Online Midnight Madness?
« on: March 28, 2005, 11:59 AM »
Okay, so it turns out I can't go to MM at the stores due to something going on the next day. Does anybody know if any websites are doing MM sales? I only know of SWS.com.

I gotta go to a bachelor party on Saturday that starts at noon... damn I will be very tired from toy shopping...

I don't know about the online midnight madness "sales".... are you wanting to get just good deals, or just want to get the toys?  If you just want to get the toys, they should still have a nice selection on Sunday.   :)

Both really. :) I'd like to find a website selling the toys at around retail price.

And I've found a few websites that are selling figures. I'm kind of leaning towards Entertainment Earth right now. You get 12 figs for $80...

That comes out to $6.66 a figure, plus whatever shipping is there... which will make each figure about $7.50 I think.

I would suggest going to Walmart and save over 2 bucks a figure.  But that's just me.   :)

Is ROTS on Sale at 12:01 at TRU.com and WM.com?

Merging your thread in here Jim!  ;) - M

Forgive me if this has been posted.  Is product going on sale tonight after midnight on either website? 

If it is, I like many others are looking at zero sleep tonight.  Would be nice to know, so I can at least track down some of the figs that may be tough in my neck of the woods.  Vader and the Clones will be toughies.  As will the variant Royal Guards. 

I cant seem to determine who is more excited.  Me or my son.  He was so excited tonight when he saw my local Walmart setting up the aisle long display.

That is a damn good question.

I can't remember where I read it, but I thought that the Wal-Mart Early Bird set was supposed to go on sale online at 8am, likely Eastern time.  I could be totally wrong on that though, unfortunately.

But with so much confusion going on with these exclusives, I don't think anyone is sure about anything right now.

They're up and available at TRU.com.  Up but not available at Walmart.com.  Squat at Target.com.

I was hoping to try and buy one of those Early Bird Sets from walmart.com and ship to a US buddy, but they won't take Canadian billing addresses.  Shoot!

I didn't see it online anywhere Jesse.  I only saw 62 products and some are not available. 

I'm really tempted to order some blue guards from TRU.com, haven't seen those yet.

I managed to order a couple Holo Yodas from TRU/Amazon

But the blue guards were listed as "Not available".  Every other figure up to #44 was available except for the blue guard.  Doh.
