The Last Midnight Madness: Revenge of the Sith DVD at the local Wal-Mart

I spent practically all day yesterday in my Jedi garb (even wearing it to the dentist office). So I was already set when Darth Larry swung by the apartment last night for what was possibly the final time we'll ever do a midnight run for new Star Wars goodness. This time it was the Episode III: Revenge of the Sith DVD that went on sale at 12:01 am this morning. Since I've chronicled all the other midnight madnesses on this blog, I brought my camera along to capture the fleeting moments for posterity...
Me in my Jedi getup. I wore this to Lisa's school yesterday afternoon for the kiddies to take a look at it, and apparently my picture is on the front page of the local paper today wearing this. I'll try to get a scan up soon.
Darth Larry, wearing his Luke Skywalker "Bespin" shirt and Yoda backpack. Does Yoda look like he's smoking some ganja or what?
Darth Larry's friend Alex (with his girlfriend). Alex has a REALLY good Jedi costume. Notice that his uses both the inner and outer shirt, whereas mine is just the outer one and a tan-colored sweatshirt. Still works though: there's plenty of room for how you do your Jedi getup. But Alex's is a good classic one.
Magic hour at 12:01 (actually by our clock it was 12:03). Darth Larry was one of the first to pay for a Revenge of the Sith DVD (including the "Story of Star Wars" bonus DVD that Wal-Mart did NOT make free with purchase! Grrrr...)
Here's me just after paying for my own copy.

Yeah it wasn't as crazy as it was back in April when we hit Toys R Us and Wallyworld and Target for a joyous Starwargasm of merchandise, but it was still a lot of fun. We had to do this, if for no other reason than to be able to tell our children what it was like to be out at an insane hour for sake of a saga. Anyhoo, I'll try and post a review of the DVD soon. And Darth Larry, it was great to do this one last time with you effendi :-)
