Just thought you'd all love to know that I went to MCM in London on Saturday and there was an entire stall with Skylanders... Including every rare Skylander ever produced. All were over £100 each. It was like heaven, if heaven had an entrance fee of £100.

Toys R Us have knocked a pound off of their Swap Force figures for half-term.
Lightcore £9:99, regulars £7:99 etc.

Tesco Direct - can now use any clubcard points you have on the "Double Up" for the skylanders figures......handy if anyone still needs to get the Nitro Magna Charge double pack

I contacted GAME about not getting my pre-order. They have sent me out a lightcore hex and said it was the last one. I questioned the UFO card and he said it was in the box. I don't know if he was referring to the character card or if they will send it in a smart box like TRU. We shall see.

Wow, The Tesco double points thing is amazing. I wish they had more figures in stock though!
Does anybody know if I could do this in store rather than ordering online?
Would be better to go to a store and pick the figures up off the shelf smilie

I want to take advantage of the boost (I'd have £20). What I'm concerned about is whether the single characters like Hoot Loop, Magna Charge, Rollerbrawl, Countdown and the LightCorse is: Will they be released in double/triple packs later on in the waves.

For anyone who was looking for the Dark Edition, GAME have now reduced the price by £20 (for the 360 version; they did for the PS3 but it's out of stock).

Can't say I'm thrilled with them doing it TWO WEEKS after they released the game, but whatever. It's a heads-up, if there isn't a thread already.

Well... I would say "I'm not too bothered, I got a pre-order bonus with mine"... But oh no... Wait... I didn't. Despite being told that it was already shipped.

Edit: Wow... I just asked why I hadn't got the pre-order bonus. It hadn't even been shipped. That's terrible. They've sent it now, but why didn't they send it two weeks ago like I was told?

This is GAME for you.

I already told them after the debacle I had with the Swap Force that I wouldn't be shopping with them. I have pre-orders for the final Professor Layton game with them, and then after that (and after I use the last of my points), it will take a lot for me to want to shop there again. They're just going completely downhill.

Game finally sent mine through, but in an envelope with barely any protection. It is a good job it wasn't to keep sealed as the blister pack was dented and the box was crushed, but still disappointing as it is a gift for my son.
I have wasted far too much time,money and emotion with Game now.

It's such a huge shame to see them going as badly downhill as they have. You'd have thought having gone into administration, they would have learned from their experience, but obviously not. Not even my local store seems so great to go to now; even as recently as earlier this year, they were pretty great, but now they've taken on new staff and I never get to see the decent ones any more, not to mention the differences in prices (for the most part) between site and store.

Don't get me wrong; I appreciate all the help that the lady I ended up speaking to gave me. But it really should not have escalated to that point, and seeing what people have to say here, I'm obviously not alone. All I can do, as I would encourage others to do, would be to shop elsewhere.

Oh wow, I got it today as well with the exact same situation. The package dented and was dusty inside, and also the box was crushed.

yup mine was battered to bits too when it finally arrived. Sooooo......1) The main starter pack came late, 2) Now that the preorder bonus came, it was in a ridiculous condition, 3) Nothing but issues and fobbing off with the free Giant code....and after it not working initially, having to chase it up with them, (saying I'd used the code already etc (which hadn't)) them refusing to manually place order with for the giant I wanted.....then when they finally do say by email that I should contact them on the chat to put through the order manually, there is only the one Giant available (Swarm), which I do not want anyway (it will end up being a gift for someone else, so basically any of them EXCEPT for swarm would have done

I'm now wondering if I should cancel some of my Disney Infinity preorders with them for fear of badly packed boxes or damaged figures

#420 Posted: 22:36:46 02/11/2013
Glad I just ordered with TRU.
Sad to see so little care taken over these orders.
Then again I didn't get a free giant either. Swings and roundabouts eh.

Hey! That's very useful! I was just thinking "if only this tower of Portals was worth something". It's a shame there isn't a Smyths anywhere near me.

Only the Fire Kraken/Grilla Drilla pack for now.

I ordered before 5:00PM and paid extra delivery to get it tomorrow!

And if it doesn't come Saturday I paid extra for nothing...

I wonder if they are going to bin them and just collect them as part of a loss leader?
Anybody know any staff at Smyths who could enlighten me? Would be sad to see them binned, there are lots of parts inside that could be re-used/re-cycled.

grrrr well with all my Game store Dark Edition preorder faffing about, and then the code 'not working' and then, for the free Giants figure, apparently me 'trying to use it unsuccessfully' making it invalid, I was told they would finally agree to put the order through manually...but since then the only figure they had in stock to select was Swarm.....the only one I wanted the least. So I'd held out til now, but as the deal ends in a few days guess I better get this rubbish Swarm......*sigh* was hoping for Thumpback as a present for nephew

I wouldn't be surprised if they sold them on to a company like CEX at a reduced price, honestly. Or handed them back to Activision so they can dismantle them and make new ones.

But now you've got me curious on what will happen to them too.

There wasn't any giant available that my son needed either, so I had a look to see if the free giant code worked against a standard figure. It does, but better than that it subtracts 14.99 so you can actually buy 2 of the non giants that are on offer for less than 3 quid for the pair ( I got him s2 lightning rod and hex). Not sure if this helps you out as an alternative to the swarm decision

Someone please answer urgently as I am going to smyths in 20 mins. Does smyths ask for the usb reciever and portal or just the portal as I have lost my reciever. Also can you trade in more than one portal as I have 2. Iwant to get to figures both over 10 pounds so can I trade in one then buy a figure. Then go to to the checkout again and trade in the other and get other figure.

I doubt if they check for the usb dongle. It's per transaction. Use 1 portal and go back and use the other when you buy the other figures over £10. If they object, just get someone else to do it for you.
