I would never pressume to tell people what they can do with their hard earned money but in our hobby we have to keep in mind that these are toys. Most of us started collecting as kids and toys are made (aimed) for kids. There are high end items made (aimed) for adults.
However complaining about a kid getting clones makes no sense to me especially when you want more clones yourself. You probably would have bought all the clones yourself just like the kid did.
I myself have lost many toys to kids before but I do it happily b/c instead of sitting in a shelve or box somewhere I know they will get played with until they break or are to loose to stand up and for me that is what it is all about. Clearly I may be in the minority.
