I know I might get castigated for saying this but I'll go for it anyways...
Lego should be about fun, just imagine the delight of childs face as they get hold of a set - can't wait to open it and build the model....
Promos in papers (e.g. the Sun next week) or in comics (e.g. that recent Jack Sparrow set) are something that children can look forward too.....free toys!
Yet the issue I have is the greed of others that ruin the fun for these children....imagine - a child asking their parent for that newspaper toy or going to buy the comic only to find the shelves empty or the free gift gone just because someone has decided to get 10+ of these and sell them for their own profit....
It may be a dog eat dog world out there at times but to take away toys from a child (which is essentially what some people are doing) for their own profit is, in my opinion, wrong. I would go as far as to say that people buying these promos from ebay would be in the wrong as well as they are encouraging this behaviour.
Maybe being stricter about only one toy per person would help?
Thoughts from other AFOLs?
