OK maybe everyone doesn't know but nov. 8th is the scheduled release date for RotS. I think we should start planning now for it so that we can hopfully do something huge. I know it's early but if we start now we can shop around for openings and all that. i know my Toys r us wants to do something however they are limited by what they can do. i know they won't be able to midnight realease it for actually quite stupid reasons. However that leaves me hopefully able to travel to somewhere for a really big release party. I really want to make an awesome event out of this.

Here Nashville we will be doing a lot of trooping including the video store (Movie Gallery) where I work. Here is what I am planning for that.



-We will troop the Friday and/or Saturday after the DVD comes out, rather than on the Tuesday it is actually released.

-We may take out an ad in the paper to promote the event using the store's advertising budget.

-We will print up a bunch of half-page fliers to insert into all Star Wars DVD's (not just ROTS) about 1 month prior to the event so people know about it.

-We will put full page fliers up in the store to promote it.

-We will pull existing SW DVD's and videos off the shelf a week or more before ROTS is released, and we will only put out some copies of ROTS on Nov 8th. This will ensure that we have Star Wars movies available to rent when we are actually trooping the event.

-We may rent/bring some tables to setup at the event to promote our group.

-The store is located in a major intersection with several resteraunts, fast food joints, and grocery stores within walking distance. Plenty of places to send "patrols."



I'm sure we will also be trooping places like Media Play and Best Buy.

Pretty safe to assume that the Best Buy up in Plano will be the only one doing a "Midnite Madness" type of thing.


I was there for the Classic Trilogy DVD release.  Lots of 501st were there.  Need more Jedi this time!

There were almost as many Jedi as 501st at the OT release there, as I recall. I was on the news, which is part of why I'm no longer costuming...

I know that mostly Best Buy at Plano is the one that has the midnight madness...


However....with new options that face us... we may do another store.   We are still in talks with a few places to see where we will end up.  Smile   But we WILL do a store event of some sorts.  Smile
