    Just found Karen Traviss' novelisation is now availabe for general release as of today at most retailers in Australia. Don't know what the NZ release date was going to be. Karen has said that it should be more adult than the cartoon will be.

    Now on to waiting for the next installment from our own Karen Miller called Wild Space and the Dark Horse comics.

    Galaxy books here in OZ usually get the US releases. That's your best bet on getting a copy down here within a reasonable timeframe.

    otherwise you'll end up waiting a few months.

    But I want to read it first :(

    I'll call down at Villiage this arvo Nick and see what the story is for the film/ I still want to go in costume even if my costume will be OT.

    Ahsoka look cool!

    I actually got my copy at Dymocks, although Borders did not have it when I stuck my head in there this afternoon.

    In regards to the movie, it's listed for release on August 14 at Hoyts so we should be getting it at the right time.

    That's you guys though, I'm talking about us in Tassie. I spoke to the people at the cinema here a week ago and they said they may hold off Clone Wars until September but they're not sure

    I forget that it's sometimes like you're in another country down there. Normally for getting the books I'd recommend Amazon but I've been burnt by the recently over books.

    As to the film release, I grew up in country NSW so I feel your pain.

    Snapped this today when I was at the cinema, looks like we are getting it!

    Nick, would it be too bad to suggest going to see it that night? I won't have times until next Tuesday though

    What's definite is they will have the print on that date, and I'm about 80% sure they'll be showing it on the 14th.

    How are you for going at night, Nick? Alison wants to go as Asajj

    I'm asking you if you're fine to go see it at night, as it doesn't look at this stage as if there's going to be a midnight.

    Hopefully I'm wrong and there will be [face_praying]

    I have no idea. I can't plan that far in advance at this point.

    a lot of it will depend on where I am.

    on a side note does anyone here collect the hasbro toys?

    there is a giveaway for Australian residents for the new Cptn Rex toy

    Still no session times Nick at villiage, but how are you with going at night? Bring someone if you like, or two or three people so we're a nice big party. Alison's going to be Asajj and we got her a skullcap last week.

    I'll have to post pictures of us, including me with Artoo!

    Just a reminder that all discussion that is directly and only about the new Clone Wars movie and series should be done in the Live Action, Clone Wars, and Classics (LACWAC) forum. Discussing specific characters, and the effect the movie has on existing films and books can be done in appropriate existing threads in the movie and expanded universe forums, but discussion that is solely about the film and series should be done exclusively in the LACWAC forum.

    In addition, please be mindful that many of the users would like to avoid spoilers for the movie and series. As such, please make yourself familiar with the spoiler policies of the various forums you visit ... both if you are going to post spoilers, and if you want to avoid them.


    The LACWAC forum can be found here.v ;)

    Sorry to be the big meanie.
