Nets transactions will be available from 22 onwards, since they told me the nets machine will only be available from that date.

Same location, but at different counters. There are 2 counters - one by SimplyToy, and the other by Sci Ctre. The AoSW Deluxe Book is sold at Sci Ctr counter.

Hi everyone,

OK, about the Art of Star Wars exhibition book . Currently the only one available is the simple paperback $65 version.

The deluxe or premium version is not released yet, and is undergoing a major revamp , and I assure you that the changes are going to make the deluxe book set really, really worth collecting . We will probably pay a higher premium price for it , but it is going to be worth it .

Details are still under wraps at the moment , but you will all be the first to hear about it right here when the time is right . :)

Oh, and talking about collectibles and exclusives , let me give all interested a BIG HINT . This is from me personally, off the cuff, and not official , but if anyone is interested in cool collectibles, go and visit the Art of Star Wars photo booth , and tell them that www.starwars.sg sent you. You can mention my name ;)

No promises, but you just might leave the booth happy . ;)

Just a thought...

It's great to have Simply Toys carrying STAR WARS merchandise at SSC. But isn't something obvious missing from the merchandise range?

I'm talking about the STAR WARS movies on DVD.

After visiting the exhibition, visitors (targeting a family unit consisting of parents who have LUKE-warm interest in Star Wars but their kids love it to death) can take home the EXPERIENCE.

Place a home-theatre system outside the exhibition hall with the DVD player programmed to play action-packed chapters from Revenge Of The Sith or The Empire Strikes Back and kids will be glued to the TV.

Honestly (no offense), the Simply Toys merchandise target fans but the DVDs make wholesome entertainment for the whole family.

If the ART OF STAR WARS exhibition isn't the best venue in Singapore to sell the DVDs at this moment, I wonder where else is.

I totally agree with imperial officer that they should have some star wars related video screened at the main entrance. Currently, the Singapore Airlines commercial keeps looping on and on, and it's pretty irritating to hear the same thing the whole day. At least bring on some star wars music man!

As for the DVD, it is a very good suggestion. But they are rules that need to be abide by. If I am not wrong. When a company registers with ACRA, they need to specify the core nature of the business. eg if you state toys, you must sell toys related stuffs and nothing else. So I'm not sure whether Simply Toys is able to sell DVDs, if not they might get complains from those shops selling dvds.

Btw, is the exclusive stuff the pewter pins?
