Found 7th Dec 2013
Was just in my local Game store (Peterborough, Serpentine Green) and saw they had these Assassin's Creed Statues for £29.99, but they were also marked with a blue sticker that said "2 for £25, stickered items only"
All of the figures had these stickers.
Pretty good deal if you have a friend who wants one, or even if you just want to sell the extra!
I'm not sure if this is a national deal or just my store, though.

This is my first deal, so apologies if I made a mistake!
I forgot to take a picture, unfortunately. And I'm not an Assassin's fan myself, so don't have a receipt, sorry!

Weren't these originally something like £200 in a big fake wooden boxed version of the game that gave you some extra tat like maps and I dunno, badges or something?

If so that's a criminal drop in price for those that shelled out for the version of the game with the statue.

There are collectors editions with figures and the game that come in different boxes. These are not the same, there is no game or any other extras (aside from some DLC).

Darn, so close! I wonder why it doesn't come up in the search? Maybe because of their tags?

I appreciate it isn't the same, the point I'm making is that the £200 game with statue was £200 because it came with a supposedly really high quality statue and now we see them selling for this price. If I were a big fan of the franchise I'd feel like I just had a kick in the teeth seeing this.

Lol. Possibly. The search on this site isn't great though. It is a good deal anyhow so hopefuly more people will know about it now.

The statues are different to that of the collectors editions. I get what you're saying but at £30 or even £40 for the statues and £20-30 for the game it still means the collectors editions are overpriced even with any odd extras. All the AC collectors editions go up in price although the Black Flag one isn't as much as £200. It's around £80 at Game, over £100 on Amazon. Not everyone will be able to get these at this price.

If you put these up for sale now you'd still get people happily paying £25+ each. So it's not like the collectors editions will lose their value because of this or any owners of the collectors editions will be unhappy at seeing them this price.

Worth picking up to sell later.

I sold the first 4 statues for nearly £200 combined on eBay recently.

I'm glad some people have been able to benefit from the deal

Will have to look in my local Game to see if they have in (probably not as its a small store). Might get 2 Edward Figures if do manage to find them and split the price with a friend. £12.50 figure sounds a lot more tempting them £29.99

they had loads in stockport, then all disapeared now i know why

Got mine only 2 Edward figures though no blackbeards in my local (Eastbourne)

Sucks the DLC cannot be used on next gen though

2 for £50 now.

now just £19.99 each, not £29.99 each, so not such a good deal.
