View Full Version : Toys R Us Midnight Madness - Are you going?

hey folks...just curious as to how many of you are planning on going to Midnight Madness @ Toys R Us?

If you are going, what time are you planning on getting there?

04-17-2002, 12:14 PM
I am not going because not a single TRU in NC is participating in midnight madness. The closest one to me is over 200 miles away in Virginia and I am not prepared for that. I have 2 very nice 24 hr Wal-Marts within 30 miles, so I will be going there and hitting the other stores during the daylight hours. I just cant wait now.

I am planning on going, but I am under the impression that Wal-Mart will have a better selection!! We shall see.

Take care,


P.S. Where in LA are you and which TRU were you planning on going to? EP 1 midnight madness I went to the Van Nuys TRU.

I will be going to MM at my local TRU. I have to work that night 4-10 pm, but I'll be headin' to TRU right after work. There is a local 24hr Wal-Mart nearby as well, so whatever I don't get at TRU, I'll be looking for at wally world.

Nope. :) Only 2 stores in my state are opening, and I'd have to drive almost 90 minutes.

Meh, their stores are lame anyway. Wal-Mart is getting my midnight business. :)

Nope, sadly I found out a few days ago that none of the stores where I live will participate, still TRU and KB said they will open at 8:00am so Ill be there early in the morning.

No Wal-Marts, Toysrus or anything within 30 minutes of where i live are opening at midnight, but i will be at WM at 7am the next morning.

04-17-2002, 01:50 PM
I'll be going to which ever store does it, which I think is the one closest to me. I'll probably get there around 11:45 or so. Last time, I went after midnight and still got everything. I don't feel like hanging around the TRU parking for an hour or a day. If I miss anything, there are about 7 Wallys within 20 miles of me.

Mine will be closed, so I'll stop off at the 24 hr. WM instead. Maybe I'll go when they open the next morning in case I can't get something at WM. Paying 11 cents more for a couple of figures isn't going to kill me.

04-17-2002, 04:51 PM
No I won't. I'll just wait until the morning when all the craziness is over and go get them at either Wal-Mart, K-Mart, or Target. They are usually cheaper too.

I went to Wal-Mart when the Episode 1 stuff came out and i got all the figures, And I was the only one there. But I live in the boonies of NC.

if any of the local TRU's are doing it i will go check out all the nerds with shopping carts full of toys.

probably won't buy much though.

04-17-2002, 08:04 PM
Not me either. My local store here in the South West of England is not participating so I'll have to get up early to get to a store before its opening time.

04-17-2002, 08:05 PM
I'm with fourtwo on this one... FREAKS!!!

I'm just going to hit a Wal-Mart in the afternoon and get a few figs.

04-17-2002, 08:27 PM
The two TRUs in Maine are not participating so no.I would probably go just to check it out,and buy everything at Walmart.
I'm going to the 24 hr. Walmart in my area around midnight to get the stuff,just so I can say I did it.

I'll hit the Toys R Us in Burbank...that's what I did last time. I got there around 10pm last time and the line was REDICULOUSLY LOOOOOONG! So I'm thinking I'll get there around 8:30 or 9:00 this time and see how that works out.

How they did it last time, is they would let like 10 people in at a time, so if you were at the back of the line, it took FOREVER to get in...

It's not so much about getting the toys first to me as it is, just being a part of the madness...it's a hoot to people watch at these things...

If any of you in the LA area are planning on going to the Burbank store, let me know...we should meet up!!!
