I certainly hope that the event later on will be carried out in an orderly manner. Just like 2yrs ago at the CW midnight madness launch at Forum TRU.

just back from the event. Crowd not as OG had hoped ... more vouchers than there were people in the queue. They even gave the vouchers to my 4 & 5 year old nephew & niece heh heh.

It was funny to see scalpers rushing in to scoop up the entire peg of Fetts & clones with a smug look on their face - only to see the OG staff refill them in a few minutes :lol: :lol: :lol:

When I left, there were still lots of Fetts, phase 2 clones, shock troopers, 501st, snowtroopers & Viszlas on the shelf.


ps. the freebie Fett is awesome!

Early in the morning...
Image

A quick walkthrough before the store opens...
ImageImageImageImage

R2-D2 and members of the 501st Legion arrive...
ImageImageImageImage

Everyone in the line had the chance of winning one of two FX Lightsabers in the Lucky Draw conducted later in the morning.
ImageImageImage

Meet some of the enthusiastic OG staff who had to stay late on Friday night to prepare for this event, and still appeared bright and cheerful when they had to arrive early on Saturday....
ImageImage

The early birds streaming in when the door opened at 8am... Do you see yourself in the photos? :)
ImageImageImageImage.
ImageImageImageImage.
ImageImageImage

With ample stock, there was no need to rush-and-grab...
ImageImageImage.
ImageImageImage

Troopers are keen to shop too :)
ImageImage

Among the emcee-led quiz activities throughout the morning, one of the biggest prizes was the Republic Gunship which went to this young fan. Congrats! :)
Image
Congratulations as well to the Lucky Draw winners and those who managed to grab the limited quantities of AT-AT and Lightsabers during the hourly special buys.

Other than shopping and prizes, fans young and old met and had photos taken with R2-D2 and the 501st Legion...
ImageImage

Thank you, Hasbro and OG, for organising this Toy Launch.
Hope everyone, fans and staff alike, enjoyed yourselves.
Starwars.sg, R2-D2 and the 501st Legion look forward to meeting you in future events
:)

those expecting frustrations and disappointments.........no more......everyone will be able to go home with wat they want......

As per my review on the cloud car, please note that all vehicles are available at general retail, and not restricted to OG Orchard Point.

For the Saga Legends and Clone Wars figures, the retailing price remains at SGD$18.90.
