Now I gotta admit this is pretty cool. Darth Chuck notified JediTempleArchives.com about this cool new opening crawl belt that was installed at his local Target store advertising Force Friday. The big question is where is Steve Sansweet going to get a Target register for Rancho Obi-Wan?

Please sound off on the subject in our comments section, we'd love to hear any and all feedback regarding this upcoming event.

If you could only have one, which would you choose?
