        Well, not EVERY WM was doing that. Went to the one in Old Bridge, NJ (which is normally opened until midnight). Got there at 11:45, and not only would they not let me in (even though the store was technically still opened), but I was told they weren't staying open for this event - in fact, it didn't seem like anyone even KNEW about it (maybe they need to read their own store's ads!). Considering the type of people who work/run that WM, I guess I'm not surprised. I'll just head over there in the morning.

        ...I'll head to WalMart in about 6 months and it will be there too. Too much hype for this. It's just movies, folks. OLD ones too.

        What is that painting that WM is giving away? It's a painting (looks like Dorman, but I didn't check that closely) of Boba Fett riding what appears to be a Boga in a desert. Not sure what that image is from.

        It gets even better....I went to WM just a little while ago on my way to work, and they had NOTHING! No display, no posters, no Trilogy sets - NOTHING! I think my store completely missed the memo, or didn't bother to look at their own ads! I was hoping to pick up the LEGO SW blu-ray as well for my son, but I didn't even see that - gonna' have to go back later to see if they even have THAT!

        The painting is from a page in the bluray set. I had to ask for the set, it was behind the counter, then I had to get the manager to look in the back for the poster. Sheesh! The big cardboard AT-AT display is pretty cool, I am going to try to get me one.

        I loved seeing the AT-AT display at Wal-Mart, and the set-ups at Best Buy were also fantastic (Artoo and TIE Fighter).

        I got the Target set with free lithos, then in the evening while at Wal-Mart I bought the Lego DVD and got a free poster with it...asked for a 2nd poster for a friend and the worker didn't care, he gave me an extra.

        I didn't buy the Best Buy t-shirt but I did buy the trilogy posters for $5 each at Wal-Mart, not a bad deal. It will cost more to frame them.

      I always thought PVC was more durable than ABS since I've seen PVC pipe sit out in open sunlight for almost 20 years and not yellow or become brittle.
