I did it for Ep1, might as well do it here.

I bought all of the following on April 23, 2002:

Basic Figures
Anakin (Outland Peasant)
Arena Padme
Obi-Wan Coruscant
Kit Fisto
Super Battle Droid
Boba Fett
Tusken w/ Child
Capt. Typho
Shaak Ti
Battle Droid
Plo Koon
Jango Fett (Kamino Escape)
R2-D2 w/ kouhouns
Geonosian Warrior
Dexter Jettster
Saesee Tiin
Jar Jar Binks
Taun We
Luminara Unduli

-Clone Commander, Zam Wesell, Royal Guard, Hangar Duel Anakin, Yoda, and Count Dooku all followed in the next few weeks.

Deluxe Figures/Beasts
Darth Tyranus (only cause I couldn't find the basic figure on 4/23)
Mace Windu (I kind of regret it now, but it was a little bit better than the basic figure)
The Reek

Slave 1 (one of my favorite AOTC vehicles)
Anakin's Speeder (lamest AOTC vehicle)
Zam's Speeder (it had a cool action feature)

-I picked up Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter about a month before 4/23. It was a sneak preview vehicle, I think.

What did you guys buy?

I literally think that I picked up every 3 3/4", every deluxe, and every 12" that was available. I don't play any games when it comes down to it. I think I spend around $300.

03-05-2005, 03:05 PM
I bought R2, C3PO, Tusken, Boba Fett,Jango Fett,Padme and a bunch of other figures.

Wow. You were able to find all of the 27 figures that night? That's amazing. In my area, scalpers grabbed up all the Yodas and Dookus. Now they rot on some shelves for $1.99. Go figure.:rolleyes:

03-05-2005, 03:25 PM
I found many of them. The one figure that I had trouble finding that night was the Royal Guard. I think I had to go to a WM to find him.

I never go to midnight madness, there really is no need. I went to Wal-Mart and TRU in the afternoon of April 23 and bought 23 of the first 27 figures. I found Yoda, Dooku, and Anakin (Hanger Duel) at another Wal-Mart the next day.

I was lucky and my local wal-mart got the first 27 figures, so I got all of 'em:

02-01 __ Anakin Skywalker (Outland Peasant Disguise)
02-02 __ Padmé Amidala (Arena Escape)
02-03 __ Obi-Wan Kenobi (Coruscant Chase)
02-05 __ Kit Fisto (Jedi Master)
02-06 __ Super Battle Droid
02-07 __ Boba Fett (Kamino Escape)
02-04 __ C-3PO (Protocol Droid)
02-08 __ Tusken Raider (Female with child)
02-09 __ Captain Typho (Padmé's Head of Security)
02-10 __ Shaak Ti (Jedi Master)
02-11 __ Battle Droid (Arena Battle)
02-12 __ Plo Koon (Arena Battle)
02-13 __ Jango Fett (Kamino Escape)
02-14 __ R2-D2 (Coruscant Sentry)
02-15 __ Geonosian Warrior
02-16 __ Dexter Jettster (Coruscant Informant)
02-17 __ Clone Trooper
02-18 __ Zam Wesell (Bounty Hunter)
02-19 __ Royal Guard (Coruscant Security)
02-20 __ Saesee Tiin (Jedi Master)
02-21 __ Nikto (Jedi Knight)
02-22 __ Anakin Skywalker (Hanger Duel)
02-23 __ Yoda (Jedi Master)
02-24 __ Jar Jar Binks (Gungan Senator)
02-25 __ Taun We (Kamino Cloner)
02-26 __ Luminara Unduli (Jedi Master)
02-27 __ Count Dooku (Dark Lord)

The Deluxe figures did not impress me in general, so I only bought the Deluxe Jango Fett. I also bought a few doubles to open and was quickly disappointed with them, and soon considered skipping the Saga line all together, but did not.

All told I spend about $200.00 on MM in 2002.

I Didn't go to MM, I went the next day. I think I hit 8-10 stores.

I got 13 Basic Figures. (No Dooku or Yoda. Found them later)

Slave I
Obi-Wan's Starfighter
Zam's Speeder

Anakin's Lightsaber
Obi-Wan's Lightsaber

Time Magazine with Yoda on the cover

AOTC Soundtrack

LOTR Prologue Elrond (Only one I ever saw anywhere)
LOTR Aragorn

In all I think I spent just a shade under $200

I picked up Jango, Boba, Royal Guard, clone troopers (amazing how many variations were available on the first day), battle droids and super battle droids.

After hitting 3 24 hr. Wal-Marts and TRU at opening I had all 27 basic figures, Slave 1, the Reek and Obi-Wan's Starfighter. I found the Deluxe assortment and Speeders before MM so I already had those. When all was said and done I spent about $250. With the large amount of product slated for release at this years MM I'm looking at spending twice that much. I think I need help. :crazed:

I didn't go to Midnight Madness, I went after work that day. I went to Wal-Mart first, then to Toys R Us. I did not find Geonosian Warrior, Dexter, Yoda or Dooku. The following figures I did not find at Wal-Mart but found at Toys R Us - Jar Jar, Luminara, Nikto, Saesee Tiin, Royal Guard and Taun We. Also at Toys R Us, I bought the AT-ST with Paploo and Speeder Bike and an LOTR Orc Warrior. I also got the four Deluxe figures at Wal-Mart. Total of all this including sales tax was $230.60. I didn't get any other vehicles or beasts this day.

Didn't go. I stopped in at WM on the way into work the next morning and bought Jango Fett with grappling rope and the WM exclusive TIE bomber and crashed snowspeeder. It was the first time I'd seen the two vehicles at WM and was more interested in them at the time.

I wasn't collecting in 2002, boohoo. Now I must buy off the secondary market to fill in the gaps. Oh well what can you do!

Cripes, your asking me to remember what I bought 3 years ago?

Okay, I'll try.

I can definitely say that I bought just under $700 worth of stuff. If the list doesn't add up to that, just trust me that it is so.

1 of every figure except Dooku. (I got shut out by a suspect collector)
Tie Bomber (Remember that this as well as the Snowspeeder were Wal*Mart exclusives and none in my area let these be released until the AOTC toy release)
1 each of the 12 inch
Anakin's speeder
Zam's Speeder
3 extras of the red clone
3 extras of the super battler droid
2 extras of the battle droid
1 each of the deluxe sets

That's all I can remember off hand. I'd have to dig deep for the actual list.
