May the Fourth 2021
« on: April 24, 2021, 09:08:36 AM »

Haven't seen much May the 4th promotions advertised yet besides Lego, maybe they're waiting until next week? I get that with COVID still causing major problems they probably didn't want to plan any in store stuff (that could've had to be canceled or that they get criticized for), but i was thinking we'd hear of some online stuff by now.

If you hear of something, post it here!

Yakface reported that TRU will open pre-orders for the 6" Clone Wars figures on the 4th. 

Here's a TRU link -

Steam typically discounts a bunch of Star Wars games around this time as well.

I was curious so I emailed TRU customer service to see if they can provide a specific time for the sale.

I noticed their website has updated to say there's an unboxing event at 7:30. It says "unbox collector must haves"... :confused0024: but of course no for sale time is posted.

So customer service said they can't give a specific time. Just that "The action figures will go on sale starting May 4th according to Pacific Daylight Time." But this doesn't necessarily mean midnight. I asked if that meant midnight PDT and they said no they couldn't give me a specific time.

So it's a guessing game. I just hope they have enough for everyone who wants them. I'm not holding my breath.

This is from the TRU May 4th thread at Yakface.  (Doesn't answer the question, but I thought it was funny.)

DarthVenoxia: Really hoping I can get them before they sell out. Anyone have a guess as to the time they might go live?

That's for the "unboxing event" not necessarily when the items go on sale.

I guess their Twitter person knows more than their customer service.

That's good at least there's an approximate time. The twitter did say it may not be right at 8:30 but should be shortly after.

Make sure you go to a google search page and search "may the 4th be with you", what happens will bring a smile to your face.    :D :u: :rockon: :r2d2line:

It's 8:41am, and the number of SW nerds constantly pressing F5 to refresh the TRU webpage must be mind-boggling at this point   :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

(myself included, even though there's nothing I really want on their website)
