You keep forgetting they want to retire stuff so they can sell it on the eStore. I regret that I did not get as many items as I would have liked. I would like to have gotten more beds and globes and such but as with you my life is not dedicated to getting Webkinz rares or whatever all the time. My kids have so many sites and also I like keeping them outdoors rather then stuck behind a monitor.

Anyway... Not much we can do, any suggestion (which I think is good), will fall on deaf ears. Ganz is only interested in one thing "MAKING MONEY", or wait two things... BOTTOM LINE.

Sorry I'll get off my soap box. =)

there was a lot of opposition to this and support. but ganz is going to do what they do. and there is a hint in there that arte might find more pieces! so, the best we can hope for is estore. and i believe that is exactly where it is going.

i agree totally with basmat. she said it perfectly

mega, this is a fine soapbox to stand on!

Goodbye, Kooky Scientist!

When they gave us the hint "It is big!" I was worried we'd lose the Ancient Egyptian theme, which is probably my favorite.

I like the Kooky Scientist theme, but I agree with a lot of others. If something had to go, this was the one I'd miss the least. I've already collected the pieces I want, and I already have a Science Room that I really like, so I wasn't collecting any more. And most of these items never fetched much in the trading room. But I did especially like the globe, the dream-o-meter bed, and the brain!

I agree with some other comments that it's a shame to lose another theme geared to boys. Hockey, space, kooky scientist, even the old kid's theme were all themes that were good for boys to build with. Oh well, at least new themes have been coming out fairly frequently. I've been waiting for WW to retire one of the overabundance of pink themes, which would have been my first choice for the chopping block.

I agree with ya'll they shouldnt have retired a theme without giving us the opportunity to collect all the pieces. I am just relieved it is this theme and not the Aztec or Egyptian that I am missing pieces to.

How disappointing that Ganz didn't even think to make sure they offered the Incubation Chamber over the last two weeks before retiring this theme... it has not been available for sale in OVER A YEAR!!! It was the only piece I was missing from this collection, and I have heard several other members here mention the same thing.

In reading the posts where people expressed opinions about which theme Ganz should retire, I noticed that Kooky Scientist was a favorite theme for quite a few WI'ers.

Now that we have official confirmation that it is retired, I just want to pass along a few words of support and condolence to everyone who hoped that the science theme would not be the one retiring. I sincerely hope you were able to purchase everything you need and if not, I hope you will be able to find the rest via trading.

Given the overabundance of pink items, I agree with you that the next theme to go would be something pink. Again, I'm very sorry to WI'ers who will miss the Kooky Scientist, especially since it was a good theme for boys.

I was a bit surprised by the article mentioning two W-shop items as being part of this theme. I really never thought of the High-tech toilet and sink as being in this set, and if you're going to include those two, why not the High-tech tub, which matches the toilet and sink?
