One of the dangers for holding back product announcements for one or two times a year is that leaks are pretty likely-- especially when a "leak" is a full release of the product in another country! MouseDroid.com reports that Toys R Us Australia already has the Y-Wing Fighter for AUS$69.99. Hasbro has still yet to confirm this item for a US release, but odds are the USA will be seeing it in July or August.
We've read a few reports, most notable from the Yakface.com forums, that the long-delayed AT-ST from Galactic Heroes has arrived! Retail is $34.99. Originally slated as a September Kohl's exclusive last year, the item has been in limbo since showing up in the UK. But now? Toys "R" Us is getting it. Read more at Yakface.com!

The two Battle Over Endor action figure packs are hitting Toys "R" Us as you read this-- each is $24.99, which is a really good value for 4 new figures these days. Of note, my R5-P9 was packaged backward, with his dome spun around 180 degrees. There's nothing wrong with the figure once you open it, but it's possible some (or all) may be sold this way. Also, each package has a different Return of the Jedi-themed backdrop.
