Hi everyone, I’m Kip Roggendorf, Retail Manager for Sony PlayStation. If you are a PlayStation.Blog regular, then there is a good chance you knew about the Star Wars Battlefront Entertainment Pack event we hosted at the Metreon last night. The 501st Squadron was out in full force watching over the line and Darth Vader kicked off the evening by picking the raffle winner for one of his lightsabers. The green screen set up was a blast and several of the Stormtroopers took a break from security detail to take pictures with some of the guests waiting in line. Even Darth Vader and Boba Fett took a photo break with a lucky few.
The turnout was awesome and I want to thank all of the PSP and Star Wars fans that attended. I also want to thank the LucasArts team for their support. Everyone in line received a Darth Vader pen and Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron poster. The most sought after item was the Han Solo Carbonite PSP case which went to all that purchased the entertainment pack.
To those of you who live in San Francisco and didn’t come, here are a few pics of our friends from the 501st Squadron. As you can see, the members of the 501st look like the real deal and it appears like they are actually on the cover of the game.
