Are you going to be at your local toy store on the 23rd? I am. But I have a question about buying the new figures at midnight. How much money will I probably need if I want to buy all of the figures realesed on the 23rd? Just wondering, not saying I am goign to buy every one.

Yes, I am going to go SW crazy on the 23rd.
As far as how much money you will need, that depends on what you will be buying.
I believe Wal-Mart will be selling these for $5.88 a piece, so that is probably your best bet. There are supposed to be 14 (I think) basic figures on that day, plus 2 deluxe (which will be around $9-$10 each).
Then you have the 12 inch figures. We will see 3 of those on the 23rd. They retail for around $20 a piece.
Plus there will be the vehicles and the beast assortments, which will be around $20 each.
There will be alot to buy, so get to saving!!

No there will be 12 released on the 23rd. It's sort of history repeating itself. There were 12 originally released for A new hope back in 78'. So all you have to do is multiply the $5.88 WM price or the $6.99 TRU price (don't forget sales tax) and there is your answer.

Hiya all...I used to be an avid poster here a few years ago and now that Episoide 2 is around the corner I'm starting to get excited again....I have a couple questions for anyone that would be able to help me. Are all Toy's R Us's opening at midnight this time around? Or should I consult my local TRU? Is the midnight opening the evening of April 22nd at midnight? Or actually on April 23rd at midnight? Thanks for your responses in advance! :)
