Two months go by and I forgot about the lancer until I get another email from GameStop saying they still haven't gotten the lancers in and they gave me a free code for a Cole avatar plushie.
Four months after the game's release I cancelled the lancer order and got my $80 back. Another 3 months or so later I get another email from GameStop saying that they finally got the retro lancers in stock but they weren't the silver ones that were originally pre-ordered. They were the "cute" pink one or an ugly blue one and I get first chance at ordering them since they
ed the last order. Needless to say I passed.
To avoid that whole experience again and to avoid this hideous Crazy Taxi lancer, I'm going to pass again.
you forgot to mention some coupon code for % off (50% ?) on NECA products at gamestop online. I think they only had some Assassin's Creed Flying Machine at the time.
also now that I think about it, I have no idea if I was ever charged for the lancer! I would think that the orders just got canceled... Going to have to dig through emails and old statements
