Reader Jedi Jaden writes in with some interesting details regarding the Monday, September 28 launch of the Disney Store Exclusive Elite Series Darth Maul Die Cast figure.
I just confirmed with two Disney Stores, that Monday’s release of the Star Wars Elite Series Darth Maul, will be using a lottery system.
Between 12-1pm (Est. Time Zone), lottery slips will be given to people in attendance. Those who’s lottery number are picked will be able to purchase the figure later in the day.
Given that a majority of people do work for a living, it’s astonishing to me, that the think tank that is Disney, would not stagger the lottery times amidst it’s stores so that people who do have to work, would have a shot at getting a figure as well.

ThinkGeek has announced their exclusive life size BB-8 plush figure.
This Life Size BB-8 Plush promises not to go on its merry way before you get a hug in. That’s because it has no motor inside. Just stuffin’. Did we mention it’s 2 feet tall? It’s weighted so the head stays mostly upright. Because nobody wants an upside-down droid, even a plush one.
