[QUOTE=TexasAnne;15786222]I finally found (and am hanging onto) an 80% coupon for the sole purpose of buying the colossal movie screen.QUOTE]

Unfortuantely that coupon will never work on the movie screen - it is a rare item and those are only sold in the Curio Shop... Arte, in his infinate cheapness, does not take coupons.

He does, however, have sales. Some folks might get lucky and pay less than those who bought yesterday (even 10% off is 4000 KC!!!)...

I know Arte has sales all the time, but I didn't think the rares went on sale. That would be great if it did. I bought my big screen and I think I am with the majority that think it's dissapointing that there is no sound. It sure does look great on the wall. I bought it becasue it's not real money. If it were an e-store item, I would not have.

For those who haven't got a deluxe membership, HANG IN THERE, it will be available soon, as everything comes around again, and again, and again. Maybe they will have added sound when it is available again.

I purchased the movie screen and it does look really good in the movie theatre room. The only disappointment is that the movie it comes with doesn't have any sound! I wonder if this is a glitch and there will be sound added later or what. The movie it comes with is a Dex Dangerous movie which is only about one minute long. (I still wish they would let us view those cute "pet of the month" videos on our movie screens.) I also wonder if they will be selling or "renting" movies for our pets to purchase for their home theaters.

There were comments upthread that by offering the screen to the deluxe members first that it was taking away something from the regular members, unlike other deluxe benefits. I disagree with that idea. The deluxe rare is an extra rare, there was another rare yesterday (as is most days) for regular members (I haven't been paying close enough attention to see if Arte still has his "No rare" days). Had they changed the curio to offer rares to only deluxe members, then yes, that would be taking something away.

(Of course, it is super for people who sell Magical Retriever/Mystical Panda cards on ebay for hundreds of dollars to those folks who "have to have it now") If I were a betting person, I would wager huge sums of money that the movie screen will be offered at some point, and relatively soon, to regular members, just as a lot of the e-store items are first offered to deluxe members. And that movie screen will be every bit as good as the ones people bought today. I just think of all the "had to have toys" that parents went crazy over spending huge sums of money or running all over town to buy that now sell for peanuts in thrift stores. I figure in a few weeks, the movie screen will be the same way. How many times can you watch one soundless movie?
Quoting this whole passage because I just think this is so beautifully said. Thank you, mayapal for posting.

Did I buy one today? No, but I did get one and it absolutely tickled me pink. I have a friend much younger than I, whose SOLE goal in Webkinz World is to make KinzCash and he hoards his KC better than Scrooge McDuck. But, he is also reaching the stage in his life where he is starting to think about other people and doing special things for them. So, he spent all that KC and sent me a movie screen. Knowing how important it is for him to reach his WW "financial goals" is and knowing he spent so much to send me the screen made me feel incredibly special.
Oh, what a lovely story, thanks for sharing.

Thank you, mayapal. I really do agree with what you said and how eloquently you said it.

I am really looking forward to making a movie room. And it will be a fun, nice-looking, well-designed room even though i am not a deluxe member and did not get the screen at exactly 8PM kinztime on the first day it was ever available. Just the fact that it was available on a wide scale (not just a handful of really lucky people getting it as an adoption gift) means that the Colossal Movie Screen is finally here after all that waiting since it was announced in May! I will be very happy when i get it, even if the movie isn't all that great, because it will be a fun room to design and put my pets into. I'm excited about it, whenever it happens.

But honestly, if i missed it because i was late logging in or didn't check that day to see if it was available? THEN i'd be upset, because it would be all my own fault!

Yet another savage marketing technique by Ganz. Oh wait, I meant to say "Savy" marketing. Yes, I'm sure that's what I meant.


Seriously I've spent what seems to be quite a bit of my entertainment dollars on Ganz. I'm a little disappointed that Ganz has segmented the site to the point that you have to spend lots of dollars in many different areas to gain access to the full experience.
