    Aero on Burbank has them.

    The Lottery website has a list of participating retailers. The one I went to had the coints taped to the inside of the lottery ticket case.

    That's a trip, no 7-11's in Burbank are selling them. Just 3 locations.

    Have found Luke, Leia, R2, and Yoda so far. They are pretty cool.

    The store I went to last week was great. I thought you had to buy a $2 Scratcher to get one coin (i.e. a total of $3 per coin with ticket, for a grand total of $18 for the set ), but he said they were just $1 each, with no other items necessary to buy. I got the first four (he said the last two, Vader and Threepio, are due out this week), and I said, heck, give me a scratcher, too. His answer? We're out of them. Maybe that's why he sold them the way he did. Mine were a little dinged up, too, even inside the plastic cases.

    On the way out of town to go camping this weekend, we popped into a deli/market that I had never been to before at White Oak and Vanowen and what do you know? They have the coins. I got Leia, Luke, R2, and Yoda all for a buck each no other purchase required. Guess I'll have to revisit that place frequently from now on. Great Italian sub too!

    A friend at work pick me up a R2 and Yoda today, so I just Vadern and 3PO are left.

    BTW what are these things selling on e-bay for? Curious how much collectors are getting the shaft.

    Looks like they are going for around 4-5 bucks a piece.

    I didn't have to buy any lottery tickets, I just paid a buck each for the coins. After I bought the Darth Vader coin, the next day a guy told me they made a mistake and made a small amount of the DV coins in gold. I said mine is gold and he didn't believe me. When he saw it he offered me 40 bux, so I figured it might be a big deal so I hung on to it. Has anyone heard about this? I went down the next day to get more and the guy at the store said the vendor came in and pulled all of the gold DV coins and replaced them with silver. WOOT! for once I got lucky.
