Lotus FLow3R.. A C O L L E C T I B L E ?

Will buying multiple copies of Lotus Flow3r be a worthhwhile financial
investment for collectors and sellers..or will it just be an extravagance for
us fams with a few extra bucks to play with?

why would it be collectible? There is nothing rare about it

I was thinking the same thing. If it is only available through Target stores, how long will it remain in print? I have purchased other titles in the past that have been Target exclusives and they were only carried for a short time. In a few years, this US version may be difficult to find.

I can think of far more rarer items to invest in if that's what floats your boat.

Are people selling it at an inflated price to those in Europe that can't get it yet?
If so, that's some lame-ass, BS!!
When Planet Earth came out I spent most of my time at the HQ instead of here. I remember alot of nice souls in the UK offering to send discs to people in the US for no profit at all...
Seems everyone that got sent a Daily Mail version of PE from a our friends in the UK should now return the favor with a Target version of the new one...

have you seen how many copies there are at any given Target? tons. they're going to have this in stock for years.

it's going to end up about $5 in a year, just so they can get rid of them, the same way The Rainbow Children is now $5.99 at Best Buy. I remember a stack of Crystal Balls behind the counter at Sam Goody around the year 2000 being sold for $5 as well.


But I have decided to start picking up a second copy of his post-WB albums whenever I see them, since god knows when any of them will be back in print again, if ever. I needed replacements for Emancipation, CB and Rave. Not because of over-use. Just general MIS-use.....

The one I went to,only had them at the end of one of the check out lanes. They had the banner,and floor mat up by the new release section,but they were not in the new release rack,and I felt they should have been,since it is a new release,and since they had the banner there,that is where people would be looking for them. At first I did'nt think they had put them out,I had to ask where they were. confused

and the great thing was, the cash registers were equally spaced out from another and i think that was brilliant, and as i went for a pee in the shopping mall after having a tea and walking left towards the bank...

Opps, this is not the i have nothing to add but mundane chat crap site..."a defeated sigh"

GONE
