Today I went looking for SpacePoliceIII and found nothing... What I did find was that my local toystore had gotten the new wave of Star Wars sets and they even had a small 'competition' going.
One of these per customer and if you find Yoda behind the silver coating, well then you've won a poster of the 2009 minifig lineup :wub:
Imagine how shocked I was when I discovered that I'd won  :sweet:
Quickly I flashed the winning coupon and asked for my poster, this is where I got the usual 'aren't-you-a-little-too-old-for-this?'-look and also the point where she (the clerk) kindly explained that to her knowledge noone had 'lost' in this contest.  :blush:

Front of coupon:
Posted Image
Rough translation (partly using google.translator :sick: )
"Win a cool LEGO Star Wars poster"
"Scratch and find Yoda."
"Good luck!"
"If you've won you have to get the poster at the cashier in the store."

Rear of coupon:
Posted Image
"Purchase is not required to enter the competition"
"Only 1 ticket per person"
"Coupons are valid while stocks last or until the 03.07.2009."
"Prizes are not to be passed to others  and can not be exchanged for cash."
"Nationwide there are 24,000 prizes and each prize has a value of 0.72 DKK."

Poster:

Yeah that's the one.
I still can't figure out why people say this is wrong.
The only mistake I've found is the Clone Tropper.

Wow I would like to get one of them, I would hae never thought they would do scratch cards though. If they already have the posters it is likely one of the scatchcards will get a poster though cos lego wouldnt give posters to store members unless their were winning scratch cards.

Too cool! Sadly, they take the coupon, don't they? I'd actually like to have one of those (and the poster of course). Think you'll be able to pile up a few to sell on BL?

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

I doubt it, since I frequent that store pretty often and they all know me.
They allowed me to keep my coupon to share with you guys :grin:
I think I'll return and ask the owner kindly to donate a few for the Star Wars Forum.
And no, they're not folded, but rolled :wub:

I can only guess how the children in the shop must have felt.  :cry_sad:
There must have been a lot of tears and screaming going on...

No offense, KimT. Had to get that out of my system.

I don't think I ever said something about them being in sets.
The posters are rolled as opposed to being folded as the US S@H poster with minifigs is.
When you pass the counter, you can snatch a scratch coupon and then exchange it for a poster when you're done scratching of the silver substance.
It's just that simple :wub:

Snatch more coupons, they rock. :devil:

And yeah, they would certainly be eligible for a free plug on the site. Heck, the poster could be shown on the frontpage with a simple, "Courtesy of our friends at:" line added. :grin:

Rolled. :wub:  :cry_sad:

I agree! A hi-res scan of the back of it would make for a great poster! :wub:
Please, KimT? :sweet:

I'll try to rescan and see if I can make better versions, but please remember that the coupon is only 8x4 centimeters (or something like that).

The picture of the poster here is taken from that review and it's part of the instructions.
The real poster (not pictured) is a little bigger than that.
I'll do a pic tomorrow when the sun is here again.

here's a few other coupon scans:
.png 1
.png 2

EDIT: I just printed the .png's in A4 size and it looks ok.
The red is a little mushy, but it's been doubled in size more than once, so I guess that's ok.

Do you actually scratch the thing, or is it already scratched for you? :look:

Nice find by the way. :classic:

I'll definitely print this thing later. :sweet:

EDIT: Is the paper just normal paper, or some thicker version?

That's shocking.. imagine how sad a little kid will be when not getting the poster..
It's just wrong. I like the fun of a scratch contest like this, but I think people are supposed to win a poster.
It's just a little promotional fun, isn't it?
- apparently not, since yours didn't have a Yoda.

Yes, I scratched it :tongue:

Whatcha mean normal or thicker?
- The coupon is made of thick paper, if that is what you're asking and the poster is made of glossy posterpaper.

thanks!

I also thought that Yoda would be on all of them, so I was quite surprised when there was no Yoda on mine. Fortunately they gave away the posters even if people didn't scratch a Yoda. I was told that they had had several people, who didn't scratch a Yoda.

Oh, okay. Thanks for answering my questions. :grin:

I'll print these soon on 8.5 X 11 paper and see how it looks, though my color printer might be low on ink. :tongue:

And L-Space, you can just buy one of those LEGO Star Wars sets that have the poster in the instruction manual. :tongue:
