Another quick post. About a week ago, saw this ad for the new Star Wars toys:
Upon seeing it, I immediately wanted to partake in the Star Wars excitement as part of the bonus of being back home in the States. What I wanted most was the free shirt for attending the festivities, much like in high school and college when we got shirts to prove we were actually at fill-in-the-blank concert. So, at 11:30pm on Thursday night, I hopped into the Camry and drove 4.8 miles to the closest Toys R Us.
|That's mine dammit!!!|
|And yet more Porgs|
|Another new character!!!|
|This guy looks bad-ass, much tougher than those imperial guards from ROTJ|
|Relative to the Sarlacc pit?|
|New Lego set 1|
|New Lego set 2|
|New Lego set 3|
|New Lego set 4|
Worse yet, I still didn't know where the free shirts and posters were. I asked an employee about the shirts, and to my chagrin, he told me that they had not gotten the shirts. My first impression was that the whole campaign had been a big lie, a false advertisement to get us into the door. After a pause, the employee then told me to go to the Service Desk and have them take my name and number so I could be called when the shirts arrive. I trudged my way over to the Service Desk, gave them my name and number and grabbed a poster, which they did have, and left the store.
|The poster is pretty cool I admit.|
