This thread is full of whine. If you don't like it, don't buy it. No need to classify anyone who does buy it as some type of mental defective just because you can't see the worth. That just makes you a sad, sad person.

The only whine in it is coming from the "don't like it, don't buy it" crowd, who seem to be personally offended when a blatant rip-off is pointed out. Mysteriously, people are perfectly capable of distinguishing between their personal tastes and an objective assesment of the value of an item.

As a hypothetical example, two people collect swords. One buys a hand-forged sword from a swordsmith for $2000, the other a factory stamped stainless steel "Limited Edition" replica for $1000. I don't collect swords, yet I can objectively determine that Person A probably got value for money whereas Person B paid drastically over the material value for the "Limited Edition" tag.

Whether he's happy with it or not is irrelevant, whether I collect or value them or not is irrelevant, it's still objectively a rip off and can be labelled as such without trite aphorisms being waved around.

Its only a rip off when your not happy with it. Your personal opinion on whats a rip off and what isn't, is worth less than that Pvc statue.
