That's not really the point. He's annoyed because he's having to spend extra money to buy something he is already going to spend money on. And I agree. I'm already going to be spending extra money on a 3DS version of the game, just for the variant figure, just like I did for Spyro's Adventure and Giants, despite not yet owning a 3DS. This just compounds the frustration of spending more money than I should really have to.
Take me out to the black. Tell 'em I ain't coming back.

Well than whatever Activision is doing to force you to buy the stuff must be working.

Again, not the point. Obviously, nothing Activision is doing is making us buy them. Some of us are collectors, though, and are compelled. What Activision is doing, however, is making some of these things a rather annoying nuisance by putting us into a position where we end up with extras that just sit around. Heck, I have three series 2 Cynders. What am I supposed to do with three of them? That's money I shouldn't have really needed to spend.

Precisely. I try very hard to minimize duplicates. I can usually turn around and sell the singles on eBay for near retail, but it's never even money. :/ I sold a handful of Jet-Vacs and S2 Cynders during Giants because I found myself with a 3DS, Wii, and WiiU starter packs. It is what it is.

All that shows to the game developers is hey this is working, lets release more since it is working. It doesn't matter if you go off later and resell what you don't want. It's just showing them to do it again for the next game because they are being bought.

Crud. I always have such a tough time getting my hands on Walmart exclusives.

WTF - Walmart.com lists it at $99.99 now. I hate Walmart.

Yeah, that happened almost immediately. It's got to be a mistake. No way that's the final cost.

On the Walmart website is also an exclusive Magic three-pack that's got Mega Ram Spyro, Super Gulp Pop Fizz, and one of the newbs - I just can't recall the name.
