Received my Pipboy in the mail Tuesday and it had been damaged before shipping.  It had been dropped on a corner, bending the wire hinge and breaking the plastic around where it attaches.  Took it in to BB that day and they said my only option was to return it.  Hopefully I can do this and get an exchange.

Best of luck to you.

FYI, the Killdeer IL store had 2 of each version just sitting on the shelf yesterday, in the off chance someone is in the area.  Prices on ebay don't seem to be holding that great either so maybe the scalpers won't jump on them.

Yeah, stupid me. I wanted to be sure there was nothing wrong with it before trying to sell it to someone. If simply sliding an item out of the pipboy loosens or takes apart the padding inside, it wasn't put together too well in the first place(check the numerous statements and videos commenting on how fragile it is). How long do you think it will take simply wearing it to start coming apart. I don't feel like I should owe 130 bucks for something that comes apart so easy( if it was even "glued" correctly in the first place). Would have taken an exchange if they weren't out of stock. And if I wanted to sell it, who's business is it anyway. Someone gets it perhaps I make a profit, perhaps not. But I wasn't going to sell it to someone even having minor problems. I'm sure no one else placed an order when they were available knowing how much it was going for and weren't planning on keeping it. If I bought multiple copies, sue me. I bought one, quit your whining.

I fail to see what person would want an opened item tested by a random stranger for a premium price instead of a sealed copy? Are you GameStop?


Why don't just say you wanted to play with it for a while then resell it. Nothing wrong with that.

I didn't want to play with it. But I know that some collector's items get messed up in shipping, seemingly more often these days, although in  hinds sight maybe I should have left it alone and just sold it. But I didn't want to sell it and have there be some problem with it after someone bought it from me. Just being overly cautious I guess.

I just came back and was able to OMS order the PS4 pipboy. I live in central VA.

 

I had a Best Buy email for spending over $50 and getting a free bluetooth speaker which I was also able to get. And, because I got a used game as well it kicked me over $100, so I'll get the $10 reward in early Dec.

 

I less than 3 BB.

I used the free speaker coupon when I picked up my preorder at the midnight release.

 

Apparently it was targeted toward millennials.  It showed up on the POS as "MILLENNIAL HOLIDAY OFFER"

I still wonder why anyone would buy the Pipboy Case for $40 to $50. Saw tons of them sell at that price.

Yes...and I identify as a Gen X'er...so this was a friendly stab at my own generation. But thanks for taking the time to look at my profile.

No worries, and sorry if it came off as snarky. I just find it humorous that society often tends to label us as the "slacker" generation, something I think that was attributed to us during the early 90's days of grunge music, flannel coats, and cutting class to smoke weed, none of which I actually engaged in but alot of people must have, apparently.

OT, but I'm so happy to be done with the "underworld" part of being a pot smoker. I'm a fairly new resident to Oregon but I'm not leaving until Cali gets with the times.

You don't like being an "outcast" whilst taking part in one of the most popularized things in the nation? But how else can you be a cool kid?

Anyone got the pipboy shipped to them yet? Wondering about the packaging. Read that some people CE were damaged.

I did all for store pickup. Wasn't going to risk having it shipped to me.

It appears best buys in IL area received 1 of each of the Pip-Boy editions for PC/ XBone/ PS4.  I saw them at 2 Best Buys in the Chicago burbs.  Make sure you ask them if you don't see it on the shelf, they may have them in the back or in the front wire case.  They said they received them yesterday.

 

Best of luck for those interested.  $99ish with GCU.

One I got in store was apparently opened. Steelbook damaged. Pip-boy is fine though, Fallout 3 was redeemed already...... Pisses me off to a point I don't even want it cause of the steelbook being damaged

It's in Houston, I'm assuming he thought you were from there.
