    Found this on Artoosnews.com -

    Case Assortments Available
    R2N reader John was able to find out a nice bit of information about what's been hitting
    Toys R Us recently and what to expect in the next few weeks. His Toys R Us manager was
    able to confirm the the Silver R2-D2 is indeed set for a November release date, but that's
    as far as he knew at the time. Beyond that, the increasing amount of Toys R Us related
    store reports in the past couple weeks indicate it's the spot to score the newest of the
    new. Here's what John was able to find out on this subject:

    He gave me a 2 page listing of the 10 case assortments that they will be receiving for the
    Holiday season. There were 5 - Collection 1 assortments and 5 - Collection 2 assortments.
    The Ephant Mon case assortment was not listed as one that they would be receiving. This
    came from a 2 page memo that starts out by stating that "These are exciting times for Star
    Wars Fans!". It continues to state "Over the coming weeks we will receive over half a
    million figures in 10 different assortments of Star Wars figures (5 assortments or waves
    each for SKNs 402667 and 402659)." There is some various verbage for a few sentences
    and then it gives the case breakdown for the 10 assortments. The assortments listed are:

    Coll 1, 51-M,51-N,51-P,51-Q and 51-U(Clonetrooper pilot/Jango Pilot case)
    Coll 2, 61-B,61-H,61-J,61-K and 61-L

    As you can see, the 61-N, which is the Ephant Mon case is absent. The same holds true
    for the New Yoda/Destroyer Droid case scheduled for November. This might help some with
    knowing where to go to find the figs they still need.
