People weren't happy about that for various reasons such as not being able to make it San Diego, but those were the terms. You wanted a Gleek, you went to SDCC (or ebay, but that's an entirely different matter). Period.
Mattel didn't back track and suddenly give Gleek to people who bought the twins from their site after the show. I don't think Cryptic should play fast and loose with "exclusive" and its meaning.
Actually, an LTS is a subscription to a service. There is no physical product that can be sold or traded. Everything in the game is owned by Cryptic and perks are really just status symbols.
