Midnight Madness 3
« on: February 15, 2004, 12:57 AM »
How many of you guys will be waiting in line frezzing your ass off for 5 hours to get all the first EPIII figures, i know i will, but i found these pics over at Artoosnews.com to relive the moment, but was wondering if your guys would tell me the experince you had with Midnight Madness 1 and 2, i was not able to attend 1 but maed it too 2. I would enjoy to here your stories.









I am really looking forward to the next Midnight Madness!!

I fear physical harm from Midnight madness, so I probobly will not go.

Actually, I might, seeing as it will be the last one.

I'm dreading seeing the leftovers of MM3 for the rest of my life. Like MM2.

Well,MM2 was very pleasurable.I over anticipated the crowd though.I waited 2 hours alone for the figures. :-\

But,when people did show up,it was cool,though we were all tired.I was so tired figs were falling off the pegs when I got them. ::)

Midnight Madness 2 for Attack of the Clones was not bad at all, and i live in the town where George Lucas grew up and if anything we have the most Star Wars fans, and the TRU was not participating in the Midnight event so the hot spots were Wal-Mart and when i went at 11:30pm, i was the 4th person in line, then the lines got heavy about 15 mins before 12:01, 30 to 40 people were in line, and the funniest thing was, i only got 7 figures, since i was only 14 people were crowding in front of me, but i still; got what i wanted.  But you know what was really funny, there was this guy trying to act like he was in a handicap wheelchair, he used the store one that is mechanical and was in the front of the line and when they let all of us attack the section of toys, he jumped out of the wheelchair and was on his feet, it was so hilarious, so i might plan to do that this time around, he was hogging all the figures too, but whatever.  It aint gonna be like that next year, cuz i will be inline at 10:00 so i will get all the good stuff. Know i wonder what the cards are going to look like for the EPIII line?

E2 didn't really have a midnight madness here.  Most people went to Wal-Mart stores to get what they wanted, and while WM had the area roped off, most of us went in and got what we wanted when we got there.

My WM had only me and about 6 others, 2 of which were "significant others" buying for loved ones.  Not many collectors, and nobody I even knew from the local collecting group even.

There wasn't a MM here for E2. I doubt there will be one for E3.

I'll just stroll into TRU the next morning and score what I need.
