#14199755 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by Gameboy415 on 16 August 2019 - 03:31 PM

I think this might be a stealth bump weekend. I just got the "You Have X Items Worth $X in Credit!" email from Gamestop.  One of the games on my list is New Super Mario Bros U Delux and it states that the pro trade credit value is $33 so that would mean that the switch games showing $30 base is correct.

Just got the same e-mail and it included a link to the new 'Most Wanted Trades' list:



#14198568 3D Blu-Ray thread

Posted by Gameboy415 on 13 August 2019 - 04:30 AM

Several reward items on the Disney Movie Rewards site are 'on sale' through 8/15 and a few 3D Blu-Rays are included:



  450 points - Planes 3D Blu-Ray Combo Pack
  800 points - The Good Dinosaur 3D Blu-Ray Combo Pack
1000 points - Chicken Little 3D Blu-Ray Combo Pack

1200 points - The Jungle Book (Live Action) 3D Blu-Ray Combo Pack

1200 points - Inside Out 3D Blu-Ray Combo Pack


I went ahead and grabbed Planes 3D as I already own all of the others.

I actually got Chicken Little and the 2 Pixar films from DMR when they were first available a few years back but I'm pretty sure I had to use at least 2000 points on each movie at the time. Oh well...

I heard about the figure sale a few hours after it went live but I was able to get Sora & Roll (from Mega Man) Nendoroids at my local store first thing in the morning.


Also, not sure if anyone else is looking for one but the Nintendo Labo VR Kit is finally back in stock on the GS website!




I cashed in some point certificates and got one for just over $5 shipped! :D

As someone who used to collect Star Wars toys (I had every figure released between 1995-2002) and has collected video games for 20+ years, these Star Wars retro/repro releases don't interest me at all.


I'll grab the standard edition of Bounty Hunter and any other Star Wars stuff they (re-)release for modern consoles but I feel like the repros are going to be a really tough sell for them - especially for $40/$85 a pop!

An employee was marking down clearance toys when I was at my local Target this morning and I was able to get the Target-exclusive Mickey Mouse Nendoroid for $17.98!


Also grabbed the last Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite Iron Man vs Mega Man action figure set for $7.48.

I tried using the Minecraft Cartwheel coupon on a Creeper controller earlier this evening but it didn't work.
Luckily the cashier was nice enough to manually apply the 20% discount for me so I got the controller for $26.99. :)

It took 5 minutes to actually go live!

Seriously, what happened this morning!? :wall:

I had to be in a meeting at work at 11AM today so I was going to quickly place my order at my desk and run over to the meeting room as it usually only takes a minute or two to checkout.
I log in to my LRG account (& PayPal) and start refreshing the Absolver page at 10:58.
11AM rolls around, the counter hits zero, and I continue refreshing the page for 2 minutes straight - nothing.
I quickly pull up the LRG Twitter on my phone to see if the release was delayed again - nothing.
I quickly check a few forums for any updates - nothing.
I keep refreshing until 11:05 when a co-worker comes by and 'reminds' me about the meeting so I give up and head to the meeting, assuming the game will be pushed to 5PM EST like Shadow Warrior 2 was last month.

I get back to my desk after the meeting to find out the game went up at 11:06 and promptly sold out - what?!

I've purchased every LRG & Special Reserve Games PS4 release thus far so I'm really upset that I missed this one because it randomly went up late.

Obviously there are things out of your control but please remember that many of us have to try to buy your games while we're at work so it's incredibly frustrating when listings don't go live at your announced/scheduled times. :(

I'll still gladly support you guys going forward but I'd suggest putting up a small 2nd batch at a later scheduled time if you run into technical difficulties like this again in the future.
It would give everyone who was ready to buy the game(s) at your scheduled time a fair chance.

So can anyone confirm that its 25% off all xbox one and ps4 games?

It seemed to be the case based on the signage at my store.

I picked up Resident Evil Revelations 2 for PS4 and Rare Replay for XB1, both of which were $29.99, and pre-ordered Super Mario Maker for Wii U. The 25% only came off one game but the cashier manually adjusted the other one down for me (to $21!). :)
Plus I used the 10% off Cartwheel coupon, got 5% off with my Red Card, and used a $5 gift card to get both games for $36.11 total! :D
