This is crazy. Midnight Madness in Plano, Texas.

Ok, so I got an email during the week from ToysRUs, StarWars.com, or Hasbro. I don't remember which. But it mentioned the event would take place and included a list of locations (only two in north Texas).

I collect two things. Star Wars Titanium Series 3" Diecast Vehicles (Loose) and Star Wars Droid 3.75" Action Figures (Mint On Card).

Those were the only things I wanted. In the past, some things have become scarce and I end up paying a ton on eBay to get something. With all of the hype about Midnight Madness, I decided since I had nothing else going on that I would get my stuff at normal price instead of waiting.

I got a bunch. But there was one thing I couldn't get.

With every purchase of $30 or more, you get a free Toys R Us exclusive Holographic General Grievous (Limit one per customer).
This retailer had them on pegs with the rest of the figures. One guy single handedly filled his basket with all of them before anyone had a chance. He cleaned them out and was gone.

I read on eBay that these are going for $50-100 each.

Annoying. I know they are just toys but it's the simple fact of some scalper doing that, really gets under many people's skin.

It was completely crazy. I took pictures. But the pictures were taken after I got my things. It was two or three times as bad before I took these photos.

In other words, the only new Titanium on pegs right now is the Cloud Car. I bought it at Target the next day, it's good but zero features.
