Hello everybody!

I'm faced with a decision to make. Tomorrow night I'll will be heading up the road but to where I do not know. My local Wal-Mart, Target, and TRU are each but a few miles from eachother, and I haven't the slightest clue where to start first. Each store has it's own exclusives, but aside from what I may miss due to the rush of things, each store will be selling the same things. The only real difference is that I got that Target coupon for $1 off each figure bought. Which really won't help me unless I buy a lot of Hasbro figures, but since I'm going for mostly Lego I doubt I'll have much room. So I'm pretty sure I want to start out at Le Target. But where do you guys think I should go second? Oh and my spending limit is just over 50 bucks, I think.

Well, for starters, consider who will be open. TRU's the only one doing an actual midnight shindig, right?

Also, Wal*Mart's tent party will be taking place from 8 AM to 4 PM. So that should help you figure out what time you want to be at which place. Smile

WalMart's tent thing, 48 Hours of the Force, is only going to be at certain stores.


All 3 stores will be opening at 12.

You think all three will be open at 12 midnight tonight, right? I thought that's what was going on as well.

So all three chains are opening at midnight in your area? That's awesome, I didn't even know Target was doing that.

Regarding Wal*Mart... they're open 24 hours, right?

Only Super Wal-Marts are open 24 hours. I think the rest close at 9 or 10.
(and yes, there are some regular wal-marts still around Wink )

So that accounts for Wal*Marts and TRU... Any word or Target being open or closed at midnight tonight?

I don't think so. TRU and Target both have exclusive action figures, and Wal*Mart supposedly has an exclusive action figure carry case. Dunno anything more than that.

If Target is doing Midnight Madness, please let me know. I had no idea Target was doing this. My local Wal*Mart is doing this (But we're an anit-Walmart family) but the TRU isn't in Arizona.

If Target's not not open at midnight, I'll go tomorrow instead, but this IS the last Midnight Madness!

Target is definately opening at migdnight, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten the coupons in the mail. For the rest of you collectors out there, here's a checklist put together by Rebelscum of everything that will be available:

Back from the "madness," though I'm hesitant to call it that... Wink My Target and Wal*Mart were most definitely closed tonight, but TRU had the bodies a'packed in. It was insane right at midnight, but I hung around for a while talking with some friends and by 1 am the TRU was almost deserted except for the employees. At that point their stock was ridiculously plentiful, there were boxes upon boxes of all the LEGO sets as well as action figures, lightsabers, vehicles, etc.

No sign of any promotions or any of the giveaways, even at midnight, but it was neat just to see that sort of a mad rush. I ended up getting a few clone walkers and Vader's transformation as well as an Aayla figure. All in all a fun trip, thogh I did have to step back at first and just laugh at the very Wall-Street-esque pushing and shoving that was going on at first. ::D:

I just got back too. Picked up 70 worth of Lego, the Grievous Unleashed figure, and Grievous' bodyguard basic figure. I had a blast tonight. It was awesome. Amd I made a ton of friends too. Well and I guess it helps that I showed up and hour early.

Oh and my local Target was closed too. And my TRU was not giving out the holo Yoda figure.

No promotion or giveaway anything like that. I should have gone to the bed instead of driving up there. Chilled around for 10 mins and left. The people were picking up the figures like they were only selling for 1 cent. This morning I went to WM and they are selling those figures for 30 cent less than TRU. But it's still good to see the Star Wars manic has come back again~~~!!!

Well, TRU and Target were closed, and I wasn't going to go to Wal-Mart. Yick, not even for Midnight madness would I go there.
