Each to their own. I can understand a 14 year old kid who's watched the movie a dozen times and bought all the 2009 range not having any interest in the Shads.

exactly and I think the chances of that kind of person buying this set anyways is slim

these sets are for hardcore collector's not the 14 year old kid or doesnt know anything past the movie or doesnt have the money to buy them

So members like myself who can't afford the set aren't considered hardcore then despite how big our collections might be without it?

That's not what was said mate. The members of this site as a whole are deemed hard core is how I interpreted that.
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

Dont think Jamar meant it like that Ironblood - it was a follow on statement about "the kid" rather than a seperate statement identifying a new group of people of which I may be one...
