Watch “Saving Star Wars” and benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation


“SAVING STAR WARS” REUNITES WITH THE 501ST LEGION TO BENEFIT THE MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION.

In 2004, DAVE (DARTH VADER) PROWSE, filmmaker Gary L. Wood, and the worldwide fan army, the 501st Legion, joined forces to save “Star Wars”. In 2013, it appears they may have succeeded.

To celebrate, and to say Thank You to the 501st who, in addition to “trooping” in their amazing costumes, have always made charity events and fundraising a part of their on-going mission, Dave and WoodWorks Films have made their award-winning, cult hit, “Saving Star Wars” available to stream online and will donate $2 from every viewing to Make-A-Wish in the name of the 501st.

To sweeten the deal, this offer isn’t just for the over 6000 members of the 501st worldwide. Any viewings of the movie from Labor Day Weekend, August 30 to Sunday, Sept 8, 2013, will generate $2 for Make-A-Wish, so spread the word to family and friends, even Jedi.

Ten years ago, “Saving Star Wars” told the story of two “Star Wars” fans that accidentally kidnapped George Lucas while trying to honor the wish of an ill child. The Wish? To SAVE “Star Wars”….All NINE films we were promised. For the last 10 years it has traveled all over world, including DVDs of the movie hand-delivered to key members of George Lucas’ team. Today, “Star Wars” lives on.

See the little movie that, with the help of Darth Vader and the Bloodfin Garrison of the 501st, may have helped convinced Mr. Lucas to let the sequels be made.

Grab the family and friends this holiday weekend, enjoy the movie that The Force.net called “A Must See!” and help Make-A-Wish continue to make dreams come true.

Update: Someone found this blog by searching “are the despicable me 2 blind bags available at Target?” The answer as far as I can tell in no. At least not yet. An associate tried to help my wife find them there. They checked the despicable me 2 toys, the card end cap and the card and toys at the register. They did not have them. He said if we had the UPC we could scan an see if they were in store. So next time I went to Target I took the barcode from a bag and scanned it and the self scan. The scanner said item not found. So Target does not currently have the blind bags. They do have the action figures and they are cheaper there than at Toys R Us or K-mart. TRU and K-mart are the only place I’ve found the blind bags so far.

Exculsive Minifigs with DVD or Target and Back Again


March was great for Mini-fig collectors. There were two dvd releases that included exclusive min-figs. Target had an exclusive Bilbo Baggins mini fig with the Hobbit DVD/Blu-ray combo pack. Plus the Cartoon network LEGO Star Wars special, The Empire Strikes Out had an exclusives Darth Vader mini-fig. I’ll tell you about my experience with each.

Bilbo LEGO from Target.

I’ll start with The Empire Strikes Out DVD cause it a shorter story. The special aired on Cartoon Network last September. Last time there was a Star Wars:LEGO special the dvd release was announced right after wards. This time it took a while for the announcement. Speculation was what would mini-fig if any, would be included in the dvd release. This time it was Darth Vader with a medal.

The figure looks pretty cool and an alternate Darth Vader is always cool. The dvd retail for $14.99 but Amazon and Target have it for $9.99. It was easy to find on the shelfs at Target unlike the Hobbit dvd. The dvd was released on March 26.

When it was revealed that Target would offer an exclusive mini-fig with the purchase of The Hobbit dvd/Blu-ray combo I was eager to shop at Target. I decided to pre-order the set. I was afraid the store would sell out before I could get there. So I ordered from target.com, the delivery date was a few days after the date the dvds would be in store. I didn’t expect to be able to watch the movie that night anyway so it wasn’t that big of a deal. But I remember the days when you could pre-order a dvd or game and it would be delivered the same day it was in the stores. I had the same problem with the LEGO:Lord of The Rings Game.
The Sunday ads were released and the in store price was two dollars cheaper than the online price. Did Target guarantee and match prices like amazon did? No. The day the dvd came the online target.com listed the set as unavailable. I was worried they’d sell out. But They tell me if they were out right? I thought about going to the store but didn’t. The next day still no shipping notification. the set was still listed as unavailable online. I had to run some errands and went to Target. They still had about four sets with the mini-fig so I grabbed one. Turned out to be a good decision. This was on Wednesday.

The expected delivery date was between Friday the 22-tues 26. I thought about cancelling the order but I knew some birthdays were coming up and that make a good gift. Finally they send a shipping notification on Saturday. But the pic they sent with it was of the regular DVD/Blu-ray set sans Bilbo. But when I clicked the link in the email it showed the set with Bilbo. And the expected delivery date was changed to March 30. a week after the original expected date.
Finally on Saturday I open the mailbox and inside in a small package, It’s thin so I know before I open that there is no figure in the set. It was a holiday weekend so I waited till Monday to return the dvd to a Target store. The Hobbit dvd was released on March 19 it arrived on March 30. From the time it was released and arrived i had gone to Target bought the Hobbit dvd, made another trip to Target and got the Star Wars special. So lesson learned don’t preorder from Target. get out there and fight the crowds.
The Bilbo figure is very well done. He has blue jacket, a vest and an ascot. His head is double-sided. You will see him in this blog again.
