BTW you still active with the FoF clan?

I am now.  With Destiny 1, I started with the CAG clan, then bounced over to FoF (who I knew of from my ME3 MP days), but ended up running with DoD X1 Ghost guys a lot in the last year as players started to dwindle a bit.  I have to say, there are great guys in all of those clans, but the CAG one didn't have enough players to allow you to jump in with groups easily and DoD tended to get clique-ish and it could be hard to get into standing groups who got into a routine.  So, yes, FoF it is for me.  They seemed to be the coolest group around and there was always someone(s) who you could jump in with easily. 

 

Note to the others, FoF = Federation of Fathers.  You don't have to be a Dad or a parent to join, there are chicks and younger dudes without kids.  But, being a Dad and husband, I love that their motto is "Family First" so it's a very much a good group who works with you and around real-life responsibilities. 

 

The other thing about running with a larger clan is that there will be clan rewards.  So it's advantageous for us to join a larger clan rather than starting our own CAG clan as we'll have a much higher chance for better rewards.  I don't know much about those rewards yet, but we'll find out soon.

One Target in my entire area supposedly has these...

 

 

 

Lastly, a Target by me showed that they had 4 of the Target Ghost Vinyls in stock, so I ran over there.  Just to be told by the manager that they would not break the release date of 9/6.  I was pretty butthurt by that.  Stupid target and their stupid rules.  [-(

But - it isn't worth fighting traffic if this is going to be a thing... Hmmmm...

 

Anybody changing the class the main? I know I'm one of the few on here who only plays one character. Debating between sticking with my warlock or going hunter. Leaning towards staying warlock.

I would have done Warlock but there's no more self-res, right?  In that case I'll stick with my original main, which was a Titan.  At least at first.  Will probably do all 3 like before.

 

Are people saying they are getting the figures now from Gamestop?  They didn't have any left when I originally preordered but the web site makes it sound like it is given out with the game now.

I was chatting with the guys at my store today and they said they have a s-ton of the Cayde-6 figures in the back, but they are handing them out with the game. 

 

Side note, the Funko Pops are sick.  Cayde and Oryx are the best, IMO.

Yeah FoF is a great group of people. There weren't any girls when it started, but like you said it's all about family. Might have to get active again, i stopped around TTK

Thats around the time I drifted, too.  Cheddar Johnson is already setting up groups for next week and a lot of the same folks are still around.

The only one I need now is Crota, which is Target exclusive and they aren't releasing until next week.  Target can be hit and miss with Pop exclusives.  I'm hoping this one is easy to grab because I don't want to go the ebay route.

I have the worst time finding exclusives at Target, they suck. And to top it off they have a Chase Crota also.

I'm not too terribly excited about that.  I kind of wanted to take it a little slower this time around :lol:.

Totally agree with you, io.  During the second year of Destiny, I constantly felt like I was under pressure to "keep up" and it got...unhealthy.  I was looking forward to having a month or two to just plug away at my own pace without feeling like I was in a race to get to max light right away.

Broke down and got two of the raid boss Funkos at GS since I had a $10 and $5 reward since I recently traded in a lot of stuff.

Good luck!  Target and Gamestop seem to be the places for Destiny goodies.

Looking for engram stress balls and pops at gamestop. Didn't see destiny related pop tarts or Rockstar energy drinks at target. Will also check back at Target in the coming week.

I was at Target and picked up a box of D2 themed Pop Tarts.  So, this gives us a Sparrow (cool) and, if I'm reading this right, a single mote of light?  Really?  This "XP Boost" is a single mote?  If motes still work the same, that's kind of weak.  

 

Listening to Byf's D1 "Complete Story" lore video right now and it's pretty good.  I thought about forwarding the link to a friend who never got that deep into D1, but this might just intimidate him rather than get him excited for D2.

I just got the Kellogs code for the sparrow, too.  I believe that is target exclusive, but it didn't say anything about that on the box, so who knows. 

 

Yes, Byf's complete story lore video is really good.  I usually prefer Mylen Games over Byf for Destiny lore, but Byf's work has become very, very good.  Here's a link to the D1 complete story video:

FYI, there is a D2 thread in the PS4 forum.  I figured if having a connection over there can enhance the discussion, bring more Guardians into the fold, it'd be a good thing.  Here's a link:  https://www.cheapass...ficial-thread/ 

 

Also, I learned something cool yesterday.  The live action trailer was shot in Downtown Detroit!  I recognized the tunnel as the tunnel to Cobo Hall and the director of the ad confirmed it!

A lot of the shots were also done at an old Packard plant and more at a vacant Cadillac plant.  Very cool.  yes, there are some run down and abandoned shithole areas of Detroit.  But now that I work downtown, I'm starting to see the renassaince of the city and it's instilling some Detroit pride into this suburban (40 year old) kid.

Guys - keep in mind you don't have to have the D2 branded pop tarts box to get the codes (these things are selling for crazy $$ on eBay). You simply have to text/email a photo of your receipt to the number or email provided. Did this yesterday and received both codes (XP & Sparrow) overnight.

You do still have to have a Target receipt for the Sparrow.

Reciept for purchase of the pop tarts @ target that I can't find, right?

Anybody have dcpi for brickseek.com?

I don't have the list of flavors/sizes, but my wife picked up a 12 pack of strawberry (no promo box) and that worked. Is your Target sold out of Pop Tarts?

I got the brown cinammon sugar 24 pack or whatever the larger size is.  I think what MOState is saying is that you can buy *any* pop tart at Target and use the instructions on the destiny theme box and get the reward.  Is that right MOState? 

 

For reference, here's the instructions off of my box: Text D2XP and a photo of your receipt to 89332.  Must be purchased between 9/1 and 12/31/7

You got it. There is a list floating around of "approved" flavors and sizes, but all of the standards are covered.

No. I was confused. I didn't realize it was any box of pop tarts from target that would work. I was wandering around targets looking for the promo box. My bad. Thanks for clarifying.

I had no idea this would've worked, so I would have been wandering too if I hadn't found my box or saw MOState's post.

A lot of people are capitalizing on the confusion. Thing is, you have to text/email the receipt showing you made the purchase, so the folks paying $30+ for two boxes of pop tarts will have nothing but boxes to show for it.

It could have been explained better, but I'm not sure Kellogg's anticipated the demand for the program. I am a fan of this system though, because these promotions often come and go without so much as a sign of "specially-marked boxes". That's my experience, anyway.

Is that how you get the Sparrow too? From the Pop Tart 2XP code?

Are the XP bonus from the Pop-Tarts stackable?

I think this works because they don't change the UPC for a particular flavor and box size of pop tarts. They just update the rest of the labeling for the promo.

If you mean can you get multiple codes and use them more than once, I think so. Back of the label says +25% for 4 hours.

If you're asking if you can use the codes simultaneously in game play, then I'm not sure about that.
