Windsor never gets anything, it's understandable though, since we're only a few miles from Detroit.
But, it would still be nice to see something exciting happen in my town.

We don't seem to get these in Winnipeg either. I'm assuming those stores that were selected must do the most business in Canada so those "top 5" made the cut.  I'd go to it if they did one in Winnipeg, but I think they'd get a turnout of only around 20 to 30 people rather than the 100 that their tshirt and poster limit implies that they're anticipating.

You have also to know that in some provinces, like here in Québec, it is prohibited by law to have stores other than depanneurs (or other exceptions) to be open at midnight.

Interesting about Quebec - I didn't know that. Sounds pretty civilized of you folks.
Honestly the best part of these things is the atmosphere leading up to midnight when you have a good lively group of us geeks and our geek kids. The right mix can make it pretty fun.

It's a win for the store too because tired / hyped people surrounded by other tired / hyped people will typically impulse buy more than well rested people who are on their own.

Kitchener's not opening this time & it was a zoo last time. No motivation to travel for that. I will see the geeks at 0700, plenty soon enough. :D

Any sign of the mini-poster and t-shirt?  Wondering what they look like.

I heard the T-shirt is a Funko Pop one called Rey and friends.

And the mini-poster is part of a series of 4 (I think).  No word on whether they're combine 'em all to make one big picture or separate character posters or what.

They were just handing out bags at the door. I haven't even looked at mine yet.

I wish I'd asked if they had different sizes for the shirt. No chance I'm wearing a large.
