Anybody find him yet?
It sounds like this is going to happen this weekend! I hope so!
this weekend ? ehhh must max out credit cards on R2's before hitting ebay. mmmmmuuuuhhhhhaaaahahahahahahahahha.
but seriously when's this thing supposed to show up.
maybe next week, do you think it will be in the Sunday flyer?
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?
"It sounds like this is going to happen this weekend! I hope so! "
I thought October?
I haven't found him yet, but I sure would like to have R2-D2 part of my collection, where are you R2-D2?
why did you think it sounded like it would happen this weekend?
what is your evidence???
Now what exactly are the specs of this deal? is it $25 dollars of SW stuff at Toys R US and you get him? I dont remember...
Just from what I've read on TheForce.net and the previous posts in this thread. Keep an eye on your Sunday ads!
Is this hitting Canada?
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.
October or november?!?!?! NO!!!!!!!!!!!
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 heard that the Vaders are around 5000.
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.
october or november? YES!!!
I can buy the AOTC DVD, and maybe just one of the small AOTC Lego sets
Up.......any new news guys?
yes. my toys r us is clueless here in the Triangle area of NC. Neither the Cary store nor the Raleigh one know abou this.
I spoke with a manager in PA. He had absolutely no clue about what I was talking about.
I wonder when we're actually going to get some real news on this.
