OK, so I've kicked it into overdrive on trying to make this happen for you guys, but here's the problem:
Every place I've been to only has 6 of the 12 tickets in their ticket roll (they're all $2 each). That seems to be standard. And these things are all attached, and I've only found ONE place so far that is willing to let me pick and choose which tickets I want (and detach them out of the middle of other tickets). All the rest of the places say you have to take the next available ticket(s), and can't specifically select which ones you want. Problem is, the sets of 6 tickets that all stores have, are completely random, so it's not like I can find two separate sets of 6 at two separate stores and just add them together to make a complete set, unfortunately. So this is really quite the tricky proposition here. At this point, I'm just trying to put together one complete set for myself, to see how feasible (and easy/difficult) this will be to do for others.
So one thing you'd all have to live with if I'm able to make this work, is that some of your tickets may be single (detached), and some may come in strips of 2 to 6 (attached). I assume that's cool with everyone? Can't get 12 in a row, all attached. Best you'll get is 6 attached, and the other 6 randomly attached or not.
Also, according to everyone I've spoken to, there's no way of verifying winning tickets without actually scratching them off. So that's up to you folks if you want them scratched, or not. There aren't any "readers" that I'm aware of to let you know the result without scratching off the ticket to see your numbers.
Finally, regarding the "coins"/scratchers... Yes, there is a set of 6 of them, and they cost $1 each. But they're being put out in sets of two, with the first two of Luke and Leia currently available (early May), the next two becoming available in Mid-May, and the last two becoming available in late May. Don't recall the last four coins, but I'll double check that.
So far, I think Adam's the only person that's requested the coins, so I picked up the first two for him, but that's it so far.
So here's the request list at this point. Please chime in and let me know if things still stand, or if you got a hookup from someone else in Cali, or if you want to change your order (add the "coins"?), or whatever...
Adam - Set of 12 tickets, plus set of 6 coins/medallions ($30)
Dave - Set of 12 tickets, plus set of 6 coins/medallions ($30)
Sharon - Set of 12 tickets ($24)
Jim - Set of 12 tickets ($24)
But like I said, putting together a complete set of the 12 is going to be tricky business. Basically, I'm going to have to find some more stores willing to let me pick and choose which tickets I actually need. If I can't do that, I'm essentially going to be screwed on this (unless you guys want a few duplicates, at $2 a pop).
