    Well we were talking about the Xbox/ PS2 versions of the Lego game but my video card is pretty much top of the line with Pixel Shading 2.0. I'd rather get games like that for a game system anyways. Thanks for the info though.

    Awesome I can't wait!!! And three days later the movie.

    From what I saw at the Burger King area at Celebration III, they are having for the promotion:

    -the kid's meal toys
    -Burger King paper crowns with characters on them
    -and a scratch and win game or something for the adults.

    I was hoping for the collector glasses but I have sadly not seen or heard anything on this.

    The STAR WARS Slurpee cups will be available at Seven Eleven in the next few days I have heard.

    I had heard a while back that they were going to do collectible glasses. But since BK didn't have any on display at C3, I guess that was just some mis-information. Too bad, in my opinion I think glasses like the OT ones that BK put out "back in the day" would have been a no-brainer.

    I was a bit disappointed with the BK display at C3. Instead of doing that stupid "scratch" game for a free Whopper, they should have given out a random toy from their upcoming kids meals. They could have marked the back of the badges like Hasbro did to prevent people from hording them.

    BTW: Chris, the 7-11 cups are already out there. I found them last Thursday I believe at the 7-11 in Marlboro. There are 4 different lenticular cups and one topper (Vader) available. Haven't found the "Darth Dew" Slurpee flavor though. Word is there will also be a large Yoda mug available there as well.

    Just heard on Howard Stern that Bai Ling role in ROTS has been cut out because of her upcoming appearance in Playboy magazine. Odd considering she was at C3 signing autographs.

    Well Episode 3 came out for all systems today. I bought the Xbox version because Xbox rules them all. I got home with my copy at 11am and had it finished on normal at 4pm. It a fun game with lots of movie scenes. The fights with the main Jedi's are very tough. It will take a while for me to finish it on hard. Stay away from this game if you are spoiler free because it has a ton.

    Ling is just trying to drum up publicity for herself. Total crap, IMO.

    A little update on the BK promotion. According to rebelscum.com, BK has moved up the start date from 5/16 to THIS Wednesday, 5/11. I guess they will start promoting it with a series of commercials that will start running on FOX tomorrow during American Idol.

    I've heard that you can actually buy just the toys from BK for about $1.99 a piece. Not a bad alternative to clogging half of your arteries ;)

    Hit the BK in Marlboro today for lunch. Scored the Falcon and the Carbonite Han. Completely forgot to ask the kindly woman behind the counter to search for the HTF Vader/Ani one.

    I asked about the Ani/Vader. I got the typical 'they are randomly distributed' line.
