I think that those that have Armored Spider-Man or Arctic Armor Iron Man would disagree with your idea that every character should be in the store for everyone to buy. These were special issue characters to encourage players to buy the physical cards. To then turn around and sell them in the store, even for a very high price, takes away from the uniqueness of these characters, and tells the community "don't buy our toys or cards or any other promotional thing we may eventually do because if you wait long enough you can just buy it in the game". I don't think this is the message they want to send.
The X-mas Song
Havok cooking with his plasma blasts,
Iceman nipping at your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by Ms. Dazzler,
X-folks dressed up like superheroes.
Everybody knows the blackbird is under the pool
and Jubilee's lights are oh so bright.
little x-babies with their eyes all aglow,
will escape the mojoverse tonight.
They know that Magneto is on his way;
he's brought The Brotherhood to come and play.
Every Xavier's student is going to spy,
to see if Hope really is the Messiah
And so I'm offering this simple tune,
to x-men from Cyclops to the Stepford Cuckoos,
although you've been hated and also been feared,
Merry X-mas to you.
I know I jumped around in the continuity quite a bit, but really the whole song was just the setup for the last line.

But there was a code for one of them in every toy. If you could get Classic Daredevil in 1-in-244 he would be very valuable.
Classic Wolverine is the same as those heroes and I think he would be released for 600 Gold, as the rest of the toy coded heroes before him. Eventually.

The brown and tan costume was used through 1980 to 1991. The 80s was the height of the X-men popularity in the comics. It lead to the animated TV show in '92. The 80s sealed Wolverine as the major fanboy favorite that he is today during the darker anti-hero modern age of comic books kicking off in the 80s. Classic doesnt just mean oldest.

Exactly. I can see why the Brown/Tan would get the "Classic" moniker.
Just like Blue-Furred Speedo Sportin' Apeman Beast is often referred to as Classic Beast.

I've got to say that I agree with some of the other folks responding to your posts.
Your argument is that "This game is marketed at kids and therefore the stuff should be attainable by kids." Well, currently Arctic Iron Man and Armored Spider-Man are NOT attainable in any reasonable way by kids. IF you can even find a copy on Ebay they go for $50-$150. Most kids can't or won't plunk down that kind of money for a hero (and they shouldn't!). But what is being explained to you is that by making the heroes available for a ton of silver - say, 250,000 silver, it makes it POSSIBLE for all players to get these heroes. Will it be EASY? No, not necessarily but I think you'd agree that it would be EASIER than it is now. I know I myself have purchased four boxes of SHSO cards at an approximate retail total of $400 and I haven't gotten a single loot hero!
Not sure why your daughter and you wouldn't have accumulated a boatload of silver over the course of the last year unless you're just not logging in every day and playing the game. I know I also play SHSO with my five year old son. We've been playing since about May 2012 and we followed a similar path to MPG - waited two months to become a member. Just spinning the wheel every day trying to get that one slice of gold gave me enough silver that I was able to purchase just about every silver hero instantly when I became a member.
So now what good is silver to me? I literally own everything in the game that you can get with silver (heroes, missions, 4 copies of every Unleashed card, questions, HQ stuff, goodies...). I spend thousands of silver just buying extra tickets for the prize wheel. What that does is really devalues silver for me but I still get it every time I go on a mission, play a card game, spin the wheel, or even collect 10 stars! But if I had a target - say, buying Arctic Iron Man for a million silver - I'd be saving that silver like a fiend!
Do you understand how having ultra-expensive chase characters would benefit everyone in the game - including your five year old son? Oh, and watch your language. There are kids on these message boards! =)
