Toy sellers prepare for midnight launch of new 'Star Wars' toys

The nation's largest toy retailers are getting ready for new arrivals from a galaxy far, far away. Just after midnight tonight, 24-hour Wal-Mart stores will bring out toys tied in to the new "Star Wars" movie, and many Toys R Us stores will re-open at the same time for special "Star Wars" events.

A Toys R Us spokeswoman says they're expecting "a couple thousand people" to line up for the unveiling of the new toys at the chain's flagship store, in New York's Times Square.

Wal-Mart, Toys R Us and Target each boast that their stores have exclusive "Star Wars" items not found at the other chains.
