Haha, no way!
Maybe for some figures
Haha, no way!
If MotUC would be sold in stores...
Would you sleep in front of the store (the night before release date) to be the first or one of the first to get your figure(s)?
i wouldnt. Sorry, I'm not that hardcore.
People sleep peaceably at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
No because chances are the figures would not be there anyway!
Well, Wal-Mart is where I do most of my toy shopping, so sleeping in front of the store would be sort of...stupid. But I would totally be there that night when they stocked them!

Well, maybe if it was in a store near a beach in Honolulu ... but otherwise; Hell NO!

I voted yes!
Although, if they were sold in stores, I doubt I'd have trouble getting them. I most likely wouldn't even need to sleep in front of the store. I'd just show up when the store opened and get as many as I wanted!!
After all, these figures aren't PS3's and I wouldn't expect many people to be waiting all night or even an hour before the store opened.
Besides, I don't want them to be sold in stores where they overstocked the pegs and have some grubby kids slaming them down the floor!
Also, it's bad enough you get to compete online, but if you get them from the stores, then you have to compete with the workers there too! Just like the old times with the 200X line, so NO! Thank You!

I don't think so.

Actually, after what happened with Merman, I would probably go to a store at 7.00 if it would open at 9.00. If there would be a line, of course...
I am also online about 2 hours before, so.. that sort of the same right?
I live in Spain and the distribution of the 200x figures was ABSOLUTELY C**P so I hope this line DOESN'T get to retail (thats how you say it in english?) if this means that mattycollector is going to disapear. If the line is selling through brick markets only, I'm sure I won't be able of having those toys. Maybe the point of MotUC is that everyone in every country can get them without problems using mattycollector

Although I'm one for being on-line right as the new figures are released to place my order, I wouldn't sleep in front of a shop.
And as popular as the line is, I don't think it would really require that anyway.

We really couldnt do this even if we wanted to as mass market retailers do not stock toys in such a manner.
But, to answer the question: absolutely not.
I wouldnt be as worried about some figures selling out as some main a listers.
Skeleton-Warriors, Ra-Jar, Spinwit, Rock Golem, General Tartaran, Hawke, Slob-Boar, King Agho, Hunga the Harpy, Sh'gora, Masks of Power Demons, Nocturna, Lizzor, Sagitar, Crimson Fury, Lodar, Vizar, Angast, Negator, King Miro, Melaktha, Crystal-Man, ABC Giants, Stridor, Road Ripper, Land Shark
The white screen of death is as about as inconvenient as I'll go to get these at regular prices.
I'd pay the eBay resellers handsomely so I can sleep comfortably at home.
I used to do it for Star Wars exclusives.

It's best to pre-order or subscribe to guarantee yourself a fig. Sure beats long lines and the possibility of the item in question being sold out at the store.
I doubt it would be neccessary. But I would be there that day.
I might wait in line to be there when the store opens, but sleeping in front of the store seems excessive.
Sorry, no. I've always had a little more of real life going on to do that! Also, I've eventually found just about every 'chase' item I've ever really wanted, at manageable cost, so I sort of look funny at those people...
AUDACIEUX ET TENACE
If they were in stores, then I'd enjoy hunting for them whenever I stop at a toy store.
