Just done a quick search and it looks like theres not been any confirmation of how things will work / what will be on offer in the UK yet.
Gamestop... WHY?! Why could it not be Walmart? At least they have a chance to put the figure IN with the game there.
Instead pre-ording for the game with the figure as a gift means you MAY get it from a Gamestop. That is, from one that does not let its employees take as many as they want (to put them on eBay), give them to people that did not pre-order, or just plain got 3 for their store even though 10 people pre-ordered the game.
Guess I will need to check eBay and pay dearly for the figure and Ill just wait until the game is like 30 dollars and try to get the figure for 20 from someone that mysteriously gets 20 of them to put on eBay.
Maybe need to get a petition together or something to explain to LEGO and the game manufacturer as to why it is a bad idea for Gamestop to get exclusives to giveaway with purchase of a game (mainly because just because you pre-order from Gamestop does not mean you will get the figure) Man, I hope so, I REALLY hope so.
I've done similar things a couple of times now (with UK suppliers). Fig usually ends up costing me a pound or two, once e-bay selling fees are taken into account. Though on the Lego movie game, I actually got the poncho Emmett and a small profit!
No consistency is why Gamestop does not get my money.
Assuming we also get this in the UK (I don't know why we wouldn't but I've still not seen anywhere in the UK with the Vitruvius mini figure with TLM) I'll definitely order from whoever has the promotion. Always need more superheroes!
Amazon – LEGO Batgirl Keychain
Best Buy – LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Digital Comic Book by Comixology
GameStop – LEGO Plastic Man Minifigure
Target – LEGO Batwing Miniset
Toys 'R' Us – LEGO The Joker Keychain
Walmart – LEGO Tumbler Miniset
Personally, I think Target came out the best, but I'm not a fan of DC at all, so what do I know?
The UK had the Batwing and Tumbler in the paper, so could get one for under £1.
Keyrings £2.99 from LEGO themselves.
Not sure if many people want the comic, no idea how many pages etc.
Plastic man (kind of ironic for a LEGO figure) exclusive figure is the only one that will cost more through exclusiveness on the after market, so if you fancy one its the best one to go for, not sure if anyone will have it in the UK.
He looks a bit like Elvis as well.
I would almost rather buy the figure off of eBay for 20-25 dollars, and then just buy the game either from someone on eBay, or wait for about 6-8 months and pick it up on the cheap from Amazon.com before I give money to GS for their horrible business practices.
I had to buy my Lex off of eBay, I think I got him for about 20 at the time
I have always told myself that if I pre-order and they don't give me the fig, I will walk away and consider other options. Luckily this has not happened to me yet.
Not sure if this has been mentioned anywhere else...but there's also a Lego Ninjago Nindroids game pre-order...but it's only available on 3DS/handhelds for a keychain.
I do like the Adam West Batman and that would be cool if they made him.
The other thing I'm liking is if I order to ship to my address (instead of pickup) you are apparently guaranteed a plastic man, as opposed to the store where you roll the dice (do not remember if this was this way in previous giveaways)
It is 3.50 for shipping and up to tens days wait time, but I may decide against my GS ban and order it online anyway just to guarantee the figure will be in my hands.
At least it sounds like they fixed it. I know when I did 'to pickup at store' for LEGO PoTC I did not get the Sparrow figure and I emailed them to complain they offered me no such figure. Maybe they learned enough to know that they need to at least honor the deal if they sent it from the factory.
