Yes, Media Play is only about a 5 minute walk from my house.
I am going to try and make it to Media Play tonight to join you for the release party probalyy around 10ish or so.
Has anybody stopped pre-ordering things? It seemed to work great for a while, but now it seems like everything that I dont pre-order is overstocked and absolutely available whenever I go. I feel like pre-ordering is getting a few extra dollars out of fans that NEED to have the DVD the day it comes out... when it would be there anyway.
Has anyone else noticed this?
If I cannot get it the day it comes out..I simply wait a month and pick it off at a Blockbuster Previously Viewed.
If its so hot, its gonna be more expensive to try and grab it so I'll sit and wait..I'm patient.
I'm still waiting for Sin City come to think of it.

Let me know if there are any addition and/or corrections to the list.
If anyone has any duct tape (I'm out and don't have the time to go out and get some) could you bring it along? We could really use some to put up the banners tonight at Media Play.
Duct tape is like The Force. It has a light side, and a dark side, and it holds the universe together...
I thought the duct tape was for my mouth
Oh no...they'd be far more inclined to use it on me my friend.
As far as costume, I am going to try for a "Jedi-ish" look anyway. Perhaps more like maybe an expanded universe / book look as I did not have time to really complete the real thing.
OK, I am still coming, even though HothGirl can't make it. AS always its understandable. I know I wouldn't be doing it. I'll get by somehow. I guess its not so bad with the rest of you Rebel Scum showing up. I could not miss our last event like this. It?s the last big one. No more first releases, of movies anyway.
super-last minute as always - but I'll be at MP - I'll try to make the party earlier but not sure yet...
Heh, Yeah, last Movie Release.
Until the Box Set, the Clone Wars Box Set, the 3D versions, the Special Editions of the new Trilogy, the DVD-Release of the 7'8'9 TV Series...
We'll get no rest =) But thats how we like it, right?
Yeah exactly...six movie set!
I wish I could pull it off guys but I'll be out that way soon with some luck. Definitly for the Toy Show in December and UNY Con (if I ever hear back).
I'll be thinking about everyone as the clock ticks closer to midnight! Though I will be with you in spirit as I've been wearing the female tusken costume all day.
Oh yeah Akya.
Thats the spirit!
Ok. will be there with my Jedi ish clothes. still lacking boots. Today I was at my preschool and instead of costumes we had pajama day. Nice costume, Hothgirl. *looking around for duct tape*
So who else slept in today?
I got up at 1:45pm...
Walmart Sucks. I thought the Bonus DVD there was free, but it was not. The single movie was $14.99 and trhe one with the bonus disk was $19.99 I passed on it as it was just a recap of the films and nothing new or behind the scenes.
The truly frustrating part of the WM Special DVD is that the label that combines the two sticks to the actual DVD case itself. The second DVD is not individually shrink wrapped.
Big thanks to everyone who participated! Congrats to those who had new costume debuts: DarSolo's Royal Guard, Ayakeon's (local debut) Stormtrooper and MadKidJedi's updated Anakin and borrowed Vader (that Wingnut got to wear too).
I'm working on getting the photos uploaded now...
There is a short blurb near the end of the R News Midday show each half hour from last night. You can see most of us throughout it. Ryan and Andy's friend (Dan?) is interviewed in it too.
The pictures from trick-or-treating and the DVD release event are now posted.
For those of you that missed the RNews blurb on our event I have posted it on my site. It's in MPEG format so it will work cross platform but that also makes it 13MB.
Awesome! Thanks for capping/posting that TX4277!
I think that was Connor's 1st TV appearance.
Pretty Sweet Shots my friend!
