Went to Wally World today and saw posters everywhere for some sort of Episode III promotion on April 2nd & 3rd (or was it 1st & 2nd...or 3rd & 4th...hmm.) Anyway, does anyone have any idea what this is exactlly? (Or if it may include Lego, for that matter.)

I assumed it was just a flyer saying "hey, we're going to have star wars stuff on these days some come here and buy stuff, because we bet you didn't know that's when the stuff comes out!"

Well, I haven't seen any signs at Target, TRU or whoever else sells SW stuff, so I think Wal-mart is trying to gain something off of the general public's lack of release date awareness.

Hopefully with this new SW Merch they'll begin selling SW Lego again. This certain Wal-Mart was my exclusive Lego source up until about a year ago when they started stocking their shelves with only Bionicle.

There was a big thing a while ago about Wal-mart only selling basic figures, not deluxe stuff, but that's only hasbro related. As far as Lego, I have no idea.

Yeah, I saw that at my Wal*Mart, too. Unfortunately, I may be out-of-town that weekend, so I will probably miss it. Evil or Very Mad Keep me posted if anyone finds out more.

I went to Wally World today and picked up CW Vol. 1 for 14.99 and a few 3-packs of CW Hasbro figs. Gotta love it! Woot!

A heads up for anyone else who's planning on getting Clone Wars today, Circuit City has it for $11 and Best Buy for $12.

Just returned from Wal-Mart with a full report on the promotion. Very Happy Went into the store and saw that all of the posters and such were still up, so I headed to the toy department. On my way I saw a Darth Vader display where you could stand behind it, talking into it, and it would change your voice to be like Vader's. Neat, didn't try it though. Razz Anyway, arrived at the toy department to find a whole half-isle dedicated to RoTS. They had 3 types of action figures, puzzles, calendars, mini action figures, posters, 12" figures, and of course all of the new Lego RoTS sets! Finally, it's great to see my Wal-Mart with Lego in stock again. But sadly, no clone building event or anything of the sort. Sad So I picked up the Clone Scout Walker, which I'm putting together as I type this. Would have got more, but I've already spent too much on my PSP. Razz

Tata.

Well, I went to Wal*Mart on Saturday, and those jerks didn't even have the friggin' tent that was promised on the website. So much for that list I copied and pasted all over the place.

They barely even had an event going on. Just a table where you could play with the Hasbro lightsabers and put together part of a small Darth Vader LEGO mosaic. Whoopee. Confused

Was it raining where you were, Collin? I know at my Wal*Mart they had to close the tent up early because we had such strong winds and thunderstorms here. Embarassed You weren't missing much, though– it was the same merchandise and then samples of stuff like the cereal, fruit snacks, a small LEGO table to play with, etc.

That's the thing. It was a beautiful day outside! One of the few times the past couple of months where we've had practically a whole weekend of beautiful sunny weather.
