Seems like a right waste, doesn't it? <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

If they just cut down on the production or sold them for slightly less, then I'm sure they wouldn't have to sell them so cheaply at these Warehouse sales.

Apparently at the EL Warehouse Sales over here (no, I haven't been to one, but my cousin did) they were still MIB but 'only' 50% off. Still, it was a big saving, but only if you were paying the hugely inflated prices that they charged in the first place . . . ie the ' US$200.00 Locomotive' sold here for about AUD$600.00 or so (from memory – maybe more), and at the sale it was AUD$300.00.

Even if you took the exchange rate and shipping into account, it was equal to or slightly more than what it sold for retail in the US. Still, they managed to sell them for that price, so in the end, there was no loss, just not as much gain.

If EL in the US would do that, then we wouldn't be having this problem, would we?

Sorry for the rant, but obviously the frustration, anger and disappointment is coming back all over again. Boo Hoo ! <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />
