I don't know if I like the whole idea of replicas......If something is 'rare' or 'antique' in the real world, it holds value because you cannot get it again. Now the value of some of these old items is taking a nose dive, and it takes away the fun of trying to obtain some of these items! What if I trade all my best items for some bunny ears or the witch hat, and then next week it comes out. I would love to have these items, but I want to get them the hard way. I will NOT be buying this tree, because I already have it. And I also don't know if I want to support the "replica" market.....might just try my luck getting things the hard way! (That being said, if they do offer any old clothes for sale, I'd buy them in a heartbeat! )

I agree completely. Ganz makes MONEY off of people wanting to trade items for the bigger more long-retired items, and I wish they would realize that. Because many people who need the older retired items will go BUY the newer releases because the pet items that come with it are popular because they are new, simply to use the new pet items in trade for an older retired item. Ganz is really shooting themselves in the foot by selling retired items in the estore.

I will not be buying this I have 4 in storage and a few more used in rooms I would rather they brought something older back the blue dragster, I would be all over that or the red or purple lava. I just hope they don't bring back the totem pole!

I don't think it will be as popular as the skater board was. More people have the tree then the trophy. We'll see though! I don't mind them comming out with stuff. I mean, it does take down the worth, but that would be selfish of me and we mght as well be happy for those who never had a chance before!

Uhg, I am starting to re-thing the whole "collector" idea of WW.
It really is the one thrill I get, yes I like the games but getting that item that is so difficult to get just gives me that rush.

I have no idea where you guys are trading because I never see this tree in the trading room, I love it and would "scoop" it up in a minute.

With that being said it is VERY clear that WW is trying to make thing have no $ value by introducing these retired items.
It is a bit crazy to see the REAL cash some of this stuff sells for on other sites.

I seem to be talking in circles here.
i just wish they understood that collecting is a HUGE big deal to some of us and this just destroys that.

Well, luckily, I have like 2 or 3 of the originals, so I'm not getting the replicas.
I wish GANZ would stop making replicas!! The replicas make it so the originals' rareness go down. If tons of people just buy replicas, nobody would want the originals!! I'd like my rare exclusives to stay rare!
