its just an fyi since a lot are still looking for them, the wind rider cubs have been sold out for 2 months now on the blizz store and not available to buy even if you ring them ( i have tried) ...only way to currently get them is thru ebay :(
the gentleman from blizzard said he couldn't not tell me if they are to be restocked as they are limited anyway..

Heh, I would say the Gryphon Hatchling is in the same boat eventaully... I would further add if you don't have it get it because next thing you'll find is blizzard sold out and all the vultures who hoarded them will pop out on ebay wanting 200 bucks. :evil:

For once I got mine in time, which is so unlike me. I still kick myself for not getting collectors Burning Crusade when I should and now if I ever get it I will pay through the nose for it. :(

Yup for a few months I was up in the air about buying them. I had looked the week prior and they where both there and decided that next week I will get them. Then when it came time to buy them the Cub was sold out. I am still kicking myself for waiting.

I think one or both has been sold out before. Since its a physical item it probably takes longer to restock than the digital-only pets, but I'm guessing that they will eventually get them back. They are likely both popular and profitable for them.

I did *just* get mine. Perhaps I am lucky.

Personally I have mixed views regarding rare/bought pets/mounts.

On one hand it's nice to have something very few people have but on the other the wrong people are profiting from it. At the end of the day, however you jazz it up, all pets and mounts are are 1's and 0's. Digital goods in a digtal world. Should WoW end tomorrow, your £300 mount you bought on eBay is worthless.

I'd like to see old pets and mounts from deleted acheivements, old TCG packs, Blizzard Store/collectors editions etc. be available to all. Be it through the online store or through the Black Market AH or similar (just needs more stock).

I don't think you should see it as a "future proof" investment, but more as a thing to enjoy right now.

And if you really want to see it that way, any goal, item, achievement, gold, level in WOW is worth nothing as it's all 1's and 0's.

The Black Market AH could be a good solution for pets and mounts that were "regular content" as in achievement rewards, quest rewards etc. and available to any regular player really, while I do not think that it would ever be right or fair towards those players who actually paid money or participated in promos/BlizzCons etc. to make those collector edition / TCG / Blizzcon mounts/pets available to everyone. That content has to stay exclusive to keep collector editions/TCG legit. And while it's fun to get as many pets together as possible it's just perfectly fine that not everyone can obtain "every pet ever available in wow" due to those restrictions.

TCG stuff all ready can show up on the BMAH. And I'm fairly certain I've heard of Black/Plagued Protodrakes showing up there too. You won't find any Blizzcon or CE pets/mounts there, however. Those are exclusive to their promotions.

I justified those two as a birthday present for my daughter. Just snatch the card from its neck before you wrap and viola no wife-guilt for the pets lol

I feel ya, Formerruling! One bio son, one step son, 2 plush pets = justified and guilt-free! 2 years later, it's still great when they come up with them in hand and ask to see me summon or battle with theirs :D

I can confirm that the TCG pets and previously 'removed' mounts such as Plagued Proto Drake can now be found on the BMAH. Not so much with removed pets but I think it's only a matter of time tbh.

Its very few "removed" mounts that are available. I'm not sure I've heard of any other than the Naxx proto drakes (which quite honestly, should have been put back on their original achievements ages ago when they dropped the ridiculous idea of removing the achievement mounts each tier). Otherwise, the mounts that show up on there are just rare (or TCG), which is what you see from the pets too.
