<CENTER>DISNEY'S STAR TOURS EXCLUSIVES, REVIEW, ERROR AND...MORE</CENTER> <CENTER> by Ishi Tib</CENTER> Like many out there, after hearing the news about the release of three Star Tours figures, exclusive to the Disney's Theme Parks, I headed up north, taking the long 4 hour drive from Miami to Orlando. In my pocket a huge list of request from different collectors wanting the exclusives and in my wallet a credit card willing to take a big hit once I would find the figures... To avoid anymore confusion by those who seem to know it all, THERE IS NO LIMIT ON THE AMOUNT YOU CAN BUY...you can buy the entire peg wall if you wish and...yes, there is an error with R3-D3 and I have posted detailed pictures of it as well. Now remember where you saw it first! Here is the story There are two places, at least here in Florida selling the three droids; the places are: <CENTER>ONCE UPON A TOY</CENTER> This toy store newly opened is located in Disney's Downtown. There is free parking and plenty of it. There is no admission, no fees to pay to get into the place. Downtown Disney is nothing more than a huge shopping mall where you can find an incredible array of restaurants, such as Gloria Estefan's "Bongo's" and the famous "Planet Hollywood" where Sylvester Stallone and big Arnold are the CO-owners among other Hollywood celebrities. Downtown Disney offers as well "Pleasure Island" a composition of five different nightclubs each one with a unique music style, going from country, to hip hop, to hard-heavy-alternative rock. The Lego store, for those of you into collecting Star Wars Legos, is a dream come true at Downtown Disney. Unique and exclusive Lego sculptures such as Darth Maul's life-size head, can be purchased there. Pens and key chains created using Lego pieces and dealing with Star Wars are in abundance and there is even an outside playground for kids to run and play around with lifesize Lego sculptures as well as building tables were Lego pieces are free to use. Five stores down from the Lego store, on the East side of the mall, you will find "Once Upon a Toy" Those of you who liked the incredibly computer animated "Toy Story" flick, will be delighted seeing two life-size replicas of Mr. Potato Head and Buzz Lightyear, greeting you at the entrance. Inside you will find the Potato Head factory, where you can build your own Mr. Potato using an amazing amount of different parts and styles available. Further in, towards the center of the store, the Star Wars section awaits you. Nicely set up with different display cases and a series of exclusives, I thought they would not have. There, the exclusive Toys R Us X-wing with R2-D2 was available and in big numbers, although retailing for $50.00, a total of $10.00 more than Toys R Us price. The Fan Club exclusive 12" sculpt of Ki-Adi Mundi was also in stock, with over 10 of them on the shelves and selling for $28.00. The 7" vinyl figures of Jango Fett and Mace Windu were there also and of course, the main reason of my trip, the 3 3/4" Star Tours droids covered and entire peg wall with plenty to be had and yes!!!, NO LIMIT ON THE AMOUNT OF DROIDS; buy as many as you like That is why, everyone out there who requested a set from me got it; I ended up buying 19 SETS! at $10.00 a figure...you do the math <CENTER>DISNEY- MGM STUDIOS</CENTER> A day at the Disney- MGM Studios is like being part of a Comedy-Thriller-Action-Adventure. There you can ride rides, see shows, share 3-D guffaws and stunt awes. It is like the very best of showbiz. Located only 10 minutes away from Downtown Disney, MGM studios will definitely cost you to get in. The admission fee is $50.00 for a one day pass. But if the amount is not a problem for you, surely you'll love what awaits inside. The Indiana Jones ride is, to say the least, incredible. You can even become an extra and be part of a series of three different action-packed scenes amazingly recreated right before your eyes in a three stage set. Once you have finished seeing the show, stop by the Indy store where you can purchase a variety of items from the famous Indy hat to the exclusive 3 3/4" figure of the character which includes his torch, gun, whip and sword. The price, just $8.00 for the figure. About half a block down from the Indiana Jones Spectacular, you will be in awe once you see the incredible life-size replica of the AT-AT vehicle. This view is right at the entrance of the Star Tours ride. The building housing the tour is an exact representation of an Ewok Village, where even a real life size speeder bike is showcased and you can even ride it. Star Tours is the ultimate Star Wars thrill ride. A moving C-3PO will greet you right before you board a Star Speeder vehicle, nothing more than a light-speed trip to the Death Star Space Station. Along the wait you will be able to see all of the droids recently turned into plastic and exclusive to the park. An amazing view as you truly feel you are being part of a Star Wars film. Once you exit the ride, the hallway will lead you right inside the Star Tours store and you will be surrounded with nothing more than Star Wars merchandise. The building where the store is located was built in the shape of typical Tatooine moisture farm, even some moisture vaporators can be found outside of the premises. Shirts, mugs, pencils, posters, key chains, magnets and anything you can think of relating to the films fill the place up. There, against the wall, the exclusive figures of the three droids can be found. Surprisingly they did not have as many as Once Upon a Toy had but still you could had grabbed them by the bunch.
