Doesn't appear to be working - at least not in Houston area. Pasadena(TX) store is only one listed in area and there are only 3 cars currently in the parking lot waiting - including mine. Maybe late arrivers?

Yeah, turned out to be a complete FUBAR. Never opened, couldn't tell if any employees were in the store or not - security gate/shield was down. Knew I should have asked those last 2 employees I saw leaving if that store was really doing a Midnight opening.

Needless to say, the dozen or so people that did show up weren't happy. Someone even tried calling the store # a few times - no answer.

They probably didn't even send out an email, informing managers and employees of the midnight opening.

Maybe everyone who showed up will get a GC for $10 or something. Just imagine driving 20+ miles to a location and have them not opening. I'd be rather pissed.

Oh man, I'd print out the store list from the site and bring it in tomorrow and complain alot. They're bound to pretty much give it to you for free :P

They are in the big true blood display that has all the shirts and dvd's. They are at the very bottom. That display might have only lasted a week though.

They were in the True Blood display and they also had them in the cooler with the other sodas and vitamin water.

Yes, did get 6 copies. Was picking up for some other folks who couldn't make it. It was nice they showcased different cards through the keyhole so people could see what it looks like, but that also confused many until they read closely that all 6 cards are in each copy.

I thought they were different covers too. Until I slipped off the slip sleeve in the store. And saw that it was just a package of cards on the front.
