    Hey my fellow Northern Peeps!

    Rebel Legion are having a 'small';)soiree thing in costume for a 'few select friends' (oh - did I mention the thousands of Geordies too?) at Newcastle HMV on the Saturday 16th Sep to promote the release of the Star Wars double DVDs.

    As Fan Force and Rebel Legion have worked together very well in the past, I would love for some of you guys to join us for a fun daytime event in the Toon! [face_dancing]

    We'll be collecting for Starlight www.starlight.org.uk , so if you are expert at rattling a collecting tin and have a smiley disposition - then you may just get the gig! :*

    If you would like to join us as costumers or helpers/crew, then please PM me asap directly for further details if you're interested.

    HMV Newcastle, 56 Northumberland Street, Newcastle

    they do, but Saturday is the expected main sales day and where we can most maximise activity.

    A Monday lunch time versus a Saturday in Newcastle is waaaaaaaaaaaay different....and I know which one will rock the most. [face_dancing]

    Help us Obi Wan - you're our only hope. :_|

    PM me the details and I'll see if I can make this Jace. God knows my costume could do with dusting off.

    I am looking into coming to this :D Won't promise 'owt, but checking prices etc. Would come Sat morn, when u are already in, and go home Sunday. Anyone up for something Sat night if I did come?

    And the DVDs are out Monday, the Star Wars Lego II game is out Friday, so Saturday covers both ;)

    I'm working on that Sat, so I guess I'll finish @ 5pm (I don't usually work on Sat, but for time and a half and a day in lieu I'm not going to complain!)

    I'll try and catch you in my lunch hour, or if you're planning to do something afterwards, I could probably make it.

    Hey guys :)

    I might actually be able to attend in costume as a Jedi :D! I'll be cheating a little (yes Im using a karate Gi, but only for the inner tunic [face_worried] ) Working on an outer tunic, obi and tabbarbs as we speak. I don't have a proper Jedi belt or robe as this is a practice one for GMEX in November :( I'll see what I can knock together, unless anyone has a spare belt? If not thats fine, I'll just have to see how it all comes together. If its crap I'll just crew and I'll bring my force FX incase anyone is saberless on the day :)
