    Midnight Madness Question

    When Should I head to my Local TRU that is participating in MM? I live in Houston, and this will be my first Midnight Madness. Thanks

    I showed up for the Ep. 1 midnight madness at about 11:30, and I was among the first three groups let into the store. Most people didn't seem to show up until just before midnight or just after. If Ep. 2 midnight madness is anything like the first one, then there should be plenty of toys to go around!

    Back in EP1 the major hot hard to come by item was the 12" Darth Maul. This was my main objective - I got to TRU at 10pm and was about the 10th person thru the doors and I got one of about 4 they had. I don't know of any major item this time around so I might well show up the next morning!

    I'd go to Wal-Mart, last time alot of people weren't expecting Wal-Mart to have them at Midnight I guess. I'm sure there will be more people than last time, but should be no biggy.

    I'm hitting my Wal-Mart early in the morning. I figure all the hardcore guys will hit Midnight madness and be sleeping at around 7-8 am, plus, I don't think there are any real rare figures this time around, so everyone should be able to get what they want.

    Hardest to get one should be Dooku, only 2 per case in 1 case if your Wal-Mart is getting any cases of it at all.

    Last MM I didn't go because it was on a Sunday and I make it a practice not to shop on Sundays so I went to TRU at like 5 am. They were totally cleaned out of C3, DM, and there was one Ani left. I went to WM at 8 and they had tons of every freaking figure and at cheaper prices.

    This time around I think WM will be the best place to shop if the local TRU won't be open at 12. They should have the 2 POTJ vehicles and I'm betting a bunch of POTJ figures like the Boshek wave. Plus if you can't get everything you want, i.e., Hangar Ani or Count Dooku, TRU will probably have them once they open and their prices are pretty much the same as WM's.

    I have a feeling people are going to be killed at my local Wal-Mart during midnight madness; what with the narrow aisles already clogged with mis-placed items all over the floor, and pallets blocking the way! (Sorry again Dar'Argol Maybe you would invite me to your Wal-Mart to shop.)

    I showed up at 1130 too, got in and found everything, but one figure I yhink...it was fun, but my TRU is lame and will not do Midnite madness again...you should be ok rolling in late if you want. Though go out to dinner and make a night out of it...
