I've never seen quite the toy rush that was at the Toys R Us I went to tonight for the Toys R Us midnight Episode I toy premier. While the store I was at didn't hand them out, some stores were passing out nice looking official certificates to shoppers. Thanks to Jedi-Ty for scanning his and sending it over tonight. The were no limits at TRU's in Dallas but really the limiting factor was just being able to get to the toys and carry them so it really didn't matter. Here are some snapshots from tonights shopping. Most people missed the presell tickets but it really doesn't matter as these products aren't coming for some time.

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
