I wasn't planning on getting ODST but I might bite on this deal since I have the $30 GC from Batman.

I'll be using the Batman $30 GC on this too most likely. TRU knows how to get money.
I was trying to gold box ODST, but the trick is no longer working for me (even with a second account).

I'm guessing that it is this figure.

I'd rather cancel my BB order and pick this up.

They already have an ad out for that far ahead? So I have to wait until 9/20 before the 19.99 and under B2G1 deal?

I would rather they kept the action figure and gave me another $30 gift card like I got with Batman AA.

I agree. I would go for that option any day. I'm sure it is a tactic to 1) reduce actual loss of money (since there is about $4-$5 profit in a $12 figure) and 2) get more people started on the Halo action figure series and sell more toys.

TRU's Batman AA deal was their best launch deal since $25 GC + preorder coin with Super Mario Galaxy.

did they drop the 3 from the title to signify that it won't be an expansion?

I certainly hope the content of this game is more than just expansion quality. I know that is what it started out as.

how big is the figure? 6" or 12", or is it one of those crappy 2.5" ones

This reminds me, how horrible the Chris figure was for the RE5 CE

don't forget also about the figurine in street fighter 4 le what a major ripoff that was. Anyways, halo 3 odst is just like an expansion. It's a new campaign that is after halo 2 and right before halo 3. It's got a firefight mode which is like horde of gears of war 2 and it comes with all the previous content from halo 3 plus the 3 new dlc maps. I was thinking of trading in halo 3 at gamestop and using that credit towards a pre-order so it would boost my credit and then i'd just buy this. Tru stay giving good deals and don't see anyone comparing to them. Oh by the way, if you already have halo 3 and don't care for the campaign then just stick with your halo 3 game and purchase the 3 dlc maps for the 800 ms points that they usually cost.

I think this is the deal so far I am going with, if they keep this up with Brutal Legend and Assassins Creed 2 then you will "ALMOST" get assassins Creed 2 free after the combined Gift Cards in the end (or Brutal legend and AC 2 20ish dollars off a piece LOL not free but still great deal for release titles LOL)

Also from what I have seen because I have wanted an Open complete Marcus Fenix Figure apparently on EBAY you can sell both sealed and open game figures for 12$ LOL, hence I haven't gotten a Marcus Fenix Figure yet.

Quick question if you pre-order/purchase at TRU do you still get the "Halo Reach" beta invite and the code to play as SGT. Johnson in multiplayer or are they Gamestop exclusives for bonuses?

I might bite on this....This seems better than the amazon deal, even with tax. Plus, I can tell my wife that the GC can be used for diapers for my baby.....Makes buying that much easier....

I don't think most TRU stores will allow you to use a gift card to pay for a package deal that comes with a gift card. I tried using a gift card to pay for Batman AA and the employee told me the computer wouldn't allow it.

I think the Amazon deal still works out to be better, especially if you were able to get it in your Gold Box and stack an ECA coupon on it. This isn't bad though, especially if you don't have Prime and want to have it the day it's released.

I used a gift card to pay for Batman. Maybe the gift card has to be less/equal to the amount of the game you're paying for?

The Halo: Reach beta is included with all ODST games. You get the Sgt Johnson code from preordering the game (not just gamestop)

Wow, TRU is really doing a good job with their ads/promotions.

If I buy this game then it will be at TRU.

Thanks to the OP for sharing.

Thanks for the info. I'd been holding out on pre-ordering wanting a good deal.....I knew somebody would have something to make it worth it. This is where I'll get mine.

TRU ad deals 3 weeks out? Nice job OP! Was going to pass on ODST, but deals like this make it tough. May just have to bite now. Keep up the good deals TRU!
