NOTES

SYNOPSIS
Luke Skywalker challenged the stormtroopers of a distant galaxy on a daring mission—where a force of life became the power of death!

Farm chores could sure be dull, and Luke Skywalker was bored beyond belief. He yearned for adventures out among the stars—adventures that would take him beyond the furthest galaxies to distant and alien worlds.

But Luke got more than he bargained for when he intercepted a cryptic message from a beautiful princess held captive by a dark and powerful warlord. Luke didn't know who she was, but he knew he had to save her—and soon, because time was running out.

Armed only with courage and with the light saber that had been his father's, Luke was catapulted into the middle of the most savage space war ever...and he was headed straight for a desperate encounter on the enemy battle station known as the Death Star!

Soon to be a Spectacular Motion Picture! From Twentieth-Century Fox!

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practise of driving around all the nearby store stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everythign online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie/video game's release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more collecting for me.
