I cant decided whether or not Im happy about this!
Im not buying anytihng Estore (I am not able to), but I wonder whether or not the people who trade 10000 items for a Skateboard, etc., will get lost in the shuffle with people who just bought the Estore version. Hmm. Maybe someone will have both and show us all the comparison

I agree 100%!

This is bad business on the part of Ganz and I hope this spells trouble for them in the future. It will serve them right for their greed. Example, if I want a tea cart, I have to for example buy three new pet items and trade the new pet items to get one good retired item (hey that has been my experience anyway. In effect Ganz gets me to spend about $45 because I want a tea cart. Do you know many "tea cart like" items it takes to get something like the skateboard? A lot! Even if I assume 6 of them (you know trade for valuable things like Wacky jeans and then trade up again) that means the money I would have spent to get one is about $250 worth of Webkinz products. Now...let's assume $6 and I am done.

Bad, just bad business. They have no idea how much revenue they will now lose. In fact, knowing that everyone has and can get the skateboard, in other words it is no longer special, I don't think I will even spend the $6.

So, from $250 or so that they might have gotten out of my pocket pursuing the "special" item, now they probably get...$0. Way to go you geniuses! You had such a good thing going.

I want to know how soon before the Elephant statue, blue dragster and others are "replicated" and how much this will all affect values

everyone who has it will be offering it to everyone and ask for like huge items but no one will ever trade for them cause they can just buy them for like sick dollars each! i would trade them for the red lava since that is like the only one that we don't know is going to the estore

I'm not crying over this for those who over traded for it...that's all part of the trading game.
I'm stoked to get it...we started webkinz a week before the game retired...had we know I would have played a week straight to win the trophy...but hindsight is 50/50...I'm first in line to buy the board!!

I personally don't see what the replica {NOT tradeable} has to do with the other {which IS tradeable} -- the values are supposed to be for Exchange {trade} values but if you can't trade for it how does that one have any value and/or the other one lose value {or much}? You can't trade for a code, it stays on the account it was put in to.

I understand the excitement of people who really want these items and have been unable to get them. They will finally be able to have them in their rooms! I am glad for them.

But for me, I am very disappointed. 98% of the fun of webkinz for me was figuring out how to get priceless items, and being proud when I had them because they were so hard to obtain and everyone didn't have them. Now this changes everything.

Oh well. I guess I will just wait and see what happens, but how can we trade now. Is my priceless item going to stay priceless? Now it seems as much a gamble as the stock market. Who knows?

Actually, the value should not change at all for the regular trophies. People will have one day to buy a replica. THey will own it, but not be able to trade it. For everyone else who misses this one day, or starts after the 7th, they still will have only the same amount of tradeable trophies out there. (Demand will decrease for a little bit, but supply will stay the same)

As long as Ganz does not continue to sell these replicas over a long period of time, In the long run the value should be the same.
