CALLING ANYONE WHO TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE DEAL IN NOVEMBER 06...

This set was available at Argos before Xmas as one of their megadeal (1/2 price + free 50 peice set) I managed to buy mine for 14.99 using the 10.00 voucher!!

HOWEVER, it was only on Xmas Day when the case was unsealed, we found that despite the Argos description AND the outer packaging (at the time) indicating that it contained flexors, connectors and xtenders they were not in the case - the contents where made up of 275 other standard pieces.

Yesterday i contacted Megabloks on 01844 350033 explaining the problem. When I gave them the serial number on the cardboard sleeve, the lady asked when would be convenient for me to receive the parts not present in the box. A courier has just delivered a box each of the absent items (totalling 75 further pieces.)

This tip is not only intended as help for anyone else who took advantage of the original deal and has realised pieces missing, but also heralds a big 'thank you' for the excellent customer service given by Megabloks

Thanks for posting but unfortunately I have thrown out the packaging.
Didn't think to check contents :oops:

Whatever was in it, it was worth double to hear the "YEESSSSS" from my 7 yr old on removing the wrapping paper :thumbsup:

jelli89 :- Pls choose PRODUCT option while posting deals so that you can include a price :)

Just realised this is a Tip... thanks.

Sorry... bit confused :? - i thought I had to post it as a 'Tip' because it is not a current product deal. The advice is meant for people who have already bought the product :-(

Apologies... its my fault. I got confused ;-)

Was 'the serial number on the cardboard sleeve' a registration/individual number or just the barcode? If it was the barcode, could you forward this (or post) to 'Spiderman' & they could still claim?

Thanx jelli89, I've just phoned them, didn't have to give serial number, they did say that the cardboard sleeve on the box is the wrong one and that Argos were informed. Didn't think she was going to give them to me, but she said she would make an exception. Cheers:thumbsup:

Woohoo ! Just phoned them too ! Didn't ask for any proof that i'd bought one either.

Their excellent customer service girl said Argos should have told the customer when buying the case the the items inside were different from the packaging.

She also said they don't normally stock these extra Flexor parts & Extenders so has placed an order with Hong Kong.

She took my name & address and said i should have them in about 4 to 5 weeks ! :thumbsup:

Great news tazzababe and Mecoconuts...Pleased to hear you will get the parts (eventually) - i think they underestimated how many sets went out with the incorrect packaging - heads will roll somewhere! - but i think it's a breath of fresh air to find a company who will make good their mistake:thumbsup: :) :thumbsup: :)
#11
Nice one jelli89 :) I'm sure this will help a lot of people who had pieces missing from their sets!
