    I wanted to create this thread so we can all keep each other informed on when and how to get this little guy. I thought it was going to be a promo at TRU with purchase of the interactive R2 that is being released on 8/26/02

    From what I've heard, you have to buy over 30 bucks of Star Wars stuff to get one, which I'll gladly do.

    The only problem I see is if you have to buy $30 worth of stuff to get him what will you buy? I mean I have all the figures todate so that is out. I have the new X-Wing that is also out. I have all the lego's to. What will we have to pick from to get him?

    TRU did this kinda thing where you buy 50 bucks worth of Hasbro stuff and you get a free SE VHS Episode 1. I asked if I could bring in receipts (how the hell do you spell that word lol?) and they said yes so I brought in 100 bucks worth and got two. Hopefully they will do this for R2.

    Dudes, I'm just gonna buy $30 worth of SW stuff, get the R2-D2, then return the $30 worth of SW stuff.


    It's too easy. :p

    Isn't that what I said? :p Although that's cool about the receipts thing. I didn't know they did that. Hopefully they'll let you do that with this.

    I never did get the AOTC Slave 1 or Zam's Speeder. Sounds like a convenient time to get them ;)

    Thanks for the idea of buy $30 worth of stuff and returning it just to get R2. What I will do is I will buy the $30 worth of stuff walk out of the store and it all to my wife and have her take it right back.

    I don't think it will be that easy. TRU will probably not allow it. They'll probably figure something out.

    They will never know. I have done it before where my wife has gotten something and then took it back because I have it already. And that is all I have to do to get R2.

    I can't get over how cheap everyone on this board is. Always looking for an edge to get over on legitimate businesses. Don't be surprised to see that these types of deals will never be offered again once the companies find out what a failure it is. and then who loses?
    By the way, these figures are going to be abundantly available. ToysRUs is going to advertise the offer in a back-to-school circular inserted into the Sunday paper.

    If u wanna bring the stuff back u can do it one piece at a time at different stores. So if you buy 6 figures u caN bring 2 back than 3 etc.

    "I can't get over how cheap everyone on this board is."

    Dude, the only reason I'm not going to spend $30 on something that I'll keep is because I've already bought thousands of dollars worth of SW stuff, and frankly I'm running out of room for something as big as a Slave I or Jedi Starfighter.


    My point is, I've bought way more than $30 worth of stuff from there, I just don't have the receipts.
