Lucky I did not get the book on friday when I went.

Asked the girl at the counter from simply toys about a deluxe edition book and she said something along the lines of, "Sorry, there will no longer be any deluxe edition book anymore."

Told me that the one they have there is all that they have and will sell. Hopefully there will be one right at the end of the exhibition! Although I felt that the place was a big let-down.

I'm not sure.... still waiting to hear from Singapore Science Centre. I'll try to call them again tomorrow and let you know.

Do you want discount coupons ? I have some discount coupons that allow you to buy the ADULT ticket at $16 instead of $18 , but not sure if you still get the collectible coin with the $16 ticket....

If you want coupons , pm me and let me know how many you need .

Yes while stock last. ;) 1 Adult=1 Medellion

And now it seems that a couple of days after then promotion started, a Family Ticket will give 2 Medellion, intead of 1. Minor mistake made at the beginning of the promotion. :(

Yes, after I heard that they were only giving out one medallion per family ticket , I called up Science Centre and they confirmed that it should be two . The manager must have corrected the mistake the counter staff had made....

Drokk, now they have it! :( And not when I was on exhibition.

Is the book really same than the normal softcover version? It looks like they have just packed it inside of black box.

Hey bro..... it's exactly the same book that you bought for S$65 . They've packed it in a black case with the 4 different designs of the tickets . Basically you are paying an extra $20 for the premiums ( face value of the 4 tickets is $72 alone, if collectors had gone each month just to buy the tickets for collecting )

Unless you collect paper ephemera like this ( some collectors do.... ) I don't think you need to buy another copy of the book if you already have one. :)

The book is the same as the $65 copy?
I thought that there were some more additions to the deluxe book?
If so, what's so deluxe about it?

Erm , the packaging and premiums only, unfortunately ....

I guess it's akin to those DVD boxed sets which come packaged with the bonus statuettes or promotional gifts .... it's essentially the same DVD but the packaging is special .....
