Because with your 10 released every so often even the slight change would change the value as well.
If 10 were released each month and everyone bought them, that's 10 more that weren't there.
And these pets are RARE so that makes a huge difference.
Even if it doesn't over the first month it will over the first few months.

But those people need to think about everyone else who would enjoy having those pets. It was their choice to spend that kind of money on a webkinz, and it's a risk they run by doing so that others may get it for free or cheaper somewhere else. Besides they would still have an original plush pet with code. We'd just be getting the virtual pet, which as so many people say isn't worth much anyway.

I think they absolutely need to do this, they'd also make a lot more money, and a lot of webkinz fans happy.

Honestly I don't like that webkinz is about having things worth LOTS of money. It shouldn't be about all this value (which is why I'm not big on trading either). I don't want a Cheeky Dog because it's worth a lot. I want it because it's cute, and would be so fun to have on my account to play with. I like collecting because it's fun, not so that I can have some "rich" expensive collection of stuff. That isn't what webkinz should be about.

i agree, but not everyone have a estore account, and others spend alot of money to buy those pets beacuse they are rare, and the PSI would not be as valuable,
i doubt that ganz would do this, but i would be happy if they did

Now that they have the estore cards in the stores, anyone can get them on the estore. I think not having to use a credit card really clears up that issue. If people view the virtual as a waste of money, then of course their only option is to spend the $500 on a stuffed animal.

Again I really don't have a lot of sympathy for those who want to turn this cute game in to a thing of value. Trading and collecting should be for the fun of it, not for "value". So many people would benefit from the fun of having these pets, that I think it far outweighs the problem of the few people who could afford a $500 stuffed animal. In the end they still have that "valuable" collectible (stuffed animal) that they paid for. We wouldn't get that.

I fully support this Idea, Ganz has not been treating the retailers in this area very nice for the last couple of years, I normally don't buy E-store , but I would Love an opportunity to get a Sig. Timber-wolf, Never saw one in this area or a Nightmare, I don't care about those with selfish motives, or the value drop, It's not fair some were not given the chance to get one in the first place.

I would want that to happen for others, but unfortunatly I am not an E-store shopper because I don't really want to use real money for virtual stuff for my pet, I would rather just get my webkinz and try to win the contests--so everything is free!

Its not being Selfish.
It happens in anything you collect.
If you're a die hard collector you'll spend the extra money to get the pets/things you want.
If ganz made it where everyone could easily get every pet I don't believe there would be any fun in collecting them.
In any collection its always fun to showcase your rarest item.

I do however think that some pets should be available online.
Such as the nightmare. Like you said none came to your area.
Maybe around the holiday they're for? That would be a good idea.

Then if was like the lava dragon and retired then they wouldn't have to bring it back next september/october.
However, I don't believe retired pets should be on there.
It messes with the values and their rare-ness.

However, if GANZ started putting signature pets up there for the month they're for I don't see why there would be a problem with that.
But not retired pets (no matter how awesome that would be lol)

Default Re: Make Retired Pets into eStore only.

I agree with robert. Ganz never promised they wouldn't put out a virtual pet of the retired pets. Just that they wouldn't be making anymore stuffed animals of it. It's not Ganz fault that people go out and spend such HUGE amounts on retired animals. If you decide to do that, then that is your personal choice. It's a gamble to invest huge amounts of money in something like this. Sometimes they end up not being worth what you paid. So yeah, it is not very nice to say it's more important to keep your value of a VIRTUAL pet item then to allow THOUSANDS of others to enjoy the pet online. Your "rare" stuffed animal would still remain rare.

Collecting is fun because you have a lot of nice things of a certain item. I enjoy my collection, which is rather big of webkinz. Not because of their value, because it's fun.

I'm completely for them putting them in the estore, I'm not concerned with people wanting to make this an expensive hobby, when it shouldn't be. They obviously aren't concerned with others not being able to have one.
