    Sorry, Nismo. It's horrible going spoiler free for so long and then to lost it because of something stupid. I can understand the need for the spoilers to be on the cards, but it's a serious pain when the movie still hasn't come out.

    I got spoiled right here in the forum. A guy put up a post in an unrelated thread complaining about what he couldn't tell his friends about Episode 2 and I scrolled though it as fast as I could. I still saw 2 things though.. They are burned into my mind and I've tried booze, huffing paint, anything to damage my brain into forgetting.. I now have a severe motor control problem but I remember the spoliers! Thanks Bozo! :(

    (p.s.> I'm KIDDING about the booze and huffing thing, but it does make me mad and I wish I could forget.)

    I'm upping this because I think we have some confusion on the difference between this thread and the other thread.

    For the record:

    This thread is relating to any and all spoilers that are not Jedi Council Forum related. That is, magazine and newspaper articles, toys, TF.N articles, commercials, food packages...whatever.

    The ***Spoiler Alert*** thread is now to be used for spoilers here on the boards only. This helps the mods by letting them know when they need to hunt something down and correct it on the board.

    Hope this clears something up.

    Nismo, I was also upset when I openned my Anakin figure. However, I got over it very quickly. Believe me, I don't know much of anything about the movie, but I know there is much, much, much more to it than that. :)

    I was spoiled by the Star Wars fruit roll-up things. They're very good but the free stickers that come in them have descriptions of certain scenes on them, much to my chagrin. :( But as much as I don't want to know any more spoilers, whenever I find something out, I get more and more excited about the movie.

    I've been looking all over for the fruit roll-ups. Now, I suppose, I'm glad I didn't find them. [face_plain]

    Arrrgh! I was flipping through an AOTC coloring book the other day when I saw glimpses of spoiler scenes, illustrated as plain as day!

    I should never have picked up that evil book!

    There may be a small spoiler in the "clones" TV commercial for the movie. It can give away a little bit of the nature of the clones. You would probably miss it, but I noticed it. So, if you want to avoid all spoilers at all costs, don't watch that commercial ;)

    DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT read Jeffrey Wells' new Hollywood Confidential column at Reel.com. After many pre-release negative rants, he finally has good things to say about the film after seeing it, but he's filled the whole review with HUGE spoilers. Avoid at all costs.

    Yeah, I started to edit both reviews for NSA, but I realized that there would be one sentence left. It wasn't possible. Sorry.

    I don't understand. There are enough of us non-spoiled here for TF.n to take into consideration. One non-spoiled review would have been nice.

    I agree Queenie... but I have a sneaking suspicion that we are the minority at theforce.net...

    We're the minority everywhere, it seems. A crucial plot event in particular has been spoiled in every single review I've glanced over. And TFN doesn't even feel like using spoiler tags anymore. I give this trend a big thumbs down.

    I refuse to read anything pertaining to Episode 2. I don't care right now, because I read one that I thought was spoiler free. Of course, it wasn't. Damn.

    Well, fortunately, we only have one more week.

    The next problem arises with Episode III. Perhaps we can petition for a more spoiler-free friendly environment all the way to the end. :)

    I'd like to recommend that non-spoilerees avoid the Official Site's "Stars talk Clones and Ep III" article. There's an allusion to a spoiler.

    I suppose that technically if it's on the OS, it's not a spoiler, but that still doesn't change the fact that that article could ruin one of the surprises of the movie. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your point of view :p ), I'd already seen that spoiler somewhere else.

    I cant trust any site anymore for spoiler-free news- even on spoiler-free boards spoiled people lets things slip- no were is safe anymore. But as much as id like to , i cant go without the web for a whole week.

    The new Jango Fett action figure contains a spoiler that some might want to avoid.

    Jay Leno shows a pretty major spolier during his internview with Hayden. When he whips out the action figure, TURN OFF THE T.V.!! Don't wait! TURN IT OFF! CHANGE THE CHANNEL!

    Please don't ruin it for yourself if you can!

    There is a new Jango figure? Or are you referring to the original one?

    The new Jango, the "Final Battle" one.

    Im referring to the Jango Fett (#31) that came out this week. I found it in wal-mart yesterday along with the new non-deluxe Mace Windu (#28).

    I'd like to give an additional warning to avoid MoffJake's site if you want to remain spoiler-free. He mentions the spoiler that's in the "Hayden Action Figure" commercial.

    So, even though it's a cool site with lots of videos, don't go there until you've seen AOTC next week. :)

    So let me tell you a little story...

    We are having a garage sale today, and my family was talking about Hayden on the Tonight Show...

    I'm Spoiled, thanks to my family! I haven't even watched the stupid thing (don't if you haven't already!)! I'm furious.

    To those who are spoiled, please tell me that it isn't a HUGE spoiler... tell me that I still have a lot to look forward too on Wednesday Night/ Thursday morning!.

    I'm going to lock myself in a cave...

    Let me just say, stay out of bookstores until May 16!! I'm not entirely sure, but I think I picked up a HUGE spoiler by just glancing at the AOTC merchandise section of Waldenbooks. I was walking by, and out of the corner of my eye I caught a spoiler staring at me from the cover of a book, as plain as day. Now, because I have remained spoiler free until this point, I'm not sure that my conclusions are correct. There may be another explanation. But you should definitely stay away in case I'm completely correct in my assumptions. :mad:
