    Hey, if there was any thread that was going to make it to 1000 posts, you'd hope it was this one considering how long ago it was started.

    Hunt her down and kill da foo!!!

    It always seems to be the way things like this happen. Dedicated "true" fans miss out on access to events like this, and people who have no idea who Darth Vader get to waltz in and see a film they won't care about tomorrow. Go figure... [face_rolling_eyes]

    Well, it's not like she doesn't know what Star Wars is, I know I made her sit through each film so far at least once while she was still in Perth...

    Is it too soon to begin counting the hours?

    At 10pm Saturday night we have 98 hours until RotS. Technically at this point it's still 4 sleeps but when the normal people rea this it will be 3 sleeps.

    In that case, Gooba, I think I'll double the amount of sleep I get. That will make time go faster. :D

    I didn't know there were any. I don't know about the rest of the country but in WA all the bus shelters with TPM and AotC posters got smashed and grabbed, so we figured they wouldn't be putting them up. The only RotS poster I have seen in Perth was the HUGE [link=http://members.iinet.net.au/~kathleen.press/pics/ifoundvader.jpg]one[/link], which also got an attempt at a smash and grab.

    Well, they're out there, in Brisbane at least. I've seen seven different posters - Mace Windu, Yoda, Anakin vs Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, General Grievious and Clonetrooper. There's also what I'm calling a chaser, which is (according to a mate of mine) a lentricular style of an Anakin headshot morphing into a Vader headshot. It looks damned cool. I don't think any of them will be easy to get - every one I've seen has been in a shelter with two locks built into the frame.

    Oh, and I'm forgetting something...

    45 hours (give or take a few minutes) to go.

    Apparently they are out and about in Perth. My fiancé saw some last night. I believe he's seen Mace, Yoda and Vader but I'll have to tell him about the Grievious and Ani/Obi ones. He said they seem to be in a really out of the way place, but definately in the open so as to maybe stop theft.

    Has anyone ever actually triend ringing up AdShel and seeing if they will let you have some of the posters once they are done with them?>

    Already covered the possibility, Fallen_Angel. The answer in the past has always been a variation of "Hell, no!".
