I'll be busy this week moving in to a house after 3 months of living in hotels. It's a good opportunity to do a second annual NO WEBLOG FOR OLD ROBOTS WEEK. Except unlike last year when I put some effort into it, this time I'm just phoning it in. So enjoy this week's store appearances themed series of ads where various Floridian malls and marts from over 20 years ago rolled out the red carpet for a variety of guests hailing from Tatooine, Symbion, Eternia and wherever Donkey Kong comes from.
TODAY: Lakeland Mall in Lakeland, Florida hosts Chewbacca and Darth Vader on October 8th, 1977. Check it out at Google's newspaper archive. Awesome line of the ad: "Instant Polaroid pictures available"!
