I went to the DC premere of AOTC. No, I'm not gonna ruin it.
I just gonna talk about what happened today.

I arrived at the Embassy of Naboo (Four Seasons Hotel) to take part in the brunch sponsed by the FLOC (For Love Of Children) charity. As I entered, first we were given our movie tickets, a $3 gift cardto Starbucks, and a bottle of body lotion. I thought, "This is pretty cool." I then went to the lobby area. STAR WARS GALORE! There was a silent auction for a bunch of Star Wars items, including a GBA w/ Jedi Power Battles, autoraphed posters by Dave Dorman, an R2-D2 cooler, lunchboxes, and Lego sets. A few minutes later, a bunch of volunters showed up dressed as Star Wars characters. Brunch was called, and as me and my family went to our table, EACH seat had a FLOC/AOTC program and the Dark Forces Trilogy on audio CD. My aunt didn't come with us, so before we left the brunch I took her DF CD's. Then I got more Starbucks Gift cards and a shuttle took us to the theater. There we attended a prescreening party, where I took a carboard Yoda standup. Then we went inside the movie, where each seat had a goodie bag. We left with 3 bags.

Here's what's in each bag:
AOTC Poster
POJ Figure
trial packs of Orbit gum
SW ring
bookmark
Jedi Quest comic
AOTC postcard
Jedi Quest novel
SW toys poscard book
gold star stickers
AOTC CCG starter set

We got 2 Eeth Koths and a Snaggletooth
We also got 2 Darth Vader, 1 C-3P0,and 1 R2-D2 rings

MAN DID I HAVE A LOAD OF STAR WARS JUNK WHEN I GOT HOME!

As soon as the pictures are developed, I'll post them online.

Very cool! Sounds like a really neat time. I wonder how all that stuff gets paid for, is it donated to the charity or does it come out of the price tag or what?

Anyway, congrats on the get!

I'm envious! Events are always good for "goodie bags," but a Star Wars goodie bag would be the best bag of all.
