As promised, we are about to dedicate a certain segment of our poll topics to discussing each of our own experiences at acquiring all the brand new toys.
This past Tuesday, on April 23 at 12 o'clock am the doors flew open to thousands of collectors who clamored to get up to 27 different action figures, 3 not previously-released-vehicles, 3 more 12" Action Collection figures, 4 Deluxe Characters, role play toys including 3 electronic lightsabers, and a Beast collection creature!
For most, it would be difficult collecting it all without spending upwards of $450.00 (at least!).
We're going to start looking at Midnight Madness by asking "How many collectors showed up at your chosen Toys R Us store for its special Midnight opening on the 23rd?"
Then let's discuss how long you waited.
Were there people in costume?
Was the media there reporting?
What were people doing to entertain themselves?
How was the weather?
How kind or competative were the crowds before the doors flew open?
What kinds of people did you see waiting for toys? (collectors, those your own age, moms, dads, and kids, suspicious characters, known dealers and scalpers? Who was there?)
