I really don't see how the value can go down, these that we are going to buy are for our account, we can't trade them or send them, so the originals shouldn't go down. Also, Ganz realizes that the Blue Dragster is highly sought after and that the majority of them have disappeared into nothingness when people who had the first ones let their accounts expire. I have to say there isn't THAT many people left in WW that were here since the beginning, if you look at peoples pages the majority have been here since 2007 when WW really starting getting popular. So, don't get your knickers in a knot and let people enjoy seeing that little blue car sitting in their room...... Just like I will be.

The value has already gone down extremely. Believe me I am an owner of an original and have traded all day long today and every person I have shown it to has laughed in my face and then left me in the room and started talking among thier friends saying LOL LOL and all kinds of mean things. It is so awful that I do not think I will ever show this item to anyone in the trade room ever again. I will send it to one of my kids to put in their garage so that I can put the whole incident out of sight and out of mind. I traded away three extremely good items about a week before the whole estore replica stuff started. Before thier was ever talk about the elephant statue even going to the e-store. Had I known then that an e-store replica was even a possiblility I would never had traded away the items I had to trade to get the original blue dragster. I will never get those three items I gave away back. It would be impossible so I just lost out for nothing now.

So you may say the value won't change but if you trade even just go in there and watch what goes on because the value of the original has already been changed forever.

So I just say Thanks a lot Ganz.

Just to let you know. The red dragster is not yet retired. It is still listed as an exclusive item in the Wshop under exclusive and is also available in the wish factory on my webkinz account.

If, when you hover over it, it says replica, you'd know right away that it's not the real thing. So, using that logic, those who wanted the original will find it just as difficult to get. For everyone else, maybe those who weren't into the WW or don't have enough tempting things for a trade, the replica gives them an opportunity to have the item, as well. I don't really see how the original loses it's value. To those whom the original appeals to, the replica simply won't do... in theory, of course. Right?
The value has already gone down here, and one reason it goes down is demand for the item. More people will have it now, so it won't be as coveted. Even if you can't trade it, more people than before will have it, so the demand will go down.

I wasn't in WW when this item was originally offered, but I have mixed feelings on the replicas.

Good It is great if someone wants it, but was not around to get it.
Bad Then again, despite the fact that replica is in the title -- it takes away the value of the original.

I have a better idea. Create new things and keep the past in the past.

Exactly! You won't be able to see the "replica" tag while your pet is driving it around the room. Unless you are a die-hard collector and originals and rares are important to you. The replica title will not matter, except if you are the ultimate collector - then you will need to have both!
