Gamestop is full of morons.

 

It makes no sense why they, from a business model standpoint, would treat collectors/limited edition games as standard when they could sell them for more money.

Last time I was at my local GameStop, they had around 4 left. Can't check it out for a couple days however. Not going to try calling ahead if the employees haven't found out yet.

To any West LA CAGs, just picked mine up at Overland and Venice and they still had two left.  I called ahead and had them hold it with no problems.  With the birthday coupon, was $11.38 out the door.  Thanks again OP!

Because they aren't selling.

 

At this point they have been $50 for several months.  I still have stores near me that had 3+ of these...

There was two at the gamestop I went to. It wouldn't scan when the guy was gonna check the price. Finally he found it and said it was $30 so I passed on it. Also both boxes were already cut open.

Employee must have overridden the price. Its supposed to ring up as the used $13 price. The SKU for the new copies have been converted to used pricing.

Hmm...I guess I'll go check another gamestop tomorrow. There are 4 gamestops in town, and last time I checked each gamestop had multiple of these.

Nothing available in my area.. I was looking around the Monroe/Indian Trail area in NC. I'll try Charlotte but this is definitely YMMV. The employees looked at me like an idiot saying that the Epic Editions would have already been gutted with all the extras taken out, leaving only the game and since the online search won't work they'll say it's not in stock. If anyone snagged one and wants to sell, PM me. Something reasonable though.

Woohooo!!! Found the last one in my local store. Box was displayed on the wall in pristine condition. Staff had to get a ladder to get it. He had that "WTF!" expression when he rang it up. Hehe! He was cool though and just said to me that i got a pretty awesome deal and when he handed me the receipt he didnt forget to do the survey pitch talk. Lol!

I bought one before when it was $49.99 and open that one up for display. This time this baby will be kept sealed or probably be a gift to my nephew next week. Hehe! Thanks OP!

Picked one up last night at my local store. Last one. The guy had trouble getting it to scan, but he knew it was supposed to be marked used, so he overrode the price.

 

Now to figure out what to do with it.

Just sell the statue.  It alone goes for $20-30 on eBay.

 

Or if you're lazy resell it all to AWD for 19$

People are not supposed to call.  What ever happened to the cardinal rule of not calling?  It gives workers the chance to keep it for themselves.

checked in  at GS after seeing this thread while at BestBuy, asked the guy if he had anymore...

 

he said no, they were all gone but they had a display one left that he had to destroy bc they were being converted to used...then picked up the display one and laid it down behind the counter...said he couldnt sell it and was going to have to destroy it...then added he couldnt even keep it...

 

I guess he could tell I thought he was full of shit bc he seemed to emphasize that he wasnt going to be keeping it again...LOL fukin GS

I've been calling and they keep saying the same thing. Nothing in my town and surrounding area and I don't feel like driving for an hour into uptown just to possibly waste gas. On that note, I'll likely do it later anyways.

CAG rule: Do not call, just go.

Think i'll swing by and check out a couple of nearby gamestops just for kicks. Can't believe this used to be $150 when it came out.

Yesterday I went and checked on a store I knew had 3 of them as of a couple of weeks ago. No dice. They must have been snapped up fast.

Meh, I rather know what I am buying than paying for it from an eBay scalper. Besides, I have nothing else planned for today.
