I like it. I very rarely buy from the E-store, but I have always wanted one of these. I might get it.

I'll pass on this one. It's not that special to me, even though it's retired or something. Thanks for the notice!

Come on! If I owned the thing already, I would be furious! I wish they wouldnt do it. The old value will be dopped tremedously! Just another scam to get your money. THEY themselves said virtual items were worth nothing! I love the eStroe pets, but the items are just plain scams. I will not be feeding Ganz on this item

I honestly don't even see the point of buying any estore replica of a real item, to me it just seems worthless, I mean what is the point of buying an item like that anyway you can't really show it off. The main reason most people have items like that is to show them off in the trade rooms. Buying a replica you can't do anything with it but sit it in your room. To me that is a complete waste of money. I fortunately traded away three really good items to get the real thing so I will not be wasting my money on August 1.

What are they going to put in there next the retired cheecky cat and dog, a virtual only pet version of it or the purple which hat? I bet people would really dislike that.
Part of the reason Ganz does this is their own personal greed. These items sell for hundreds of dollars on virtual sell sites, so Ganz decided to try for a chunk of that profit themselves, by selling the items for a cheaper price. But they cdidn't want to make the owners of the originals mad, so they had to make it so the replicas couldn't leave the buyers account.

Wow, finally my dreams will come true! Sorry everone who actually owns the exclusive object!

Everything*

I personally don't like ganz doing this, though I will buy one. . .it is unfair to the owners. However, I think I'd love to have one because I collect cars. . .and now for some reason, the red lava will be worth more. I don't know why, but it just will be.

Personally, it does not bother me in the slightest. Because, now, EVERYONE has the chance at it. Not just the people with the crazy year one items. It kind of bites in that it's taking the thrill of some of those trades. But in the long run, I am happy to see them make replicas of these items. I have gotten all replicas, besides the ice cream tree and will be getting this one.
