    im gonna bribe the workers. I dont even like BK that much. plus having 2 people forced to eat it at least three times a week for the sake of getting just one set of the toys is a joke.

    We could make a mockumentery. Supersize my fandom. I belive maybe a few bribes could be in order. But seeing how I have worked for said company I think the easiest way to go is to buy the toys seperate. I think they are 2 bucks. its not only cheaper Plus we can have a healthy heart when we are done.

    I'm all for bribes. How much do you think we'll have to shell out for the Vader figure though? There's only 5 to a case.

    since most kids dont pay for the fast food I doubt they have much of a choice.

    So far as I know they are. Man, I miss the Pespsi/Taco Bell/Pizza Hut/KFC merchandising from Ep.I

    That rocked!

    EDIT: And no, I can't spell PEPSI right.

    yah, it did rock. That was the last time I really was in to collecting...I must have hit up every tacobell/pizza hut between here and Kansas.

    Sadly enough, I got tired of storing all of my EPI cups about a year ago and donated them to the Salvation Army. [face_blush]

    So I picked up all 4 preview figures at the Target near P-Town mall last night. There are still some there. I also went to B&N and picked up "Labyrinth of Evil." After suffering from a horrible geek-gasm, I went home.

    Anyone know where I can find Anakin's Starfighter? Toys R Us wasn't open when I got there.

    I didn't see a Clearance toy thread so I'll just post this here... :)

    I was in Walmart in La Junta yesterday and they have their Lego X-Wing (Dagobah) set that was $50 on clearance for $13 so if you don't have this one they had about 10 of them left.

    Believe it or not but La Junta actually has a 24-hour Super Walmart. The toys are on the east end and in the first rows past the jewelry. They also have the OTC action figures with the cloth robes for $2. And the Lego snow speeders for $5.

    OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!11!1111!!!

    I need more Snowspeeders!

    Hmmm...according to Mapquest...

    "Your estimated travel time is 1 hour, 32 minutes for 60.29 miles of travel in 7 steps."

    Hmmm...3 hours on the road just for toys. Is it worth it? Although...Gilbu just recently did it, so maybe it is...
