Thanks.  For Biker Scout and Paz, I ordered them separately.  Haven't decided whether I want to keep those pre-orders or not, but decided to get it in first.
I did get the 2 KOTOR figures as well as Mara Jade.

$80CAN + tax for the TVC Speeder bike and Biker Scout?!?!?!?   :crazy:  :crazy:

Even with the Edge Discount, that's insanity at its finest.  I'm glad I got 2 Speeder Bikes way back 10 years ago for what, $25.  And I converted the US price of $45 to CAN dollars and it should be $62 roughly (still insane but not asylum insane).

I get the feeling someone in the chain is giving themselves a nice bonus for XMas.

I actually just cancelled my Speeder Bike.  At $22 for VC figures, then the bike would be $58.  It's not worth that price.  My order of Black Series Bastila Shan and Darth Malak came out to less than the Speeder Bike set.

I did the same math and will be cancelling. I have a couple old speeder bikes and a carded Vintage Collection Biker Scout, so $80 for an upgrade? Don't think so.

The new VC Speeder Bike price dropped to $66.99.  With my 10%, it's $60.29.  I pre-ordered again now.

For those that didn't cancel your originall pre-order at $79.99, you might want to have a look.

Am I going crazy....or did GameStop change their Edge discount policy on reduced price items ending in .98. In December 2022, I was able to get 15% off ( Onyx Level) in-store on a discounted VC Tattoine Skiff. It was $29.98, and I picked it up for $25.48 after my 15% discount.

Looking online today, anything that I put in my cart ending with .98 I'm not getting my 15% off Onyx Level discount. Did something change as of January 2023??

It's  always been 10% for me.  I really should check to see if my level can be upgraded before Fett's ship is available.

Is a .98 item considered clearance by Gamestop (as it is with TRU?)

Before my local store closed down, the manager told me that no EDGE discount was allowed on any clearance or $5 items, and he would never allow me to get any additional discount on the clearance price.

If you've been able to get 10 or 15% off on clearance items up until now, consider yourself lucky because I've not gotten that (although I went through my store to buy GS items usually, not the website).  He had told me that the official policy from HQ was that clearance and $5 Friday items should not get the EDGE discount at all.

I had discount on $5 Friday items. I didn't expect to, but I did. Even the price rag has the member price listed on it.

Yes, this was the thing that annoyed me the most - while the manager at my old Gamestop store enforced the official policy, I went to the GS at Dufferin Mall and found that they were still allowing for the EDGE discount on any clearancce and $5 items that they sold at their store, so there were (and probably still are) stores that varied in whether they followed the official policy or not.

I get the feeling that the manager of my store knew that they were going to be shut down by HQ because their revenues were not high enough and he was trying to boost the store's revenue by disallowing the EDGE discount, obviously in the end it didn't help.
