Guess what fell into my hot little hands

As a collector, I love acquiring promotional and press materials. Press kits in particular aren’t that hard to find, especially on eBay, but they are expensive. I remember back in 2003, I saw a guy at Shore Leave–a fan-run Trek/sf con near Baltimore–selling an AOTC press kit for $75. Don’t ask how much an ANH or TESB press kit that’s complete and in mint condition would cost!

So, a few days ago on eBay I spotted someone selling a Clone Wars press kit, which I ended up buying for $55. This being 2008, there’s nothing on printed paper. All of the press material is on a CD, including interviews, bios of the main players, headshots of the voice talent, synopses, and dozens of stills. The kit includes a DVD of the first two televised episodes. Sweet, isn’t it?

Looking through some of the stuff (it’s a slow day at work), I found a couple of synopses of episodes that haven’t aired yet. Wanna see what they are?

The Bothan home planet of Bothawui, never before seen on screen, comes to the forefront as a heroic ally falls prey to the sinister plot of General Grievous, and his friends must fight to rescue him.

Oooh, Bothans! 

Senator Padmé Amidala faces a life-threatening showdown with her nemesis, Separatist Viceroy Nute Gunray, the victim of ultimate deception by the leader of a desperate planet.

This should be very entertaining to watch, heh heh.

Remember no Clone Wars this week, kids. CN is going to run some special Halloween programming instead.

    I’m liking the sounds on those! Does it say when they should air?

    I’d bet money the “heroic ally” is Artoo – for some reason I remember his name coming up in connection to Bothawui somewhere, maybe in the Visual Guide. And I think the Padme episode is a couple of weeks after that.
