    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.

    Duct tape is like The Force. It has a light side, and a dark side, and it holds the universe together...

    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. :p I could not miss our last event like this. It?s the last big one. No more first releases, of movies anyway.

    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! :p

    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. :D

    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). =D=

    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.

    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.
