Today I stopped by one BK for lunch and Happy Meal toys ... they had the watches but claim not to have gotten the Super-D characters yet. Of course they still had about a five-foot-wide sign depicting them. ::)

False advertising!!

Today I picked up Super D Chewie and 2 Watches (Darth Maul/Obi Wan, and Luke/Stormtrooper). I asked for Vader Super D, but they said they didn't have it. They did have Obi Wan, Stormtrooper, Chewie, and the Snowspeeder. I was going to buy Obi Wan but they wouldn't let me buy the toy by itself, and since I had already eaten, I let it go.

What a ******* joke, one of the guys at work and myself head out to get a few kids meals. Signs all over the place for SW toys and we get our orders and WTF! Wallace & Gromit!

They did not get the SW toys in yet so we said ah no thanks and left!  >:(

I was able to get all of week one plus Vader thanks to a friendly employee today.  The watches don't interest me, but I love the little Super D guys.

I just bought 3 kid's meals to get 3 toys. I don't even eat fast food anymore, nor could I find anyone to give it to; had to throw it away. >:( What's more, I had to mooch the money cos I'm broke. :-\ God... Got the first 3 characters (I don't want the ships); no Vader.

You can't buy the toys themselves?

Not at this BK. I think I'll try another one that I bought some of the previous 31 at. If I remember right, they sold me toys without meals. Wish I'd remembered that tonight....

Picked up the first four today.  Also snagged the two available watches - Ep I and IV.  The tins are really quite nice, the watches are absolute crap.  My daughter likes hers though. 

Toys are cool, but I had to pay $2 for the second pair.  Yeesh, I can hardly wait for the employees to get lazier. No Vader for me yet. 

OH and there was an obnoxious woman there berating the employee because she couldn't get either the Vader super-D or the Vader watch ::)  Classy adult reaming out a 16 year old girl that's never seen a Star Wars movie.  Nice, real nice.

The BK by my place has been wonderful for both promo's, surprising to hear so many horror stories. :-\

Picked up all 4 of week 1 toys (plus Vader), and 2 watches (ANH & E1). In addition to the toys & watches, there are 6 different lenticular gift cards, 1 for each movie.

I was able to use the gift cards to pay for the promo's, and did not have to purchase any food.

Apparently some of the older stuff is resurfacing too.

My nearest Burger King has now put up a sign saying that due to high demand and limited quantities, they will only sell 80 watches per day.  :-\

I stopped into BK today and grabbed lunch and was able to grab all of week 1's toys - Stormtrooper, Snowspeeder, Obi-Wan & Chewie.  No Vader.

The lady at the counter was quite friendly, but it wasn't easy to bite my tongue when she called me a Trekkie.   >:(  ;)

Success on Wave 1. And then today, another BK here actually had the second wave of toys already, so I'm all caught up thru week 2, even including Vader. W00t!

Like last time around, that particular BK is the best I've found for the Super-D toys. They just have a big box you can root around in (instead of trying to describe which ones you're looking for) and in fact the employee volunteered to look in the back for the other two characters they had that weren't in the box (Anakin and Vader).

You should have bitten her tongue.
