    I'm confident that Star Wars Episode II Attack Of The Clones will have a charity premiere one or two weeks before the 16 May premiere. There'll bound to be an Exclusive goodie bag too.

    So the question is: Will you fork out $60-$100 to watch AOTC 1 week earlier than the others, with the extra goodie bag?

    Thanks. Cheers!

    Well, me too. For me it is more a case of fitting the screening time into my schedule. argh.

    However, since this time around, AOTC will be a one-world release, with the earliest screening on 12th May in the States and Canada, that's probably the earliest we will see it, if FOX wants to organise it. Not one week or two, methinks.

    Maybe we can call FOX to find out. Hmm.

    IMHO, I'll do it as
    1) It's for Singapore Charity;
    2) Will be the first few hundreds or thousand to see AOTC and
    3) Goodies bag is an added insentive(sp?).

    Anyway, I'll prefer not to see this news being announced again by the ignorance mass media [link=http://www.texnews.com/starwars/kids0529.html]American kids bring 'Star Wars' fever to Singapore[/link]

    If these kids were so fanatic with SW, where were they during the Planet Hollywood SW Party and YHS/Pepsi/The Hereen Costume Contest and other local SW contest?

    Hear, hear! :)

    "Maybe," I was thinking the other day, "we can do something useful to the charity scene while prancing around in cool clothing, since we will attracting all that attention anyway. Maybe wear a pink ribbon or a red ribbon something. Perhaps. Perhaps."

    Maybe a few of us can wear the Official Rubies Costumes top with pink ribbons and bows and pink/neon color socks and slippers and stand with the rest dressed in our homemade costumes. [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    A Gal and a Guy from the 501st did that during last year's Comic Con as a form of protest against the suing of a good Stormtropper Armor Maker by the tiggerhappy Canadian Lawyers of LFL and it looks very cute when they stand with the rest of the 501st Legion during the photoshot. See if I can find the photo again online. :p

    Ya, me too! :(

    Today, I've just decide to use maybe Lilac/Lavender/Purple Cotton Drill or some other cheap but strong Cotton fabric to make my Wesell's body suit which is now end up as overall. Just can't spare SGD100 to get that Nylon Lycra from Spotlight. :_|

    The last time in 1999, it was for the Singapore Children's Charity (real name?). And it cost SG$100 and sold at The Hereen. The US online mass media also report it wrong when they say "it took American Kids to bring SW to Singapore" when at least 20 local fellows came in costumes and so many, many more locals attending it compared to smal no. of US Kids.

    Anyway, just don't put your hopes to high as there had been no words that there'll be a Charity Premiere for AOTC in Singapore on May 11 or 12th. It only been confirm in certain parts of US.

    I agree with Darth_Eagle on this as there hasn't been any news whatsover from the newspapers.

    But of course, I still have my hopes up. :D. Since they had one for TPM, they should have one for AOTC too...

    Not as bad as if in US cause it's US$500! That's about SG$925 and can get me relatively Full Biker Scout Armor (with helmet, holster, boots and some other misc stuffs!) :eek:
    [link=http://www.starwars.com/episode-ii/news/2002/04/news20020417.html]Charity Screening Updates: CA, PA, & WA[/link]

    And for those who think they can afford the Singapore Charity Premiere, get ready your cash and pray hard it don't get higher than SG$100. Better still, pray hard it's SG$50. :p

    If I go, I'll probably not be a Purple Bounty Hunter; maybe TPM Padme Naberries Tatooine or Padme Amidala White Battle or even Manga Leia.

    If anyone coming, give me a buzz okay? ;)

    I (and other people ;) ) had heard words that there MAY be one in Singapore, the location and date but nothing about pricing. I'll PM you all when it's fully out (and hope before the general public got to know too! :D )

    I'm hoping there'll be one...I wouldn't mind the price it remains at S$100 or less like in TPM. It is for charity after all..

    EEeeekkkk!!!! Malaysia one step of us!!!!

    "Here in Malaysia, it was announced in the local newspaper, that McDonalds and Celcom are organizing an AOTC charity premiere on May 11, in a big screen cinema. Since Malaysia is a few hours ahead of Poland, I guess here is the earliest screening of AOTC. The price of the charity ticket is RM100 - ten times the usual price."

    Singapore, WAKE UP!!!!!!

    Why in the world some stuffs get release in Singapore and Malaysia at the same time? ?[face_plain]

    Hmm, tickets are RM100; that's SG$48. So will the Singapore one be SG$50 as I prayed for? :D

    Oh don't worry, guys. Singapore SW Fans may be the first to see AOTC cause there may be a difference in the screening time on May 11th and some fan may even get luckier to see it even first. Unfortunately, I was saving up for the Charity Premiere so that's the earlier I'll be seeing AOTC. :_| :_|

    Hey, hey, hey, where did that blip on Celcom come from? 11th May? SHeesh....

    I have a feeling that the screening is going to be in KL. *sigh*

    I know they are supposed to be selling AOTC prepaid cards (but I haven't seen them around...) but still...

    Hmm..I don't think it'd be as low as $50. You know Singapore Charities...hehe

    But there's something I feel weird here..you all are talking as though that the Charity Premiere is confirmed for Singapore on 11th May. Is that true?

    The Premiere is confirmed but there's still restricted info concerning the ticket price (suspected to be SG$100 as usual), the time (7pm?) and date of sale to the public. Location is not at Prince (like TPM), I last heard, somewhere more centralized to most of us. ;)

    Anyway, anyone want to borrow lightsabers on the day of showings? I now got an extra Purple Blade one but it's the cheaper version. Other available for Normal Sparing is my Qui-Gon Jinn (and maybe my bro's QGJ too), Vader (Shorten by a few cm now :( ) and Maul. Also got the SCV lightsaber but it got the ugly writing on the blade. :D

    I will not spend $100.00 on AOTC! I'm neither rich nor wanna have a heartache on 16 May 02.

    I'd rather spend $100 on AOTC stuffs... or watch 12 times after 16 May 02... Anyway, it's just 5 days difference only. And I'll be 12 hours earlier than those ANG MOH! Hehe!
