Exactly.
Some people (I bet most) like the rare pets only because they are dreams, and they are rare, and only the people who actually liked the pets (a very few percent) because they were the pets would buy them.

And if it's just a virtual image or a plush, why do people need them so bad? Some of your statements can be counter-productive.
Well not to be rude to you either hpharrypotterhp but I don't think you completely understood what I was saying. I said it is selfish to think of only yourself. I , like veryone else, like to keep my rare items rare. I would be mad too if I had spent countless time trying to get a super rare item and they brought it back. I don't care if people care about their items. So don't twist it around on me. I think it's selfish when people think "I don't care if no one else got the pet or item, because I did!" I don't care if ganz brings back the rare pets. It's up to them. Again I never said that it's selfish to want to have rare items. I said it was selfish to care only about yourself and what you want. Oh and to answer your last question. Those people DON' T need those pets or items. There are only a handful of things people need. Water, Food, Air, and God. If Webkinz never even existed we would all get along just fine. No one EVER needs a Webkinz. They only want it. I also do not appreciate you calling my posts offensive. They are opinionated. That means they are MY opinion. If you don't like them don't comment or read them. And if they truely are offensive I wouldn't post them. And furthermore if WI found them offensive then they would let me know. So please don't try and interperate what I'm trying to say in a neghative way. No harm meant.

I'm sadly not too surprised at these "re-releases." I have a friend who sells these and she tells me that some of these pets "sell out" in the ordering quickly, but then - voila - we see them being unretired for a "limited release."

Personally, I feel like people are being duped a bit, that Ganz has either kept some back or found some from over producing, so they gloss it over as being a re-release. I don't like it one bit - it's not fair to the stores and harms Ganz's already at times shaky credibility, and in turn harms some of those who were lucky to get said pets and use say the PSF to trade with.

Now, I have the gorilla already as well as the elephant. The other pets don't interest me and the Signature Pig never had been retired - at least I know of. It's just so... to me on the whole issue because it'd be better to keep a pet retired than risk your credibility and make people question if you're keeping pets away from people to possibly bring them out of retirement for some reason.

The problem here is one of credibility - once Ganz breaks a commitment they have lost the trust of their clients.

Many people have bought all the "retired" pets with the understanding that this was the last chance. Retiring pets generally sell for more than non retiring pets.

it takes a long time to gain trust and an instant to loose it. Those who paid large sums for retired pets trusting that Ganz would not release them again naturally feel betrayed. Those who bought pets they might not otherwise have purchased for fear of not having another chance will loose trust in Ganz.

This may not be a bad thing - we may all save money now that the only pets to buy are those we like as purchasing any retired pet is a bad risk right now.

That "exclusivity" is part of what made WW fun - trading up until you could finally get that rare item. I was working hard to get to the point where I could finally trade for my dream elephant statue when they were sold on the estore - and have only traded for items that I want for decorating purposes since - because at any point a virtual item could loose it's value when a "replica" shows up.

In this case it's worse than replicas as there is no way to tell the difference between a 2007 pet and a 2010 - at least replicas could not be traded so my "real" elephant statue still has some value.

I'd actually really like to have a love puppy, not because it's rare, but because I think it's adorable. I have a number of retired pets I bought when I was into webkinz that I think are ugly, and which I'd love to get rid of now, but can't get back what I paid on them (e.g. black and white and gold and white cats.) Some of those listed as returning are among the ones I have that I'd be happy to get rid of lol.
