    Hehe, was amazed when they said you can get as many as you like, so i spent £6 on a GTA SA guide and got 15x I Robots and 10x Osbournes. :)

    It's always nice to hear that people have taken advantage of offers such as this just to sell them on eBay for profit. Never mind anyone else who missed out on one because you, eh?

    That's the spirit Del Boy. Nice to see the good folk of the forums lining your pockets :rolleyes:

    Oh...and i think you'll find it's a 'dog eat dog' world?


    Thanks for the heads-up ami, that I-Robot set looks nice. May have to take a trip to MVC and get myself ONE.

    What you do is your business, no law against making a fast buck. It's more about not coming on here and rubbing it in the faces of people who perhaps could not take up this offer because some greedy muppet bought all the stock in their local shop.

    I had intended to offer 5 up here, clearly they wont be wanted.

    Oh and i was not rubbing it in anones faces, just pointing out that you could have as many as you like.

    But people all too often jump to conclusions here.

    Clearly, that's why you mentioned it when Aretak sounded you out?

    How stupid of me to jump to the wrong conclusion :suicide:

    If you're serious then I'd love I Robot for a £5!! If you're selling them all for profit then fair enough, we've all got to earn money somehow but if you're willing to let me have one at cost then pm me.

    My nearest MVC is over 20 miles away and I don't have a car so no chance of picking one up myself!

    Sounded me out? No, from the off jumped to the conclusion that they were all for ebay.

    I have highlighted it as clearly you missed it.

    Now did i mention ebay before he assumed? NO

    Oh and as i pointed out the store i got em from had boxes of them so who missed out eh?

    A 'doggy dog world' eh? You're obviously a man of incredible intelligence, so I won't bother continuing this.

    I agree with Del Boy that some here may have jumped to conclusions, he didnt mention Ebay & could have offered them later on over at the Classifieds ?

    If the offer is still on Del I will take you up on your kind offer & take one at £5 plus P+P ?

    :rolleyes:

    Just nipped out to the Middlebrook (Bolton) MVC to see if I could snag an I Robot. Very luckily I managed to pick up the last one in the store (they had quite a few Osbournes / Heathers etc). The guy did seem confident they would be getting more in stock though.
    Didn't even have to spend the extra £5!

    Great spot, thanks to those who pointed it out! :thumbsup:

    Bargain!! :) ...PJ

    I have to laugh...

    Did you let anyone have a copy of I-robot at the discount price then Del Boy or are you just hoping they'll all buy one off your classifieds thread for a tenner.

    That's the last time I jump to conclusions!

    I stand by my original thinking: to get a bargain, post about it on here, preach about how you were going to offer them out at sale prices but then try and profit from the other members of the site is (in my ever so humble opinion) more than a little wrong.

    He's also charging a pound on top for p&p so it' actually eleven quid.
    100% profit obviously wasn't enough.
