Good deal for those who wanted this but didn't want to pay the $249.99 MSRP.

 

This is a lightning deal, so as of this post, there is 3 hours and 20 minutes left.

EDIT:

 

Deal is back. No lightning deal. Since this is an Amazon Exclusive, this should be it once it's gone. 

 

To clarify, the real difference is JD's clothing on the bike.

 

 

Thanks wolverinevsx23 for stating it's back.

 

It's back at $79.99.

Nice deal. I'm going to hold out in hopes that it'll drop even more. Anybody with any input on the quality of the statue? It looks pretty good.

Too bad the game stinks beside horde mode. The SP felt like it was early last gen. Of course I have gotten spoiled with Uncharted games and  ease movement instead of feeling like a sumo wrestler on roller skates. LOL! Also, no offline split screen(have to be logged online) for horde mode and single player is kind of stupid. I mean you need an internet now to play almost all games. Sorry for my rant.

You forgot the best part: The online multiplayer is straight up broken with it's hit detection!

It's tempting, but I think I'm okay with my $26 total I paid for at Best Buy with cup and coaster.

If you actually want the statue. I would suggest grabbing it now. The other game can still be flipped for decent amount if you're not gonna play it now. Also keep in mind that unlike the Halo 5 CE (which was everywhere). Only Amazon is still selling the Gears of War 4 CE at this point. They alone have control of the prices and once it's gone then it's gone. There's no backup retailers to wait for competing price like Halo 5 CE.

just popping in to say this campaign is easily the worst of the main series and the coalition's policies for mp and paid dlc are abhorrent

Must be nice to have gotten the mug and coaster.  I preordered and noone knew about the set.  I eventually found out that you had to contact them in the forums, but both times I did they sent me an expired code even though the BF deal including it was going on.  Now they tell me they could send another expired code, but that is it.  So I'm SOL.

They need to discount this even more as TC just pissed off a large part of their community yesterday by revealing the UIR pack is going to cost $9.99 or 4400 credits per pack and will be available for 24 hours today. It will come back after Xmas for an unspecified amount of time lol

Why is that a problem?

The only 14% claimed is pretty shocking to me. Mainly because I easily flipped quite a few copies of the Ultimate Edition of the game for $65 to $70 so that tells me there's a market for that at that price, but yet people wouldn't shell out just $10 to $15 extra for this awesome huge ass statue, a frag grenade Keychain, and a lithograph? Heck people were paying $20 just for the keychain.

Edit: The UE version of the game has gone down a little bit to $50 to $55, but still.

Well in each pack you get 3 of the 30 possible cards and you get duplicates. Obtaining 4400 credits takes about ~5-6 hours. Their most expensive pack before this was released is 3500 credits. It originally cost 4000 credits when gears 4 was released but people complained about the pack costs so they dropped the prices accross the board. So basically you have 24 hours to get as many packs as possible and hope for some decent cards as no one knows how long it will be available after Xmas.

I don't see the problem. I get maybe 700 REQ Points in a Halo match that takes 10-15 minutes, if I remember correctly. In an hour, you're talking about 3K. Their most expensive pack is 10K. Their limited time packs run about 100-200K and last a week. Never seemed to be a problem for me.

I've bought it twice from BB now and the coaster and mug were added to my order each time and shipped to the store for free...

Nice deal.  Amazon was offering an instant $70 gift card for getting their Visa and I've been looking for a back up/emergency card, so I got the card and this collectors edition for $10, thanks OP.

Why are you talking about Halo? I am talking about Gears. Halo also doesn't have dupes.

I'm in.  Wanted the original collector's edition and had it pre-ordered for months before release.  Got closer to Christmas, the credit card was filling up, and I decided I couldn't justify $250 here, $30 there for movies, etc... so I cancelled.

 

I've seen this one marked down before, but again decided it was too much and didn't pull the trigger.  But yes, my understanding is it lights up, it's a quality statue, and while I MIGHT get GOW4 for Christmas... I certainly can use the 2nd copy, trade it, sell it, etc.  The ONLY negative is this being a disc instead of the code so I can play on PC without my system, but I'll manage.  :)

 

Thanks OP, even if my credit card doesn't thank you!  ;)

I could live with horde mode being online only, if split screen didn't have the black bars. That ruins it for me.

As someone who has 50+ copies of several REQ weapons and vehicles, you are wrong.

Probably as I am going by what someone else said since I don't play Halo. Everyone seems to like the Halo system when compared to Gears though. I still don't know why you were going on about Halo when this is not Halo.

Horde isn't very good when compared to Gears 3 though.

Because the situation you say is bad sounds similar to a system I think is fine, even as someone who doesn't think Halo 5 as a whole isn't that good.

This is tempting since the saeason pass is $50 alone...  but it's just MP stuff right?  I don't even play it online...  and I already have this digital.  I was just salty they didn't release any type of CE for the PC.  That makes me want to buy this and gift the disc to a friend so I can play it co-op.  But would I really want to play it again so soon?

Really tempted by this deal.  I played through the campaign and enjoyed it.  I may go back for horde mode, but I don't really play MP.  Might get it and sell the season pass for $35 ish.  $45 for the game, steelbook, keychain and statue isn't bad at all.
