Default Re: Breaking News: Lil Kinz Leopard NOT Retiring!

thanks for the info justin,wendy and cynalot ! It was pretty strange the lil leopard retiring but if the lil leopard isn't retiring what is?! the big leopard ??? i'm confused!

I bet alot of people will be disapointed learning this as many went out and bought a lil leopard or got it off ebay just because it was retiring.

thanks.

And I believe you when you say you spoke to the Creative Director....However...he/she once hinted before that the Love Puppy and Sherbet bunny would again be available...and now they have officially retired. So maybe the Creative Director is wrong this time too.

All I can do is shake my head. I believe you but if this is the case this was not just a glitch. Someone typed this message up to be put on the front page and it was approved. Not only that it is mentioned a few times on WW. So I guess in either case Gantz has lied to us. If this was a way for them to push some sales of the leapord I will be very disappointed.

Good point.

And I just want to say to the admins and mods that just because we're confused and posting these pics of the Webkinz News Page for tomorrow, does NOT mean that we're questioning your validity. It seems that you think we are, and we're not ... we're just confused as to how there can be SUCH a lack of communication on the part of Ganz - so much so that the Creative Director says one thing (a few different times) and is contradicted by the website. Just another in a long line of "glitches", I suppose.

AUMagic is right. We are behind you 100% and we trust you. I don't think it causes our allegiance to you or this site to waiver, just our trust in Ganz as a business. They have been pulling back further and further from the company a LOT of us had believed they were. They take away our foreknowledge of Curio sales, they reduce the amount we can get, they tell us that a new Kinz coming out is to be retired, they told us earlier in the year that they may re-instate the most sought after Kinz', they govern the games and disallow credits after a certain point. It seems they mistrust us and are punishing us for something. Unfortunately you are caught in that crossfire as our representative.
PS, Thank you for going to bat for us, it takes a lot of patience and fortitude to do what you and Wendy do and to keep going in the face of such adversity.

This is all a little confusing on all ends. I figure if we all just sit back and hang tight, we will find out what's what here. I have to wonder if Ganz was just indecisive about this issue and spoke before acting.

I can tell you what the CD told me when I asked about the seasonals.

The intention was to leave the door open for a future rerelease but they were constantly fielding inquiries from distributors/retailers as to when they would be available for order and it was just becoming to much of a headache.. especially since they had no plans for them for at least the next two years anyways.

As far as the lil leopard goes, the CD also confirmed that the lil leopard was an error, but that it had not been noticed right away when the list of retirees came down.

I hope that newspaper is telling the truth! I bought one off ebay for like, $18.00, thinking it was going to become very rare, and retire! GRRRR! Arrgg!! I sure hope that for some reason the mix up is a mix up, and it will stay retired! This is about the first WI news article I DID NOT like!!! Sorry if I'm being rude, it just makes me mad...

cynalot did the CD say the big leopard was supposed to be retired instead? I'm just a little confused as which webkinz or lil kinz will retire since the lil kinz leopard retiring was a mistake..
