    I'm shocked there isn't a general thread for this here already!

    Edit. No piracy on these boards, please.

    anyhoo this can be the general "wow that movie was great!" thread. (as when it is released, it is not classed as "spoilers")

    So from the date of release to the date you actually see the film, you may want to avoid this thread as people may come back here and say "this scene was great wasn't it" etc.

    AOTC - one month (in a few days) and counting...

    :D

    EDIT = spelling

    Episode II Movie: 4 weeks, 3 days, and about 6 hours!

    If you go to the 12:01am, 16 May screening here in New Zealand, it'll only be 07:01am, 15 May in US Central Time - or 17 hours before those in middle America. :D




    Episode II Figures: 1 week, 1 day and about 6 hours!

    IF anyone does a midnight sale. :(

    New billboard on Symonds Street. :) Kitt must have spotted it too... unless she was falling asleep on the bus. 8-} And now there's TWO! That darn Ice Age one is gone! :D

    Is it the poster, or something else?

    Could you get a photo of it?

    BTW - about this thread - can we keep spoilers out of it? Technically there should be no spoilers outside the Episode II and III Spoilers Allowed boards. Thanks.

    It's the new poster art: [image=http://www.iconographics.net/Images/Standard_2/StarWarsEpisode2-Clones.jpg]

    Surely you have seen it. :) It's not a "wide" version, like the first one, so it only occupies half of the billboard and the other half has "Attack of the Clones", yada-yada you-know-what written on it.

    I could probably get a picture of it. I need to use up that film too, so I see what those pictures of me, Lisa and Yoda look like.

    It's quite cool ... there's the big 'Attack of the Clones' one, then the teaser with Ami and Ani beside it.

    This thread will remain spoiler free... until it is released - then there are no such thing as spoilers".

    Good :)

    And yes, I've seen the poster, but I haven't seen or heard about it being in billboard form before :D

    If you wanted a picture for TFN, jp would be the better one to take a picture, because I think he has a digital camera. He doesn't work far from there, either.

    Hey, who couldn't look good next to Yoda. Or Maul for that matter, lol.

    Just wondering, is anyone here checking up spoilers? I'm spoiler-free myself...

    I was gonna be spoiler free, then sw.com started with those weekly (?) selects. I got hooked, and then had to discuss the images in the PSA board.

    I read all the spoilers up until about a month ago, grabbed the leaked storyboards etc - I think there's a point when even the spoiled can know TOO much. That's why I stopped going to the PSA board...

    I'm pretty much totally spoiled. I'm sure there will be many things in the movie I don't know about, though. I don't intend to read the novel beforehand.

    I was spoiler free for Ep1, the only spoiler I knew was that Maul died. Didn't know Qui-Gon died.

    Having been both ways, I think I actually prefer to be spoiled. For one thing, it kind of drags the fun out over three years, instead of just two hours. Also, it doesn't feel like a Star Wars movie to me unless I know what happens next. I enjoyed Ep 1 far more the second time ... the first time, it was such a bombardment of eye candy it was hard to follow the story.

    The Episode II novel (hard back) hits the Australian bookshops on 23 April at a price of Aus$39.95 (roughly NZ$48) ... I'd guess it'll be released here the same day too.

    I've also just received a list from Iconix of the figures being released here on Tuesday too - 30 in total (including the Deluxe Figures). :)

    I think I'll go see the movie, then come back and read the script in case I missed anything, then go see the movie again...depending on how good it is. :D

    I prefer the paperback books (they take up less room), so I'll have to wait until later in the year before I get the Episode II novel. :(

    I still haven't read the Episode I novel yet ... or almost all the other Star Wars novels.

    I was waiting until I could read them all in order, but it doesn't look like they'll stop writing them in the near future ... thankfully. :)

    Paperback books are a lot cheaper too. Have you seen the hardback NJO series at Borders? They cost more than $50! [face_shocked]

    That too. :)


    The new TV Guide's Internet page has addresses for Star Wars: Epsiode II websites, and includes a the web address of SWNZ ...
    Local collectors
    star-wars.co.nz
    A new Star Wars movie is always accompanied by a heap of merchandising and collecting that stuff is getting more popular. This is the site for Kiwi collectors.
    :)

    The other links they give are:

    There's also a good little cartoon picture I'll try and scan over the weekend. :)

    I know, but it had only just started. It looked like it was going to be a busy one, but I managed to finish off almost everything - just waiting for an email reply before I can finish off the last bit of "urgent" work. :)


    OUCH!! There's a rather big spoiler HERE - if it hasn't been taken down yet. :)
