    I would never queue for another console again after standing outside toys r us last year from 5 in the morning to get a Wii. I managed to get one and all the kids do is fight over it

    I remember queueing outside Toys 'r' Us one Xmas about 12 years ago to get Teletubbie toys. :roll: :giggle:

    i queued for 2 piggin furbys years ago, never again!!:giggle:

    My dad managed to get a playstation 1 the christmas it came out, he kept walking in to shops and asking if they had one and the assistants were all laughing at him! Asked in Makro and was told very quietly that they were getting some the next morning. He had to get up at about 4am, and when he got it they put it in a cardboard box from something else because they said otherwise he would have been mugged for it!

    me too, :thumbsup:

    When i was a student, i used to work at Toys R us.
    Does anyone remember, Tracy Island, from the Thunderbirds, and the stock shortages? Well i used to trip over the damn things that were stored out of site in the Staff Only area on the way to the Staff Canteen upstairs. That was a very bitter experience for me, and made me very cynical about stock shortages.

    Only thing i've queued for was the last harry potter book - and that wasnt even in flaming short supply!

    Back in the furby rush while people were queing outside toys r us *shop* the old shopping channel where struggling to sell them as no1 was watching tv they were all queing. Thats how I got one lol. ooo the good ole' days.

    I try not to que for stuff I do phone runs instead to find stuff.

    Oh tho like tomm i qued at all midnight harry potter releases hehe

    I got my Wii on release day last year from Argos, I can't believe Wiis are still in short supply and people are queueing for them! :w00t:

    Got my release one from Comet in Croydon. The guy who sold it to me told me that they only had 5 pre-orders whereas everywhere else in the known universe had masses of pre-orders.
