ermm..... There were lots of the "realistic" styling stuff too... a rack full of the Legacy Collection figures, along with the new big Millennium Falcon
Also, a few surprise items that we were not aware would be at the launch, including both the Rebel Pilots Evolution Packs, Imperial/Clone pilot Evolution Pack, Hoth Recon Patrol, Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol... :)

And then there were also the Mighty Muggs, Galactic Heroes... :wink:

The image is blur.. intentionally so :wink:
Cos the folks are shy.... They were actually at Forum Shopping Mall much earlier, but only started forming the queue after we persuaded someont to be first in line and start things going. We are a shy people :)
Image

TRU closed its doors at 9pm, so that they could start preparing for the midnight launch. Here's what the shelves were like BEFORE the good stuff were displayed.
ImageImageImage

Cute LEGO Captain Rex joined his full-sized buddies in guarding the store front
Image

The 501st Legion were busy posing for photo-opportunities outside the mall, and on stage
ImageImageImage

Several lucky fans walked away with the promotional Captain Rex and Celebration Japan R2-D2 in the Lucky Draw sponsored by Hasbro in appreciation of the fans who turned up for the event.
Image

Almost midnight, the shelves are fully stocked and the troopers pose for a group shot in front of the store
ImageImage

And the moment everyone has been waiting for...
Image

Enter the first batch of customers...
ImageImage

It's time to Buy! Buy! Buy! but it is all nice and civil (as it should be!) Fans buying action figures... Life-sized action figures buying action figures.... :P
ImageImageImage

Like I said, Life-sized action figures love their toys too .... :P
Image

so do Jedi...
Image

Among the last of the customers paying for their purchases...
ImageImage
Again, that was a nice blur last pic... which I think our friend would appreciate :wink:

It's late (early?) now.... Tired mesa is...
End my post now, I shall...
*waves hand* You shall enjoy these pics for now * :P
zzzzzzzzzz......

"after" the setting up was complete, that is :P

Kudos to the folks of Toys "R" Us, HASBRO, LEGO, Forum the Shopping Mall... for making the Midnight Launch possible :D

The 501st Legion, Jedi, and others who turned up in Star Wars garb... you really helped boost the Star Wars atmosphere :D

And of course, Kudos to all of you who turned up and made the event a success! :D
