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

That's what my cab driver called me at C3 :D  I gently explained to her that I understood her confusion but she'd better be careful as some of the more militant fans might not take her mistake so kindly. 

I forgot to mention I have an extra series 1 Vader to trade for the second Vader if anyone's interested.  It's a little early to panic about not finding one, but at least I have something decent to trade.

Why the hell I sucked myself back into this madness I have no idea but I went to both BK's here in Hillbilly country and they stated that I can't pick and choose who I want.  I got whoever was in the rolled up bag, even though I purchased two extra and the girl understood the reason why.  I wasn't at all pleased with that but lucked out and got Mace, Snowspeeder and Queen Amidala.  Then, I bought two gift cards (and made them give me two different ones) and went to the other BK (getting the same song and dance about not being able to hand pick what I needed) and ended up scoring Chewbacca.  So....I assume I missed week one figures even though this promo started on Monday.  I did get two cool gift cards (Luke and Maul) and need to go back and get Leia and Han. 

All in all, now that I have once again started this crazy collecting cycle, I do like the figures.  I'll have to contact the network back in the U.P. and see what they can do for me.  Nothing moves that fast up there!! ;)

I can help if you like Beth.  You're clearly into week two stuff.

Got the first 8, no luck on Vader yet. Ithought i got lucky with Vader but it ended up being the old one.

We had lunch on Monday at one of the local Burger Kings, asked if they had the SW toys in, the stupid woman tells me yes, then proceeds to give me the old toys.  On Wednesday, I called several BK locations, and the only ones that had any toys in said they had the old ones.

Thursday, my husband called the same one where we ate on Monday, and the woman told him they had the new toys in, but weren't allowed to open the boxes until they got rid of all the old ones.

I'll be calling the BK HQ in Miami Friday morning to complain. This is a national campaign. They should have to let you have new toys.

During the first promotion, one BK near me eventually sold bundles that included one of each toy. I'm hoping they do the same again because I refuse to shovel that much crap into my body again.

Jeez, I just got the week 1 stuff. I had to go to two different ones to get them, and I didn't get Vader.
I doubt I'll pull my hair out over finding this one. Why they made it a chase again is beyond me.

I am assuiming, if I go by the little booklet that is in with each figure, that  the columns are NOT the order of the weeks.  Jill picked me up Obi-Wan and a Stormtrooper in Marquette, MI so I am stumped as to what I need.  I might have missed R2D2 but I have the Esky crew working on that.  My niece called and said she got me a Vader so I owe her big time.  I guess that it must be easier (in larger cities) to just pre-bag the toys so maybe I was out of line in my rant yesterday.  I know Ann Arbor, MI will let you pick what you need and it's a helluva lot bigger than Chilli but I guess it's per franchise. 

I can help if you like Beth. You're clearly into week two stuff.

Anyhow.......I think I'll be able to get the figures I want (no Emperor or ships for me) so I should be ok but thank you!!!!!!! :D


Now, onto the gift cards.  I only had to put $5.00 on the two I got but my daughter said she had to put $10.00 on hers.  According to BK's website, it IS $10.00 so I lucked out on that as I want all 6 promo cards and I sure don't need $60.00 worth of BK food!!!  (Well, maybe dessert ;)).

Beth, Week 1 is:

Chewbacca Galactic Spinner
Obi-Wan Kenobi Jedi Wisdom
Snowspeeder Cosmic Cruiser
Stormtrooper Shadow Caster
Darth Vader Breathing Sounds

The second week consists of:

Anakin Skywalker Galactic Spinner
Mace Windu Jedi Wisdom
Naboo Fighter Cosmic Cruiser
Queen Amidala Shadow Caster
Darth Vader Breathing Sounds

During the first promotion, one BK near me eventually sold bundles that included one of each toy. I'm hoping they do the same again because I refuse to shovel that much crap into my body again.

Actually, the BKs near me are only selling them separately (well, outside of the kids meals). They aren't doing the "Adult Value Meal" things this time.

I wasn't going to get the watches, but when I saw them in those tins, I had to get them.

I'm a sucker like that.  :-\
