    umm.. any 24 hour walmart???

    I have a spreadsheet check list that I made for DOTM.
    Depending on finances I probably wont spent more then a $100 or $200 bucks on sunday night. With that being the case my focus will be on new movie characters deluxe voyagers and leaders. Cyberverse and Human alliance will be the least important to me. I got lucky and picked up wave 1 deluxes already so as of right now Sunday night focus is as follows:
    Must Haves
    commander Hatchet
    deluxe AUTOBOT TOPSPIN
    Voyager SHOCKWAVE
    Voyager SKYHAMMER
    Leader SENTINEL PRIME

    If money allows:
    Deluxe Sideswipe
    Deluxe Jolt
    All HA basics
    Voyager Megatron
    Leader Ironhide

    Point.

    I was picturing something more like an "event" midnight release, I guess, which I've heard nothing about.

    I work night shift, so I am planning to stay up all night Sunday and swing by my local Target and TRU at opening Monday morning to see what they've got.

    Everything Cyberverse, all Voyagers, a few deluxes (since they'll be EVERYWHERE for awhile), Leader Sentinel and all the HA basics. Maybe Roadbuster.
    Also, hopefully all the exclusives as well.

    Please excuse my ignorance, I've been avoiding DOTM toy news to keep from spoiling the movie, but aren't these already released? I've seen most of them on store shelves already...

    I have a 20% off coupon for toysrus so im waiting till they open to get my leader sentinel prime. Then I have a 50 dollar target gift card, so I will be getting most of my figures there. I may pop up to walmart to try to pickup another megatron.

    24 hour Wal-Marts are a disappointment. They usually don't put the new stuff out until the next morning or afternoon.

    For the last two Transformers movies,TRU never had a midnight madness even like Star Wars.A Walmart supercenter
    might be your only option.

    I'd expect to be disappointed if I went their at midnight. There is no special event, they will bring them out like any other product

    Yup, same here, cause down the road, everyone who went crazy buying DOTM toys just for the excitment of it is going to be posting their unwanted items in the sales thread.

    Oh, not mine. The Ashland, Ohio Wal-Mart had black plastic draped over the ROTF display up until midnight. Once Midnight hit, they pulled the plastic down. I even helped!

    But, I will not be doing that again. It was fun and all, but a waste of time considering how long the initial wave stuff sits and is plentliful. It's the later waves that are hit or miss, grab or miss out.

    Plus, I ended up exchanging nearly 100% of them when they went on their deep discounts (Leaders down as low as 25 bucks at one point). I will be picking up the first wave when I can, all characters from the Movie, and Skyhammer, minus DOTM Skids. Hate that new mold. Coloring is awesome, mold sucks.
