I doubt anyone is gonna listen, but after seeing what happened at the last two with certain figures, here's what I think should happen to give everyone a fair chance, and dissuage scalpers/hoarders/army builders just for one night:
Impose a limit of only 1 or 2 of each figure per person that night (preferably one, so that someone can't bring 5 friends just to clear out a peg of 12 figures for him/herself). This way, whether your first or fiftieth on line, you'll have a chance to at least get one of each. Then, anyone wanting multiples would have to go back the next day, and get whatever they want. I'm sure there are many who will say that they should be allowed to get as many as they want, but perhaps if there is a limit enforced for just this one night, you'll see less fighting and more collectors actually helping each other. And while it won't stop scalpers, maybe it'll at least deter a few of the ones who were planning on going alone.
