iPHONE CASES Star Wars By PowerA
PowerA, a leadng manufacturer of gaming controllers and accessories, has created a new line of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s phone cases. The first wave of these collector cases debuted at the 2012 E3 Expo in Los Angeles, CA and released for initial sale on the PowerA website. Beginning on 7/22/12, the phone cases will also be for sale in Best Buy stores. The initial wave of phone cases is made up of two collectors cases (R2-D2 and Chewbacca), and two Saga Cases, with original art from the Star Wars movie poster or the Droids of Tatooine. There are at least two other collector cases coming later in 2012, Darth Vader and C-3PO.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
