#13976037 Lego Dimensions Deals and Discussion Thread

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 04 April 2018 - 02:11 AM

Are Lloyd and Aquaman unique polybags just like Super Girl?  I've been wondering what the bundled Lego Dimensions starter packs are like.  Does Lloyd and Aquaman even include their fun pack vehicles in their own starter pack bundles?

I bought a pack with Lloyd today. It's just in 2 small clear plastic bags with the manual sheet. There are 2 figure bases so it looks like the vehicle is included.




#13967059 Amazon Trade-In FAQ 6.0

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 20 March 2018 - 01:23 AM

I would hate to see GameStop as the only place to trade in. I'm probably one of the few people on this site that don't trade in there and rarely shop there at all (last purchase was in 2016). It seems like every time I try to buy something I have a problem like a worker trying to add a warranty onto a game purchase after I said I don't want it and then hoping I wouldn't notice the extra charge. The few times I tried trades there years ago was also problematic. It was things like being lied to in order to get me to sign up for their paid membership with my trades, not taking disc only games, not allowing a trade in bonus unless I preordered a game even though it wasn't required for the promotion etc. Even though NorAm is shady, I have had most trade ins go smoothly and like not having to go to a store to trade.

Kind of funny to see people trying to sell these on eBay for 10 times what they paid for them while leaving the $1.99 price sticker on the box and putting it in the picture:

#13936285 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 30 January 2018 - 07:37 PM

This is garbage treatment from WM. Once you pay for something, the transaction is over. What can they do, arrest you for paying?? If you had walked past them to your car, I wonder what would have happened. I agree that it's not worth the hassle in the end for a few games but it's the principle. When you pay for something and complete the transaction, IT'S YOURS.

I have thought about that as well. I agree once you pay for something and the transaction is done, they can't stop you but I can just imagine that if the police were called, there is chance of running into a problem. I just remember ridiculous stories over the years like the guy that tried to pay for something at Best Buy with $2 bills, the store thought they were fake, police were called and he was arrested.

 

When I first started buying penny guides, once at Best Buy the manager said he can't let me leave the store with them even though the transaction was finished and I had the receipt (manager was called to over-ride a price to mark down a clearance game in a separate transaction and the cashier made a comment about the guides. I didn't know the game was going to require an over-ride). I was a teenager at the time and my dad was with me who said the sale was done and mentioned how legally the guides were ours and eventually the manager backed down. Surprisingly, that was the only time at Best Buy I ever had a problem buying the guides.




#13933011 Toys"R"Us TRU YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 25 January 2018 - 01:22 AM

I hate when stores use liquidators. 3 Kmarts have closed near me in the last year and they all have been ran by Kmart which has been nice since they still allowed ShopYourWay points to be earned and redeemed at the closing stores and items that were on clearance before the going out of business sale were still left at the clearance price plus the store closing discount.

#13924337 Circuit City is coming back- new site and stores

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 10 January 2018 - 04:36 AM

Yeah they had amazing clearances and deals with the $5 sale being the best of all. Circuit CIty and Sears were my favorite places to buy games with both stores usually still having the games tagged at full price so you could wait until they dropped in price to a few dollars and they would still be there. Sadly with Circuit City gone, Sears and Kmart no longer selling games and Best Buy no longer having similar type of clearances, the days of getting current gen games for under $3 or $5 are mostly gone.




#13921906 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVII

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 05 January 2018 - 08:16 PM

This. I was actually going to start a new thread. I browse almost nightly. I don't even know if it's worth making a new thread because like you said there haven't really been deals in a long while. Nothing good at least. And when there is, it's generally 1 in stock. Plus after the bug awd overhaul making it nearly impossible to just browse it's... Unfortunately kind of dead

That's what killed it for me, not being able to sort low to high made me go from checking to see what was listed multiple times a day to once or twice a week.

If you have been waiting for a deal on Dr. Mario, it is new for $3.37 with free shipping on eBay

The Lego Dimensions item I ordered from them last week shipped in a box so hopefully they ship these Amiibo orders in a box as well.

The $1.79 Fun Packs are back from gamercandy on eBay
https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2562

I got the 1 Fun Pack I ordered last week a few days ago and I was impressed with how they shipped the order in a box. Most of the sellers I ordered from last year when people were selling the 99 cent store team and level packs for $5 to $7 shipped them in bubble mailers and folded the top of the packaging to get it to fit in the mailer.

Even though Best Buy's website image of the box art states VR is required, there is an update to allow the game to be played without VR

#13915489 Lego Dimensions Deals and Discussion Thread

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 27 December 2017 - 09:16 AM

If you trust eBay this seller has some really cheap items. Fun packs for $1.79 with free shipping, Portal level pack for $4.32 with free shipping and more.

https://www.ebay.com...SHIPPING_LOWEST

They have good feedback but the prices seem too low, postage alone is going to cost more than what the $1.79 fun packs are being sold for.

#13909407 Five Below $5 games

Posted by YoshiFan1 on 19 December 2017 - 09:43 AM

It won't work with older games. This version of the guitar has 6 buttons, 3 on each row compared to 5 buttons across 1 row on the old games.

I bought the Wii U version 2 weeks ago (I wanted it for PS3 but both locations in my area were sold out). It has a learning curve with having to move to the different rows or push a button on 2 rows at the same time especially because I am used to the old setup but I think it's worth trying for $5.
