Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!


Automotivethemelogo.png   Superhero_Theme.png
 
In an unannounced move, Ganz has retired two Room Themes from the W Shop and moved them to the Curio Shop. They are the Automotive Theme (also called the Cars Theme) and the Super Hero Theme. Click on their names to see all the items in these two themes.
 
These themes will no longer be found in the W Shop. But our Webkinz Insider members will be relieved to know that Arte will still be selling the various items randomly, in his Curio Shop. They will be labelled Arte's Favorite, and their prices will fluctuate from 20% above the regular price, to as much as 40% off! Arte's stock changes every hour so watch for bargains!
 
You can see all the items of these themes, and all other Room Themes, in our WIKI.

Thank you for posting webberlily. at least I can still buy these items in the curio shop.

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

Thank you for posting this, Webberlily. Good to know this information.

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

More themes retiring???
Does webkinz know what they're doing anymore? I think they're starting to mess with the room designers of webkinz. I know I'm not happy with all these rooms retiring / going to curio shop. They better design some new rooms themes that are for everyone, not just deluxe members.

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

Wow that's a shocker!!! No heads up on the retired items again until they already took it out! Why are they not informing us on the item retiring as much anymore? It would have been nice to know a week earlier for those who still would have like to have these items. Now to try and get the whole theme through the curio shop is going to be a pain

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

that's not really nice to just retire and not tell us

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

Very sad to see the Super Hero Theme moved. I loved buying the Wraparound Computing Chamber with a coupon and then using it to move "cash" between accounts and trading. Since Arte doesn't accept coupons, I'll be back to the less expensive Mega Stove and Enchanted Steam Engine for transfer and trading purposes.

I really, really wish they'd tell us this stuff ahead of time. It seems unnecessarily complicated and even a little mean to surprise us.

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

I don't get it. There's not many boy room themes for one. Not to mention they're taking room themes away and not making new ones. Good Grief.

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

WOW! So glad I snapped up some of the auto theme during the last theme mystery, but don't think I got all the pieces and I did not get the superhero theme. Glad we can find them in the curio shop. Will just have to visit there more! I am working on making a room for every theme, but this rapid retirement trend is making that hard!

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

wOw and thanks for the info WebberLily AND lemony

As a Deluxe member, I hope the entire theme isn't retired to Deluxe only like this hours' table

g00d to know the themes will still be available in some form!

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!



1 - Not a fan of all these 'sudden retirees'

2 - Not many good BOY themes for our SONS - why do they add Skater Kat (my boys love it) and then remove a Newer theme?????

3 - Really wish we had SOME notice to finish a room project before everything gets yanked. Some people can't sit around all day for weeks waiting for Arte to have ONE piece of a theme....

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

Yeah...I was planning on making a superhero room for my new boy hippo and my new boy dog. I am upset that they expect us to be able to wait around all day for these items to show up...

They should give us some prior notice. I hope that they will come out with some new not-deluxe-only themes. At least 1. They've retired 4 themes available to all members and given back 3 items.

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

no happy to hear the automotive theme has gone. i have the super fan but none of the automotive. wish we had gotten some notice.

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

It's a shame that we won't have these themes at our fingertips all the time, but I'm glad to know they aren't completely gone. I hardly ever use the automotive theme and had no major room projects for either, so having them as CSO items will be adjustable for me.

Thank you for the info, Webberlily

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

Right now, at 4:00 PM KT there are Sweet theme items, as well as a chair from the Super Hero Theme Infinite Inferno Captain's Chair for 908 KC regular price was 950 KC I believe. in Deluxe at the Curio Shop. They're all listed as Arte's Favorites.

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

It would be nice if Ganz would give us a little advanced notice when they retire rooms. You would think they would want to keep their players happy. Retiring room themes without letting players know in advance is a little mean and slightly underhanded. I don't understand their reasoning on this.

Shame on you, Ganz! This is not how a company should treat its LOYAL customers!

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

The Car Counter from the Automotive theme is available for 5 PM in the regular Curio Shop section for 215 KC

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

Phew! I already had the automotive theme but did not have the superhero one, I am relieved that it has been moved to the curio shop!

Re: Automotive and Superhero Themes Retire From W Shop!

For those looking for the car and superhero theme here is a link to the Curio Shop thread. Sometimes people post there for ** (Arte's Favorite) items.
