Went to both MM so far...
EP1 - Went with my wife and step-son. My wife was really supportive and my step-son had a blast. We weren't anywhere near the front of the line that formed outside the Toms River, NJ - TRU so when we got in, things like the 12" Maul were LONG gone. Was able to get everything else, even the Battledroid variants in duplicate w/o any problem.
EP2 - The TRUs in NJ that opened for MM were scaled back to almost none - my options were Freehold, NJ or Elizabeth, NJ - the second one is the one that can be seen from the NJ Turnpike off exit 13A. This time around, I went really early with my step-son and we started the line - we ended up being there for six hours before they re-opened for MM. We were the first ones in the door, even got a copy of Sansweet's SW Action Figure guide as a bonus. Didn't have any problem finding everything I needed. Even was able to get the figures in the Dooku wave and picked up all of the background variants.
For EP3, I'm skeptical that TRU is even going to do it in NJ this time around. Our WalMarts aren't open 24 hours so I may have no choice but to pick a store and be there on the morning of April 2nd. My current "plan" is to hit Toms River, NJ WalMart at 7 AM when it opens, grab as many figures as I can for $5.88 and then swing over to the Target around the corner by 8 AM and pick up enough to grab myself a couple of the Red Chromed Vaders. After that if I haven't been able to grab everything that is supposed to be out on the 2nd, I'll grab some breakfast and wait for the Toms River TRU to open at 10AM and pick up what I still need there. Unless I hear that TRU is also going to be charging $5.99, I'm probably not even going to investigate what TRUs will be open at midnight.
