Okay, I have an official vent! The Santa Barbara science museum Sea Centre just opened about two weeks ago. As a souvenir they issued a gray octo beanie babie with red eyes I believe? Did ANY true octo people get this or was it all Mid-West housewives who collect Beanies to put on Ebay?!! People who never even went to the centre, ordered these over the phone and the they sold out! To top this off, it was retired just after it was issued. Now it is going for 6x the amount it was probably sold for. Granted, Ty is issuing a "normal" version with green eyes for the usual 6-10 USD range. But it just ticks me off when something like this happens... Okay, I'll climb off my soapbox now....
