I just started with collecting everything a month ago.  Are the disks worth it?  Do they add anything of value?



Also, I think we broke TRU, my orders won't pop up lol.

value....not really outside of collecting. I kinda got sucked into it, and before I knew it thanks to good trades, sales, and free discs from people I was only missing like 50% of the discs so I said screw it. In terms of resale value, CURRENTLY they are worth a good bit.


Complete 1.0: $150

Complete 2.0 Marvel: $140
Complete 2.0 Disney: $140

Complete 3.0: $50-100

King Mickey (LE 5000): $100-150 on avg.


So for just the 1.0 and 2.0 discs it's about $400+ in the CURRENT market. 3.0 aren't worth that much due to not having blind bags so it was easy to get them all.


I expect the values to drop but this is Disney stuff after all, so I am hopeful it won't drop too low. Maybe about $300 or so for all the power discs minus King Mickey.


It is hard for me to say if you should collect them but here is a basic outline of what they do:


All power discs can be stacked two high. Some 1.0 circle discs can be combined for bonus effects. But if there is no bonus you just get both effects.


Circle: Go under a character, change appearance or add abilities/powers to use in toy box mode/story missions

Hex Yellow: Go in the playset area. Can only be used in toy box mode. Add toys your characters can use.

Hex Purple: Go in the playset. Can only be used in toy box mode. All you to change to look and music of your toy box.


So you might want to look at a list of what they all are and do and just buy the ones you want or say screw it and get none or all of them. It's really a personal choice.

The Disney glitch/workaround where you split DMA and Google has never resulted in anyone getting their account closed or frozen, these are all just rumors. The only thing that's been heard is that people who call Disney get the movie they're calling about taken away by Disney because once you call, they look into your account and notice the movie has been redeemed twice. Never call Disney over things like that. Disney closing accounts or banning them? There is no proof and nobody has come forward with evidence that Disney closed their accounts. Many people use this workaround because it allows for two redemptions. If you do buy a DMA or Google only code, then the seller should advise the buyer not to call Disney. The seller should refund the buyer if there are any issues with those codes (it not porting to DMA) but other than that, a lot of people use these codes and have no issues as long as they don't call Disney. People should be aware, but they should also know that nobody has had their account closed because of these codes. I guess it depends on what you decide though. There is also no way to tell if the Google has been pulled, as the new website shows it as a full code, which is really inconvenient for those looking for 'full codes' that haven't been used at all.

That is exactly what I said. I never said anything bad happened other then when people called Disney and drew attention to themselves. But since this is a game website and not mainly for movies I wanted people to be aware there is a POSSIBLE risk and to buy codes with all the info. At least they aren't going in blind.


I entered a Muppets Most Wanted code on my DMA account the other day, if someone wants the movie to redeem on google play send me a pm I'm interested to see if it redeems.

Yeah like kanekiken said, the code has to be split before redeeming it on DMA otherwise it uses the code and it can't be split.

Just want to put this out there for people who may not know. This is a site for video games and not primarily for movies so I don't fault anyone for not being fully aware of this.


You can split Disney codes if you use a "glitch/exploit". I won't tell anyone how to do this and there are no confirmed instances of being punished for redeeming split codes UNLESS someone who has part of the split code contacts Disney and that will cause issues, but that's a normal rule on CAG, don't call companies!


But please be aware if you see ANYONE selling Disney movies with a Google Redeem that is a SPLIT CODE. If they are also selling the same movie but selling it as DMA+DMR then it is likely the other half of the split code.


Again there is no confirmed issues outside of people drawing attention to their accounts, but there is no reason people should be paying anything more then $10 for a FULL CODE for Disney movies (unless it is a pre-release then I can see it going for $12-13). If it is a split code then I would not pay more then $6 for it even if it includes the DMR


Some sellers will not divulge this info in the hopes of doubling their profit. If you are fine with this then go ahead, I am just putting information out there so people can make their purchases with all the facts in mind. Pay what you deem fair but do so knowing the facts.

Yes, let's all abuse it and take advantage! If we do it enough, they might even save us the hassle of having to wait for it by getting rid of it completely. Then you can actually sleep at night knowing you don't have to stay up all night refreshing for your points because you know they will never come.

Holy crap guys...he's on to something here. He speaks the truth, let's all call for the points as soon as 15-20 days pass so we can finally be rid of this headache /yellowtext.

#13459206 The General eBay Rant Thread

Posted by Saix_XIII on 14 September 2016 - 07:31 AM

I tried making Offers on a few things recently. One person went down from $12.50 or 12.25 or 12.00 even, saying it was the best they could do. Another person went down like 27 cents.


