    My wife often thinks of me as a child older than six- 30+ years older.

    Mine is happy that I'm an older-than-average child, and not a frustrated 40 something with lack of a hobby :)

    Having attended previous TRU build events, we arrived early this time (10:45) expecting to wait. We would've been first, had we stuck around. The coordinator guy insisted the build was at noon, & I said on official online notice said "noon Eastern", which meant 11am our time (Central).  Well, I wasn't about to hang around an hour with my kids, so we left. Had other stuff to do so we didn't return.

    I was slightly miffed, as I was sure of the event's time, & the guy was a bit haughty about it.

    Anyone in the US confirm the time thiis actually began today?

    I'm on Central time and they always run from 12 - 2. I like to go around 1:30 after the crowds die down and they usually still have some to spare. The line was still pretty long even at that time today though, and my daughter was getting hungry, so we didn't stay.

    After seeing the crowds around here the last few times (this wouldve been our 4th event) I wouldnt chance going late. Once it was such a mob scene, I just stood back & sent my son into the crowd to grab the pieces & instruction sheet.

    Yeah, I guess now I see we were in the wrong (that timetable would mean the event was at 8am Pacific) but that they included the time zone in the post confused me. I hope that didnt confuse anyone else. Whenever I see a time for "Eastern", I naturally think "oh, that's an hour earlier my time."

    The only TRU build that we tried to go to past 1 and didn't get was the Jurassic World one. They let us pick a free poly out of four options instead. We would have been able to get the X-Wing today if we stuck around, but that's alright. My daughter got a My Little Pony and I got two of the Threepio polys, so we were both content :) .

    Our TRU actually started the giveaway at 11:45 EST as the line was getting a bit long. They had the parts pre-packed if you didn't want to wait and build at the table. +1 for thinking ahead TRU, that place was a zoo today!

    I was in the store during the build and just passed it up for the Lego aisles because I thought it was only for kids.

    One of the associates saw me and asked if I had gotten my x-wing yet.

    When I replied that I didn't, he told me where to go and that I could get one.
    The associate didn't bat an eyelash at me when I got my bag.

    Question for all: How did they package your x-wing? 
    I got mine in a Ziploc snack bag (the associate counted out the parts).

    ^ Ours were in a Ziplock-type bag as well. I'm pretty sure they were supplied by LEGO as they are similar to the ones you get from LEGO when they send replacement parts. They have the warning labels on them, similar to the parts direct ones.

    @donutboy I'm at work right now but can take a pic when I get home. Are you looking for the instructions, set in bag, or built set?

    I was thinking of a photo of the built set, but a pic of instructions would be fantastic.
    Thank you.

    @donutboy the one X-wing on the stand is from Star Wars Celebration the other I believe is from the TRU X-wing TIE build.

    Awesome! Thanks for the directions. Might be time to build a fleet of micro X-Wings in a multitude of colors :D

    @gmonkey76  Thanks so much. It's very similar to the advent calendar x-wing from a few years ago isn't it. Just need to find some of those orange bits.
