    Went to K-Mart Riccarton today and found the AOTC novel. Quite cheap for a hardback SW book, only $34.95. There was a large stack of them underneath a few other books; and they were separate from the AOTC toys.

    I assume this means other stores should be receiving them, too.

    The SW issue of Time magazine with Yoda on the cover is also available for $4.95. It's about time Yoda was on the cover! :D

    At least this time there's only ONE cover design for the novel.

    Then again, there's FOUR different ones for the soundtrack. :(

    Well, mixed blessing.

    I got an advance of the soundtrack CD today (in fact it's playing right now) - we're not getting the bonus track version, and it looks really unlikely NZ is getting the 4 covers (we're getting the Aussie version).

    You see, I also got an American version (with Anakin & Padme) - one of two in the country. On that there's a sticker saying "Collect all 4 covers while supplies last" which is not on the Aussie one.

    The good thing is that the US version has been manufactured not to play on PC/Mac according to labelling. The Aussie version has no such labelling and can be played on your computer.

    Like the TPM soundtrack, the track titles tell a bit of the story (it has put a lot of the spoilers in order for me), but nothing as telling as TPM's "Qui-Gon's Noble End".

    So which design cover are we getting? I remember the Anakin/Padmé one and I thought it's the best. But if we're not getting that one... :(

    Like I say, there's a slim chance we will get all 4, but if it's just one (and the Aus version i got) it's just the cover with the poster art on it.

    Kitt, I'll reconfirm the release date tomorrow.

    The poster one huh, well that's not bad. But the Ani & Padmé one would be better IMO. You could get the poster one as a poster and have a different picture for the soundtrack. :)

    or you could get the soundtrack, mount it to your wall and you wouldnt need a poster.

    hmmm, that sounded more convincing in my head... ?[face_plain]

    Or you could just print out a copy of the Anakin/Padmé cover and slip it in the cover.
