The wait became far duller after the car accident. A man with two more children came and the kids kept racing and playing tag. A few other collectors showed up, but at 11:30 the line was only 10 people long. Then a car arrived with three people who appeared to be drunk ass holes. It turns out they were local wrestlers. They tried to take my place in line, but I ignored them and they went away. Then they kept saying they knew the manager and they were getting Yodas, not people in line. This had me nervous but I kept quiet.
About 11:45 the line got pretty long. Iíd say only 50 people in all, but it was quite a growth from 10 people 15 minutes earlier. A LOT shorter than back in 1999 where there were 400 or more people buying toys, but this year there were many places having midnight sales; in 1999 there was only TRU.
Then the manager came with the coupons. One per family. Fortunately I donít know my wife, so we each got 1. I was not complaining. I wanted a total of 4 Yodas, and I was offering to buy some off the family behind me for $20 each, but when each family only got one Yoda the sale was off. Oh well, at least my wife and I each had one.
