    Details not finalized at this time. Target is supposed to have an exclusive Vader figure available on April 2, first come, first served. They will supposedly be issuing a claim check ticket that morning before the store opens, they estimate people lining up as early as 6am. I propose as many of us as possible, in costume, be there between 5:30 & 6:00.
    My plan is to talk to the Manager of the McCain Target for details, and also contact the radio,TV, and Newspaper if there is enough of us interested in doing this. It would be great publicity for our FanForce, and maybe get some new members.

    I need two things from all of you by 6pm Sunday, March 27, 2005.
    1. We need to vote on the name of the club. If you do not like the current one in use, (Arkansith Galactic Renegades) then give me some other ideas.
    2. Who is willing to show up at Target on April 2nd;
    will you be in costume, and what time will you be there.
    Please post any and all comments, questions, or concerns ASAP.

    Ok this was my idea so I guess I better be there huh. I so want me one of those Vader figures. I will be there between 5:30 & 6:00am in full Stormtrooper Armor. I figure if we can get a few of us to show up like frantic little Star Wars geeks the local media may just eat it up, and get severe needed attention. Oh and I vote for title in use.

    I vote for the current title/name in place. It works for me.

    I will not be able to attend the toy meet. I'd love to but unfortunately, I am a lazy bum in the mornings. I just won't be able to pull off an early run like I used to. You guys have fun!

    As for media attention, I would call the local radio like 98.5 or some of the other real popular ones. Let them know what is going on and ask for their presence. See what happens. ;)

    Wal-Marts are (400 of them) are doing a major SW thing as well. Toys go on sell April 2 12:01 am in the morn ;)

    I could prob be there at Target in the McCain Blvd area (that's by the new Barnes and Noble right?) and be in costume no problem ;) though 5am is suuuuure awful early! But I'll try to be there around 6. But PLEASE if you change your mind and can't do it let me know pretty quick ;) so I can sleep in some cuz I was actually gonna hit Wal-Mart in Jax at midnight.

    I vote for keeping the current title as well.

    Well its after 6:00 and not enough response so I wont be trying to contact the local media about us being there. I will still be there but I will probably wait till around 6:00 am to go unless we hit one of the Wal*Mart at 12:00. We still have a thing to do in NLR starting around 8:00 am. Well no sleep for the hunter.

    Well tonight myself and another Conway ArkFFer went to the Wal-Mart at around 11:30, where we perused the aisles while waiting for the toys. We picked up some cheez-its because they were the first III item that we spotted, but I put them back to wait until tomorrow. We met up with some other fans as they stocked the shelves, and then the collecting began. I managed to get figures 1-32 (with a little help from my parental unit in Dallas), as well as four of the semi-deluxe figures. I kept away from most of the other merchandise as I feared running out of money, but I will return tomorrow for the tent. The highlight of the night (2 actually) involved the Aayla Secura action figure. As they went on the shelves, only one Secura figure appeared, and I happily nabbed it, and was pleased to find out that not only was it a Secura figure... it was mispackaged! The casing is that of a royal guard, but Secura was inside! Perhaps not a big deal to most people, but I love mispackages, typos and other errors... however, I also felt the need to wait around for a regular packaged Secura... which did not show... so we waited... and waited... and then the kind lady went to fetch us one more box... low and behold, the very first figure I spot out of the box... Secura! Well thats all for now, I'm wiped... talk to y'all tomorrow.

    Yes that was Nyborg on Chenal ;)
    He mentioned that Toys R Us was a flop :( Sad how sad... Target wasn't much better. They didn't open until 8am even though other Targerts were supposedly opening at 7. We had fun at Wal-Mart (NLR off McCain) at their tent sale :D That was sweeeeeeeet! [face_dancing] Got me a lil nifty Dooku Attacktix figure :D

    I had fun even though it was slightly cold at first ;) but awesome later! The book is out!! Yippee... I'm soooo gonna cry w/in the first 20 mins of the movie... :_|

    Target was alright, at least they had the basic Obi-wan, Anakin, Padme, Chewie, Vader, Grevious Guard, R2-D2, C-3PO. But this was the one on Chenal I dunno which Target you were at. And it was nice to get the Target exclusive Vader

    Forget what I said about Wal-Mart, I went to the one on Bowman talked with some people and they said the shipment of Early Bird Specials never came in. Can anyone else back that up, that they did NOT get early birds
