Great find thank you!! but anyone getting this beware. . .I reserved it yesterday the 20th when I went to pay for it the cashier said £41.99 I said no it's £27.49 she then went away and came back with a manager who said it has gone back up to £41.99 but argos hadn't updated their website therefore they honoured the price of £27.49 I'm not sure if they have changed it now but anyone wanting to buy this get in quick and pay the price you reserved it at!ps how do i add heat?I'm fairly new to this thanks

I thought I'd get this for my 22 month old nephew. Upon reflection I think maybe it was actually me that wanted it since its a bit much for the little one at the moment. He'll be able to get to grips with meccano in a few years time. Meanwhile I reserved 2 in this mistaken folly. One is reserved in a store in Dartford and one is reserved in Bexleyheath. I hear they have gone back up in price now so if anyone would like to get this for the reduced price you are welcome to take one of my two reservations which must be picked up today incidentally .
#15
On second thoughts Both or my reservations are available to anyone who would like to got and pick them up from the Dartford or Bexleyheath stores today at the reduced price. Remember its at least £15 more anywhere else.

You will of course need my reservation number which I can message you..

I can confirm this is the case. I went to collect my order only to be told the price was now 41.99 or something. I disputed this saying the price online was 27.49. They said it went up from 16th Dec. I objected saying it was still 27.49 on the website and was when i ordered it. I was told that the price online is the price if purchased online but may be different if collected in store. Bull**** I thought and responded that this wasn't made clear to me when ordering nor was it explained anywhere else on the site therefore how can such a position be valid.. They said if you purchase it now then bring in the email confirmation and we will refund the difference. I objected saying I didn't have the money on my card to pay the full price Could they extend the reservation time as I wouldn't be able to make it back in time with my email. They replied saying if the reservation is extended then it would only be available to buy at the new full price. I asked if they had internet access so that I could show them my email. They said they didn't but did finally relent and extended both the reservations to Thursday.
I was thinking why should I inconvenience myself for the convenience of your administration. I'm sure you can work around this.... And they did. Well done argos.

SO this still leaves me with one spare if anyone missed out.

I had the £41.99 / £27.49 scenario at the Rochdale Wheatsheaf store. Argued the toss and got it for the lower price. The manager was quite reasonable and over-rode the till price.


Good to hear. I still have one more set reserved but haven't found anyone who wants it so as of 6pm today its no longer available but if anyone is still interested I can go and collect or simply give you the reservation number for you to collect it at £27.49 rather than 41.99. Cant be bothered to get it and put it on ebay what with paypal and ebay fees it'll hardly be worth it since I'm not looking for a profit.
So Deadline Is 6:00PM Today Thursday 23rd
