Except the only ones who win them are those professional arcade gamers that make a living out of actually finding skill in the luck of the draw games and then sell everything they won cheap for actual retail value on e-bay.
That and I swear that someone pays people to walk around arcades and carnivals with the largest plush thingy they have to prove the games aren't rigged.
Why can't we have some good retail merchandise that we can buy for money and not throw to a middle man and a middle middle man? Games to win tickets aren't exactly fun.
I'd be more "Oooh New Fraggle Stuff" if it was Fraggle Stuff you could walk into a store and directly exchange money for. I never liked the concept of "Not available for Retail Sale" plush toys that are in rigged claw machines or rigged carny games. I remember trying in vain to win a Heathcliff plush well over a decade ago because you can't just walk into Toys R Us and say "Hey! I'd like to purchase that thing that predated Garfield that Garfield totally overshadowed who's cartoon people only remember for the better back up cartoon."
I don't care if these are really good or bad looking. My issue is that I just don't want to get excited for something that I'd likely find buried under a bunch of generic, ugly looking plush animals and knock off Tsum Tsums. And trust me, that's exactly how I always see these licensed crane game plush. At the bottom where you can't win them. The fact that a couple years back I saw a Mega Man in the same state broke me.
Do not get me wrong. I'm happy we're getting some Fraggle something, I just wish it was something easier to access.
