    Just seems strange to me. You want to go to get the Botcon items and then run to the forum here to sell them.

    You lose more money than you make unless you live in CA. Oh....... but it's the experience...... Yea', I want to wait in long lines and deal with A-holes.

    Ha', and most of you complain about Ebay. Time= MONEY!

    While I don't necessarily agree with the practice, I have known folks who have had their trips paid for thanks to selling the con exclusives.

    Ebay:
    I've never had an issue with anyone selling anything they have for whatever price they want. Go for it, I say.

    It will be interesting though if the folks selling these items for inflated prices then expect OTHER sellers to later sell them their goods at cost + shipping. I know I'm keeping a list ;)

    For many people, selling the figures is a way to subsidize their Botcon experience, they don't fly all the way out there just to make a profit on the toys. They'd go anyway, for the dealer room, guests, friends, etc., but selling the exclusives makes it more affordable.

    Looks like the a-holes aren't just at Botcon.

    Ebay:
    The entire first page in sales is Botcon. Price difference among the sellers is insane.

    As others have said, people often sell Con exclusives to help subsidize their trips. This time of year always has a lot of people selling Botcon stuff in the Junkion Forum. Whether you agree with this practice or not is purely opinion, but generalizing and calling people "A-holes" seems a bit much. As such, I don't really see any good coming from this thread, so goodbye.
