    OK, the release is coming quickly and we have nothing arranged.

    April 2nd is the Midnight Madness for the ROTS toy lines. While I am not sure what stores in the area are going to be participating, I plan to find out shortly. Does anyone want to try to plan anything for this?

    I know that some of us are going to C3, I think it would be great to meet for a meal while in Indy, or even hang for a while in the Convention Center.

    And, of course, there's the midnight release of ROTS itself! I went to Regal Manor Cinema over in Lancaster for AOTC and it is the best theater in the area. I was going to order my tickets from Fandango when they become available , if we want to go as a group, I can order all the tickets at once to assure that we get them.

    Let me know what ya'll are thinking and would like to do!

    Thanks, I had seen that list yesterday after posting.

    So, the 2 in our area are doing Midnight Madness.

    Which one does anyone want to "attack" that night?

    BTW, are you joining up?

    Just passing on information.

    I may show up at the one in Lancaster.. Haven't made up my mind yet. Since I'm not a figure collector.

    I am mainly going out for the ROTS Unleasheds and if anything else really catches my eye. I am not the figure collector that I used to be, but if there is one or 2 that interest me, I'll pick them up.

    Just thought I'd drop in here. I see they are having it at both Lancaster and Wyomissing...interesting. Well, if my group doesn't head out to Wyomissing, I may come with you guys to Lancaster(midnight is a little late to drive 45 min).

    Steph, you are more than welcome to come on down! If we get a group together for the MM at TRU in Lancaster, we can all grab something to eat at the Lyndon Diner at the next exit at 30 and do a meet and eat and chat!

    I am very thankful that the MM is on a Friday night this year as it'll be easier to deal with the loss of sleep over a weekend rather than a work night.

    I'm gonna ask my parents about this. Maybe I'll be able to come join you in lancaster on friday and then afterwards we could raid walmart and at 6 am attack target for the exclusive lava vader!

    I talked to my mom and she said we could come along, so I'll be joining you at the lancaster toys r us off the harrisburg pike. What time do you think we should meet up around?

    OK what I said about going to lancaster now I'm not so sure of. If Megan's parents allow her to go out I'm going up to harrisburg then instead to the toys r us there for the madness. But if she can't then I'll still be going to the lancaster one. OK did you get all that I hope so.

    PS the free yoda figure at toys r us isn't until April 10th, NOT repeat NOT friday night for midnight madness.

    I plan to be at TRU for MM, then I will head over to Walmart in York to see if I can get my hands on the Early Bird exclusive, then home for a few hours sleep before hitting Target to try to get the Lava Vader exclusive.

    I have also learned that you only have to purchase 25 dollars worth of stuff to get the holo yoda on the 10th NOT $35.

    Hey guys! I think I am going to be over at the Camp Hill TRU at midnight - it's not far from Carlisle, and the easiest to get too.

    Anyway, I wanted to let you guys know how I'm doing. Back in early November I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and immediately started chemotherapy. It has been quite insane, but I am starting to feel better in general. I will be having chemo at least through May, but hopefully that will be it. Wanted to let you know what was going on, and also I hope to be posting more often on the boards now!

    Glad to see you back, Elizabeth! I am sorry to hear of your illness. It's good to hear that you are feeling better. I know that chemo can be very taxing.

    I can understand not wanting to drive down just for MM this Friday, but know that you are more than welcome to come down for any thing we do, especially for the Midnight Premeire!

    I was planning to get there between 10:30 and 11:00. I had suggested Lyndon Diner, which is the next exit down on 30 on Manheim Pike.

    The TRU exclusive Yoda will be available tomorrow night. Apparently TRU changed their mind again...

    And toys r us have changed their mind yet again, as reported on theforce.net and rebelscum.com the exclusive yoda figure has been moved yet again back to the orginal april 10th release. In other news toys r us will be charging more for their figures than walmart but if you have walmarts news flyer with their price of 5.24 toys r us will match that price.

    I was thinking about wearing my new costume just to see the reactions.

    What new costume? I am sad to say that the only thing I could where would be the Jedi costume I wore to the RenFaire, or a TIE Pilot costume in need of a lot of work.

    You made Darth Nihilus? Was it a difficult costume to make?

    Are we going to set a time to meet? Who all is up for getting a bite afterwards?

    No it was pretty easy.. the tricky part is the mask. The rest is just black robes..

    I wasn't planning anything really. I'm playing it by ear at this point.
