Ouch! And I thought £13 for the LC characters at Argos was bad.

In other news, I just got sent my code from GAME to claim my free Giant, so everyone who's ordered from GAME should go and check their e-mail.

Yeah, I was trying Thumpback too.

...Well, it's a shame that they won't have it fixed until tomorrow, because that means the figure won't arrive until Monday unless you pay an extra £4 for postage.

Sorry, I probably held Damien up for you guys.

My order got cancelled again, so I'm going to forgo having the Dark Edition and buy elsewhere. I'll use all my GAME points and then they don't exist to me any more.

I've just ordered Skylanders SwapForce: Triple Pack A from Amazon Italy for only 19.68 euros....which works out only around £16.70 or so smilie Paid by Halifax Clarity credit card so I get charged 0 conversion fees etc

Bargain price for it here at 12.90 euros + 7 postage, with no customs to pay from Italy smilie

http://www.amazon.it/Skylander...ap+force+triple

I went though all the other stuff on there, but nothing else on the Italy site works out as good as compared to the UK using the various £5 off codes....about to compare the germany site now, as they have the double packs available for 25 euros with 4 euro postage too

Just home from setting up the stock at my TRU

From memory here's a breakdown

2x legendarys
6x swappables
2x triple packs
6x series 2/3 figures
5x lightcore
Fiery Forge Battle pack
Tower of Time pack

No demo portal or extra display items :-(
Just lots and lots of stock :-)

LC Hex looks really good, comes in a nice presentation box with the poster and upgrade card inside

Thanks for the heads up on that pricing. Just ordered one myself. Rude not to.

The Argos double pack is interesting, although too expensive, however this one intrigues me more:

glad to see some people saving a few quid from it smilie I also added it on hotukdeals here http://www.hotukdeals.com/deal...pending-1683330

Lets hope its not a misprice and gets cancelled. Yeah I'm puzzled as to what that one is - hopefully in the morning all the links will be showing the full info. I'm trying to decide whether to just order the full lot from elsewhere right now smilie Umpteen orders especially with TRU and the £5 off codes each time.

Might chance ordering that Lightcore Roller Brawl on Game....no pics etc, might be a mistake....could turn out to be an exclusive for them, but surprised theres not more info on it if thats the case

Asda is cheapest by far.

Swap figures - £13
Core characters - £8
Lightcore - £10
Triple packs/Adventure/Battle packs - £19.97

Cheaper than Sainsburys even with my staff discount. Don't know about starter pack prices though.

ASDA need to hurry up and get all their figures online so I can snag an Enchanted Hoot Loop! Same goes for Toys R Us with the Legendary figures, I need click and collect!

Tesco have everything online now, but don't appear to have any exclusives unless they're in-store only at the moment. Pricing is almost as good as ASDA too.

Even at £20, I'm still unsure of picking up the Adventure Pack now. Part of me thinks I should because they can often become hard to find, but at the same time, I think they're still overpriced.

I was trying to avoid paying postage, but I guess a £5 code would work for that. Is it one anyone can use?

Anyone spotted this Lightcore Rollerbrawl posting at GAME. I assume it's a mistake:

if you spend over £30 and use the code BIRTHDAY8 it will take £5 off.

Also over £30 will get you free delivery.

So....add the 2 x Legendarys and one of the £9 figures to take it over the limit......Free Delivery and £5 off - job done smilie

Also you can use that code multiple times on different orders if have eye on other things too

I'm pretty sure they cocked up the listing. Argos used to group Skylanders under one listing, then when you picked while you were in store. For Giants they moved away from that. It looks to me like they accidentally put both double packs under one listing as well as creating a second listing. My money at the moment is on one listing being Fire/Grilla, one being Night/Jet. I've reserved one of each listing.

grrrr just had my Tesco Wii U Swap Force starter pack delivered. Blast Zone is really bad loads of chipped paint very poor job - guess it's a trip to Tesco for me later. Hope they have a replacement Wii U set

Also, just had a call from other half in Asda at the moment. She reckons they haven't got Enchanted Hoot Loop in store, and the lady looked through the list of whats available etc and nothing on their records about it. But in our store they're only just putting the stuff out now!!

Crappy news about Blast Zone. I found ASDA were the same with Giants last year, in that they were really slow putting stock out on shelves, where as Tesco had stuff out at midnight.

Just got mine from TRU Pre-order.
Not happy. They shipped in a giant jiffy bag, so it's mostly crushed.
Looking at Blast Zone through the packet he doesn't look very good quality at all. From what I have seen the quality has dropped dramatically on SF compared to SSA or Giants.
Will examine them later when I get home (work atm) but it's not looking good.

Just received my 3DS version through the post. LC Hex, the code card and the poster all come in a nice gift box. I might call to Argos later to see if I can get the Fire Kraken pack. I would reserve but the website isn't very clear which catalog number I should use. I'll write down both catalog numbers and call in later.

So, I spoke to game on their chat about not being able to order the free giant. They told me that if I order the giant and pay for next day delivery then go back onto chat they would refund me the £4.95 delivery. But id would take 5-10 working days to go back onto my card. So i'd suggest doing this if you want to.

@Nroc-Nuika Yea. Really upset that it didn't come today seeing as it was shipped 3 days ago. Still, im off to buy me some figures anyway.

Got him £350 which he spent today on a Wii Starter Pack, Tower of Time, 4 core, 3 Lightcore, 4 swappers and the 2 double packs from Argos. Oh and Enchanted Hoot Loop with the 2 Legendary figures on order from TRU.

Lord knows what he'll have to sell next year lol.
