    That is one thing I do plan on buying. I can't wait to see if it's more difficult. I'm hoping it is, and that they've gone beyond having the answer to everything be Luke or 3.

    I want to get the visual dictionary. We may have to go to Wally World. I don't care if there are spoilers in it. Probably nothing I don't already know.

    Don't forget "Wedge" or "R2".
    Altho at the last Gaming Night we had 3 (count 'em three) questions about General Rieekan.

    You mean Carlist Rieeken?

    :p

    I've been reading way too many Star Wars books.

    Ok, we (501st) plan on getting to TRU around 11:15. If any of you get there after that and don't see us outside, manually open the front doors and enter the foyer thingy. Then go to the exit door and knock on it with your keys until someone lets you in. That is directly from the manager of TRU. We will be able to puruse and pick out stuff we want to buy and put it in the break room until after Midnight when we can actually pay for it. The event will officially be from 12am to 2am and we will need to be suited up and ready by 12. If you have any questions I didn't answer here, too bad :) I'm just kidding. Please ask and I'll do my best to confuse the crap outta ya :) Again, just kidding.

    Lucky Dawgs . .
    The manager of the Chatt Store won't let us in early . . .
    We will have to get our scavengers ready to strike and do a basket dump and meet 4 or 5 rows away from the madness. . .

    Good Luck!

    That's a great idea, Todd! I never even thought of that.

    The only downside is the possibility of damaging the packaging. You know how some of us collectors can be when it comes to bent cardboard.

    This is true - but that's our only hope at this point since we have been told - NO WAY - on Early Looks Or Grabs...
    We asked if we could just LOOK and he said "Naw..."

    Wassup with that. . . since we are coming in costume.

    Oh well -

    Sounds like the Chattanooga store manager has a stick up his butt. He has to realize that you have to give folks some incentive to do things like this, especially since they're doing it for free.

    Tim's right. Some people will come to TRU just to see people in costumes. Without ya'll, some folks might just go to WM.

    over one million billion trillion of these little worthless plastic figures have been made. If you can't find one in one store then it will be at the next or you can buy it in a few months for half or less on e-bay. If I see any of you nerds other then us lesser nerds in costume pushing or shoving for a toy....your going to get a blaster whacked across your head.

    12-2am. Whoo, I'm gonna be one pissy Sith in the morning! :p But I think we will have two extra Jedi accompanying us to TRU.

    The more toys we can take from the public, my dear...

    Darth Tater! I love it! I have to have one.

    I want the books and the soundtrack. I loved reading the book while listening to the soundtrack last time. What a rush!

    I'll probably by a five or six figures, but thats about it. The moolah is kinda short right now.

    In that case, J, you may want to know that Wallyworld has them on sale right now.

    Is it too late to say that I will be there in costume tomorrow night? Looking forward to it. Sorry I didn't chime in with a yay or nay sooner, but there was always the chance I would end up in LR this weekend.

    See y'all tomorrow night! :D

    Is everyone pumped about tonight?

    Man, I wish I had time to catch a nap today. I'll have coffee in my flask tonight instead of the usual.
