Okay, so when the Graveyard Tree, Madam Leota set and Purple Mansion Rocker became buyable along with the Fantasyland Retro Pin, Safari Rug, and Hippo Rug...I was upset, but it didn't bug me too much. After all, the Mansion Quest was from a tour and the others were a prize pack that replaced the tour. Things that were eventually going to go away. But it still irked me a little. Especially since the Fantasyland Retro Pin and Leota were not sellable.
But the release of the Red Press through tonight's quest really got to me. Okay, so you pay money to get into a park...not directly tied to VMK quests. So if, say, the purple aladdin chair got a limited release like this...no biggie.
But the Red Press isn't a regular quest...it's a get-with-purchase card. Not only that, but (at DLR) you have to walk all the way to the Pooh Corner to get it. AND it has to be prepackaged candy. O_o Do you know how many gummy mickeys I've bought over the past few months just for these presses?
Ever wonder why nobody bothers to buy the shirts at the Star Trader shop in the park? Because the Mickey T-Shirt card you get for it is buyable! Who wants to pay real money for a virtual item that you can get for free in the game anyway?
Sometimes I'm left scratching my head at some of VMK's decisions. Why not the purple ones? Or blue?
ARG! I demand my candy money back!!! [-storms off to find Yavn-]
