Need urgent info about T.E. Sticks


#1

Sup guys!

I’m having probably the best opportunity to get me a TE Stick and not have to pay $300+ for it (the taxes here are crazy man). A friend of mine is in Orlando and I want him to get me a T.E. Stick there, if possible, but I need to know two things:

First, is there any store around that area where he can find a TE Stick that you guys know of?
Second, what’s the dimensions and weight of a TE Stick?

I really appreciate any help, my friend will be back on the 16th. I hope this is the proper section too.

Thanks for your time guys! o/

$100 shipped brand new round 2 te stick by ordering from gameshark store and using the coupon in the thread by MarkMan
http://shoryuken.com/f177/9-9-9-14-mad-catz-sale-20-30%-fightsticks-%24100-f-s-round-2-te-250591/

But if you are stuck on getting it from a store near you then a local Best Buy or GameStop or something but it will run you atleast $120 or so and it may or may not be used. not sure if that helps any

gamestop is $165 for a new one since most only carry the TE S now… you find a gamestop with a used one that is really rare. But like Mufasa2 said. the madcatz online sale is your best bet to save money. $100 US shipped.

We’ve had this issue. Cannot be shipped easily to Brazil.

To OP: There appear to be several Gamestops in the Orlando area. I would advise you not be picky and settle either for the SF4 TE Round 1, Round 2, TE-S (either color) OR the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 TE as they’re all the same aside from minor cosmetic differences. Also you should specify if you want it for the 360 or PS3

Tell your friend to call these stores for availability:

Supposedly these stores have them, but it would be best for your friend to call these stores to make sure they have them before he takes the trip.

The stick they have listed is the round 2 edition for $129.99

SF4TE
DIMS: 15.75"(400mm) x 9.85" (250mm) x 5.9" (120mm) (Estimated w/stick height included)
WEIGHT: 6.25lbs (Estimated)

I just got back from europe, took my t.e. with me. The box it comes with is very large, so your friend will probably have to throw it away because it wil eat up alot of space.

Thank you very much for the fast and precise answers guys! That’s really what I was looking for.

Also I would like to add another question, since the MadCatz store is still having the $100 sale, how long those it take to ship within US territory? It’s possible for me to order online from Brazil and have it shipped to the hotel my friend is staying? Will it get there before the 16th? (Actually a monday, tuesday arrival would be more appropriate.) Based on you guys’ experience with internal shipping would you consider that a viable option?

I’ve found the dimensions for the Round 1 TE Sticks, are they the same of a R2?

EDIT: Ev1l’s dimensions are more accurate. Thank you very much!


#7

Shipping within the US is usually fine but where I you I would send Markman a PM about the expected shipping times for Madcatzes stores. Also the weight of the TE stick is according to Amazon.com 9.6lbs. not 6.5lbs. (hopefully that won’t make a difference). Your friend would also need to talk to the hotel about how they handle shipping and receiving stuff.


#8

Unless you get overnight delivery or something I highly doubt it, in which is very expensive. The weekends coming so theres no shipping on Sunday. So your best bet is to get your friend to get you one.


#9

Hey guys!

Turns out it’s been really hard for my friend to move around and get the stick cuz he’s with a traveling group as well so basically he gets up do whatever is schedule and return to the hotel late at night. So the best option is for me to order online and have it sent to his hotel, he will leave Thursday afternoon, so I’m ordering for the MadCatz store (game shark store) with the Next Day shipping.

I put the promotional code but it didn’t showed up in my order, why is that?

Here’s a pic:


#10

Oh I just saw what went wrong, I order the R1 T.E instead of the R2… darn it! Let me cancel it and do it again… ¬¬’

Man, I’m nervous, I really hope the order gets there asap.

Nothing to see here guys… xP

The 20%* OFF Super Street Fighter IV includes the following… CODE = SUPERWCG

lol, i was about to post that you ordered the SSF4 stick and you put the wrong code.


#12

Dammit!

Looks like I can’t place the order because my Credit Card info is from Brazil and the shipping address is different that the billing address even though I have an international card. Whyyyyyyyyyyyy Lord, why? And I can’t edit the billing address to an international one… =(

It’s becoming harder and harder to own a T.E Stick, I guess I won’t be leveling my game so soon…

Oh well I’m going to think of some other solution…


#13

You could try and see if theres an option for phone orders and just suck up the long distance charges.


#14

Best bet would still be for your friend to call around locally, there has to be a stick in stock somewhere around him.
