This is a clearance line, so is reserve and collect only, and will be very limited - I know they have some SP packs in Swindon (my nearest store). Best of luck!

Cheers Scowie - doing my best! Thanks for the rep. :thumbsup:

Chuffed to have two hot deals on the front page -

Just ordered one for my son whos birthdays is on Tuesday - what a result.

Yeovil High St and Poole High St both have them in stock - hope this helps someone.

none in stock around manchester....needed one of these too!

got one of the SP ones at Parkgate retail park!

Just ordered both, as a temporray solution for my degrading headphones. Cheap and cheerful, and gives me time to get a decent pair of headphones.
The SP one has volume control.

Nice spot!

I've reserved a micro kit purely to use the three screen protectors on the LCD screen on my Fuji S5600 - presuming they fit of course, but worth a punt at 99p.

Thanks,

groggy - they have a couple at Altrincham Stamford New Road if that's any use?

Great find, I brought this when it was a little dearer and it was a absolute bargain then, stock available in Brighton Carden Av and Eastbourne Admiral Park if anyone is around that area.

That is a hot one
The screen protectors are worth the money alone. They will work great on my mobile phones (N80 and w850i) and for the external screen of my 9500 communicator. The cleaning cloth is an essential accessory also.
Voted accordingly, thanks.

Can anyone who buys one of the GBA SP packs let me know if their "Ergonomic handgrip with joystick control" works properly. I bought one of these packs from Toyrs R Us for about £10 quid when i bought my GBA and the joystick would never work properly so i couldnt use it. I never got round to returning it but am curious if mine was a one off or its actually a design fault.

Well, i've got mine and there is no "joystick control" element, its just an ergonomic hand-grip to make it more like you are using a video console controller.

And of course you get the case, car charger & earphones. The box doesn't mention any joystick control thingymajig anyway, so im guessing argos's description was a bit wrong then. Maybe there are two kinds of GBA essentials kits out there.

Anyway, for 99p im certainly happy with it.

Thanks for the reply. My guess is they removed the joystick bit as that it what didnt work for me. I bought mine over 2 years ago so i guess they have changed it since.

Sorry if this disappoints anyone but the screen protectors are only 45mm x 32mm

I noticed LOL
Still worth 99p though, the cleaning cloth is worth that. The game cases will be very handy for my ever growing collection of memory cards and the zip up hard case is perfect for my w850i HeHeHe
Fits like a glove.

Car charger alone should be worth 99p..

Thanks dancrawley

I couldn’t agree more, I purchased 3 sets for the extract same reasons

I reserved 4 SP kits at Stechford Birmingham for today but I am now unable to pick them up. If anyone wants them the reservation number is 002825.

As far as the screenies were concerned, they were all flawed :-(
Nasty glue marks on the underside of them all. Never mind, it was still a good deal.
