    So tomorrow I'm not getting out of work until 5, and with driving home and getting changed and driving to TRU/Target it will probably be like 6 or 6:30 by the time I get there.

    What if there aren't any good RotF toys left?!

    Someone, give me comforting words! Tell me "oh they've got plenty of them in anticiaption of big sales".

    Reassure meeee! :p

    Don't worry you'll be fine. I always get the same way, just to get there and the place is fully stocked.

    We've got a mega event release with a street date so that means instead of the trickle of shipments coming in the stores have been able to stock pile for the event which should improve your odds.

    The movie toys are a mixed bag among collectors so you don't have to compete against every collector in your area which also improves your chances.

    They haven't been advertising the street date very hard so most kids and parents will not know about the release date giving you a nice shot at the figures before kids start getting the figures.

    If something is so popular that it sells out on the first day it will likely be released again in later waves or get a paint upgrade for a later release so you will be able to get the figure at some point.

    If you don't get everything on list day one but get a good haul anyway then you have things you could still look for instead of just waiting for the later waves to get released. If you got say 5 cool toys instead of 6 cool toys that would still be great day for you as a collector.

    I'm already at the store buying your toys....

    Seriously my walmart broke "5:00 pm" release today no problem.
    I guess its because we did'nt get a advertised event.

    Lot's of stuff though I bought $300 worth; but you could still have gone back to the store to buy exactly what I did.

    I'm pretty sure that if you're not able to buy them today or Saturday then you'll probably never see them anywhere ever again.

    Yeah, I doubt you're going to have any trouble finding stuff. Judging from everything I've heard, stores have learned their lesson from under-ordering the last movie line and have ordered craploads of these figures to sell. Stuff might be a little hard to find for a few days due to the initial rush, but restocks should be quick and plentiful.

    I highly doubt you'll have any trouble finding anything with this line. I'd hope Hasbro learned their lesson from the first movie line and is making more than enough toys with better distribution. Granted, the chance of that is 50-50 but I'm still not all that worried.

    And here _I_ was afraid that there wouldn't be anything _but_ ROTF to buy over the next year or two.

    They got tons of them where I live, but don't worry! They'll be restocking the shelves with EVEN MORE. The good ones might be gone, but just be prepared, search behind the cruddy ones for treasure!
