    That is a really good idea for a Christmas season Kiosk. Have a light saber out to play with in the mall, the person that owns that stand will probably do good business.

    It's more a kiosk than a store, but cool none the less. Might be interesting to see how it does to see if more pop up next Christmas season. Kiosks seem to have a pretty quick turn over rate in the malls I've been in. Of course, with the SIZE of many of the MR boxes, they couldn't get much merchandise actually in the kiosk, though it'd be interesting if they could setup online orders from the kiosk.

    Kerr,
    after seeing the kiosk pics.......that's exactly what I was thinking.....probably stock smaller items like the scaled sabers etc.....but are most likely taking orders for the big stuff.

    Hey...I was only half joking when in the other thread (about the new MR merchandise) I mentioned that I was waiting for a MR Store Outlet to hit the malls.

    Wow...that was fast. I think it took them only 2 or 3 days to react to my request.

    THANKS MR.

    :lol

    What mall is this in? I'm only a bit more than an hour from Walnut Creek. I wonder if they honour any of the Collector's Society discounts? Doubt it, but that would be rad....

    Is this a test kiosk to see how things go? Are there plans for any more to open up? What items would be available for purchase right at the kiosk, and will people be able to order larger items through the kiosk for delivery to their home?

    This is the only kiosk we have open. We may decide to open more down the road but do not have any plans to do so at this time.

    You can purchase things like FXs and minis right there as well as some of our limited edition items. We will also take orders for home delivery if we do not have what you want in stock.

    MR probably won't spend much more time on this thread, but if you do, are you guys thinking of franchising out mall Kiosks? I think that would be a really awesome short-season high turn-around business for your authorized retailers and internet guys. You already have an established relationship, and I have a felling that between October and Mid to late January that stuff would sell faster than a lot of the Kiosks could be re-stocked.

    I agree with Ghadrak...........the Kiosks at our local malls here in Georgia....they do more business during the holiday season...October to Jan 1, than some of the stores do in half a year.

    I just got back from there. I didn't even notice the Vader helmet in the top photo initially. I was a little more than suprised to see it there. I talked to the guy who was working the kiosk for about an hour (not sure if he wants me to blurt his name out here), nice guy. He said the Vader is one of the prototypes. It's definitely gorgeous and I can't wait to get mine. The dome on the one there didn't look super smooth or shiny. So I can see where the final product will be all polished up, so to speak.

    I read somewhere that MR only offers these during the Holiday Season. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I heard that from MR. I would expect them to be gone by now.

    I would suggest that MR get a bunch of these in malls. I think once people see their product, they fall in love with it.

    Just my 2 cents.

    If you live near disney, they carry all the MR merch in the various gift shops attached to the rides as well. The Star Tours ride ebing my favorite, even if it does give me motion sickness really bad. :lol :eek:

    DisneyLand no longer carries the Cursed aztec coins anymore. I remember wearing mine that I got at the Walnut Creek Kiosk, and everyone was asking me where to get it and I said they used to sell them by Pirates of the Carribbean, but when I went to the store there, the lady said they havent carried them for a long while.
