destination for kids and collectors interested in bringing home the magic of their favorite Star Wars films," said Greg Ahearn, Senior Vice President of Marketing and e-commerce for Toys"R"Us, U.S. "Our partnership with Lucasfilm will bring The Clone Wars to life with stunning in-store boutiques, an unparalleled assortment of products and exclusives, and up-to-the-minute countdowns to Star Wars excitement throughout the year."

"Toys"R"Us has been an ardent supporter of the Star Wars franchise since the introduction of the first toy line in 1977," said Howard Roffman, President, Lucas Licensing. "Generations of kids have found their favorite Star Wars toys on the shelves of Toys"R"Us stores, and we're thrilled that they will also be a major partner to Lucasfilm on The Clone Wars."
