Toys R Us have further reduced the AC-ACT from £99.98 to £49.98 BUT thats if you can find the twat :x

According to their store availability they have one in the Plymouth store but thats quiet a drive from Leeds :( ....

Also i put a request in for future restock alerts and i got an email back saying its a discontinued item :x

Why the fuck reduce it to a reasonable cost (£49.98) and then only have (according to their online stock check) only the 1 availabe throughout thier whole UK stores :?

I want one i want one i want one i want one......

Rant over :D

Wondering if Smythes do a toys r us price match? I know that toys r us do a smythes pricematch but no idea about the other way round. I was in my local smythes yesterday and theyre in stock at £100. Ive got a mate who works there actually ill message them and find out.......

Looked everywhere for this amazing £10 price. Tesco's website says £40! Are they the same as below? Someone else mentioned £10 a few weeks back. Must be Tescos Australia doing the offer!

I don't think Smyths have the same price match policy as Toys R Us Chiffy...

I went to Toys R Us in Gildersolme (near Showcaee cinema Leeds) today to ask if they could possibily get the one in Plymouth sent to the Leeds branch...No probs they said but it could be anything from 6 weeks onwards...No probs i said so the manager got on the phone to them checked around some nearer stores to see if there was a nearer one available..sadly not so she phoned the Plymouth branch to arrange to get that one in transit for me...That manager went to look for theirs and guess what.......they couldn't find that one in thier store anywhere,not on the shelf or in the back :x

Chiffy i assume that the one you've seen is the Grimsby branch ?......if yes i've looked on Smyths availability on thier website and the only one its coming up with is one in Edinburgh (i wish that the website tech person would update thier stock check cause its saying the Grimsby store is out of stock)

It's a great set so worth tracking down, paint jobs have subtle differences on a few of the figures.

I were in my local Tesco in Leeds last Thursday and they still had about 3-4 of these 4 pack sets on thier shelfs...They do say £15 each but i guess they could be £10 once at the payout scanners but i've already got this pack so i've not taken one to the payout scanners to price check.....

Mate they had about five of them a couple of days ago in the big Tesco near me at Gatwick. I'll be going past tomorrow if you want me to pick one up for you? But you would obviously have to pay the postage, prob about £3-4, but if you want one that badly I don't mind :wink:
