This reminds me of something similar actually...

Years ago I worked at a bookstore during two major release events... At least major at the time. I remember when the first expansion cards for the Magic game came out. Mike (the shop owner) brought in everyone who worked there and they were lined up outside the door. When we opened you'd think we were selling concert tickets! They bought box after box... Never mind the individual packs.

Then there was the whole Death Of Superman thing. It was cool and controlled 'till the local newspapers and TV started talking about the event just a few weeks before the comic's release and we had to field call after call wanting one. We were on a 3 month pull schedule so everyone of our regular customers already had theirs coming but we weren't putting any copies on the shelf. The people who came in looking for one could have filled a decent sized dance club!
