I've just been contacted by a client who wants to re-create the "Wow_GrandmaWasAHottie.jpg" super in this spot but in spanish. Aside from them providing the traslation and possibly a font (I'm still waiting to hear back from them), it looks as though I'll have to re-create this from scratch. So I don't have a problem w cutting this up myself and hand animating it all but I just want to know if anyone out there sees another way that this could have or can be done. Thank you for your time and feedback. Just for the record, I'm still using CS3 and the only particle plug-ins I have available to me are the ones that came out of the box w AE :( Thanks again.

There are a few ways of doing what you are after.
Card Dance is great for this kind of stuff.

Also, Red Giant has a great plugin called Plane Space has a 3d Layer Distributor:

if the reveal is very grid-like (as in the example) then, as ted mentions, card dance is a pretty good way to go.

you'll find several short tutorials on this page that do similar logo reveals:

one draw back of card dance though, is no native motion blur, so you'll need to make use of cc force motion blur (which is a render performance killer) and you'll want to apply it on the system as a pre-comp... basically, get the movement and timings right, then pre-comp the card dance layer and add force motion blur to the pre-comp layer in the main comp.
