    And with that grating Emperor voice, he'll be completely hoarse before the weekend is over. [face_laugh]

    Who's gonna be there in Vader garb to toss him down a hole? [face_shhh][face_wink]>

    And what is more obnoxious than a grating Emperor voice?

    A drunken, grating Emperor voice!

    He he. All I can think of is the Emperor stumbling around with a 40 of Kind Cobra. (No Colt 45 since Lando advertised for it.)

    I'd love to see the emperor drunk! That'd be hilarious!

    Oone of these days I want to be thin enough to fit into a clone trooper costume, or X-Wing pilot and not look like Porkins! I could do a Gamorean guard, though...

    Anyway, I'll be at the TRU as a jedi. With all the 501st in town for MSC we should have a good turnout.

    Chuck, see if the TRU folks will have any flyers. We could put them out at the con, and possibly Triple Play.

    We'll have to do a group pic at TRU.

    One week to go! How many SMTers do we have so far?

    I haven't decided on wearing Padme Senate or Battlesuit yet... probably senate as it'd be too chilly for battlesuit.
    I can't wait! :D

    I'll be there. I'm going to have to do a quick costume change. I've got a late panel. I may put some of it on at the hotel and then boogie out to the TRU and finish.

    TRU- That's where we were invited, and that's where we get to grab our stuff early for showing up in costume. Also, the 501st will be there with us, so it'll be big crowd of costumed SW characters.

    I'll actually be doing the makeup for the Toys R Us thing. And I'll be slicking the hair back, just in case anyone's wondering "What about the horns?!"

    And Kell, I'd actually like to see your Padme Wedding Gown. But your senate gown is gorgeous.

    The Toys R Us event looks like fun and I will be attending...Did you know they will have a Exclusive Toys R Us Holographic Yoda? I would also like to swing by a Target in the morning to pick up a exclusive Target Lava Darth Vader figure. What are the locations of your Targets and what is the closest one to the Convention?

    There's a Target right by Toys-R-Us and the Wal-Mart we'll most likely troop. I'm not sure if it is the closest Target, but probably the easiest one to get to since it's all interstate to get there. I hope everyone is ready to party your a** off!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, there's that one- which is easiest to get to from Nashville/1-40. It's in the same parking lot at the TRU we're hitting on Friday. There's also another up G'town Pkwy (south), one on Poplar at Colonial near Comics and Collectibles (go west on Poplar off I-240), one on Winchester and Hickory Hill (or is it Ridgeway..?) next to the Hickory Ridge Mall, and one in Southaven off of I-55 at Goodman Road- or you can just take Airways south from the hotel until you get to Goodman, then take a right and it'll be over the I-55 overpass. There's also a big Wal-Mart down there.

    Tim, don't forget the jedi-mullet!

    I've got it out and ready, as well as my Jedi costume that I'm loaning to Kevin.

    Looks like the exclusive Yoda figure is FREE as long as you buy $25.00 worth of Star Wars stuff.

    And considering all the stuff J and I plan on buying, that won't be a problem. [face_devil]

    Anybody wanna go see Sin City before the Toyfest? We were planning on making our way out that way for midnight madness and I might be able to convince my buddies to see the movie out there somewhere instead of here in MS.

    I know that a few of us will be busy getting into character beforehand on Friday night, Dale. Thanks for the invite, though. Tell your friends that you have to get your geek on with your peeps in Memphis.

    Robert and I will be there to take pictures and support the group.
    No costumes make Kelly and Robert very sad :(

    Hopefully, we can get something together soon.

    Has anyone mentioned eating afterwards???
