    Episode III Souvenir Movie Guide

    Has anyone pre-ordered the "Official" Episode III Souvenir Movie Guide? Apparently it's only available online from the publisher for $9.95 + S&H. The Guide is due to ship April 18.

    I went ahead and ordered one since I have the other movie souvenir guides. My Star Wars (ANH) one isn't quite the same as the one sold in theatres back in '77 but it's close enough. No guide was published for Episode II.

    I was wondering how high the shipping & handling would be, but it was only $3 for US priority mail.

    I had been thinking about it. I don't have any other guides, but I'm kinda going all out for EIII. It's the last time (at least for me, I'm out after this )

    I was going to wait until people got them and see if they thought it was worth it. I'm sure there will be plenty of them printed.

    I got the one for E1 and was salty that they didn't do E2 (but I did buy the C2 souveneir book, that had some cool stuff in it).

    I do plan on getting the new one but I figured I would wait until they actually start shipping before I order one.

    I ordered one a month or two back. The only one that I remember getting at the theater itself was for ROTJ in '83. Still have it.

    I can't remember if local theatres had the program guides for sale or if I just bought them at a bookstore. I didn't get the ESB one until several years later. I spied it hanging on the wall of a comic shop in Kentucky or Tennessee during a family vacation so I bought it.

    I picked this up at C lll...

    It's a good program, very thourough...one warning though....if you don't want some key visual moments in the movie spoiled for you stop reading when you get to the "Story" section. Certain key moments and some characters fates are vividly pictured, some with "progressive" pictures for those key moments. It's one thing to KNOW what happens (especially if you've haunted the spoiler boards or read the book/comic) but quite another to have it visually spelled out before you see it....be forewarned!

    My copy arrived in the mail yesterday in horrible condition. I fired off an email to the company this morning complaining about the condition (C6 at best) and requesting a replacement.

    It came wrapped in plastic. No cardboard support or anything.

    Very disappointing.

    But I do like the content of the guide. Lot of pix (spoilers, too!) I hadn't seen before.

    Dang, I was afraid this would happen. When I first heard they were publishing a ROTS theatre program I was really hoping on a newstand release so I could pick out a mint copy.

    For $10 you'd think they'd at least ship them in a protective bubble mailer with support.

    It was $12, including shipping, and yeah, you'd think.

    I haven't heard back from IDG or Gentle Giant yet. I bought one of the exclusive sandtrooper busts at C3. When I went to put it together Monday night, I found the trigger finger on the spare arm was broken. I've contacted GG about a replacement arm.

    Re: Episode III Souvenir Movie Guide

    Thanks for the warning about the pictures. Like with the comic adaptation, I'll just put it aside and not look at it until after I see the movie.

    Or should I say IF I get it. I got an e-mail over 2 weeks ago saying that the mag would be shipping on April 18th, but I still have not received it yet. Is anyone else still waiting on theirs? If mine doesn't come in soon, I think I might call idg up to see what's going on, cuz they charged my credit card for it a while ago.
