Did you guys have it in with regular post? And with my Pokémon X pre-order bonus they shipped it separately and I received it the next day!

Their online support is down, so I sent them an e-mail asking questions. I'll post my response when I get it - for now, I have to go down to Argos to pick up the figures.

Still waiting on my Dark edition preorder....only thing left to come now. Hope the hex pack comes with it!!

As for my Giants code. It still doesn't work. The guy has now passed my info to a manager, who has emailed another team...so I have to wait up to a couple of working days to hear back....a bit annoying considering some people have just had theirs overridden there and then

My dark edition just arrived and it didn't come with lightcore hex or the card. However I did get lightcore hex and the card free from amazon because I got the regular starter pack from there. But I'm disappointed Game didn't send it with my Dark edition.

Just got back from Argos. I took both catalog numbers with me and explained that I wasn't sure which one to use for the pack that I wanted so they let me see both packs so I could pick the one with Fire Kraken and Grilla Drilla in it. In the Gift Guide catalog I picked up the double packs are priced at £29.99 but I paid £24.99.

What is your secret!



All his Power Rangers were superb condition and boxed, one even went for £50. 80 Ben 10 figures fetched £180 but there was other stuff too. Research the sold prices before you list, use Buy It Now wherever possible and be patient. We've been selling his old stuff since August and probably still has nearly £100 of gear still listed.

Yeah, I discovered that the "Argos Exclusive" one had Fire Kraken and Grilla Drilla in it and the other one just had Night Shift and Boom Jet.

Looks like the Game website was a mistake on Lightcore Rollerbrawl.

http://www.game.co.uk/en/light...htcore#overview

The link info now is still Lightcore Roller Brawl, but the title is now Lightcore Grim Creeper, but still has half the information for Rollerbrawl.

I got home from hunting to find my 3DS and DE starters had been delivered. My UFO card wasn't in my TRU pre-order but im not toooo fussed about that. Also couldn't find Nitro at Tesco so will have to keep checking back at my local store.

I've also decided to store my SwapLanders in a different way than I had planned. Separating the top and bottom halves. Magnets do not lose force over time do they?

Go onto their website and select contact: web chat. When it askes you to select why you want to contact them chose 'web problems'. The person I dealt with fixed it straight away. Just told me to select and pay for next day delivery then give him the order number and he refunded me the £4.95.

Interestingly in the dispatch email it said this

Quote:
Your order has been shipped from the UK and Hermes courier tracking number is 9243572275412759.


so looks like they have the common sense to send the physical item direct from the UK......top stuff

#368 Posted: 19:23:47 18/10/2013
Out of curiosity....is the Nitro at Tesco meant to be a single pack...or is it like the US and Germany, where it is only available in a double, making you buy either Rattle Shake or Free Ranger too?
Sunny Castanets Gold Sparx Gems: 2231
#369 Posted: 20:45:09 18/10/2013
Is Nitro DEFINITELY in Tesco, then? My Tesco had seriously downsized their Skylanders display and there was very little there.

Just back from my local Tesco and could only find the Starter Pack on shelves. No sign of the figures, but they also have a section upstairs dedicated to them, although that's off limits at night. Decided to order the Nitro/Rattle pack from Amazon.de instead.

I went right out as soon as I finished work yesterday and Most places had cleared out all the starter sets.

I got Enchanted Hoot Loop and normal Magna charge but I had intended on getting a 3DS starter, nobody had it!
Will have another look when I get the chance but for now I have 4 swappers to play.
Wynne1975 Blue Sparx Gems: 854
#374 Posted: 17:23:23 19/10/2013
Argos have put the price up on their wave 2 swappers double packs, now £29.99.

Nitro Magna Charge in double packs in US too, not just here. I'd imagine the manufacturer decides on pack size and sells them to the highest bidding retailers.
Nroc-Nuika Hunter Gems: 4946
#375 Posted: 18:05:10 19/10/2013
Yup, I reserved both yesterday when they were bot 25, got them today both for 30. Really quite unfair. Needless to say I was pretty peeved.

I'm glad I got the Argos Fire Kraken double pack yesterday then when it was 24.99.
I went around looking for Skylanders today. Asda had a lot of Enchanted Hoot Loops in. There was a better selection though in Tesco Extra which also had the Nitro Magna Charge packs in. I bought Slobber Tooth and nearly bought LC Flashwing but the paint on all of them was bad. I'll wait until I see a better painted LC Flashwing.

I found that the LC Flashwing is painted terribly, too. I'm still looking to buy her but not while they're all bad looking. I've not actually bought all the figures I originally intended to, purely because I'm pedantic about paint jobs. I ordered the Nitro Magna Charge double pack (with Free Ranger) from Amazon.de, since I doubt our Tesco will have it. My Free Ranger with the 3DS starter wasn't brilliant in places which is why I chose that, and I can take the best parts and sell/trade the other.

Bit aggravating about Argos upping their prices; will those packs come out elsewhere? I've been trying to buy from ASDA where I can because the prices are the cheapest there.

I also got my Dark Edition today. £36, thanks to a gift card and GAME giving me £25 of Reward points due to the inconvenience I've had from them cancelling my order. No freebies but I got them with the 3DS version so whatever.

Just as I was pondering whether to go looking in the big Tesco in Tottenham, I saw that Nitro was available online. So that saved me a trip smilie

Maybe I ought go looking for granite crusher though? It's the only giant/variant left I don't have... but I will probably will just end up getting one from eBay.

My preorder bonus items did not arrive from Game. Got an email response saying they are shipped separately. Chased today via web chat, advised I have to return the dark edition to be resent the preorder deal. What a joke. Was offered a tenner in vouchers but explained I wanted the items instead. Couldn't help. Anyone else got their items sent separately yet?

told you have to return in order to be resent a preorder deal? that makes no sense. any new orders that come in wouldn't get it anyway I'd expect as they'd then probably just turn around and say no as it was no longer a preorder and deny all knowledge.

FWIW I'm still waiting on my Lightcore Hex bonus items too. My Dark Edition order with Game has been a bit of a farce.....late delivery, received the coupon code for the free Giant figure....this didn't work on the day....the next day it said expired....then they said I have to wait a few days for a response from their 'team', who said I have to contact them again and they will put through the order manually (despite asking them this the first time round), but now all the figures (or at least last time I checked) were out of stock....and of course yet to receive the preorder bonus items

Last time I preorder anything from Game....reason I don't shop in their store is because they're pathetic in there but thought the online experience would have been hassle free
Spyro557 Emerald Sparx Gems: 3758
#389 Posted: 16:22:18 23/10/2013

I got the standard edition from game and all the preorder stuff came boxed in the same package as the game, when I was in my local game store the other day they still had tons of the preorder bonuses so I would recommend taking your receipt in and explaining the situation to see if they still have any.

Game said to wait 10 working day for it to arrive. It's only been 5. I am getting worried though.

On a similar note, I ordered a bunch of Skylanders from Coolshop. It says they were shipped on the 18th, but haven't arrived yet. Anyone know how long it usually takes?
