Hahaha ok buddy, glad you found your copy so you can feel special. Dont forget to bring your helmet.
And yes $150 is nothing for a teenager living with their parents while holding a part time job and not paying any rent or utilities, which I'm guessing fits your bill.
You don't pay extra for a Collector's edition, limited item (of anything) for it to later be mass produced for everyone. Defeats the meaning of the entire product.
The CE store should not be provided access to till the next expansion comes out and is sold as a new expansion CE.
Anything before that is a ripoff to everyone that paid extra.
To name a few.
Does buying the CE make you a special snowflake? Nope
Should people be upset at not gaining access to the VIP area because they didn't buy the CE? Nope
It's $150, if you see value in it, such as the Authenticator, VIP area, extra physical content, such as the statue, then it's no big deal, buy the CE. IF you don't see value in it, then you shouldn't be upset that you don't have access to one section of a space station, that sells gear cosmetically different from anything you can obtain, but with the EXACT same stats. It's simply cosmetic differences, and an area the shouldn't be too big that you don't have access to.
I didn't see people complaining about the CE for any other game giving exclusive in game content, such as a mini diablo in WoW, or bonus XP tombs in WaR, a hearth totem in AOC, etc.
This bonus area, and gear does NOT give anyone an advantage. And since the CE is still available for pre-order at a multitude of retailers, you are still able to buy a copy and gain access yourself, IF you see a value in it.
Selling the VIP separately after the game is released? Meh, I don't care, and yes I have a CE (Mostly for the authenticator, as BW and EA haven't said diddly on when they will be available outside of the CE).

Working people also receive paychecks, not "good payment each month".
By your sentence structure I believe you to be a school student posting either via your phone or a school computer. You either have a very small screen to work with or you have to consistently hide what your doing from the teacher leaving very little time to proof read your posts before you post them.

Closing since the OPs question has been thoroughly answered and you are all just flaming each other.
