We update our earlier post with exciting news for both the fan and collector alike.

According to the SWCP club only the TRU store at the Centro Comercial Colombo in Lisboa [Lisbon] will host the exclusive launch of the The Clone Wars line of toys from both Hasbro and LEGO not on the early hours of Saturday, July 26, but one day before, July 25, 2008, starting at 7:00 pm GMT and ending exactly at midnight.

Although technically not a "Midnight Madness" in itself, the same promotions still apply and then some (with a slight twist from those at international TRUs). Let's see:

  • Holographic General Grievous will be given out (quantity not disclosed) to each client buying one of the Hasbro's The Clone Wars "Force Action" lightsabers (€39,99 or USD $63.33 ea.).
  • Mini TIE Fighter for buying LEGO over €50 ($79.21). Limited to 550 units.
  • LEGO The Clone Wars Minifig poster for anyone buying LEGO. Quantity of available posters not disclosed.

Also the newest Millennium Falcon (the BMF) will be specially presented and will cost €199,99 ($316.82). Other promotions are announced but not specified.

Members from the SWCP club will be in attendance to support the event.
Actualizamos o nosso artigo anterior com notícias excitantes tanto para o fã como o coleccionador.

De acordo com o clube SWCP apenas a loja TRU do Centro Comercial Colombo em Lisboa apresentará o lançamento exclusivo das linhas de brinquedos The Clone Wars (A Guerra dos Clones) da Hasbro e da LEGO não nas primeiras horas de Sábado dia 26 de Julho mas um dia antes a 25 de Julho, a começar às 19:00h e a terminar pelas 00:00h.

Embora tecnicamente não se trate de uma "Midnight Madness" as mesmas promoções ainda se aplicam, mas não só (com uma ligeira variante às dos TRU internacionais). Vejamos:

  • General Grievous Holográfico será dado (quantidade geral não divulgada) a cada cliente que compre um dos sabres de luz "Force Action" da colecção The Clone Wars da Hasbro (€39,99 or USD $63.33 cada).

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
