Hi all, if anyone can help me out by answering any of the questions in this thread it would be much appreciated! I've always fancied making it out to the US for a Botcon, and I'm thinking about making a play for it next year. Thing is, I don't have a massive amount of disposable income. Now, I've read some threads where non-US peeps have said that they've covered (some or all, can't quite remember) the cost of going by selling the exclusives. This idea appeals to me because, well, from the past few years, only the Thundercracker toy has held any interest for me, and I would happily sell all the others. So I guess my questions are: 1) Roughly what kind of cash outlay is needed to actually get out there from the UK? (Like, Botcon tickets, flights, hotel costs etc) 2) Is it worth paying the non-US Collectors Club membership to do it? 3) How much of the outlay can you get back from selling the toys? I appreciate that I could answer some of this by doing a fair bit of research into prices and stuff on the web, but if there is anyone else from the UK that has done this before and could give me a few rough pointers, to help me decide if it's feasible to have a crack at, it would be much much appreciated!
