    That's awesome. I have nothing but excellent memories of Midnight madness for the AOTC figures. Spending about 400 bucks, eating at steak n' shake and then a lightsaber duel in my apartment courtyard with my friends as the sun came up. Sadly, i'm at school now and that won't happen this year, but still, it would be a blast!!

    29 Figures...Holy geez.

    Won't be so bad I guess, I have fond memories of my Wal-Mart "Midnight Madness" visits...like, me being the only one there so I could choose at my own pace what figs I wanted. Hope that happens again, it's lonely sure but hey...in '99 it was a madhouse at TRU, I wouldn't want to repeat that again- especially not with 29 figs being release!

    Boy oh boy! There's nothing finer than knocking a bunch of little kids down to get the best toys!

    Well, that's not much more than the 27 figures released for AOTC midnight madness. I never go to these things. What are you guys finding at midnight that I can't get the next day at a reasonable hour?

    Blast from the past - pics of the huge AOTC display I secretly took at TRU a day or two after midnight madness in 2002:

    Case-Fresh figures with barely a speck of dust on them, literally. When I went to Wal-Mart April 26th at 11:50PM, they hadn't put the figures out yet. My mom and I decided to walk around until they did, and around 12:05 we came back and a whole display was set up. It was beautiful.

    Re: Midnight Madness announcement.

    I didn't attend either Midnight, Madness. The first one occurred when I was living in L.A.. The sure ammount of toys being released led me to not fear being able to pick up what i wanted the following day. I was stunned to see that there was nothing to be found except a couple of Koosh Balls and a Ric Olie--my first and only Ep. 1 figure for about 2 weeks.

    They didn't do a Midnight Madness where I was living when AOTC came out. the next day I hit Wal-Mart expecting it to be empty as well. I was the only person in the very full SW section. I found everything including beasts, and vehicles except for Yoda and Dexter Jettster, which I was able to pick up a week alter at K-Mart.

    I don't know if they'll have one where I am now, where there are clearly aggresive SW buyers, as I seem to find stuff weeks after everyone else is (at least I'm finding it).

    I have no fears of missing the initial waves of ROTS stuff. If anything, depending on what I have to spend, I may skip the figures altogether and just buy the vehicles, beats, whatever, and pick up the figures later. One look at a KB toys should show just how easy those figures will be to find even years later--for less than 50% of the original price.

    Well I attended both and enjoyed them. I will be at this one as well and can't wait. I guess i will be saving up starting now.

    Oh, I would like to attend one but here in Mexico no store makes that...so I can only imagine it.

    Thanks for the pics Ji'dai,
    That brings back some memories. I didn't do midnight madness for AOTC because of the anarchy I experienced at the TPM one. When I went to TRU the next day, it looked just like your pictures, and I ended up getting all the figures I wanted except Dooku (which showed up within a few weeks).

    I won't be going to the ROTS one either, but I will be hitting the stores up the day after.
