I was just listening to this week's ForceCast podcast, and they have an interview with Derryl DePriest of Hasbro discussing the big release next week and all of that.  They mention in the discussion that the "midnight madness" is exclusive to TRU.  I wonder if that means that, for example, Wal-Marts can't put their stuff out until later?  I know it will likely make no difference since I'm sure they won't be "policing" the putting out of products anymore once it is officially 7/26, but I just thought that was interesting.  I'm still debating whether to go to TRU or not.  Our local store is actually participating, and I haven't ever gone to a TRU midnight madness event before.

I'm in the same boat Brian - except my "local" store is in another city.  Plus I don't think I want to wait in line for 4-5 hours with a bunch of nerds who are buying small plastic men.

This is my final list of stuff I cannot live without on release day.

Legacy Collection:
Yarna D'al Gargan
Ak-Rev
Mon Calamari Warrior (hopefully multiples)
Quarren Soldier (hopefully multiples)
Scuba Trooper (hopefully multiples)
General Saesee Tiin
Padme Amidala

Clone Wars:
Captain Rex (in 1st Day packaging)

Evolutions:
Rebel Pilots v.1
Rebel Pilots v.2

And hopefully a Spider Droid and some animated Battle Droids, but that'll depend on how much the other stuff ends up costing with tax and how much I have ready to spend.

I'm going after the Legacy Waves, the evolution sets, 1 A-Wing, and 1 Hailfire Droid.

And that's all.   :)

Well due to the checklist coming out and wave 2 legacy being found my list has changed once more.

Legacy:

Yarna
Ewoks
Bane
All of wave 2

$117.34

Clone Wars:

Clone x2
Grevious

$32

Evolution:

Rebel 1
Rebel 2

$67.78

Grand Day 1 total = $217.12

Overall shouldnt be too bad. This pricing is dependent on the fact I can find it as WM as they are cheaper. If I can find anything at zellers I will buy it there cause of my 15% off coupon but my chances for that are slim. What I might do is just buy the evolution and hold them to see if I can find it cheaper at zellers only cause I can save $5 off of them which can be put toward buying the Imp pilot set.
Good thing the A-Wing isnt coming out next week cause that would have set me above my limit for day 1 lol.

As of now:


CW Basic Figures
Battle Droid x3
Clone Trooper x3
Total - $42.00

Vehicles
AT-TE x1
Homing Spider Droid x1
V-19 Starfighter x1
Total - $140.00

Grand Total- $182.00
                  + $100 for whatever else might catch my eye

I feel like I cheated because I picked up most of the Clone Wars figures that I wanted a couple of days ago.
A quick question for the younger folks like myself... how are you guys financing the 26th? Summer jobs, selling old toys, really nice parents, etc. I think it'd be interesting to compare how us younger collectors are going to keep up come next Saturday.

To tell you the truth all the money I work for is going into University so Im not even touching my bank account. Basically everyweek my parents used to give me $20 for lunch. What ever I didnt spend I would stash away. Now I have $400 ready for the 26th lol. So really I have been saving for a couple of months for this day.

Is the A-Wing set to come out? If so that changes my plans for my girlfriend. I want that and the B-Wing then too.

I got a job this summer.

I'm also just gonna hope I have nice parents too, but I wouldn't count on it. ;)

I thought the slide from the announcement had it listed as the same date (only at Wal-Mart of course).  I could be wrong though, I've barely been paying attention for the last 3 months.

EDIT:  The A-wing thread says it's now listed for November.

I do have my own little checklist.  But I can just about be assured the stores will screw it up somehow and not have everything I want.  I can envision a store NOT having the Yarna wave or not having the AT-TE, etc.

Since I have to hit Wal-Mart at midnight Friday I started scoping out the 3 local stores today. All the displays I saw (not all WMs had one) were for Batman, I hope they pull something out of their asses by Friday. :-\
