MIDNIGHT LAUNCH OF Star Wars: The Old Republic

Best Buy - South Austin, TX
4970 Us Hwy. 290 W South Town Square
Austin, TX 78735

Time: 10PM-???

It’s all happening at the Best Buy South Austin, from 10pm or so on Monday the 19th. We’re keeping the store open past midnight so that fans can pick up their games right when the store opens and get them signed by developers who’ll be on hand. Where the 501st are helping us – and we hope the Rebel Legion can too – is in the pre-midnight period, where we’ll be having fun with the people in the crowd, giving out prizes, and having people pose for photos.

We’ve worked a lot with the 501st this year and probably had a few Rebel Legion members mixed in there that I just didn’t know about. J We’re very aware of your requirements in terms of changing areas and so on, and we’re ready to help on that score. There will be a changing area at the Best Buy store, we’ll make sure your team is kept hydrated and we’ll even try to get parking sorted if we can!

If you’re interested in helping us out, we’re basically looking for as many people as you can field. We’re more interested in ‘non-name’ costumes – ie, background players. In the case of the 501st that means Stormtroopers and other armored characters. In the case of the Rebel Legion we’d obviously hope to see some ‘generic’ Jedi Knights, some Troopers of some kind, and maybe some pilots? Whatever you can provide will be great. We’ve just been told by Lucas in the past to stay away from ‘name characters’ – ie Luke, Han, Leia in distinctive costumes.

Anyway, I know it’s short notice but we’d love to get your help. If I can provide any more details please don’t hesitate to ask. Feel free to call my number below (512-739-4945) if that makes it easier.
