Hope I'm not overstepping here but I thought it would be good to get a nice central thread going for any amusing anecdotes/tales of terror from tonight, as well as interesting or noteworthy finds, discounts, etc. Also feel free to post your plans for tonight as it's always interesting to hear what other peeps are doing.
I had originally planned to get together with two other friends who are both collectors, but it sounds like we are likely bailing on that plan now due to a combination of family obligations/weather/sickness/etc. Not to mention a sort of general malaise. The only thing I really want that I'm not confident I can find tomorrow is the TRU 6" Hovertank Pilot. But it's not worth waiting 3+ hours in the rain just to find out they sold out in the first 5 minutes or never got them in the first place.
So my new plan is to maybe hit up a closeby Walmart tonight and maybe pick up the Imperial Speeder if I see it on the off-chance that Target doesn't carry this out of the gate. Then wake up early and hit a few Targets on the way in to work to use both of those coupons on the A-Wing, more 6" stuff, Rebels Season 2 DVD, etc.
I am thinking seriously about placing a big order on TRU.com too, since their current sale prices match the after-coupon price per figure I would be paying at Target. Just irked that they don't have the Hovertank Pilot up on the site yet, the way the Snowtrooper guy was available for preorder for last year's FF.
I do expect more than a few "ripples in the Force" coming up too. Targets around here have showed zero signs of prepping so far, and I find it a little hard to believe they will all magically have their aisles reset by 8am tomorrow when the doors open with all the new stuff on display. Just like I find it hard to believe that at 12:01am every Walmart computer will update instantly to allow the proper ring-up, pricing and sale of the new stuff. I foresee many possible checkout line frustrations...
Oh, and for the record, I am hoping to pick up all of the following: new 6" wave, A-Wing, Rebels Imperial Speeder x2, an extra Sabine, the Titanium Helmet 2-pk with Sabine's dome, and maybe the 12" animatronic Kanan, although that one smells destined for clearance already to me.
