It’s away! 8 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. 4/2/2005
At 8 a.m. the doors open. Everyone had their job. My wife was to get the gift cards and to hand them out to people (except rude lady). I was to hit the toy aisle for the cup and figure sets. My in laws were to get their figures. Go! We did marvelous.
I got 2 of each cup. I wanted 4 Clones, but I only got 2. They only had 3 and I missed one of them. I also got the micro machines. My wife came back to meet me with a cart and we were off. My wife got the beanie Clone Trooper and some “Tin Sets” which look like pen and paper sets with a collectible tin. Then we got our Vaders. By the time I got my Vader they were letting people have 2, so I got 2. In addition our friends from Perkins came and got one for themselves. My posse got a total of 14 of the 36 lava Vaders, of which I came home with 8. That was 3 more than I wanted, I will use them for trades. Two of those 14 were for my wife’s friend’s one year old daughter, so she has a token of the biggest event in her first year. In addition, she finally was validated as being a “person” and got her ticket. The 1 year old got the last Lava Vader in the store.
