    I don't know if this was already talked about, but if I somehow manage to scrounge up 30 bucks worth of stuff on reciepts, can I still get the R2 free?

    Just from what I've read on TheForce.net and the previous posts in this thread. Keep an eye on your Sunday ads!

    I asked the manager of my local TRU and he said he never knew about this figure until he read about it in the latest ToyFare magazine. He also said that no one higher than him in the management chain has said anything about the promotion so he's speculating that it might not happen until October or November.

    Yo, imagine if they do it on "Black Friday" (Day after thanksgiving), now that would be good marketing.

    Hey guys. I heard awhile back that it was a "Limited Exclusive" I think I read in RebelScum.com that it's limited to 150,000. How limited is that? Did I hear right, 150,000? How rare are the Darth Vaders? I only have been able to find one and in less than mint con.

    I personally don't think it looks that great. I'm more into good replicas but if i get it for free buying star wars items i'll take it, but i'm not going out of my way to buy it off ebay. I think the silver vader looks worse lol.
