Me. And most of my friends, who by May 4th of 1999, had each figure, sometimes in multiples. What kept you away?
I copied this from the News here at SSG:
I don't know if that's "true-fan" status. I wore a costume to TPM's opening day, not for toys. And leaving your family to sleep in a car? Kinda sad. I wonder if "the experience" is not so great anymore, as far a SW collecting goes...At a Toys R Us in Los Angeles, about 100 fans were lined up by midnight to grab their ``Star Wars'' products first thing Tuesday.
Carla DellaGatta, 26, was a little alarmed to be one of the few people in costume for the event - especially since it was 57 degrees and she was wearing a custom-made Princess Leia ``slave girl'' bikini from ``Return of the Jedi.'' Luckily, she had a black topcoat.
Ivan Munguia, 30, was first in line, waiting with his mother-in-law, brother-in-law, his mother and his wife - who was sleeping in the car.
