Lord Vader...Rise!

In approximately seventeen days Lord Vader will do just that in Japan! I cannot wait! As such I have stepped up efforts to an almost feverish pitch by watching the trailer at least four times a day and still getting more giddily excited with every viewing. Its like I've never seen the trailer before (although I think I am rapidly approaching 500 viewings) and I still scream in horror when ever I hear the words, "You were the chosen one!" or "Lord Vader...'Yes Master'...Rise!" Almost every time!

But alas, I am not alone. Last evening one of my good friends sent me this great picture that shows that Japan is about to go crazy waiting for this movie! My jaw dropped a good literal two inches when I saw this. Take a good close look!


My People

So we are ready. I know, I know. You people in the United States have already been there, done that and are on to the next big thing. But the hype is building here in the land of the sun. I'd write more, but I've got to go watch the trailer again...

Six Darth Vaders and only ONE Boba Fett???? I am shocked...SHOCKED! It saddens me to no end to see the continual neglect of, without a doubt, the coolest side character of all time. It was bad enough that Lucas killed him off like a clown in the third movie, but then to find out that his progenitor was the original "model" for the clones to further dilute his ultimate coolness, and now this!!!

I weep...

That is the best picture I've ever seen. I'm glad to know that we're not the only country where people dress up to go see Star Wars, because then we would just look silly. :)

that's you as C3PO isn't it?!?
Yes, indeed your wait will be well worth it, because it's awesome! I do wish I could be there with you for the viewing....there is truly nothing like hearing your cries of excitement in a really great movie. I hope you're doing well, keep up the good work there.
