    Hello All!

    If anyone that works at another TRU is looking at this, PLEASE let your store's management know that this would be a nice gesture in other areas, like the Louisville KY metro area...and no, I am not one for being subtle.

    IIRC Target payed a fair chunk of change to he Hasbro's official TF movie headquarters...if too many TRU's do this it COULD get either TRU or Hasbro in some hot water depending on the verbage of the Target/Hasbro agreement. I know that the local game stores were told they couldn't do a midnight launch for the Wii since TRU had the rights as the official Wii headqaurters...

    I doubt that any other stores will conduct such an event. Our store has been conducting these TF Fan Events since 2004 and we now have a chance to finish them with the launch of the movie toys. Additionally, since this event has nothing to do with TRU on the National level, only a local/ regional promotion, there is no issue. It is not like Hasbro is supplying our TRU with anything special to one up Target.

    Now that that is settled, let's steer this thread back on topic. Let the excitement begin!

    That is awesome. The TF fans in your area are very lucky. If I was anywhere near Florida, I would have loved to check it out.

    I'm gonna try and arrange it. We were going to go to MGM for the first Star Wars weekend, but maybe I'll talk the g/f into this instead.

    I'll be there, too! Requested the night off of work and everything. I'm sure the boss'll find it strange that I requested off from 10PM to midnight that day...oh well. He's already approved my time for Botcon.

    Sure, but it's a nice way for the locals to assemble and connect a bit. Gotta say I was really impressed by the Florida gang at the last fan event... a darn nice, darn friendly bunch of folks. It's that ingrained southern hospitality, I suppose.

    Junior does a nice job pulling together a bunch of activities and stuff for the events he coordinates, too. If TRU ever does anything official for TFs (like a companywide fan event or promotion), I'll bet good money it would be partially as the result of the efforts he's made over the years.

    And yeah, some nametags with board name & first name might be a darn good idea...
