Kooky Scientist Theme Officially Retired by Ganz!


webkinz cheatsGanz has officially announced that the Kooky Scientist Theme has been retired.  This theme, which was added to Webkinz World back in 2006 has been a favorite of many players and we know that lots of people are going to be very sorry to see it go.  
 
This is the very first time Ganz has ever retired a Rare theme.  Arte isn't going to be selling these items in the Curio Shop, and they will no longer be available as adoption gifts, so if you have any on your account, hang on to them!  To see a complete list of the retired items, please visit the Webkinz Insider WIki, HERE.
 
This announcement only mentions the "Rare" items in the theme.  At this point we do not know what, if anything, Ganz is going to be doing to the three wShop items and three Curio Shop Only items that match this theme.  For those of you who may be wondering, this theme does NOT have Wallpaper or Floors.
 
UPDATE: as of 4pm KT, GANZ tweeted:
The Screwy Lamp was retired. The Chair and Pedestal were not. The High Tech Bathroom items are not part of the theme

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

Ah, I never got a chance to collect this one... goodbye kooky theme!

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

I knew it, I knew it!! I sure am glad I have all the Science Theme. Wooh Hoo!

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

Good bye, science theme! -waves-

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

In my opinion, if a rare had to be retired, this is the best choice. I am sorry for those who do not have this theme, but of all of them it is my least favorite. I don't think collectors will have much trouble getting every piece of this theme, good luck to you!!

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

Glad to see this is the one going...we have tons of these items...time to make way for the new ones!!!

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

So glad it is this theme! I have every piece!

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

I bought a few of the latest offered...not sure I have them all but glad it's this one!

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

aawww. i love this theme! i'll miss it for future accounts

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

I hadn't gotten around to collecting this theme, but I'm not crying about it -- obviously, it wasn't that important to me. I think I have two of the CSO thinking chairs, and that's it! I can't say I'm really surprised.

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

I am still missing a few pieces to this one... I hope I'll be able to manage to find them around the trading room to complete my set. I am so mad at myself for missing ones of the recent stations, it was one I didn't have but I forgot to log on and buy it.

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

My guess was right! I never really liked that theme, only the globe and the telescope and I have those. I'm glad I didn't sell any of it. I have quite a bit of it that I got from trading card codes and stuff just sitting in my storage rooms. It will trade well in the future.

Oooh, I saw that on Webkinz Newz. I am sad to see this theme go, but I am relieved it wasn't ancient civilization or Egyptian

i agree. and it was a great boy theme too

Re: Webkinz announces Retiring Rare theme!

This is the one I figured would be the one going. I have an awesome little kooky scientist room. Who knows? They might remake it and make an even cooler science theme! we'll miss you kooky scientist theme! ~waves~

I completely agree. I don't care for this theme too much and hope that those who like it have the items they need or will easily get them!

Re: Kooky Scientist Theme Officially Retired by Ganz!

nothing in ww ever has to be retired if they made the curio shop for rare and retired items only . not all of us want or can trade. its that simple. all of us come to the game at different times and those who jsut came to the game and were collecting these pieces must really be wondering what next will be yanked, i mean ive been playing for years and im still not used to it. let alone not even telling any of us what it would be and then not even offering the theme until its 'retirement'.................. not all of us like or want 'the thrill of the hunt'.

Re: Kooky Scientist Theme Officially Retired by Ganz!

I only have a couple of pieces of this theme, but I would have hated to see the Medieval theme go. My mom and I were hoping for the clashing Aztec though...

Re: Kooky Scientist Theme Officially Retired by Ganz!

I have most of it but missing a few pieces. I hope I can find someone who has the rest and trade for them. Grand kids have a couple of things, but not things I don't have yet. It was one of my favorites too. I still don't understand why? It's all computer programing, what should it matter how many themes there are?

My mom and I both believe that the Curio shop should go 'rare only'. You could still do the big rares at intervals, but do the retired WShop themes and the CSO items every hour. Oh well, we can hope for it.

You keep forgetting they want to retire stuff so they can sell it on the eStore. I regret that I did not get as many items as I would have liked. I would like to have gotten more beds and globes and such but as with you my life is not dedicated to getting Webkinz rares or whatever all the time. My kids have so many sites and also I like keeping them outdoors rather then stuck behind a monitor.

Anyway... Not much we can do, any suggestion (which I think is good), will fall on deaf ears. Ganz is only interested in one thing "MAKING MONEY", or wait two things... BOTTOM LINE.

Sorry I'll get off my soap box. =)
