I certainly hope that the event later on will be carried out in an orderly manner. Just like 2yrs ago at the CW midnight madness launch at Forum TRU.

just back from the event. Crowd not as OG had hoped ... more vouchers than there were people in the queue. They even gave the vouchers to my 4 & 5 year old nephew & niece heh heh.

It was funny to see scalpers rushing in to scoop up the entire peg of Fetts & clones with a smug look on their face - only to see the OG staff refill them in a few minutes :lol: :lol: :lol:

When I left, there were still lots of Fetts, phase 2 clones, shock troopers, 501st, snowtroopers & Viszlas on the shelf.


ps. the freebie Fett is awesome!

Early in the morning...

A quick walkthrough before the store opens...

R2-D2 and members of the 501st Legion arrive...
ImageImageImageImage

Everyone in the line had the chance of winning one of two FX Lightsabers in the Lucky Draw conducted later in the morning.
ImageImageImage

Meet some of the enthusiastic OG staff who had to stay late on Friday night to prepare for this event, and still appeared bright and cheerful when they had to arrive early on Saturday....
ImageImage

The early birds streaming in when the door opened at 8am... Do you see yourself in the photos? :)

With ample stock, there was no need to rush-and-grab...
ImageImageImage.
ImageImageImage

Troopers are keen to shop too :)
ImageImage

Among the emcee-led quiz activities throughout the morning, one of the biggest prizes was the Republic Gunship which went to this young fan. Congrats! :)

Congratulations as well to the Lucky Draw winners and those who managed to grab the limited quantities of AT-AT and Lightsabers during the hourly special buys.

Other than shopping and prizes, fans young and old met and had photos taken with R2-D2 and the 501st Legion...

Thank you, Hasbro and OG, for organising this Toy Launch.
Hope everyone, fans and staff alike, enjoyed yourselves.
Starwars.sg, R2-D2 and the 501st Legion look forward to meeting you in future events

the 11 vintage figures are still available in large quantities.....
and the saga legends plus the TCW series........
for vehicles....they dun hv snowspeeder and twin pod cloud car...guess i will hv to get fm our toy speciality shops.....but quite a number of boxes of ATAT, tank fighter, TCW jedi fighters yellow and red plus speeder bike and plo koon, anakin and naboo fighter?....and some transformer stuff.....

but the forcefx lightsaber sold out.......at 200 bucks a pic..... :(

not many collectors there last evening...saw only casual collectors...judging by the way they pick the cards and questions asked...i muz say the OG auntie was very helpful.......and patience with them.....

i think everyone will get wat they want.....not a single figure is in short supply......guess the biggest losers will be the scalpers...whahahahaha

those who wanna to build their armies of shock, 501st, white clones and snowtroopers.....aplenty.......

those expecting frustrations and disappointments.........no more......everyone will be able to go home with wat they want......
the OG auntie told me the rocket firing boba fett is still available in pretty neat quantities.....so no worries.....

As per my review on the cloud car, please note that all vehicles are available at general retail, and not restricted to OG Orchard Point.

For the Saga Legends and Clone Wars figures, the retailing price remains at SGD$18.90.
