  1. You can count me among presale buyers of all of the top four except Star Wars. I did also buy presale for both Pirates, Attack of the Clones, Two Towers and Order of the Phoenix.

    Wow…I’m not so sure I should have admitted that outloud….

    Glad you enjoyed TDK too!

  2. Haha, that’s awesome. πŸ˜€

    Yes, it was unbelievable!