So I echo the above sentiments WTF IS THE POINT! If you're allowing offers, you should be willing to take at least a 10% discount depending on the price. $10=$8-9. $50=45 $100=90 $500=$475. Etc etc. Going down 25 cents or less then a dollar is worthless and you're just wasting peoples time.

#13457328 The General eBay Rant Thread

Posted by Saix_XIII on 12 September 2016 - 03:45 PM

So I had my first seller's adventure on ebay from something I sold a few weeks ago.


A few months ago I upgraded my Harmony remote in the living room and found I really liked the Smart Hub/Remote more then my Harmony One touch screen remote which I use in my media room. I know a lot of people prefer the One, but I don't watch a lot of TV in my media room. I mainly watch Netflix, VUDU, or play games on my PS4/PS3/360. And while it worked well with the 360 it never worked for PS3/PS4. I could add PS3 with a $50 (MSRP) add-on but I noticed the Hub worked with everything so I decided to get another one and sell my One.




I took very clear photos, listed the item had a good amount of physical wear, but every single button was tested and the screen was still 100% functional. Again, it had cosmetic wear and I made sure to highlight that in both photos and description.


Someone buys it for $90 and I ship it out priority, insurance, etc etc. I even re-cleaned the remote and tested all the buttons and touch screen again to make sure it was good to go before I shipped it out. They get it and I hear nothing for a few weeks and think everything is good. Well...a few days ago the buyer opens a return case, but right from the start it seemed weird to me


The buyer requested a return
Reason for return
Doesn't work or defective
There is a lot of glue on the back of the remote when it arrived


First, it having "glue" on the back of the remote does not make it defective. It would make it "different then described" or something along those lines. I was a bit flustered (I have anxiety issues so I usually go overboard with bad news/situations) and immediately called ebay. They said to ask the buyer for photos because I clearly stated that there is wear and tear and posted good photos. When I get the photos I can see if the damage is the same as what I had in the listing in which case I am in the clear because I clearly indicated the condition. So I sent the buyer a message and heard nothing from them for DAYS. Each day I was a little calmer, but still on edge. Finally, this morning I get a message that the buyer themselves closed the return for "other" reasons.
So my assumption is they didn't look at the photos or the description and just saw the price and the very first photo and bought it. I am not trying to be an ass but hopefully they learned that you need to read and look at everything very carefully when buying 2nd hand items.

I preordered Gears months ago and now my bank sent me a new Visa card with eChip, so my old card will stop working on October 1st, a week before the game comes out.

Any idea what will happen to my preorder once BB tries to charge my old card?

I tried updating the payment info on the order but they do not offer that option online...

Cancel it and reorder it...

Posted by Saix_XIII on 08 September 2016 - 06:20 AM

First, depending on where you are, there is no Five Below in CA, and for whatever reason they don't ship to CA.


The starter figures are cheap everywhere, but the disc is what you want from the starter so you can play all the 1.0 play sets (the starter playset piece alone includes 3 play sets in it)

Yeah just go to GS and buy the disc for $2 and then use the B2G3 free in store to get some of the cheaper 1.0 figures. Last week I got Lightning, Toy Story in Space set, Lone Ranger set, Tonto, Lone Ranger, and the game for 1.0 PS3 for $15 total.

Posted by Saix_XIII on 07 September 2016 - 08:25 PM

Put in a hold request for PS3 CE last night and picked it up a few hours ago and had to do some re-arranging to make it fit. If anyone cares everything inside is the retail versions. 2.0 PS4/PS3 starter set and then 3 figures sealed in retail packaging.


So here is my history of DI...forgive picture quality...



June 2015  - The Start and what I assumed was going to be my only 1.0 and 2.0 figures



November 2015 - The calm before the storm



Today - Ragnarok!!!




All I am "missing" from non-crystal figures are: Agent P, Dash, Francesco Bernoulli, Holley Shiftwell, and Syndrome

Posted by Saix_XIII on 07 September 2016 - 07:53 PM

Everything for DI is interchangeable EXCEPT for the base:


-XB1 uses it's own

-360 uses it's own

-Vita uses it's own

-3DS uses it's own

-PS3,PS4,Wii,WiiU are all the same and can be mixed/matched



XB1 will never get backwards compatibility for 1.0 because MS does not allow accessories to be used in emulation mode and even if that were to change there is no studio to do the work in making it compatible anymore.


So if you own an XB1 and want the CE/Saga then you will need to buy a base for XB1 (2.0 and 3.0 use the same base) and the games for the console as well of course.
