    WOW! That's an amazing price.

    Wish I'd seen this before I placed my order. Now I'll wait longer, and pay more.

    Oh well, at least I'll get the theme tune at the correct speed (R1)

    I've checked all the stores in the North Essex/South Suffolk and no joy :thumbsdow. Not surprising really at that price, makes me wonder if there are any left in the whole country. Anyone know if they are expecting more stock?

    If you "ADD TO BASKET" it shows the price as £23.99. Looks like a printing mistake on their website. :(

    yeah tried it on the website (all wakey area ones)- said out of stock. Did you do it on the website via reserve pick up or did you actually go to the store?

    To be honest i've watched all the Star Wars films to death over the years and although I do love the films, this was a pick it up if you see a "give away" bargain one for me. I would like it for the collection but there's no urgency in me buying it as all it would do is sit on a shelf until I next got the Star Wars urge!

    Just got 2 from Newcastle under Lyme, thanks to a friend from work letting me know they where back in stock.

    They tried to charge me 24.99 each for them apparently the price went back up on Thursday !! but as I reserved for store pickup and printed the number off the screen with the price they didn't have much choice hehehhe.

    ah ha, i have 3 reserved in southampton.. now to find a way to actually get there..
    edit: this is actually just a con, it's not £14.99 in the stores, and the website clearly states the price you pay is the price in store, what a waste of time.

    i think you were just lucky. the website clearly states otherwise, and i phoned up their customer service and they said it's definitely 23.99 not 14.99 and has been since the 8th, it's too far for me to travel and costs too much on the train for me to get there and get screwed over.
    I've unreserved them now, so if anyone lives near the Argos in Southampton High Street (store 441) there are 3 in stock, so you can try your luck if you like.
