GameStop Offers Western Emmet Pre-order Bonus

Postby Staff » Wed Feb 05, 2014 12:50 am


Western Emmet


The LEGO Movie Videogame is nearly upon us and GameStop is offering a pre-order bonus. You can get the above-pictured exclusive Western Emmet (check out that face!) with your pre-order of the game. Bonus is valid for all systems (3DS/2DS, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, PS Vita, Wii U, XBox 360, Xbox One). Sorry, PC owners, you can get the game but no minifigure. Hit up Gamestop to choose your system's game. The game will be released this Friday February 7.

My family would consider this sad, but I preordered the PS3 version just for the minifigure and ticket offer. I just hope that the ticket works at theatres near me, and that the weather doesn't take a drastic turn Friday.

I'd assume that since Walmart has a different exclusive figure for pre-order that they would be separate but don't know for sure.

No minifigure for the PC version buyers? Too bad.

The Walmart page says that the minifigure is inside the case, I'd imagine it's the same for the Gamestop version as well.

I hope so. I'd hate to get there Friday morning and find out that they're all out or try to give me a copy without the minifigure. They almost got away with doing something similar with a different game.

I just checked out the Walmart exclusive. I think I'd more lean toward that one. Real question is what these things will be going for on ebay, as I have no desire to buy two copies of the game. Iron Patriot is going for about $30 so maybe it make more sense to buy two and sell the game.

Okay, so the Walmart exclusive looks like it will be packaged in the box just like Iron Patriot. The Gamestop is in a separate bag (just saw it yesterday at a store).

Both AMC and Regal are running specials for their rewards members. AMC Stubs members get the same robo DJ (CMF DJ with different head and hair/headphones) from WM at the theater when showing their card and getting a 3D ticket. Regal Crown Club members get an Emmet in Pajamas (same body as the pajama kid with teddy bear from CMF) when showing their card and getting a 3D ticket.

To be honest, with the abundance of Emmet figures in the line and easy to acquire CMF Pajama kid, the Regal promo isn't as attractive. The Robo DJ at least has a robot head and a new hair color with headphones. Too bad I dislike the AMC's around here.
eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

I'll be getting the AMC promo probably but I will try to get this Emmet elsewhere, as well as PJ Emmet.
Thought you'd like this about the Vatican cameos.

I walked into GameStop this morning to pick up my preorder. I didn't see a minifigure, so I inquired about it. The manager told me that an employee took them and distributed them to his close friends and that they were all out.

You might want to try a different game stop. I went into one today and asked if they had any extra and told them that I bought the game at another store and did not receive one. They went ahead and gave me one even without receipt.

I thought about that, but its probably a little late at this point. I'll just check ebay or bricklink sometime.
