hey, im only 16, so i cant say im a true-original-badass star wars fan. but i can say star wars was among he-man and ninja turtles as one of my earliest interest at age 7. ive always loved the toys, some books, a few comics, other merchandise but overall, the movies. well for episode 1, i went to wait in line. locally star wars isnt big due to a small town. i went to wait in line @ 2:30pm after my school got out and i was maybe 30th in line. little did i know that u had to take a number and u could leave. then i found out iw as 70+th in line. i ended up being THREE spots away from getting midnight tickets. this year i will go early morning (here people line up after lunch kinda) and be first. i will buy maybe five tickets for my friends, i want to know how hardcore fans like yourselves would re-act to a mediocre fan being first in line? i dont want to start any gripes because i know SW fans are really critical. anyways, thanks for feedback. -later. ps: all my stores were sold out of sw toys, i got some in the second shipment but ordered count dooku online! just wanted to share.
