Luke I think Palisades was very forthcoming when they started the club. They made it very clear it was new territory for them. I know you are mainly citing others; and those I have seen complain are the usual culprits that complain when things aren't 100% what they want. Such is life. I still don't see a need for Palisades to change anything. However, it could be wise for them to add the bit of info that prices could range up to x amount of dollars or more on some of their fair items. But some people would still find something else to complain about. Some of these folks aren't even in the club. They have made it so easy for us already. Too easy from what you said a year ago. I thought the original instructions were clear that there was no real discount, but we would get extras - and we did - an extra Beaker. That alone could have cost us over $30. I don't think any other collectors club would have given away so much stuff or exclusive pics like Palisades has done. I just think some Muppet fans are new to collecting and don't get it. I just don't see other companies being so darn cool. (Yes. Much of this has been an excuse to use smilies I haven't used before. ) Wish we had some penguins.
